" Although professional shooters may not want to rely on a mirrorless camera as a primary recording device, they are more than adequate as backup cameras, and for web output. "

Mirrorless cameras combine the automation of compact point and shoot cameras with the interchangeable lenses and larger imaging sensors of DSLRs. Today’s mirrorless cameras offer several intriguing options for shooters on a budget and those seeking a smaller form factor for informal or up close and personal photography and digital video capture (such as adult content production), without taking too big of a hit on cost, size, image quality or advanced features.

Although mirrorless cameras have been available for several years now, the category underwent major expansion in the past year to deliver a range of devices from manufacturers such as Nikon, Sony, Olympus and Panasonic — with some models delivering outstanding performance and flexible options.

These cameras not only fit smaller hands better, but also often produce images rivaling their larger and more expensive brethren, with HD video, HDR imaging and RAW output offered on topend models.

Major benefits to these cameras’ use of interchangeable lenses include enabling a wider range of shooting positions as well as the use of adaptors that allow the attachment of accessory lenses from different manufacturers — extending the photographer’s creative options, while protecting his budget.

While less expensive mirrorless cameras rely on LCD screens for composing and reviewing images, more advanced devices feature (or offer as an option) an electronic viewfinder (EVF) for more accurate focusing and viewing under direct lighting conditions, such as outdoors on a sunny day.

Autofocus and exposure, high quality stereo audio recording and high ISO ranges increase these cameras’ usability, while their mirrorless construction simplifies construction; reducing moving parts and thus increasing reliability and cost effectiveness while mitigating camera vibration.

Although professional shooters may not want to rely on a mirrorless camera as a primary recording device, they are more than adequate as backup cameras (especially if compatible lenses are available), and for web output — making mirrorless cameras an intriguing option for adult shooters on the go.
