Top 25 Photography Trends in April

From 4K Vlogging Cameras to High-Performing Mirrorless Cameras

— April 28, 2018 — Tech
The invention of photography upended the trajectory of art history, and indeed the history of humanity as a whole, and while the April 2018 photography trends listed here don't necessarily represent that kind of seismic shift, the innovations certainly haven't diminished entirely.

With smartphone cameras becoming increasingly advanced, the traditional camera companies have had to offer dazzling capabilities in order to compete. Fujifilm's latest high-end camera, the X-H1, includes a built in image stabilization feature that maintains image quality and prevents videographers from having to stabilize their shots in post-production. Leica's new CL tackles another issue, with a much smaller body that the typical DSLR so that it isn't daunting to bring around on various adventures.

Smartphone creators won't give camera companies any slack, though. Many different companies are harnessing their AI training to make altering images easy and automatic.
