The World of Mirror-less Cameras

Description

The Color Camera Club of Westchester is again hosting a photographic event designed to incourage camera enthusiasts to expand their talents and their love for image making.

The dawn of a new era is upon us. For more than 100 years, camera companies have been trying to squeeze the best specs into the smallest available formats. Smartphones and point-and-shoot cameras are too limiting, and digital SLRs are too bulky. Enter the Mirrorless Generation. Now, we can pack big image quality into a small, travel-friendly package.

Whether you are looking for a new camera or one to complement your existing system, Gabriel Biderman will help you wade through the latest crop of mirrorless cameras. With some companies offering up to five levels of mirrorless cameras, we will focus on the higher-end ones that Biderman feels can replace your DSLR—in most situations.  

Bring a SD memory card because – with the support of B&H, Gabriel will bring many of the popular mirrorless cameras for you to get some hands-on experience with to help you figure out which one fits you the best.   

 

 

Gabriel Biderman has been pushing the limits of imaging technology for over 20 years. The constant search for a new way to see and create has led Gabriel to use everything from pinholes, large format, and the latest in digital technology.  He is the co-founder of National Parks at Night and author of the book Night Photography – From Snapshots to Great Shots.

Biderman’s work has been exhibited in NY, London, San Francisco, and Hawaii. To learn more about Gabriel visit ruinism.com

 

Equipment/materials you are bringing: (if it is a laptop, please indicate if it is a PC or a Mac)

I’ll bring my Mac Laptop with connections for a 45m-1 hour presentation.  Afterwards I’d love to have 4-5 stations (set up prior) where people can test the latest Sony, Fuji, Olympus, Canon, etc.  I’d love to give them another 45 minutes to play.  Again, people should bring a current SD card – SDHC or SDXC so that they can leave with some images that they can look at further at home.

I figure 5 smaller tables that people can use the cameras and I’ll bring 5 different, yet simple lighting set-ups.  Each group can take turns taking portraits of each other, so they can see how the focus, sharpness, and image quality handles.  

Come join us for this special program.  Coffee at 7:30 and the program at 8  pm
