Mirrorless as the Universal Mount: Brian Smith at PIX 2015
Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Brian Smith has an extraordinary portfolio, with a career shooting celebrity portraits for over 30 years, but like many other photographers he's got one problem - a lot of legacy glass in his closet and nowhere to put it. At least that was the case until he got his hands on his first mirrorless camera. With the versatile sizes of the cameras, availability of many kinds of adapters and the ability to use focus peaking with manual focus lenses, he found that mirrorless became a universal mount for some of his favorite legacy lenses.
Smith spoke at PIX 2015 about the ability of a mirrorless camera to adapt older lenses, discussing some of his favorite adapters for common mounts including Canon, Nikon, and Leica lenses, and providing tips on getting the best results with legacy glass. See the full discussion below.
