For some reason I like dslr than mirrorles...
Kiwiboii Supertramp (10 days ago)
The reason that they have shirter battery life is their higher energy consumption as well. It's not only because you make them smaller.

I like sonys mirrorless but i prefer a canon dslr. Its mainly due to the weight balance of a dslr. When i used my canon 24-105mm there was alot of stress on my wrist when i used a mirrorless. Aka the eos R🤮 im waiting fkr the m50 predessor hoping they remove crop
Sachin Manick (23 days ago)
Guys I too vote for dslr.. because I’m owning it, but now generally could anyone tell that which is best to buy canon 5dm4 or Sony a7rm3 ??
mithun malakar (23 days ago)
Mirrorless will be the future but future is little far because of the high price. may be after 4-5 years down the line we will see some good stuff with budget price tags.

Mirrorless is good for people who causally take photos. But if you want to be a professional, its better to have a DSLR because it doesn't 17 truck loads of batteries to get like 5 images and you don't have to turn on the camera just to frame a shot. Lens changing is a safer process in DSLR because your image sensor is less exposed to non sense flying in the air as compared to a mirrorless.

As for whether a bigger camera is a better camera, the best camera for you is the one you have. You're not a professional. Enjoy taking your photos and don't fucking worry about waving your penis.

This guy has a real problem with that sweaty upper lip, all glistening beneath his nose. He really should grow a mustache to hide it if he's going to continue his life as a Sony salesman. It's off-putting - even a little sickening.

And when you hang a 400 2.8 on the Sony body, there goes the lightweight advantage, just an awkward little body to hang on to. Sorry, you haven't sold it.

A canon camera on a Sony channel? huh? I like my mirrorless though :) I have the 5100 & Nex 5N. I removed the UVIR filter from the sensor from my 5N (that was quite the operation...) so it's a full-spectrum camera now (and everything is still working great, no AF issues)

first skip the intro bullshit if you came here for the title says. You can start at 0:47 seconds. Then after a while one finds out that this is more an add for sony then really being honest about the pros en cons and differences. Total waist of time this video.
Key things to note: Title - "Understanding DSLR vs. Mirrorless Cameras". Literally the main focus of the video was how Sony's mirrorless cameras were in some way "superior" than other DSLR camera's. Point #1 - Sony's A7 packs one of the best full frame sensors in an interchangeable lens? Um... exactly how? Any company can say that they have the best of whatever, but when they don't back up their statement why it's the best, really seems more like they're just putting together an ad that would last 30 seconds on TV saying "here's why you should get this camera. Unlike other brands, this is way better!" Point #2 - Mirrorless cameras deliver less battery life. Yeah, it's not as big as an entry level DSLR, but there's no excuse to say that's the main reason why. There are a bunch of smartphones out there that are extremely thin. Not only that, but they're capable of running multiple apps, while leaving them running in the background, using the web, either with safari or chrome (also running with multiple tabs open), and a bunch of other things. I use a Moto Z2 Play, and it's literally the thinnest phone I've seen in my life. No joke, the protective case I put on it is thinner than the iPhone 4S. For this reason, size should not matter, whatsoever. Really, the main battery killer is that EVF you have in the camera. If your camera is using a viewfinder that is constantly trying to assist you in aiming the camera at your subject, it's constantly using more battery power in order to keep up. Point #3 - Mirrorless cameras autofocus is inferior. Yes it's debatable, but this is just pretty much a loop back to the title of why Sony's camera's were "superior" than other DSLR's. Point #4 - Mirrorless camera's don't have great lenses, but you're using other lenses from other companies using an adapter? You're saying it's not true that mirrorless cameras have bad lenses but you state that we have adapters for other lenses when it comes to other big camera companies. You didn't seem to realize that you shot yourself in the foot there, since you're too busy boasting about the A7. Point #5 - A bigger camera is a better camer- What?! Why is this even a point? Yeah, bigger cameras can hold bigger sensors and all, but overall, if you're just getting started in photography, a smartphone can deliver some great results if you don't want to spend a lot of money just yet. It definitely won't be as great as most cameras out there, but for practice, if you have the right techniques, the results can be surprising. The last thing to note: This guy is giving us a BIASED opinion why the Sony A7 is a better option than most DSLR's. Of coarse he's doing it, that's why this video is on Sony's channel. At the beginning of the video and in the description of the video, he stated that this information can help you determine whether DSLR or mirrorless cameras are better. And what does he end up doing? He ends up by giving us a 5 minute long ad for the Sony A7. It honestly is hard to find an UNBIASED opinion for anything on the internet anymore... P.S... Kudos to you for reading through the entire comment...

$50 for a battery....for the capacity of a AA battery. the only negative of using a small mirrorless for a wedding is the ergonomic especially when you're using canon L lens. ..even though its lighter it feels heaver because the balance is off and the grip is smaller.
Russell S (2 months ago)
The second you put a lens on that mirrorless camera, you lose every bit of size advantage. Mirrorless cameras actually take up far more room than SLR/DSLR once you account for the lenses, as additional void space needs to be added to every mirrorless specific lens to allow proper focusing. If you're buying a mirrorless camera because "it's smaller", you're an idiot.
