Full-frame mirrorless vs. full-frame DSLR: what’s best?


Full-frame mirrorless vs. full-frame DSLR: what’s best?
Which is better, a traditional full-frame DSLR or the new mirrorless full-frame Canon EOS R System? We asked leading extreme sports photographer and Canon Ambassador Richard Walch for his Canon full-frame comparison.

Richard Walch is one of the world’s most experienced action photographers. He has been using Canon cameras professionally for more than 25 years. Best known for his snow sports and sailing images, Richard works in the most extreme environments on fast-moving shoots where failing to get the shot is not an option. That’s why he chooses the right camera for each job.

“Before I go on each job, I work out which is the perfect camera system for me to take,” he explains. “For full-frame DSLR, Canon has a huge range of bodies and lenses to choose from. I love the rugged quality and the great battery life.”
But Richard is at the top of his game because he is always looking for the edge to take his images to the next level. And right now, for some assignments, that edge is the new technology in the Canon EOS R System and its groundbreaking RF lenses.

“I depend on technology – I see it as supporting what I’m trying to do with my images. The Canon EOS R has definitely earned a place in my bag and is exciting to work with,” Richard says. “Once you get past just checking the spec sheets and start to use the camera, you realise it has features that can move your creativity forward.”

“For me the best images are spontaneous, and the EOS R gives you stunning full-frame quality in a package that’s super portable. But you can’t forget Canon has worked on the EOS DSLR range for 30 years. They are super reliable and built tough. So now I have a choice.”

So how does he choose? What’s the difference between full-frame DSLRs and the mirrorless full-frame EOS R System? From his expert perspective, what benefits does each offer, and when would he use one rather than the other?
