[Video Review] Sony a7III after 10 months

Sony a7III longterm review

It’s been 10 months now since I made the switch from a DSLR to a Sony mirrorless camera. In that time, I’ve shot about 20 weddings all over the world… traveling carry-on-only every time :-)

So here’s the big question: after 10 months with the Sony a7III, do I regret my decision to leave my trusty Nikon D750?

Or moreover, do I miss shooting with a DSLR since switching to mirrorless?

I put together this video in an attempt to help anyone who’s in the same position that I was in at the beginning of 2018 – should you switch to mirrorless?

Right up until the end of my experiences with DSLRs, I was happy with my Nikon D750. 4 years on, there’s no doubt that the D750 is still a great camera (see the review here), and now it’s available for an absolute steal of a price (see here).

However, there’s no denying the fact that the technology in all DSLR cameras is a little, well, dated. As much as I love using DSLRs, I found myself wanting to take advantage of the technical advancements of the latest mirrorless cameras.

In particular, I wanted an EVF and a ‘proper’ Live View. Being able to see exposure adjustments in real time is a much more efficient way to take photos, and using a DSLR in Live View is a clunky and frustrating experience – especially so on non-flagship DSLRs such as the D750.

So, the question remains: after 10 months shooting solely with the Sony a7III both for professional and personal work, will I be staying with Sony?

Or will I switch to the Nikon Z or Canon R mirrorless camera systems in 2022?
