My journey in photography started with a Nikon camera a few years ago! I went to Mail Champlain in Brossard and was going for a Canon Rebel. I was young, I liked the name! But after trying it out, there was something about the ERGONOMICS (for me!) that didn't work. (PS: Ergonomics is massively important to me.... more than any review on DPReview..) The unsexilly named Nikon F60 on the other hand, fitted perfectly! and so from 1998 till 2016 I was exclusively a Nikon photographer.
Then, for all sorts of reasons, I started looking elsewhere. A lot of professionals started raving about the Fuji and so did I! I used to LOVE fujifilm when I was shooting film. So I went to The Photography Show (where you can find me this year on stand H4 with my friends from Zenfolio) and tried the Fuji cameras.
Now. My wife being the amazing person she is stood there for about 2 hours (7 months pregnant!) while I was holding this camera I really wanted... but didn't feel I could use professionally because the ergonomics didn't work FOR ME. Ergonomics is a very personal thing.. So I was gutted and went on my way.
The reason I found Fuji so interesting was because it was smaller and lighter than my DSLR because it's a mirrorless camera and believe me, small is good when you carry your gear for 30 hours on a weekend! Then I discovered with the cameras for me: the Olympus Em-1 and the Sony A9!
Switching for me was a big thing because:
Guess what? I am SO HAPPY I switched!
I'm not going to bore you with lot's of technical stuff but here's the crux of why I like my Sony and Olympus cameras so much:
So here are a few random images we took with the A9 last year! Hope you like! Make sure you comment or feel free to ask ANY questions you might have about switching from DSLRs to mirrorless cameras!
