I borrowed my cousin’s DSLR. Canon Rebel. He doesn’t use it much. Just wanted to feel that dinosaurus. To look through the optical viewfinder. It weights 1 kilogram with lens (0,5 kg body + 0,5 kg lens). Yes, I checked on kitchen scale. I disliked to shoot with it. Cramps in my right hand fingers when holding the grip after first 15 minutes. Chimping LCD = my head down and my eye-glasses kept sliding from my nose. Viewfinder showed only 95 % of the scene. When framing something, particulary a circus tent, in viewfinder everthing was fine, when checking LCD, I saw lamp posts on sides that I didn’t want to include. Used for 2 or 3 houres. I felt frustrated aftewards.
This is a year old photo – from February 2016. Made with Olympus mirror-less cam.
