What is so special about Mirrorless Cameras?
Glad you asked! They are lighter and quieter than your traditional DSLR. That’s because they replace the complex and heavy mirror & viewfinder system on a DSLR (with all its noisy moving parts) with an electronic viewfinder or just looking at the screen. The smallest mirrorless cameras could be confused for point and shoot cameras (with the bonus of interchangeable lenses) and even a large mirrorless camera is about the same size as a traditional DSLR. It’s not just the camera bodies that are smaller and lighter - new lens designs are ALSO smaller and lighter, with many users saving half the weight of their camera bag or more! Like a traditional DSLR you can also change lenses, which is a plus, and all common focal lengths for recreational (and even advanced ametuer/prosumer) are covered nicely, however the range of lenses you can switch to is not quite as extensive as it is for DSLR at this time. One major difference between a mirrorless camera and a DSLR, is that there is no traditional viewfinder, on a mirrorless, you look at either the rear screen or an electronic viewfinder. The viewfinders in current Mirrorless cameras are so good that most users can’t tell whether they are a DSLR or mirrorless camera. A mirrorless camera would make a great graduation gift for a student if they are already interested in photography, or are planning some travels over the summer. If you have an amateur or hobbyist photographer for a dad, upgrading his current mirrorless lens or camera body would spark his photography passion for sure! Below are some options for mirrorless cameras that range in price and functionality for you to consider.
