Using an electronic view finder or the LCD in studio almost feels silly but that’s merely a reflection of what I’m used to.
As usual, having the exposure level showing in real time is amazing (and easy to turn off when in manual).
The broader depth of field is now an advantage since less light power is required to use small apertures. Get closer to your subject or use longer focal lengths…
When I started this exercise, I intended to compare a lot more images and lenses.
If you need a broad depth of field and things more in focus, cropped sensors are a big benefit.
I wouldn’t often use a 35mm equivalent focal length for a studio portrait but it’s a great lens to include more context in an image (as you can see by the various clutter).
A lot of people (as in photographers that I know) have been talking about replacing or augmenting their current DSLR systems with mirrorless systems.
The benefits are hard to ignore (See: Comparing the Fuji X-E2 and the Canon 5D Mark III) as mirrorless systems are less expensive and lighter and smaller.
Since I am WAY more used to using DSLRs in a studio environment, I find them easier to use and more intuitive.So one is almost twice the price and the other is more than twice the price.There are a handful of native lenses available but nothing that I’m personally interested in because of the size and cost (example: the FE 28-70mm FF3.5-5.6 is 00).Switching between the 2 systems while trying to shoot similar scenes is very confusing so not something that I plan to do in the future.That said, I know that a mirrorless camera is every bit as capable in the studio with minor limitations.
This means that the smaller the sensor, the broader the depth of field at a given aperture.
