Movng to mirrorless or not ?

Recommended Posts

My vision is going the wrong way. I can not see anymore through the viewfinder of my D7000.

I am looking for a camera with the same quality but where i can see through a screen.

Which camera has this at the moment, ?

Which lenses and housing do you advise for WA and Macro ?

 

Thx !

You can use the D7000 in live view, why not?

I've been very happy with my mirrorless set up (Olympus EM-1 in Nauticam housing), but have you considered getting a magnifying viewfinder for your DSLR? I've used mine both with my old Canon DSLR and the EM-1 (electronic viewfinder) and it makes a huge difference. In fact, even with the mirrorless EM-1 I prefer to use the magnified viewfinder over the rear LCD mostly because of in water characteristics (easier to hold steady, better diver trim).

Almost all DSLRs can be used in live view (the little "LV" button to the right of the screen on D7000) and would be just as easy to see as any compact or mirrorless system.

I use a D7000 on land and a Panny GX1 underwater. That should give a hint at my vote.

 

And while the D7000 can be used with live view, the focus performance is less than poor. Whether that is a problem for you depends on your subjects, of course, but I could not live it.
