I’d like to introduce myself as the newest Hybrid Hero. My name is Steven Lynch and I’m an Editorial, Lifestyle, and Creative Portrait Photographer in Los Angeles. With many professional photographers starting to look at mirrorless cameras more seriously now, I ask myself the question.
“Do I need that heavy dSLR anymore? Would a more advanced Micro Four Thirds camera be enough?”
I know for many of the Pros, that answer is still probably NO, but honestly I don’t think I need my heavy Canon dSLRs anymore. After dragging my heels for the past few months I’ve finally pulled the trigger. I’m selling off all my Canon gear and this past week I ordered the Panasonic Lumix G5 kit, which I got an awesome deal on. It’s about half the price of the Olympus OM-D, which is a camera I love a lot, but budget is still a big concern.
I’d like to invite all of you to join me as I discover mirrorless cameras, answer quiet a few questions and move my professional photography into the Hybrid market. It’s going to be a very exciting journey that I’m really looking forward to.
