Are you shooting with one of the mirrorless wonders that are quickly taking over the photography world? If so, you don't want to miss this little tidbit of information.
It seems like mirrorless cameras are on everyone's radar right now. With 2018 seeing the release of the Sony a7 III, the Nikon Z6 and Z7, and Canon’s EOS R, many new users will soon be trying out these beauties for the first time. If you are one of them, what you'll see in this video might be a bit of a surprise.
It seems there are some subtle differences in light admission and the rendering of bokeh with these new mirrorless cameras, depending on which shutter mode you are using, even when all of your other settings remain the same. Manny Ortiz explored this with the Sony a7 III after hearing about these anomalies from one of his viewers. In this video, he demonstrates some surprising differences that you are going to want to see and learn from if you plan to use the electronic first curtain shutter on your mirrorless camera.
I've yet to get my hands on a mirrorless camera myself, but I've had my eye on the new Canon version, and seeing these differences was an eye-opener. It leaves me to wonder if the camera companies will see this as enough of an issue to correct it, or if it will simply come down to user preference.
