DSLR or mirrorless? Full frame or crop sensor? There are a lot of options available to photographers today, but which ones are the best when it comes to macro photography?
Let’s find out!
DSLR vs. Mirrorless
One major advantage that DSLRs have over mirrorless systems is that they typically have a larger working distance, so you don’t have to be as close to the subject, yet can still photograph them at up to a 1:1 magnification. The larger the working distance, the less likely you are to frighten off a live subject, or cast shadows on the scene with your gear. Of course, the major drawback of DSLR systems is that they are expensive – some macro lenses cost more than a mirrorless camera!
