For Photogs: Why I made the Switch to Mirrorless Cameras!

I finally purchased a Canon mirrorless camera and it has replaced my Canon 5D Mark III as my lead camera! I did actually already own a Sony mirrorless camera for video, but wanted to stick with Canon gear for everything so I sold it and purchased the Canon EOS R. Here’s why I didn’t buy another DSLR:

  • I needed a physically small camera because a DSLR on a gimbal gets too heavy for this tiny person!
  • My DSLR upgrade option would have been the Canon 5D mark IV and after researching it and hearing feedback from others, I didn’t feel like it was worth the investment.
  • Mirrorless is where the market is going so camera companies are pouring a lot of research and development dollars into it! The focusing technology in particular is leaps and bounds beyond DSLRs.
  • I had heard great feedback about the adaptor required to use my current lenses, so I knew I wouldn’t need to upgrade all my lenses to fit the new camera body.
