Landscape photographer pits his full-frame DSLR against his APS-C Fujifilm X-T2

For a lot of photographers with DSLR camera gear, a lighter and more compact mirrorless camera can be an attractive alternative. For landscape and nature photographers in particular, who often bring a heavy kit with them, being able to lighten your load without sacrificing image quality sounds great. Photographer Nigel Danson has a Nikon D810 kit and a Fujifilm X-T2. He's been using both of them for the last year or so but has never compared them directly. Until now.

In his latest video, seen below, Danson takes both cameras out and shoots them side-by-side so that he can compare the final print quality from each camera in similar shooting situations. It's important to note that as a landscape photographer, Danson is not as concerned with speed or autofocus capabilities of a camera as say, a sports photographer would be. Ultimately, his primary concern is how good a camera is for making 16 x 24-inch prints. Does the full-frame sensor of the D810 easily beat the APS-C X-T2? Watch the video to find out.
