Street Photography Upgrade Search
1

Hello -

I shoot street candids from the hip. I've been using the Fuji XT30 and love it, but considering an upgrade from aps-c.

Here are some specs I'd love, not super price sensitive:

  • Full frame
  • Compact-ish
  • OIS
  • Fully articulating LCD screen. Just tilting would be okay too.
  • Weather sealed. Light rain not underwater
  • Interchangeable lenses with some nice compact primes for 35/50mm
  • Good autofocus system
  • >=24 mp
  • shoots video

Does this camera exist?

The sony a7c seems to check a good amount of the boxes but I've read mixed reviews of it. An rxr iii might do but it's been in limbo for years.

Thanks so much.

I'm eying the Sony A7 II myself. Older model, affordable. But 24mp at full frame.

There is some complaining about AF and how much A7R IV is,

I don't have a lot of info on that but street photography, AF can make the shot or just a blurry after thought

I wonder how they did it before AF
