Re: First camera: DSLR or mirrorless
In reply to TTMartin, 9 months ago

Due to their current limitations mirrorless camera just aren't selling well in North America and Europe. There biggest advantage small size is seen as a disadvantage in a market where the better more expensive cameras were always bigger

Interesting observation.    Even though I live in Europe, or at least the UK, I don't travel there much.

I have just come back from a vacation in the US and was surprised by the number of dslr's I saw.   Don't want to sound sniffy,  but many seemed to be being used as p&s,  with not too much thought even for composition.   Seems to be mirrored (!) by the number of threads I read here that ask "Which dslr should I buy (implied because I aspire to be a serious photographer)" rather than saying what the poster wants to do,  and asking" What camera........ "

None of my business, of course, but I do think folks can miss the best way into this hobby.
