Whether you’re photographing the solar eclipse or a short film with your friends, few things that you consider while choosing your shooting camera are lens choice, image quality and functionality of a DSLR – going from full frame to medium format.
To achieve all this in one single device, you need to burn a hole in your pocket. But we won’t let you do that because we have got some interesting mirrorless compact system cameras that give you supreme image quality and do have a lighter and cheaper body.
Mirrorless cameras, also known as CSCs (compact system cameras), offer pro features and interchangeable lens just like a DSLR but do not feature a complex mirror system. This means they are mechanically simpler and smaller in size, which are the biggest selling points of mirrorless cameras.
