Mirrorless Cameras

The mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera  is a class of digital system cameras that provides an interchangeable lens mount to a smaller mirrorless camera. Also called a  "hybrid camera" and "compact system camera", the body is thinner than a digital SLR (DSLR) because it does not use a mechanical mirror to switch the scene between the optical viewfinder and image sensor. Mirrorless cameras are also called "mirrorless DSLRs" or "mirrorless SLRs" and are becoming the choice of amateur photographers who want to migrate from point-and-shoot cameras. As these hybrids continue to increase sensor size and add high-end features, as well as offer a wide variety of lenses, they are expected to be a great alternative to the DSLR.
