"CHG_CANON

Only you can decide if you're letting a mirror hold you back from the photographer you were meant to be."

CHG_CANON has written many times how much changing to mirrorless would change my life as well as my photography. So yesterday my Nikon Zfc arrived. I got up this morning, looked into the mirror, but it was the same old me. I took a picture but I couldn't see any difference in the quality or composition. No epiphany. What did I do wrong? :)

Victim of the camera-sellers' hype. Was the shot quieter??

Go out and do some photography and see if it is better or easier. Maybe it will be easier to take astounding photos?

Not this tired topic again. The question is settled, and I don't feel like arguing the point again. Switching to Sony mirrorless three years ago was a game changer for me. If it isn't for you, that is fine. If you don't want to switch that is fine also.

The advantage of a mirrorless camera is that we do not see ourselves when looking at the DSLR mirror when the lens is off it. Oh, the horror..!

You forgot to take all the mirrors down in your house. Then you'll truly be mirrorless.

My reply was offered "tongue in cheek" as CHG_CANON's comments sometimes are. And to CHG_CANON I hasten to add that I often learn a lot from your "straight" answers and comments; but I also recognize the irony when it's present.

That's fine. It still is annoying click bait.

There used to be few coaches in the NFL...Tom Landry, Bud Grant, Hank Stram, and a couple of others, of whom it was commonly said that "they could take their team and beat your team, but they could then take your team and beat their team." They were just that good as coaches. I would hope that as photographers we are working to be that way as photographers.

Show us a picture of your Zfc. Which lens did you get?

The Zfc was an exception. It's the mirrorless that is an SLR wanna be. You have to get a Sony like CHG_CANON.

Right there at the beginning, with β€œI got up this morning”.

Acoarst thaz just the root of the problem.

Then you aggravated things by looking in the mirror, and yet further by composing such a tiresome title for this thread.

Natcherly everything can only go steeply down hill from there. This thread is never going to become even mildly entertaining.
