We're confident we'll be seeing a lot more of this fantastic format in the future, with prices continuing to fall as a result. Portable hard drives are perfect for storing images and video when you are on the move, and for boosting the often limited capacity of a laptop computer.

This latest WD My Passport design comes in black, white, red, blue, orange and yellow colour options. Read more: Best portable hard drives. Portable SSDs are much more expensive than regular hard drives, but they are also smaller and lighter and WAY faster.

This is not SanDisk's top-of-the-range portable SSD - that honour currently goes to the Extreme Pro Portable SSD V2, but this cheaper non-Pro version is still the one to go for. That's because almost no computer currently available can fully exploit the extra speed offered by the Extreme Pro, so in real-world use it's barely faster than this SSD.

Capacities come in GB, GB, 1TB and 2TB, but it's the GB option that makes most sense unless you definitely need more space, as prices pretty much double in line with capacity. If you just need a backup or storage disk for your desktop computer, you don't need to pay a fortune.

Seagate's no-frills desktop hard drive comes in capacities from 4TB to 16TB, with the 6TB and 8TB options currently being best value and spacious enough for around 1. The drive's fast USB 3.

As photographers and videographers, we spend half as much time in front of our computers as we do behind the camera! Here are some kit suggestions to make this computing time faster, more effective and more efficient. The only issue with that is few XPS 15 configs come with this display, and they're inevitably at the pricier end of the range.

The extra cash does also buy you plenty of performance courtesy of a 11th-gen, 8-core Intel Core i9 processor, and you can choose from 16GB right up to a whopping 64GB of RAM, though we'd only recommend the latter if you'll be editing high res video as well as images.

It even possesses in-body image stabilization — which, despite having to stabilize a gigantic medium format sensor, is actually on par with the IBIS systems on Sony's smaller full-frame sensors. While it lacks the vertical grip of the ten-grand Fujifilm GFX , which our reviewer thinks is a good thing , it otherwise boasts newer and more powerful capabilities squeezed into a much smaller and much cheaper body — though Fujifilm's medium format lenses mean that this is still far from a compact system.

The image quality is simply spectacular; for ultimate stills shooting, this is almost unbeatable. It even shoots very good 8K 30p video, too!

Read our full Fujifilm GFX II review. Don't be fooled by its smaller APC-C-sized sensor, the Fujifilm X-H2S is a real powerhouse when it comes to professional photography.

The new flagship camera in the Fujifilm X-mount range, the X-H2S has it all, with a chunky pro-spec body and handling, a top-mounted status panel, and a fifth-generation sensor offering four times the speed of its predecessor.

The X-H2S can shoot at 40fps with minimal screen blackout, capture 6K video or 4K at up to p, has in-body stabilization, a flip-out vari-angle screen, and a 5.

This camera is the most expensive in Fujifilm's X range but is still a nice saving over a lot of the other cameras on this list.

Where the Nikon D6 is built for sheer speed, durability, and responsiveness, the D is built for resolution — though it can still capture images at 7fps, or 9fps with the optional battery grip.

Some people say that the Z8 is the mirrorless D; I prefer to say that the D is the DSLR version of a Z8. Read our full Nikon D review. The Panasonic S5 II X is effectively in a class of its own when it comes to a camera capable of content creation, videography and filmmaking.

In fact, short of a cinema camera, its closest rival is the camera for which it's an upgrade: the Panasonic S5 II. My colleague Jon Devo has spent much more time using the two cameras than I have, so I'll quote his five-star review: "With its most direct competition coming from its stablemate, the more specialized S5 II X faces some fundamental challenges from a consumer perspective.

The extra features, such as SSD recording, HDMI RAW output, All-I compression, Apple ProRes , and Streaming functionality, make it an enticing proposition. This is especially true if the all-black design appeals to you.

Read our full Panasonic Lumix S5 IIX review. Jack of all trades, master of most, there's nothing that the A1 can't shoot.

Check, with its unreal 30fps continuous shooting. Fine detail? Check, with its Check, with its 8K recording capability. This all-round performance comes with a few caveats, however, the first one being cost. It's more expensive than the MP medium format Fujifilm GFX S, for example — apples and oranges, we know, but the very comparable Nikon Z8 and Z9 also come in considerably cheaper.

The 30fps burst isn't always achievable sometimes topping out at fps, which is still impressive but less impressive than the spec sheet , but for my money the biggest oversight is that this uber-powerful machine only has a tilting screen.

I know not everyone likes full articulation for stills, but an 8K camera with a non-articulating screen is a bit of an oversight. Overall, though, if you want a camera that can take on any possible assignment, this is it. Read our full Sony A1 review. A camera so good that I went out and bought one myself, the EOS R5 is an absolute beast for stills.

Its Dual Pixel AF CMOS II is nothing short of a cheat code for wildlife and sports photography, especially combined with its 20fps top burst speed.

And if its pixel-packed 45MP resolution isn't enough for you, it's capable of capturing incredible MP yes, four-hundred megapixel photographs. For stills, then, I rank it as Canon's best camera. For the best stills performance, though, I genuinely think the R5 stands alone.

Read our full Canon EOS R5 review. While the world is increasingly a mirrorless one, a huge number of pro photographers still use DSLRs.

This is partly because professionals are less interested in spec-chasing than enthusiasts; cameras are simply tools to do a job, and DSLRs are still excellent tools.

So workhorses like the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III , Canon EOS 5D Mark IV , Nikon D and Nikon D6 are still very often seen in the hands of the pros. That said, when it does come time for a professional to upgrade, they invariably go mirrorless. It depends on the photographer, and on the profession.

Fine art photographers, archival photographers, and many commercial photographers deliver their work in the highest quality and resolution possible. This often takes the form of medium format cameras , such as the MP Phase One XF IQ4 MP Camera System , or the MP Fujifilm GFX S and Hasselblad X2D C.

Picking the best professional camera is not just about picking the one with the best or most enticing specifications. You have to look at the system as a whole, its lenses, its other models, and what is set to be released in the future.

Before making a choice, it's worth asking yourself a series of questions:. If this is the case, it's well worth looking into whether there's any potential for compatibility between your existing and new system i.

using lens mount adapters. Think about the kind of work you need and the lenses you need for it, and check whether the system you're considering can meet those needs. Lens guides can be useful here, such as our guides to the best Canon lenses or the best Nikon lenses.

While both DSLRs and mirrorless cameras can and do produce excellent video, mirrorless currently has the edge here, so if the video is part of your portfolio then it's worth factoring this into consideration.
