The mirrorless digital cameras offer better image quality and an enhanced workflow. One advantage of mirrorless is that you control not only the camera itself, a huge advantage when it comes to creating high resolution footage. You can always add more lenses, for example to reduce the distortion or exposure problem.
Of course, mirrorless cameras also contain certain disadvantages; for example, they are much more expensive to use. You can also find a lot of accessories to help you in the setup, and in particular it is very important that you get a good camera-holder. This is even more important for portrait shoots.
What are the best mirrorless cameras to use to make great digital portraits?
It is a tricky question, in terms of pros and cons.
For example, when it comes to the pros, the Canon EOS Rebel T6 is an excellent choice for creating high quality content with a lot of detail.
Also, if you want to create digital portraits in a very professional way, you should look at a Sony CCD camera – such as the Sony Alpha a7R II.
Also, one of the most powerful mirrorless cameras, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, offers a very high quality, professional workflow. The image quality is very high, and the RAW photos are actually easier to manipulate after you make some adjustments.
And on the other hand, there is also the problem of image resolution… if the camera has a lot of low resolution photos, it will be hard for you to do any significant processing. In this case, the digital workflow is always better when it comes to DSLR.
Do you prefer the mirrorless to the DSLR workflow? If so, what should you be choosing?
The main advantage of the mirrorless workflow is that you can easily take shots with a small number of lenses and add extra lenses later for even better results.
For example, this way you can make portraits with a wide angle lens with ease, and still leave the rest to your camera. This gives your portraits an impressive depth which is not possible with a DSLR.
On the other hand, DSLR users have to shoot with a wide angle lens on a tripod at a high ISO for weeks at a time, to get decent photos as your camera is constantly recording. And, of course, this is usually much more work because you have to switch cameras.
Of course, it is not hard to see why
