The big camera dilemma DSLR, Mirrorless, or both.
Hi, I am at this point in life when I need a new camera. Recently, I started getting more serious about my career in videography and photography. However, I am also a student - so my budget is quite tight. At the moment I am using a 650D for my projects, but I feel the serious need for something better. My work (besides shorts and personal projects) mainly consists of promotional videos, live event videos, interviews, etc. I do nightclub and event photography as well. Most of these of course just for the money - prefer it to working in McDonalds. So, what I need is something more versatile - for photo and for video. I came up with three main options:
- One of them is buying a 6D now - because it would be easier for it to pay back - with photography work and videography trying to avoid moirè. Later adding a GH4 in a few months. The GH4 I'd use only for video and keep the canon for photo work.
- The other option - buying a 5D mark III now. Later maybe gh5 or whatever better comes up next year. Financing the 5dmkiii will be a struggle so I doubt I will be able to afford anything else in the next few months.
- Third option - mirrorless only? I read loads of reviews, saw a lot of sample footage, etc. A lot of people throwing away dslr and loving mirrorless. That's cool, but I seriously doubt only with a mirrorless camera I'd be able to achieve the same results in photography. I might be wrong - but I hope you could prove it to me with some sample images.
I have quite a few lenses and a flashgun, of course, for Canon.
I'd be happy to hear different opinions with some supportive images :)
