Electronic Viewfinders are Handy for Landscapes
Don’t get me wrong – there are tons of advantages to using an optical viewfinder like the one in my Nikon D850.
However, landscape photographers stand to gain a few things by using a mirrorless camera that as an electronic viewfinder (EVF).
For starters, an electronic viewfinder allows you to see the image you’re capturing in its exact form. That means less guesswork about what will and won’t be included in the frame.
Furthermore, EVFs give you all the data you need in the viewfinder to get a better shot. That includes having exposure adjustments appearing in the EVF for quicker and easier changes to aperture, shutter speed, and ISO.
EVFs also shows you highlight warnings and histograms, meaning you don’t have to step back from the camera and view those all-important features on the LCD, as you do with DSLRs.
There are a lot of factors involved in getting a high-quality shot, but one of the most important is having the necessary information to determine things like exposure settings. Mirrorless cameras simply give that information to you in a way that’s more accessible.
