  • Tom Savage, Mirrorless Wildlife Photography & Tips for Making Digital Images

Award-winning club member Tom Savage now uses a mirrorless camera, which required learning new technology and techniques.

He will discuss what he has learned about mirrorless cameras and will address frequent comments and questions about their use at the club’s Thursday meeting April 4. He also will discuss his technique for improving the quality of digital images, especially at high ISO, which is useful for both DSLR and mirrorless users.

Tom-Savage-400wSays Tom: “Two years ago, I investigated mirrorless cameras for the weight savings, but I wanted a lens with a lot of reach for wildlife. I wanted a camera that can capture the fast moving action of wildlife and sports, since I also like to photograph rodeos. After some research, I found the camera system that meets my needs and traded all my DSLR equipment for a mirrorless system at a reasonable price. But I found there was a huge learning curve because mirrorless cameras can have a lot more functions than DSLRs.”

Since then, Tom has traveled to Africa, Alaska, and many places in Texas, Louisiana and Missouri with his mirrorless equipment.

Adds Tom: “The program is not a sales pitch for my new system nor for mirrorless cameras in general.”
