With no mirror mechanism or optical viewfinder, mirrorless cameras are generally much more portable and lightweight than traditional DSLRs. They’re also referred to as compact system cameras (CSCs), and like their DSLR cousins they have the ability to swap and change lenses to suit your specific subject matter.
The Micro Four Thirds lens mount, shared by Panasonic and Olympus, has the largest lens range. Some mirrorless mounts aren’t as well established, so make sure the system has the lenses you need before investing in the camera body. Some models also have large DSLR-sized sensors to deliver fantastic image quality.
