How to get the best of both worlds for a backup camera: the best one for the price and the best camera that can fit inside the best case.
We took a closer look at the cameras on this list and the pros and cons for each.
Nokia 808 PureView (2016) If you’re in the market for a camera that will help you get shots of the ice, then you’re going to want to pick up the Nokia 808.
The Nokia 808 comes with a 24MP Sony IMX135 sensor, a 12MP CMOS sensor, 2x Optical Image Stabilization, 2-axis OIS, and a 5-axis AF system.
This means that it’s capable of shooting up to 2K video at 60 fps and 1080p video at 240 fps.
There’s also an LED flash for those moments when you need to put the focus back on the action.
In addition, the 808 also comes with dual rear cameras that you can use to take some of the best shots of your game, which is where it really shines.
You’ll have to pay extra to get a second front camera, but the 808 is a solid option if you need a camera for the ice.
Panasonic GH5 (2016 and 2017) If the Nokia 800 is your camera of choice, then the Panasonic GH 5 is a great choice.
It has a 24mp Sony IMx135 sensor with a 12Mp CMOS Sensor, a 5MP CM OIS sensor, and an 8MP f/2.0 Super-telephoto lens.
The Panasonic GH has been the go-to camera for video for a while now, and the Panasonic is still one of the most popular brands in the world.
The GH5 comes with an 8-megapixel f/1.8 main camera with 1-axis stabilization, 3x Optical image stabilization, and 2x phase detection AF.
It also comes packed with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, but it does lack a 3.0mm jack, so you’ll have the option to use an external one.
The image quality is really good, and it has great performance and low noise performance.
The best thing about the Panasonic camera is that it comes with its own app store.
There are tons of options to tweak the camera’s settings, so there’s no need to worry about it going away.
Sony Alpha A7R II (2016-2018) The Sony Alpha is an entry-level camera that is a good value for the money.
It comes with two 24MP CM OS sensors, a 4MP f.2.8 Super-compact sensor, 1.1x Optical zoom, a 1.3x Telephoto zoom lens, and 5-megapixels (up to 28MP) for $349.
That means you can get great shots with this camera.
The A7SII also has a great camera for around $200, but its sensor is less powerful and it’s not as good for video.
The Alpha is a really good option if the price is right.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2 (2017) If there’s one thing you can expect from Panasonic’s DMC cameras, it’s great image quality.
The DMC G2 has a 16MP f2.2 sensor and an f/4.5 lens.
Its 8-Megapixel sensor has a f/3.5 aperture and an APS-C resolution of 641 pixels per inch.
The Sony A7 is the only other entry-grade DMC camera that has a 28-megaxis sensor and f/8.5 focal length.
If you can find one of these cameras for less than $300, it could be the right choice for you.
Sony Xperia XZ Premium (2016-) Sony’s latest flagship model is the XZ, which has a 25MP sensor, an f1.9 aperture, a 50mm lens, 2.3X optical zoom, and f1,800 ISO.
The XZ has the same camera as the Xperia X Compact and X Compact, which means you won’t be able to find one with an f2 aperture.
However, if you’re looking for the best picture quality, the X Z is the one to get.
It features an impressive 12MP sensor with 1.4x Optical Zoom and 1.7x Telephotos.
The camera is also quite fast and you can shoot up to 4K video and up to 1080p at 30 fps with up to 200fps burst mode.
The main reason to get this camera is the price tag, but if you can afford it, it is a worthwhile investment.
Canon EOS Rebel T6 (2017-2019) If your budget is in the $600-$700 range, then this is the camera for you, right?
The Canon Eos Rebel T5 is a fantastic entry-tier camera for about $200. The T5 has
