The Most Expensive Cameras Ever
Starting a business taking pictures, or even taking it up as a semi-pro hobby, means having to invest in some serious equipment. Modern smartphones takes brilliant pictures, but when it comes to getting the very best photographers possible, there’s nothing quite as good as a DSLR camera coupled with a good lens. Any most photographers can attest that putting decent gear together takes a whole lot of money, and anyone with a small bank account should probably stay away unless they intend to make the money back.
Although there are a couple of different ways of getting nice pictures, nothing quite beats having a pricey camera, and these are some of the most expensive in the world.
Canon EOS 1D Mark III
Canon is a name that even those not interested in photography will probably know, and that’s because the company has built a reputation for themselves as one of the leading camera-related corporations in the world. Their products have been consistently high quality, and the 1D Mark III is arguably their best creation, a camera that’s become a favourite for professionals around the world. Based on CMOS circuitry, the Mark III can take high resolution pictures instantly and save them to whichever memory format is plugged. Compared to the other cameras on this list, the Mark III, which comes in at around $12000, is still one of the cheapest.
Phase One 65
The Phase One 65 is a state-of-the-art digital camera is the ultimate choice for taking high resolution photos that are generally far superior to even the photos that the Mark III is capable of. The Phase One is aimed at those that need the best quality possible, and is the kind of camera that would be most likely to be found at big fashion shows and even on movie sets. Getting a hold of one of these kinds of cameras will set someone back around $40000, which is maybe a small price to pay for the overall quality.
Hasselblad H4D 200 MS
As one of the world’s most expensive cameras, the Hasselblad H4D is like no other, providing the kind of quality reserved for only the best projects on offer, whether it’s the set of the latest blockbuster, or a first class fashion show. It’s a camera that almost always needs to be set on a tripod or stand of some sort. The sensors and the lenses that are part of this set up are considered the best on the planet, providing a level of quality that few other devices can even come close to matching.
The Hasselblad is a camera that requires the user cough up the princely sum of almost $50000, and that does not include the various memory solutions and extended lenses means that it’s a price that can quickly skyrocket, and it’s important to keep that in mind before buying a new one.
