INTRODUCING THE NEW MIRRORLESS REVOLUTION
The digital SLR market is extremely buoyant and remains the number one option for those who seriously wish to learn the fine art of ‘real’ photography.
However the latest innovation of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (MILC), hereafter referred to as ‘mirrorless cameras’, has caused quite a stir and some controversy. The mirrorless system has advantages over both the compact and DSLR camera ranges.
Quite simply, the mirrorless system echoes the technology within DSLRs; by excluding the space consuming mirror system, mirrorless cameras are much more compact, lightweight and portable. The system sits somewhere between compact and DSLR.
It’s an interchangeable lens system with a large impressive sensor; there’s no question that the step-up from compact to mirrorless is a big one when it comes to quality of output.
A mirrorless camera offers very much the same features as a DSLR, with currently, the notable restriction on aperture choice. Prices for kits, bodies and lenses are perhaps a little high, however as production increases prices will no doubt fall accordingly in due course.
Mirrorless cameras could well be the future of photography, there’s no doubt as to the excellence and features that the technology delivers; it might just be the system for you. Check it out!
