I have similar feelings about mirrorless, and the concomitant shift to greater emphasis on FF compared to crop. Crop today is already way more than we need for displaying on screen, which is what we do 99% of the time. Back when digital was first coming in, my initial thought was that there should be no mirror any more, and that the mirror was just conservative carry-over from film cameras. It takes time to adapt to new technology, to fully exploit its advantages. So now we are at that point. But as you say, there are downsides, and battery use is one of those.

I don't know about the impact on the environment. How would that compare to flying or even driving to photogenic locations?

I tend to be a bit late adapting to new technology. I was a bit late getting into digital, because at the time I rationalized that film had advantages. Film resolution was just as good as digital back in 2005, and there was less risk of highlights getting clipped. If you wanted digital, just scan the film image. Best of both worlds. I was a bit late in appreciating the improvements in the new generations of lenses, rationalizing that the existing stuff must be just as good. Now we are at the beginnings of mirrorless, and it seems to me that the advantages are not significant and there are those disadvantages too. What am I overlooking?

I'm still not jumping. I will wait a year or two and see.


Well written Archi. I find myself agreeing with you on pretty much everything you mentioned. I've been saving for quite some time now, and just dropped the hammer on a new 1DXii. I honestly wanted to go with the Sony a9, but being an old man, there's just not enough time left to learn an entirely new system and become proficient at using it. The 7Dii has been a dream camera for me, and now I'll have Canon's best full frame camera to shoot along side of my 7Dii.

If I were a younger person, with better short term memory,:-( I definitely would take the leap to mirrorless. Change does come slowly, and as much as I feel that mirrorless cameras will eventually be taking over the market, I feel that our DSLR's will be around for quite some time.

I moved from the 7DII to the 1DXII and regret nothing. There just something about full frame.

Might sound stupid but since I have seen and read some documentaries about how harmful is travelling to our environment and how many attractions are destroyed due to the many tourists visiting them I started to limit myself to my living area. Anybody can make a good but boring picture of famous buildings and locations while we are overlooking the simple beauties we might have at the next corner.
With the low cost flights and cheap motels many people travel and just run through cities to be able to make and post as many selfies as possible to show off. in the old days people appreciated travelling more, they had to save money for it, they had more time to enjoy the stay because it was not important to post on social media, pictures were made to make memories.

The selfie crowd will drive you nuts at one of our national parks. Many think nothing of jumping in front of you while you try to compose a picture. I take the ones I need and then get out of the way so others can have their go at it.

Most of my pictures are taken on our property, which I have allowed to overgrow so as to create wildlife habitat. This one was taken on a gloomy morning... Common Yellowthroat aka The Masked Bandit.

Well, no selfie crowds here but I did experience it at Niagara Falls two years ago. Not something I'd want to deal with very often. I like to be surrounded by trees, not people.
