Thinking of Switching to Mirrorless? Just Do It!

This post is aimed at those who want to go mirrorless but can’t get past the fear. Mirrorless cameras are – cameras! You’ve got the skills and knowledge, and together with your DSLR you’re making fantastic images. So, pick up a mirrorless camera, apply your skills and shoot. Once you see the quality of the images, all the while remembering the light weight and small size that make it fun, you’ll want more. And then you can dig into the feature rich world that is Mirrorless. Do remember to push the red button too!

About the Author:

After 20+ years in a computer tech job, Carol Schlintz is enjoying a second and more fulfilling career as a portrait and sports photographer in suburban Milwaukee. Like many of us, she has met with some personal challenges and is in need of reducing the physical strain from carrying heavy pro cameras and lenses around. Not one to take "no" for an answer, she jumped in with both feet and no safety net. As of April 2012 Carol has retired her big DSLR's and picked up a couple of small, light mirrorless cameras and is now using them on every shoot. Vlogging here on discovermirrorless, as well as sharing and swapping ideas with the other Hybrid Heroes (and the viewers!) is part of her process of evolving from a still photo only photographer into a photo+video+audio hybrid image maker. Count on Carol to share what works, what doesn't, and all the steps in becoming Milwaukees first hybrid photography studio that specializes in making and selling eProducts.

    Hi Carol,
    I watch all the developments with interest from over here in the UK, this fascinates me. I just sold my Canon 5d mk2 and my beloved lenses ( including the 70-200mm bazooka!) and bought a Sony Nex-7, I bought a couple of a-mount F2.8 wide and portrait lenses (and Sony LA-EA2 adapter)and I don’t regret it one single bit.
    I find that I am able to get more candid shots due to less bulk, in the past I brought out the bazooka and I found that it intimidated some people.
    I am new to video, Mr Crockett has given me some pointers regarding lighting, but I am relishing the possibilities of the Mirrorless system.

    Keep up the good work!

    Fifty something and still learning something new everyday!
    Sincerely,
    Steve,
    Lancashire, UK.
