p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Food blogging /secondary event camera


So, with some encouragement I'm going to start a food blog for my area, and I need a second camera to use while shooting events and weddings etc.

I'm looking for a mirrorless small camera to compliment my 5dmIII which I use with low f stop lenses. The system is too bulky to bring into restaurants, and I want something to be easily useable when shooting events so I can have the second system around my neck ready to go.

Primes a re key. Low light and narrow focus are really important to me.

I've been reading a lot of threads and it seems a lot of my answers swirl around Fuji and Olympus. I'm not sure which of these camera manufactures to aim for (or any other options) and of these. There are so many options which to look for. I'm not opposed to used camera systems either.

Thanks for your recommendations.

I would recommend looking at Ming Thein's blog, he writes a lot about mirrorless systems,

AF speed a criteria? If you can live with decent but not exceptional AF it sounds like you want a Fuji setup. Fast primes & low light are pretty much the exact use case for the X series cameras.
