TWiP 320 – Reflecting on Mirror-less


Hosts: Frederick Van Johnson

This week on TWiP…

  • A special round­table discussion with mirrorless mavericks Gordon Laing, Trey Ratcliff, Giulio Sciorio, and Doug Kaye

This week we’re back in a Google Hangout and Frederick is joined by an all-star panel of photographers to delve into all things mirror-less. What are mirror-less and Micro 4/3 cameras? What are the advantages and disadvantages of mirror-less technology? Which manufacturers are making the best mirror-less cameras? We answer these questions and more during our round-table discussion.
