Thought for the day: Which new camera should I get?

A person I know wants to get a new much better camera system. Landscape, birds, birds in flight, night, etc.  She has a friend who does great birding pictures with a Canon.  And she asked me what I thought:
All the full frame cameras in the past 5 years are great. The top end mirrorless cameras from Canon, Nikon and Sony, and their wide selection of lenses, are truly excellent!

All the cameras you can get today are junk compared to what you can get in a year or two.

Instead of micromanaging specifications, see if you can borrow (in a store at least if not renting) all the cameras and go on a ‘date’ with them. See which fits >>you<< best.

A person who has a Canon will probably recommend a Canon.
A person who has a Nikon will probably recommend a Nikon.
A person who has a Sony will tell you that a Sony is best.

But which fits your hands?
Which is easiest for you to carry/use?
Which menu systems are good enough for your usage (this may take some work on your part to learn them well enough).

Also note the bon mot that “you date your camera body, you marry the lens (system).”

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
