Our handy guide will help you choose
between DSLR and mirrorless camera
models – so you can focus on capturing
the moments that matter.
There’s been a lot of buzz
about the new kid on the
block in digital photography:
the mirrorless camera. But are
these newer cameras really going to
unseat DSLRs as the gold standard?
DSLR stands for digital single-lens
reflex. These cameras use a mirror
to reflect light, which allows you
to preview your shot through the
viewfinder. The click you hear when
you hit the shutter is the mirror
flipping up so light can hit the image
sensor and capture your shot.
Mirrorless cameras allow light to
hit the image sensor directly, which
passes a digital image onto the
preview screen. Most models feature
an electronic viewfinder so you can
still view your image through an
eyepiece like you would with a DSLR.
SIZE AND WEIGHT
With fewer moving parts, mirrorless
cameras are smaller and lighter than
DSLRs. This means they are good
for on-the-go photography. But there
is a downside: many people find the
larger DSLRs easier to hold and use.
A typical DSLR camera can take
around 800 photos on one charge,
while a typical mirrorless takes
around 400. That’s because DSLRs
can shoot without using a rear
screen or electronic viewfinder.
DSLR cameras allow you to use a
wide range of lenses from different
manufacturers. Right now,
mirrorless models are typically only
compatible with lenses from the
If you want to experiment with
different lenses, or think you might
be ready for a professional grade lens
one day, a DSLR is your best bet.
Mirrorless cameras tend to show a
more accurate preview of your final
image than DSLRs. That’s because
mirrorless cameras use an
electronic display that takes into
account changes in your settings,
while DSLR cameras rely on a
mirror to reflect the real-life image
back to you.
However, DSLR cameras tend to
give a sharper preview in low light.
Early mirrorless models used
smaller image sensors than
DSLRs, which meant lower quality
images. But today’s image sensors
have advanced to the point that
there is little difference. You’ ll be
able to take high quality photos
with either style.
The bottom line is, neither
camera is superior. It all depends
on how you use it and what you're
hoping to capture. ••
