08 Apr Who Needs Mirrors?
The question of “who needs mirrors” (i.e. mirrorless camera) is one I’m hoping that I can answer in the coming months (or at least form an opinion on).
I’m hoping to take possession of on my new Sony A7III next week, where I will spend the next couple months putting it to the test. I will be comparing it not only to itself, but also to the my Canon DSLRs as well. And also hoping to borrow the flagship Sony A9 to do some more comparisons.
In the past I have shied away from Mirrorless Cameras because the electronic viewfinder made me feel seasick, and the reviews were just never that good that it made sense for me to own one (compared to my DSLRs). But with Sony’s latest cameras and with rumours of Canon and Nikon coming out with their own full-frame mirrorless cameras, it seems like the have taken a bit of a leap. While trying them in the store the Electronic Viewfinder seemed to be way less nauseating than before, and the AF was really quite something.
I’m excited to try out my new camera when it gets here, and start reporting on my results. I’m going into it will a completely open mind, and maybe my mind just might be blown.
Stay tuned to my blog for my thoughts as I put the camera to the test, and also feel free to contact me if you have any specific questions that you would like answered.
