Summer is coming. If you have the possibility to travel during your holiday, you probably want to save the best moments with photos. Working in fashion, I often use to travel and attend events, so I need a good camera.
I wanted to buy something that was good enough, small and relatively cheap at the same time. I finally discovered that there were different compact system cameras suitable for me.
I want to say that this is not a technical guide and I am not a professional photographer, I love photography and I want to share with you the reason I have chosen a mirrorless camera.
WHAT IS A MIRRORLESS?
Well, they are compact cameras that are quite small and light, but they offer advanced controls, good quality of images and the possibility to use interchangeable lenses.
They offer some features (like zoom lens) that are available on reflex camera and let you take better photos. At the same time, they often include solutions for people that are not professional photographers.
WHY A MIRRORLESS CAMERA?
The main reason because I finally bought a mirrorless camera is that I needed a camera that guaranteed me a photo quality better than a smartphone, but I had a limited budget and I didn’t want to buy a camera that was too big. When I bought it, I had never used a similar product before but I have learned to use it very quickly. (You can find a lot of tutorials and guide online on how to use a mirrorless or reflex camera and how to shoot better photos)
WHICH CAMERA I HAVE CHOSEN?
The mirrorless that I bought is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7, a stylish and light 16 Megapixels camera with a 180º rotatable LCD display that let you make incredible selfies too.
It also has a built-in WiFi that let you connect the camera with your smartphone and immediately share the photos you take on your favourite app and social networks.
One of the best features is the “Jump Snap” function that allows you to take the perfect photo while jumping, using your smartphone as remote control for the camera. You can hold your smartphone in your hand or put it in your pocket, the camera will detect the highest point of your jump and it will capture a photo at that point.
It’s also compatible with different type of lens and filters.
