Going Mirrorless

Going Mirrorless 

When it comes to camera questions that we field here in the office, the one that we often hear is “Have you gone mirrorless?” Well, yes and no, because we still rely on our Nikon SLRs for most of our work but for the past three months we have been shooting both a Nikon Z6 and the higher megapixel Z7. The main difference between a mirrorless camera 1595 Z6 other1and a SLR is that the light goes directly to the image sensor on the mirrorless which has an electronic view finder, whereas with an SLR the light is bounced off a reflex mirror up to the optical view finder. Mirrorless cameras are smaller, lighter, and from our limited experience, shoot unbelievable video. It’s the video aspect that captured our attention and rightfully so.
Being able to shoot slo mo (slow motion) at 120 frames per second is so cool and the fact that with the Z series adaptor we can use all of our go to lenses makes it a no brainer. The stills that come out of the larger megapixel Z7 are as good or in some cases better than our Nikon D850. So, in short we are optimistic that the Z Nikons will always be a major player in our day to day photography.
Another question that often pops up is, “What camera bag do you use?” The perfect bag for every job just doesn’t exist, but for probably ten years we’ve used Think Tank. We’ve tried many brands of bags but have to say that the design team at Think Tank have to be serious photographers. We find the bags well designed and extremely well made. They take a real 1591 Z7 lcdbeating. If you’re looking for a camera bag, we would suggest visiting Roberts Camera. Located in Indianapolis, It’s where we buy all of our camera gear. Our contact at Roberts is Jody Grober, and as well as being a great photographer, is also a passionate fly fisherman. Contact him at This email address is being protected from spambots.
