Re: Mirrorless Digital cameras

I would suggest say the Nikon and Canon camera groups of Facebook, the people there know there stuff.


I have a Nikon D5600 (not mirror-less)

Changeable lenses? Rechargeable? Autofocus?

Canon EOS R3 Mirrorless Digital Camera with RF 24-105mm f/4L IS Lens + EF-EOS R mount adapter - 6,090.00

Re: Mirrorless Digital cameras

A very popular and mirrorless currently is the Sony a7 iii

I've not yet made the jump to mirrorless, and as with Hom3r am still using a DSLR (Canon). The clunk of the mirror moving is still very satisfying and after a large investment over the years in Canon's USM lenses and other equipment it's going to be hard to move away from EOS, but I do want to make the move after 15 years of using them. The Sony seems like a really good choice.

Take a look at Flickr's Camera Finder for some examples of images

Re: Mirrorless Digital cameras

I am looking to replace my 40D but I think it's my main lens that is faulty so that also needs replacing. I still would favour DSLR so a 90D is my first choice but no fixed on Canon. I do prefer the optical viewfinder though and I like something a bit bigger to fit my mitts.


Hasselblad is nice but I need to replace my wife's car before I consider one of those.

Re: Mirrorless Digital cameras

I would get one that would give the best depth of field or some people call it micro-contrast images.

Re: Mirrorless Digital cameras

I would add that it depends a lot on the type of photography you want to do. For example, taking photos of jewelry would require a macro lens and viewfinder. Sports would require a camera like the Nikon D4s or D5 that can take many fast high quality images in a short time. I'm not sure how a mirrorless camera would perform for these tasks.

Re: Mirrorless Digital cameras

I've been advised if doing anything fast moving i.e. sport or vehicles/planes then don't both its no good as they are not as responsive unless anyone knows different.
