Fujifilm has been known in recent years for producing cameras with an APS-C sensor that can rival full-frame and for producing a long list of lenses dedicated for their APS-C line that allows for a relatively smaller but competitive set-up. The X-T3 builds on the great stills capability of the X-T2 while improving its autofocus and video capabilities significantly. The result is the best all around APS-C camera.

7. Best Full-Frame mirrorless: Sony A7III. The body starts at PHP 132,999. The A7III was game changing when it was released because it challenged what a USD 1999 camera should be. It brought Full-Frame to a more affordable price point while improving the image quality of stills and video from the previous generation. It also inherited the autofocus system from the more expensive A7RIII and is now the standard for Eye-detect/Face detect autofocus in the Full-Frame autofocus performance.
