A year with Fuji XE2 Mirrorless.. do i miss the DSLR? |
Cameron Mead

In the weekend while out and about  we walked into a camera shop and they had to my suprise..the brand new Canon 7dmk2 DSLR! Its been 12 months since I’ve held a DSLR.  To be honest i was actually reasonably happy to be reunited with this functional photography tool, almost like a spark re-ignited perhaps like bumping into an old friend. Not the annoying ones you keep seeing posting crap on facebook but ones that bring back a flood of memories from your high school years. Just hearing that mirror slap, seeing your subject optically and the ultimate response to fire off shots or 10 fps if you wish is something i had forgotten about. It hits you emotionally especially after 6 years of shooting the trusty steed that was the DSLR. Some often say you don’t know what you had till its gone.. Thankfully Canon & Nikon are still pushing forward with DSLR for the masses and good on them, its still a fantastic tool. I described it to my friend as like cutting down a tree, one chainsaw does it with no hassle(DSLR), but the other one (Mirrorless) you just love using a bit more even if it takes more time & effort to cut through.. Obviously there are going to be times when you need to make money & chop as many trees down in a day as you can. For now we are still just an amateur/hobbyist who has big dreams of travel & new levels of photography. So where is this going? am i starting to miss the trusty DSLR? perhaps………
