In comparison with Compact Cameras (which have good image quality and are the lightest) and DSLR (which are heavier but have the best image quality) it seems we have to choose between Quality and Weight…

…and it was the case, until the introduction of Mirrorless Cameras.

Combining a DSLR class sensor in a Compact camera body, these newly introduced cameras can provide the best image quality of all while being just as light as a compact camera.

Nikon Z50

Nikon’s most affordable Mirrorless camera with a crop (APS-C) sensor and a very interesting price below 1.000 EUR.

Image Quality is promised to be even better than in the D7500, so we have lots of hope with this camera and what could bring in the future.

Nikon Z6

Full-Frame companion of the Z50, with the associated advantages: reduced Noise – to – Signal ratio and increased Dinamyc Range to capture the best images in contrast situations (like this shot of Gran Canaria island for the Summit of Teide peak)

Sony Alpha 7 ii

Finally, what would be for us a dream camera with the best reviews available on the Internet.

Sony is actually producing the sensor of many other brand’s DSLR, so there is no surprise that their own product line is one of the best in the market.

But, also true is, the price to pay could be very high!

Usually featuring an smaller sensor (than DSLR reflex, dateiled below) they are a great option that balances cost, image quality and portability.

Compact cameras are for us the best “grab and go” solution for quick trips and adventures, trying to look for distant horizons.

Actually, the Panasonic Lumix FZ72, is the camera that holds the current Distant Sight World Record.

Panasonic Lumix FZ72

The Distant Sight World Record camera is a compact digital zoom camera capable of providing 16 Megapixel images and a 60x Optical Zoom.

Panasonic TZ71

An smaller version of the FZ72, this time with 12 Megapixel sensor and 30x optical zoom. A really light camera with only 217 grams of weight, makes it perfect to have it in you pocket, just in case an opportunity arises!

Sony RX100 VII

If you want a Compact Camera that almost behaves like a pro one, this is your option.

And, well, such a long name has to mean that this is a good option!

Digital SLR feature a bigger sensor than many of the Digital Cameras out there (also bigger than mobile phone cameras). This allows for better image quality and less noise.

The Manual control of Digital SLR Cameras also allow for better pictures in challenging conditions (such as the ones found in the summit of a Mountain at 6AM) with low light, faint distant objects and (usually) wind.

Body-only options with high quality images tested by our team in the most remote areas to achieve world record class pictures.

Nikon D7500

Crop Sensor DSLR, which is the best evolution (to date) of the Nikon D5100, which has been used several times during the last years by the Beyond Horizons team, to capture sights like this one of the Alps from the Pyrenees.

Nikon D750

The Full Format Version of the D7500, will offer a better image quality and better performance under low light conditions, given the bigger sensor.

In general, Full Frame Cameras (with a 35mm sensor built in) gather more light and have significant lower levels of noise.

Canon EOS 90D

Canon’s equivalent to the D7500 is a Crop Sensor camera with an incredible resolution of 32.5 MP and a very high image quality.

Actually, both Nikon and Canon’s best cameras will perform the same in practical situations… It all comes to each one’s favourite brand!

A camera is nothing with a lense attached to it, and even more in the extremely demanding conditions of a ultra – distant picture.

We have selected some of the best lenses in the market, ranging in prices and portability, to fit your needs in the best possible way

Sigma 18 – 300 mm F 3.5 – 6.3 DC Macro HSM

There is an option to use a Telephoto Zoom Lense, like the Sigma 70 – 300, which is not expensive at all and can provide good details, whilst being also practical for other daily life pictures like trips of portraits.

Benefits: Low Budget, Different Uses, Not Heavy

Tamron SP 150-600mm F / 5-6.3 Di VC USD G2

This is one of the best Lenses for Long Distance Photography in the balance between Budget and Image Quality. The long range of this Telephoto lense allows you up to an (equivalent) of 900 mm. which is more than enough for any landscape and Far Sighting.

On the other side, it is more heavy than the Sigma above, but it compensates that with a great Image Quality.

If you like as well Nature Photography, you will love this Lense.

Benefits: Image Quality, Zoom, Autofocus (more on this later).

Apochromatic Refractor SkyWatcher ED80

This is absolutely the top of the line here.

With the only addition of Manual Focus (which is, I would say, a more real approach to Photography) a Telescope added to your DSLR can provide the best Image Quality of the products we have highlighted for you.

This comes as a result of the simple optics (usually 2 or 3 lenses, far less than the 9 of a usual telephoto lense) and the Apochromatic Coating and Materials used. This is usually a very valued characteristic in Astrophotography, which we use in our benefit for Long Distance Pictures.

Anyway… what can be better to capture sights at more than 400 Km. away than what it’s use to image the Stars!

Benefits: Image Quality, Lense Simplicity, Multiuse.
