The DSLR market is tough to break into, but you’ll find an incredible landscape of options once you have your foot in the door. DSLRs are still the camera of choice for professional photographers, but they’re also great for everyday shooters who want to get their hands on a powerful camera that can do it all.
Mirrorless cameras have been touted as “the future” for years now, and while they’re certainly not perfect, they’ve come a long way since the first models launched in 2010. Even if you’re not ready to switch from DSLR to mirrorless just yet, you might want to consider adding one of these smaller cameras to your bag, especially if you like shooting video or action shots with longer lenses.
Mirrorless cameras offer many of the same benefits as DSLRs but without some of their drawbacks. They’re smaller than DSLRs and lighter weight, so they’re easier to carry around all day long. And they offer fast autofocus performance, and they’re great for shooting action shots like sports or kids playing.
Here are a few of the best cameras you may want to look into:
- Canon EOS R3
- Nikon Z 5
- Fujifilm X-Pro3
- Pentax K-3 Mark III
- Sony A7 III
- Sony A9 II
- Olympus OM-D E-M1X II
