    Hello people

    Here’s your long awaited part 2 of Mirror-less Interchangeable Lens Cameras.

    There may be a bit of a gap in films for a couple of weeks because I’m
    going to be running a photo workshop in Myanmar 🙂

    Speaking of workshops my very popular Lanzarote workshop is running again
    in April 2015. Please have a look at..

    I have the same black Joby strap for my Sony A6000. And I like it.

    Hi Mike Lord Kitchener. My camera needs me. Your right as usual I haven’t
    been snapping away like I should. Too busy. I know there are no excuses.
    Interesting new cameras with the morrorless design but I have sunk all my
    spare cash into my D3200 so that will have to do for now.
    Filming live on the street like this can be awkward and the visitor proves
    the point but you dealt with him well.

    Mirrorless cameras might be nearly as good as dslr’s but I find them too
    small. I even find my Canon 500D and 6D too small for my hands, I prefer my
    1D4.

    3:28 – Enter the Creeper

    Another informative video as always. They’re a bit pricey for me at the
    moment, but the prices on those things will eventually come down. It’s
    exciting to see all the new awesome technology coming out. Now if only I
    could get one of those sausages….

    Whats with the distracting on screen comments Mike ?

    After a bit of Facebook stalking, I’m confused on who Lorna Williams is? Is
    she your other Step Daughter?

    Well, THAT was close. At 4:10 in the clip, we see Mike approached by a
    zombie, which are known to possess a fascination with mirrorless cameras.
    Courteous and unflappable, Mike calmly continues his presenting while the
    zombie moves into position for a bite on the clerk’s wrist. Oddly,
    however, no carnage occurs, and the zombie shambles off after hovering
    hungrily for a few seconds. My only theory is that the smell of the bread
    (food for the living) interfered with the zombie’s olfactory system,
    momentarily short-circuiting its bloodlust. Mike, clearly aware this would
    occur, remains calm and masterfully directs the group to proceed on to the
    sausage stand. Nicely done.

    This is hilarious… I mean you guys looked clueless (at around 6:55) about
    the Auto Aperture setting on the XF56
    Having said that, with your charisma Mike, you make everything (no matter
    what) sound so fascinating! Well done Sir!

    Hi Mike. Good to see you are discovering what us Fuji X photographers have
    known for a while now. These camera’s are very capable and just great to
    use. When I traveled with my big DSLR’s, my image count would be around
    600-800 over a 2 week period. On my last trip I took only my Fuji X-Pro1
    and X100s to Paris for 1 week then London the following week. This was the
    biggest trip of my life and I trusted these 2 cameras to do the job for me.
    I came back with well over 3500 pictures. With these smaller cameras, it is
    just so easy always having 1 or both along every time you leave the hotel
    room and you just want to shoot as soon as you get out the door. These
    cameras (not just Fuji’s but any of the high quality mirrorless) are the
    perfect tool for the traveler and they won’t leave you wanting more on the
    quality side either. I could go on and on but I’ve already babbled too much
    as it is.
    Thanks for the great videos. Always looking forward to whats next.

    I have a so my A7R never changing !

    My opinion, Mike u should have started off with the Sony, it woulda been
    more familiar to u, especially when u said, uoo a PASM dial, Fuji is a
    little different when it comes to controls, but a pro like u, it shouldn’t
    take u any time to get used to the Mirrorless System, & it does do great
    stuff like uploading your pics right out on the street like u just
    experienced

    So that red haired bloke seemed annoying… Usually I’d use more colourful
    language to describe people like that 😛
    Image quality looks pretty nice! Sure they are just JPEGs straight out of
    the camera but most high end mirrorless systems have APS-C sensors and the
    Sony even has a 35mm sensor, so image quality shouldn’t be an issue anyway.
    But still, something strikes me as a little off about them… I noticed the
    way you are holding them. Your hand just barely fits on them, that would be
    too small for me.
    For me the perfect mirrorless camera would be DSLR shaped, which kind of
    defeats the purpose^^

    I have the X-E2 which is essentially the X-T1 with a slightly different
    body and an X100s. I’ve since sold all of my dslr gear and haven’t looked
    back. Fuji is awesome and is a company that actually listens to its
    customers and fans. Lugging my dslr around was a pain, but I take my fujis
    out everywhere. Image and color rendition is outstanding and images are
    clean to 3200 ISO.

    Great video!
    Rumor has it that with these new cameras you don’t need to shoot in RAW.

    great vid mike

  • By Bhodisatvas, April 24, 2015 @ 5:36 pm

    Great video, I honestly believe mirrorless is the future. I have a
    panasonic lumix GX7 and with the 12-35mm f2.8 (24-70mm equivalent) it takes
    amazing photos (and video) and fits in a small bag.
    Also well done handling the sozzled idiot with the plastic bag.

    I think, the guy with the bag… is on drugs :)

  • By TheShropshirestar, April 24, 2015 @ 8:34 pm

    Worth the wait for part 2 Mike, Mirror-less looks like the Future. Well
    Handled with the Bag Man lol

  • By Peter Skrypnyk, April 24, 2015 @ 9:21 pm

    Always enjoy your videos. This was a good, enthusiastic, basic hands on. I
    use Canon DSLRs and Olympus Pen and OM-D models. There is room for all in
    my photographic life. Open mindedness increases options. Thanks
