Digital Cameras Explained: DSLR vs Mirrorless vs Point And Shoot Cameras

Sony A7 Owners Get A New Super-Wide Lens, With New Primes Coming Soon

Sony’s trio of full-frame mirrorless cameras, the a7, a7r and a7s, are wonderfully capable machines. Unfortunately, there just aren’t that many native lenses to choose from.

Last year’s Panasonic GM1 was an absolutely tiny camera with interchangeable lenses. It seemed like a curious design, because once you changed lens from the kit pancake to a normal-sized lens, it turned out to be not-so-tiny anymore. That hasn’t stopped Panasonic from pushing out a similarly small follow-up, the souped-up GM5.

Gizmodo Camera Buying Guide 2014: Mirrorless Cameras Explained

If you haven’t bought a camera within the last couple of years, you’d be forgiven for being a little confused when you walk into your local camera store. There’s a relatively new category of cameras that aren’t point-and-shoot compacts and aren’t digital SLRs. Mirrorless digital cameras take the best parts of a DSLR and shoehorn them into an almost-compact-camera sized chassis, giving you a portable shooter that can capture photos you’d be happy to share online or print.
