    Good evening Guys,

    I am new to the forum but an oldie in photography. I seldom shoot anymore until the pandemic gave me a lot of time in my hands. :1219:

    Initially I was thinking of upgrading my 10 years Canon EOS 750D into a FF Mirrorless camera but as I grow older, I have the tendency to leave the heavy stuff behind. Last January I bought a Huawei P30 pro and my son also has a Samsung s10 and my wife has an iPhone 11 pro and I have noticed that they all take great pictures.

    I have no argument against the quality of the IL Cameras but I find them quite bulky and upon my recollection the biggest print that I do is an A3+ (13"x19") print, which most reviews says is within the capability of mobile photography.

    Finally I made the decision to go mobile photography and forego buying a mirrorless camera.
    Added some Off Camera Flash Accessories and start shooting as avidly as when I was younger.
    I will mostly be contributing in the Mobile Photography Section.

    Thank you guys for allowing me to join your forum. :1247:

    Sincerely

    John

    Welcome to the forum. I suppose the pandemic had a good reason for being, after all :)

    Thank you PJM, I just noticed your Avatar, it seems that you are very physically fit with all the kayaking. :)

    I hope everybody keeps safe. :)
