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?

Find The Perfect Camera

What type of Camera Should i Get?

Here are some quick information about cameras you might be interested in:

DSLR : Digital single-lens reflex cameras are powerful digital cameras with a extensive adjustments for professional or photography enthusiasts. It combines the parts of a single-lens reflex camera (SLR) and a digital camera back, which replaces the photographic film. Features like live preview, HD videorecording with contrast detection autofocus or ergonomic integration like dedicated film speed (ISO) buttons took further advantage of the digital image sensor.

The Mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera (MILC) is rather new and it is a very popular class of digital system cameras. Unlike a compact digital camera, a MILC is equipped with an interchangeable lens mount and unlike a DSLR, a MILC does not have a mirror-based optical viewfinder. This is for those who want more control over their photographs and still have a compact size camera.

A point-and-shoot camera, also called a compact digital camera, is made for those who wants to take images without all the manual adjustment. Most compact digital cameras use focus free lenses or autofocus for focusing, automatic systems for setting the exposure options, and have flash units built in. This camera is very easy to use and great for first time camera user, beginners and daily use.
