Best Compact cameras under $700


Best Compact cameras under $700

We have selected the 7 best compact cameras under $700, which the users can choose as their need. but before we move forward let’s take a look at the list of camera with respective price tags.

Canon G7X Mk2 Panasonic ZS100 Ricoh GR II Nikon DL 24-85 Canon G5X Fuji X70 Canon G1X Mk2
$699 $697 $619 $646 $699 $699 $649

If we talk about the types of sensors used in all these cameras than here out of all these cameras only two of the cameras Ricoh GR II and Fujifilm X-70 sports APS-C size sensors while the others feature 1” sensor and only Canon G1X Mark II in the list that comes with 1.5 inch sensor.

sensor size comparison

The sensor size plays an important role in image quality. As we know the camera with larger APS-C size sensors helps you to capture better quality images with more details, it is also better for isolating a subject in focus while having the rest of the image blurred (DOF), the larger sensors generally provide more dynamic range and improved low-light performance.  Hence the camera with APS-C size sensors is definitely superior to the cameras which sport 1” sensor or 1.5 inch sensors.


Best Compact Camera


We have used all the cameras for several week and finally we came to conclusion that the Fuji X70 is best among all under $700 price tag.

Based on our extensive research we have found that the Fuji X70 camera is the best camera available under the $700 range. The fuji X70 camera comes with 16 Megapixel  a unique X-Trans pixel array and the sensor is designed in such a way that it comes with a randomized pixel pattern to eliminate the need of an optical low-pass filter for reducing moiré and aliasing and X-Trans sensor also works to provide highly effective noise reduction and makes it a superior among them.

Due to Hybrid AF sensor the Fuji X70 camera locks AF in now time and captures teck sharp images without losing any single frame. Fuji touch screen offers touch and shoot AF, so you can capture your image with a pin-point focus on the subject.

Fuji X-70 in camera RAW converter works great, it gives you excellent JPEG files with rich details, sharpness and dynamic range.

Built-in Wi-Fi permits wireless image sharing to and remote camera control from linked smartphones and tablets using the Fujifilm Camera Remote app.

Best camera under $700 range, features low-pass less architecture. Hybrid APS-C CMOS sensor with 51200 ISO range, touch and shoot LCD with WiFi and NFC.

camera we like

Ricoh GR is also a excellent choice just after X-70, the camera features almost same core specification as of its predecessor GR expect the presence of wireless connectivity.

The image quality of the Ricoh GR camera is indeed very good and while using it for more than a week I personally found that camera have very well controlled noise performance and images are completely usable upto 3200.

However we are keeping below Fuji X 70 camera since the GR II camera doesn’t have hybrid AF system, uses old sensor as of it predecessor.

Final word: The Ricoh GR is really a very good camera but at the same price tag we are getting X-70 that really features excellent core specification compared to Ricoh GR II camera, so we recommend you to go with the X-70.

Best Compact with large sensor and Bright Zoom Lens

Buy Canon G1X Mark II from Amazon || B&H ||

Among all the camera the Canon G1X Mark II creates excellent depth of field with its bright zoom lens paired with large 1.5 inch sensor, undoubtedly while using the camera I feel that one of the best Canon compact camera I have ever used. The Canon G1X Mark II is a excellent camera for its price.

Canon G1X Mark II 2nd on our list due to image quality when compared to Fuji X70, but the camera offers 5X optical zoom with Hybrid optical image stabilization.

However the Canon G1X Mark II video mode is not as good as RX100 M3 8 Nikon DL 24-85mm camera, hence you want a ultra-compact size camera and DOF doesn’t matter to you (less interested in portrait shots) then you should go with Sony RX100 M3 or DL 24-85.

Final Word: One of the best Compact camera ever made by canon with rock solid body, larger sensor and bright lens.

Other Recommendation

Best Video Camera with Blazing Fast Auto-Foust – Nikon DL 24-85, unfortunately the shopping schedule of the camera is delayed till sep, 2016. We can’t comment on the image quality or usge of the camera.

Get Super Macro Shots From Your Smartphone @ $0


Smartphones  are one creative invention of this current generation, whether quick access to internet or snapping the most desire subjects, Smartphone is effectively dealing with the  all the mysterious works instantly. As you know the passion for selfie among teenagers to adults is now a common thing and we already have read so many often that the Smartphone camera is constantly eating digital cameras’ market.   We see nothing wrong in photography via Smartphone but actually we miss something in Smartphone and that something is its lack in focal control that is due to the absence of interchangeable lenses from this.

If you don’t want to miss even a tiny detail from the images then here is a little hack that can turn your smartphone into a stunning macro camera.

It’s good experimental news how to use a simple water droplet to turn your mobile device into a macro powerhouse exhibited by Instructables user Znaffi .


These are the things that we need to do:

  • Your own Smartphone or tablet
  • A towel for drying up excess water.
  • Headphones with volume buttons (or a dedicated bluetooth remote for actually clicking the shutter)
  • Anything for for dispensing your droplet, the list may include Cotton swabs, syringe, or medicine dropper.
  • Droplets must be big enough to cover the entire camera but be more careful, that the bigger drops can break the surface tension and runs all over the place.
  • You can use headphones or some other remote shutter release device then take your photos while holding your macro subject above the camera.

What Znaffi said

“The smaller the drop is, the closer you can focus on your object. The bigger the drop gets, the more it flattens out. When the drop flattens out, we lose the effect of a lens, as the drop has to be in a ‘dome’ shape.”

Basic Rules of Composition in Photography

At first we have to understand that what composition is in general terms. Composition is not applied only in photography but it applies to every kind of art whether it is dance, literature, music and so on. Without proper composition an individual is unable to give proper results in photography, visual art, dance and so on. So composition explains the positioning or arranging the elements in any type of work of art.
Now we are going to discuss what is composition in photography? Composing means “arranging different types of elements available in a particular frame of reference that attracts a viewer eye”. Without a proper composition interesting objects can be spoiled. With a proper composition an uninteresting subject’s can attracts the audience. So we can understand that what role the composition plays in a photography.

The aperture, angle and focal length also affect the composition. + we also have some elements of composition like colors, shadows, shapes and etc. An example of flood photography, where an individual who is a photographer he wants to show the audience that how flood destroys everything. So it depends on the circumstances or cases or subjects that which type of composition a photographer should implement in a photograph.



Patterns in plant Leaf

Pattern exist in our environment the only thing is to see them through our inner eyes. It exists in an artificial and natural form. If we understand the pattern we can found it everywhere i.e. in a market, monument and etc. lighting is also important in pattern. If we take the example of fields during overcast day, the audience lacks interest in that picture.

The second component is texture. When the light strikes on the subject at different angles then the texture helps in making proper composition.

Symmetry-sample-imageRichard Taylor dicktay2000

Symmetry is a line which creates a balance in a photograph. If we divide the subject in a half in a proper way then it is known as the image is symmetrical. Generally we are using two types of symmetry in photography i.e. vertical line symmetry and horizontal line symmetry.
Line is also one of the elements of composition in photography. There are different types of lines like horizontal, vertical, diagonal and converging lines present in the most of the composition that we capture and if used properly it will create impact in the audience eyes.



DOF – Focus on the subject you want to show it the viewers

Depth of field (DOF) used to stand out the subject from the environment, lower aperture such as f /1.2 or f/1.8 helps you to focus on the subject and create a beautiful bokeh( background blur) in the image.

Looney 11 and Sunny 16 Rules


Looney 11 rules

Looney 11 rule is called as Looney f/11 rule. This rule helps us to capture proper amount of light to the sensor and result is perfectly balanced image (not too over exposed or under exposed ). There are different types of lighting conditions like during full moon we can use aperture f/11 similarly in case of half moon we are using the aperture f/8. So we are using different aperture in different lighting condition to get a perfect shot. Take a look at the table below and try to remember it when you capture your next Moon image.

Looney 11 rules


Sunny 16 rules

There is another type of rule we are using which is known as sunny 16 rules or sunny f/16 rule and is used in photography during daylight. This Rule helps us to get properly exposed image without any trouble. There are different types of lighting condition available during day time like snow or sand and we have to set our aperture based on that type of scene. In snow and sand we should use the aperture value f/22, similarly in sunny location the aperture should be at f/16. When we set the aperture the shutter speed should also changed according to rule, for example when the aperture is f/22 then the shutter speed should be kept at 1/50 second similarly when the aperture is f/16, the shutter speed is 1/100 second and so on. Take a look at the tables below for better understanding…

ISO should be kept as same as shutter speed to get properly exposed images, * for first setting if ISO 50, for 2nd – F16, 1/100 and ISO 100, F11, 1/200 and ISO 200 and so on…

Sunny-16-rules-image-1Take a look at the table below and you can use as cheat sheet for getting perfect shot at different lighting condition,

Rule of Thirds

rule-of-thirds-imageThis theory was given by John Thomas Smith in 1797.It is one of the basic principles of photographic composition. It applies to film, art, photography and design. The basic principle is to break down the image space into nine equal parts in horizontal and vertical lines i.e. it makes three rows and three columns. This theory helps to balance the image in a proper manner and it provides natural look to viewer. This skill is already presents in some people who are engaged with the profession of photography.

Before applying this theory we have to look certain things in the object i.e. at first we have to understand the point of interest in the portrait. For example if  we are taking the image of a person we have to look what is the point of attraction in that image whether it is his eyes or his lips and so on. There are many image editing tools available like photoshop, MS picture manager., etc that helps photographer to recompose images after they shot. This theory can be applied in any object whether it’s a portrait, landscape or anything.


  • Understand the important elements of subject and position them near the intersection lines of grids. As the object is close, we don’t have to perfectly line the element.
  • We should provide some empty spaces in picture that helps to maintain balance in a overall composition. We should not place the object in the middle because it creates distraction.
  • We should give more concentration to lighter and darker areas during shooting of landscape. Particularly in landscape shooting high contrast will attract the viewer more.
  • This theory can be implemented with shooting of portraits. We can concentrate on the eyes, hairs and cheeks of portraits which can be point of attraction in that image.
  • In street photography it is very difficult to control the affect of other object. So try to hold the object i.e. color and shape in the environment.
