The Advantages Of BOTH DSLR And Mirrorless Cameras
This debate keeps raging on! I hear it all the time. Which is better? A DSLR or Mirrorless? Which one takes better images? Which one has better lenses? Which one helps your workflow?
Before you start looking at disadvantages. It’s important to look at the similarities…
The following is a list of features that both DSLR and MIRRORLESS systems do well…
- They BOTH both offer interchangeable lens setups. A lens can easily be replaced with another.
- They BOTH allow for add-ons like flashes, filters, microphones and MORE!
- They BOTH are available with full-frame (larger) or crop frame (smaller) sensor sizes.
- They BOTH can shoot RAW images. This is important when it comes time to edit photos.
Which System Takes Better Photos?
The answer is none of the above! I don’t know who said it first, but there is an old saying in photography…
“The best camera is the one that you have with you”.
Whether you take photos with a DSLR, smartphone, mirrorless, or point & shoot camera, always remember that YOU are taking the photos, NOT your camera!
