For the last few years we’ve been getting more and more of you asking about mirrorless and why you would want to invest in a mirrorless camera, whether the new mirrorless will deliver the performance of a full-frame DSLR like the Sony RX100 and Panasonic GH5, or if you need a more high-resolution (8-bit) capture with a more sophisticated editing system.
This video from our friend and contributor, John G. Smith, who takes you step by step through the basics and gives you some great tips on camera choice.
What kind of mirrorless will I get?
We’ve all heard the advice: buy an existing lens. That’s definitely still a great suggestion, and that’s exactly what we’re advocating. If you already own an existing lens, then it’s great to just buy a new mirrorless camera in place of yours or purchase the lenses that have recently been discontinued. In the end you may be surprised by what you need, though, so try to do your due diligence.
Can’t I just add a lens?
Well, this is why you need to research mirrorless lens options and take your equipment back to the shop to get all the lenses you want. If you’re in the market for an inexpensive camera with a little bit of an edge, and you like buying off the rack (rather than looking at online retailers) then a good place to start is LensRentals.com
Also, because there’s a greater need for the smaller lens models, LensRentals has expanded the lens rental business to include the LensRentals Cine Lens Service as well. This special line of lenses comes with one full-size, 1.6x digital zoom and a choice of either 14mm or 75/2.8 and 14mm+50mm filters.
This is just one of many things to keep in mind with regards to choosing a mirrorless camera that’s smaller with lots of options and options of lenses. If you’re going to buy the smallest, flashiest mirrorless camera yet, make sure to be sure that whatever you do will do the job.
Are there any camera or lens upgrades that you can make?
Yes, it’s possible to upgrade your existing camera with either a newer version of an existing lens that you want to add or a completely new lens that you want (or both) . There are many examples on CameraIQ where people have put together videos that can show you
