video play icon

This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Taking exceptional pictures of the vistas of nature requires a number of specific features from your photographic equipment, and the cameras for landscape photography on our list check off most, if not all, of those boxes. They each boast high-resolution sensors, and many are built without an anti-aliasing filter, allowing for much greater resolution and sharper details in each and every shot. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

1. Sony a7R IV

2. Canon EOS R5

3. Nikon Z7 Mark II

Editor's Notes

January 20, 2021:

It was a fairly busy round of updates, as many of our previously favored models had been replaced by new and improved offerings since we last visited this list.

The Canon EOS R was was switched out by the Canon EOS R5 and the Nikon Z7 was replaced by the Nikon Z7 Mark II — which feature 45- and 46-megapixel sensors, respectively. At the same time, the Sony a7R III got swapped out for the Sony a7R IV — a 61-megapixel, full-frame model – and the Fujifilm GFX 50S lost its spot to the Fujifilm GFX 100, which boasts an impressive 102-megapixel sensor.

January 28, 2019:

Truly good landscape photography is an expensive venture. The Hasselblad that made our list is evidence of that, though it's admittedly geared toward the top professionals in fashion and nature shooting more than it is the average consumer. That's one of the reasons it didn't break into the top spots the way recent offerings from Nikon and Sony did, though another medium format option, the Fujifilm GFX 50S, earned its place due in large part to its competitive price point.

4. Fujifilm GFX 100

5. Hasselblad H6D-100C

6. Nikon D850

7. Canon EOS 5DS R

8. Pentax K-1 Mark II

9. Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX1 RII

10. Leica M Monochrom Type 246

His past career landed him a depth of knowledge in tools and hardware, while his current career schooled him in audio, video and camera equipment. During his leisure time, he’s learned lots about outdoor gear, and years of tiresome backyard maintenance have taught him all about pools and hot tubs. His recreational pursuits include rest, relaxation and revolutionary action, and his roommate’s a hairless cat.
