3+ Reasons To Get Rid Of Your DSLR - And This Is No Joke

I Know What You’re Thinking… “What Do You Mean Get Rid Of My DSLR??”

Now, that doesn’t mean I’d be willing to only take photos with my smartphone from now on. Mobile photography has come a long way these past few years, but it’s not even near the point where I would consider having only a smartphone for a camera.

Film cameras are, of course, an option. I love film photography and most of my vintage SLRs and lenses are smaller than my digital gear. Not necessarily lighter, though.

But when I need photos quickly and can’t wait until after the trip to get the film developed, I’m going to need a digital option as well.


So far I’ve hesitated, but I’m seriously considering making the move towards lighter and easier-to-carry camera gear.


He said he won’t bring his 5D iii to his trips anymore, but he still brings it with him wherever he goes. DSLR made him famous, without it, I wouldn’t know who Mike Wallace is.
