Just a few days until Desert Trip where I’ll be seeing some of the biggest names in rock, see my previous post here. Continue reading “Mirrorless: Part 5½, the countdown to Desert Trip and Pen-F try out”
So I spent last week with a Sony a6300 with a 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 lens rented from Borrowlenses.com which I took on holiday to Florida. Continue reading “Mirrorless part 4 – the try out – Sony a6300”
Just putting down my thoughts on the two cameras I have in mind for going mirrorless should I decide to make the switch (apologies if I have said any of this before).
As mentioned previously the SLR has been giving me pain and I am thinking that technology is at the level where the difference between SLR vs Mirrorless (for my needs) is close enough.
So I have in mind two camera options having looked around; Sony a6300 and Olympus Pen-F digital. Continue reading “Going mirrorless? part 3”
I thought I would follow up on this subject and probably try to document this further over the next few weeks.
Following the last post on this I have been continuing my investigations whilst my SLR is in for repair.
I have fairly well convinced myself at this point that I do want to move to a smaller camera but not ready to make the decision yet. To help me on the way I am renting a Sony a6300 from BorrowLenses.com for my vacation starting this weekend. Hopefully this will give me what I need to make a decision of some sort.
There are two things i want to get out of it.
- Try mirrorless in the real world and see if it makes the difference I am expecting.
- Try out the one of the two cameras I have in mind and check operability.
The two cameras I am considering at the moment are the Sony a6300 and the Olympus Pen-F digital. Both fit with my needs in terms of features so it comes down to usability and livability. The Olympus is more expensive but look beautiful the Sony more affordable ;it’s not beautiful but is well designed and I like the look of it.
A week with the Sony will give me a good idea of what it is like to use and if it is good I will probably go with it leaving extra cash for lenses and accessories.
Is it time for me to switch? I’ve been casually thinking about the idea for a while and now I am looking at specific cameras. Continue reading “I’m thinking of going ‘mirrorless’”
Had to switch to my Sony DSC-QX10 for today as I needed to be portable. Here are a few snaps from my lunchtime walk out (I do love this little camera).
