What camera should I buy?

Ronette from Norco, CA

Sony a7s

Ronette would like to upgrade her Nikon D3300 and Panasonic Lumix G3 digital cameras. What would be the next level? Leo says that the next step would be to go with a bigger sensor, like full frame. That will give her more dynamic range and the ability to take in more light. Leo says that mirrorless cameras like the Sony A7 could work. They are remarkable, but many photographers prefer the 'through the lens' mirror design. The quality of the images would be the same, so it really comes down to preference. It has the same sensor as the Canon.

The A7S II is better in low light, though. But if Ronette went with Sony and its E mount, she would need to get new lenses. Then again, she may be able to get an adapter by Metabones that will enable her to use those Nikon and MFT lenses with her camera.

What about a portable printer? Leo says that a portable printer will never give her good photos. She's much better off coming home and printing. Epson and Canon both make battery powered portable printers, though.
