A Year After Switching To Mirrorless

With shaking hands and a head full of second guessing, photographer Adam Welch cast his Canon DSLR aside in favor of a Sony α7R. That was a year ago. Today the second guesses are gone as he explains in an article on Contrastly.com

"When I went hunting for a new camera system I was searching for a powerhouse of resolution that would be capable of delivering world-class image quality while enduring some of the harshest physical conditions encounterable by man and not require a haul team of pack mules to move around.

"Did I find this unicorn of cameras? Well, actually I did. The Sony α7R continues to meet every single requirement I have for the nature of my work.

And that’s what you have to ask yourself when looking for any camera or any other piece of photo gear that will meet with serious use." Adam Welch
