Sony to Canon – Why I Made The Switch

After using my Sony A7SII for 3 years, it was time for me to upgrade my camera. The A7SII had served me very well, but there were a few things I didn’t like about it. The biggest one was the battery life. I found myself having to switch batteries 4-5 times on each shoot. It was super annoying!! Another issue I had was the A7SII is only 12.2MP. I was beginning to do more photo work and needed something that could keep up. I’ve broken down the main reasons why I switched from Sony to Canon.
