Dec 09 – Mirrorless Cameras: Fad or Fab
December 9, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Mirrorless cameras appear to be taking the digital camera world by storm. The question is are they simply a fad or are they really a fabulous game changer?
Photography life is skeptical. “It is hard to visit any photography website without noticing extensive fanfare being paid to the mirrorless camera niche. Some tout it as the savior of the mid-to-high end camera market. Others have dubbed it the “DSLR killer.” A number of prominent photographers have created videos and articles articulating how mirrorless innovations caused them to shed pounds from their bag and reintroduce them to the joy of photography. And why shouldn’t they? The market for traditional point-and-shoot cameras is in a free fall as smartphones increase in usage, quality, and capabilities. Traditional DSLR sales continue to fall as well. The industry certainly needs something to cheer about. And of course, photography websites need something to write about.”
So what do you think? And what is your experience with mirrorless image creators? Come and hear the experiences of four KPAC member photographers who will speak to Fuji, Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras, lenses and other related equipment.
