DSLR cameras have been the go-to technology for high-end photography for some time now, but could the newer mirrorless cameras give them a run for their money?

    Why is a picture of a range/viewfinder camera displayed instead of an SLR?

    3 months ago i switched from my Nikon D750 to a Sony A7 II…
    I dont miss anything. At all. And i love it to be able to use old lenses from camera brands which a lot of people never heard of (like good old Contax/Yashica lenses). I dont need blazing fast AF for what im doin. With Focus peaking its a joy to use old MF lenses and some of them got character to it, which cannot be "faked" in post.
    What battery life is concerned: i rarely get in trouble with 2 batteries even for a long event. i just stick 2 batteries in my horizontal grip and im good to go. The evf enables me to see more than through my optical on the D750 (with same aperture lenses)… yes i mean the brightness. A good example: on my D750 i used a 17-35mm F4 Tokina lens and a 16-35 F4 on my A7 II. I was able to see the people in the club even at low light levels through the EVF where with the DSLR i was nearly blind and had to rely on additional light from an LED panel i carried with me. Sure the image isnt as smooth at those light levels, but it still enhances my vision.

    For me the A7 II works perfectly, for other types of photography it might not suit the needs.
    And please dont blame me for my orthography, english isnt my native language. so if you find errors: keep them and be happy 🙂

    And now you can flame me as much as you want ^^

    Lens selection is actually on the mirrorless, as they can adapt any DSLR lens.

    Today, the only thing that stops mirror-less from being totally pro is, even if they are improving, the focusing system. So no mirror-less not for sports and wildlife, but yes for everything else…..

    Not so correct talking about mirrorless cameras. Yes micro four third mirrorless lens is smaller but full frame mirrorless lens can be bigger than DSLR due with laws of physics.

    This question comes to me because of the New Samsung S7. The new phone has reduced the amount of Pixels from previous models. Yet the camera still takes awesome photos. I am like most people that thought the more pixels the better the resolution 'picture'. But now I am wondering what is a pixel and how does it effect the quality of a digital photo? and what is 'Duplicate Pixel technology?'

    if you really are nostalgic type of guy, "good ol' times", why not look at film celluloid?

    Meanwhile it only makes sense to go for a mirrorless camera, with basic functions, since they give same digital BS. Its all same!
