ben moon made the switch

(Ben Moon)For more than a decade, Ben Moon was a Canon DSLR shooter, but he was inspired to seek out a smaller and lighter system because he wanted something less cumbersome and obtrusive. The compact size and low weight are immensely helpful on mountain climbing assignments, and the low-key nature of a small camera works well in portrait situations when a daunting DSLR might “change the vibe.” A friend convinced Moon to try Sony’s a7 series on a shoot in Norway.

A photo that’s captured with a 35mm full-frame sensor will look different than one that’s captured with film.
