DSLR cameras have their fair share of advantages and disadvantages over their smaller rivals, but at the end of a long shooting day there’s one difference than lingers on – the weight.
The size and weight of a DSLR might feel right for those who shoot with long lenses or have big hands, but usually it’s just the price one has to pay to enjoy the benefits DSLRs have to offer.
With mirrorless cameras gaining popularity, the weight issue has become more important and an increasing number of photographers are deciding to compromise somewhat in certain parameters in exchange for a lightweight system.
Obviously Olympus won’t advertise the OM-D EM-5 Mark II’s shortcomings, but it created an entire (hilarious) mocumentary campaign around DSLR shooters suffering from the DSL-ARM syndrome, where the arm carrying the heavy camera becomes longer than the other arm.
