A few weeks ago I made a big decision about my street photography. I decided to buy another camera, and one specifically for street photography. It’s the first time I’ve made a specialised camera purchase, deciding to choose a camera purely for what it can offer me as a ‘pure’ street photography camera. To cut a long story short, I’ve swapped my jack of all trades Canon 6D DSLR for a Fujifilm X-Pro1 mirrorless camera. It wasn’t an easy decision, but read on for my early impressions of the switch I made, as well as a list of reasons why I swapped my DSLR for a mirrorless camera for street photography.

The Canon 6D for Street Photography

Introduction

At Street Hunters we like to review gear for our readers so you can get an idea of how gear performs and if it might work well for you and your style of photography. In this review I will analyse my own Canon EOS 6D, to tell you my experiences with using this camera. Being a DSLR camera, the 6D isn’t a type of camera most well known for street photography. However, DSLRs are incredibly versatile cameras and many people may have bought them for a wide variety of uses, and will want to apply them to street photography. Equally some photographers will be using them to photograph for their business (perhaps weddings, or sports), and then also using the same camera to pursue street photography as their hobby. For some reasons as to why a DSLR is good for street photography, check out Rob Heron’s Guide to Using A DSLR for Street Photography.
