The One About Sony Vs Canon

Podcast cover
Read more
not officially part of "the epic podcast," but a podcast nonetheless.

ryan brenizer and i sat down for an hour and a half battle royal of canon vs sony.

show notes:

ryan picked up the new canon eos - R

sam recently picked up the canon eos RP

sam and ryan’s background in camera brands/preferences/styles

the ethical dilemma of reviewing equipment

why we have an affinity for miriness cameras instead of SLR

why weddings are the perfect stress test for new bodies, but also the riskiest.

using mirrorless cameras during wedding receptions when you can’t see with your human eye

the limiting factor is the human eye

canon vs sony - the issue of banding

the less you feel like you’re intruding the more you feel like you’re giving to your clients

to shoot in silence or not to shoot in silence

sony vs canon sound of the mechanical shutter

the influence of videography on still cameras

sony vs canon - the feel in your hand

the failure of touch bars

sony vs canon - eye focus

DUAL CARD SLOTS VS SINGLE CARD SLOT

lenses will never be cheaper

sony vs canon - flashes
