Mirrorless part 4 – the try out – Sony a6300

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”

Going mirrorless? part 3

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”

Mirrorless or not? Part 2

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.

  1. Try mirrorless in the real world and see if it makes the difference I am expecting.
  2. 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.

I’m thinking of going ‘mirrorless’

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’”

Daily Photo Challenge #9 – Warmth

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).
