My DSLR has begun to collect dust again
wish I had some more time and inspiration to actually use it. The Canon M3 mirrorless DSLR I bought damn near two years ago, I only used 1 time at my puppy's, puppy school graduation.
It’s just so much easier to use a phone camera these days and the drawbacks are slim to none.
Last time I bothered with my DSLR was early December. I took two shots, put it away, and used my phone instead.
Unless you want to print. For just taking snaps, I agree if you have a good phone with a lot of dynamic range they are hard to beat.
I just took a bunch of images in Tennessee on my DSLR and with 45MP I can still print large after some cropping if needed w/o issue.
I ordered a classic (10.8 x 14.4 in), large (15.6 x 20.8 in) and extra large (21.6 x 28.8 in) set of prints from fracture with images from my D750 (24MP) and at close, living room wall distances I see a lack of data on the extra large prints from the D750. If you are back 15+ feet they look fine though, but any cropping or adjustment that removes any PPI will make it worse.
Once the mirrorless market gets a lot better, as in much better than the new "pretty damned good" Sony units I will likely move over. It would be much easier for me if Nikon makes a mirrorless that will use the existing lenses. My biggest complaint on the current mirrorless is the EVF, it needs to be much, much more like looking through the lens for me to be comfortable with a camera that hits 10+ FPS.
I'm on my last bag of peas.
