LA based Pro Photographer Steven Lynch (who has just joined the team of “Hybrid Heroes” on DiscoverMirrorless.com) has decided to leave his Canon 60d and T2i in Favor of a micro 4/3 camera system.
Although Steven may be part of the first wave of Photo and Video Pros who have recognized the advantages of today’s mirrorless systems and have decided to travel small but shoot big, we believe he will soon be joined by many more. 2012 was a year in which we saw many advancements in mirrorless sensor technology and significant camera releases, including the Olympus OM-D E-M5, and Fuji X-Series Cameras, the Sony NEX Line and the Panasonic Lumix G5 and GH3, as well as professional grade lenses to go long with them. These advancements combined with the proliferation of “smart” devices (smart phones and tablets) has smarter photographers predicting the advent of Hybrid Photography in 2013. In other words, a movement away from traditional printed photos and towards “Hybrid eProducts” (Click Here for an Example) – a combination of photos, video, graphics and audio that can be shared and played on these smart devices.
You’ve probably seen Steven a lot in the comments section here on MC, and we’re looking forward to watching his chronicles as he documents his experiences on the migration to mirrorless cameras. (Read article on DiscoverMirrorless.com – You can also check out Steven’ website at PhotoLynch.com)
By the way… Steven’s camera of choice as he starts down the mirrorless trail is the Panasonic Lumix G5. I’m also shooting with a G5 at present and am looking forward to seeing Steven’s perspective on the camera as he incorporates it into his photography business.
