Nowadays people are confused about one thing when they thinking about to buy a new camera. Is DSLR camera is better over Mirrorless or not!
Well in this article i’m going to explain whether you should get a mirrorless camera or a DSLR. And which one is good for videography and vlogging. Also going to clear up some myths about mirrorless cameras.
How Does A DSLR Works?
SLR is stand for single lens reflex, back in the film days it was SLR when you come out with digital cameras you put a D in front of it you get digital SLR. Now what’s going on inside of that cameras that you have a mirror box, you have a pentaprism which is how you get your optical viewfinder when you take a picture the mirror flips out of the way blocking the viewfinder letting light go through and exposing the sensor or the film and that is how an SLR works.
There is no mirror in mirrorless camera, thats why they call it mirrorless camera.
Probably you already have a mirrorless camera in your pocket or on your desk or somewhere right now!
Maybe you’re even holding it because you’re using a cell phone. Every cell phone camera is a mirrorless camera. Now you have cameras that act similarly to DSLRs except they don’t have mirrors in them they started to change the technologies and evolved how photography is being done today.
Sony, Nikon, Canon, Fuji, Olympus I think most of them there are a lot of different cameras out there that have moved into the mirrorless world and now more than ever before the lines are starting to blur between DSLRs and mirrorless cameras.
Differences between a mirrorless and a DSLR
DSLRs tend to be larger thicker and heavier, they take up more space because they have to have that mirror box and the pentaprism inside.
On the other side, mirrorless cameras tend to be thinner smaller and lighter. Mirrorless camera has more updated technology than the DSLR. In the same budget range, you’ll have a lot more focus points in mirrorless one.
One feature that I like in mirrorless camera is silent shooting. That means you can take pictures without any shutter sounds, like smartphones. As the mirrorless camera doesn’t have any shutter so it can provide shutter sound free shooting feature. Maybe you’ll need this feature in some situation. But using DSLR there is no way to take pictures silently without that shutter sound.
And one thing that I don’t like about the mirrorless camera is it has less battery life than DSLR. Even though if u take some extra battery with you, this is not a problem. But sometimes you may need longer single battery life, especially while recording video.
