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?

The Lens: A Practical Guide for the Creative Photographer

Which lens should I buy for my camera?
It’s such a simple question, but choosing the right lens or lenses is actually one of the most important photographic decisions you can make. Nothing affects the quality of a photo more than the lens. It’s no longer just about the megapixels-it’s the glass that makes all the difference!
Many first-time buyers of DSLRs don’t venture past the basic lens included in the box. While some are reluctant to spend more money, others are confused by all the buzzwords or are overwhelmed by all the choices out there. It’s really a shame, because interchangeable lenses give you amazing scope for quality photography.

Take in vast sweeping scenes with a wide angle lens. Capture faraway birds with a telephoto lens. Examine the tiniest detail of a flower with a macro lens. Record the perfect portrait with a prime lens. Anything is possible when you choose the right lens for the job!
This book isn’t a simple catalogue of available lenses. New products are coming out all the time, and comparing specific lenses can be difficult. Instead, author N.K. Guy gives you all the information you need to make smart buying decisions. Optical technology is demystified, arcane terminology is decoded, and practical tips are provided.
The Lens will help you build the perfect lens collection to suit your needs-now and in the future.

Meoto Iwa, the Wedded Rocks. A heavy rice straw rope links these two small near-shore rocks, representing the sacred bond of marriage. This is cool, but I have to say the woman rock is really unfairly small.Futami, Mie, Japan.

This allowed a comparatively long exposure of 20 seconds in full daylight. 50mm full frame. f/22, 20 sec. ISO 50.
