Hello. I've searched through many previous posts giving camera advice, but I'm not finding enough information specific to my situation. I'm sure all of you can give me some good advice.
I love taking pictures when we travel; they are my main souvenirs. I use them to create photo albums and also to do framed wall prints; I have enlargements as big as 16 x 20 and wouldn't rule out wanting future larger prints (if only I had more wall space!!).
I love my current DSLR; it is a 6-year-old Canon that works well for me. I am not a camera geek and don't play around much with individual settings, and the Canon gives me great shots using its many auto features. I generally travel with my 18-55mm lens. I also have a 55-250mm telephoto that sees a lot of use close to home, but it's just too heavy to travel with. I don't take any video when we travel, just still shots.
My only issue with the DSLR is of course the overall weight. I have been considering switching to a mirrorless camera for a long time now, but I'm not convinced it would deliver on the photo enlargements. Even though I'm not a camera geek, I do like good quality prints, and anything grainy or less clear or less saturated would really bother me.
This summer, we are planning to travel to Switzerland, the land of big, beautiful photo opportunities. I am again considering switching to a mirrorless, but I'm worried that I'd bring home shots that I couldn't use on my walls. I'd rather hoof the DSLR than risk no enlargements at all.
Feedback from those of you who use your photos in the same way? Would you bring just a mirrorless and be happy with the results?
Thanks so much!
