If you’re used to shooting on a Canon or Nikon DSLR and haven’t tried out a late-model mirrorless camera, you might be wondering what it’s like to shoot with an electronic viewfinder (EVF). This great video shows you the experience of shooting with a Sony a7 III’s viewfinder.
Coming to you from Manny Ortiz, this fun video follows him on a portrait photoshoot and shows you what he sees through his viewfinder. I recently made the switch from Canon to a Sony a7R III myself, and one of the greatest joys of the EVF is always seeing the true exposure of the image before I shoot it. I’m also a huge fan of the focus assist functions: I often shoot with wide-aperture primes, and if I need to check critical sharpness, the camera will zoom in to whichever portion of the frame the autofocus point is currently at as soon as I grab the manual focus ring on the lens, which makes it astoundingly easy to make sure I’ve nailed focus. Ortiz also briefly touches on the convenience of Eye AF and custom function button assignments: you can assign Eye AF to almost button you please, so when you’re using another focus mode and want to switch back and forth, all you have to do is tap the button. It’s a huge convenience for wedding and portrait shooters. Check out the video above for more!
