The best 8K and 6K cameras represent the next generation of video content production. Able to capture crystal-clear video in ultra-high resolutions, these are the cameras for serious filmmakers and video professionals who need all the advantages these modes bring. We"ve reviewed all the cameras on this list, and only models that have seriously impressed our team have made it onto the list.


Most of the options you"ll find on this guide are hybrid mirrorless cameras, designed to excel at both video and photography. Of course, you"ll also find some of the best cinema cameras, as well as a 360-degree camera option. We"ve kept price in mind when making our picks, so this isn"t simply a list of the top-of-the-line professional models. 8K and 6K video are more within reach of the average consumer than they ever have been – as this list demonstrates.


High-resolution video capture is a tricky beast, bringing with it issues like overheating, processing power requirements, and huge file sizes that need plenty of storage space. You may find the 6K options on this list more practical for your workflow than the 8K cameras – though we could hardly let this list go by without at least mentioning Blackmagic"s 12K magnum opus, the Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K. You can browse the quick list below for a rapid-fire overview of our picks, or read on to find out in full detail which cameras we"ve picked and why.
