Get To Know DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras

Both DSLR cameras and mirrorless cameras offer interchangeable lenses and models with features ideal for beginners, intermediate users, or professionals. Mirrorless cameras are a bit lighter, smaller, and mechanically simpler. A DSLR camera may be a bit larger but you still have lens-changing ability and an optical viewfinder system for true-to-life imagery.

Understanding DSLR Cameras

A DSLR camera has a mirror in the body directly in front of the sensor to reflect light up into a prism, sending it out thru the optical viewfinder to your eye. The image can also be viewed on the LCD screen on the back of the camera.

What Are Mirrorless Cameras?

A mirrorless camera is a type of digital camera where light comes through the lens directly onto the imaging sensor. The image can be viewed on the LCD screen on the rear of the camera but some full featured models also have the option of an electronic viewfinder (“EVF”) that replicates the image as captured by the sensor.

Regardless of your needs or budget, London Drugs carries a vast selection of DSLR and Mirrorless cameras.
