The advancement in computing and tech has introduced so many innovations to daily living that tasks carried out with huge equipments before can now be done with tools meagre in size but capable in every way. As an example, years ago, capturing photographs were done using large folding cameras that is just impossible to lug around with you. Then came smaller analog, film cameras, which was soon followed by digital cameras, DSLRs, compact mirrorless cameras, and smartphones. But as with any photography enthusiast, the image quality smartphone cameras produce can never equal that of DSLRs. This is where mirrorless cameras come in handy. Mirrorless cameras are easily the go-to option for consumers who want the functionality of a DSLR camera in a discreet, lightweight, compact, and travel-friendly form factor.
