Like Many of us shooting DSLRs with either one of these brands, this seems like the time to make the leap from full frame DSLR to mirrorless full frame. This is true especially if you’re a landscape photographer and you already own a good amount of Nikon or Canon lenses. The adapters for Nikon seem to be working out fine, and I’m sure Canon’s R Mirrorless will as well.
As far as myself, being known as a fine art landscape and street photographer, full frame has always been my main requirement as far as print size options. This goes well beyond posting images for advertising and social media and allows me to shoot for large format projects.
The Canon R does have a fully articulating screen, great for Vloggers, while the Nikons have only a Flip up screen. This doesn’t allow you many options when video blogging.
This brings me to the actual need for a new mirrorless camera and all its advantages from behind the lens. I’m always talking about getting it right in camera with my clients in the field as far as composition goes.
It’s widely known to Sony users that getting it right in camera brings it to a whole new level beyond just composition. Seeing your exposures live, and making adjustments in camera before capture is truly remarkable. Not only this, but coming from a dyed in the wool DSLR user, seeing my live subject through the lens has always been important. I’m hearing the EV (Electronic Viewfinder) has been widely embraced by many newly introduced to the Nikon Z6 and Z7 as being as real as it gets and the switch from the classic prism naked eye viewing to Nikons EV is a seamless transition. I will definitely need to have one of these cameras in my hands to confirm this, but my hopes are high.
