Previously, we extolled the virtues of DSLR cameras, at least when compared to point-and-shoot models. Although we stand by that critique, there are certainly other options for the serious photographer to consider. Specifically, mirrorless digital cameras offer many benefits over their mirrored counterparts.
For the sake of clarity, the “mirrorless” cameras we’re referring to do not include fixed-lens, point-and-shoot models. While that type of camera offers a lot for beginners, the lack of interchangeable lenses will eventually hinder a user’s growth. That’s where mirrorless cameras come in. As the name suggests, these devices lack the mirrors and optical viewfinders found in DSLRs. However they retain the use of interchangeable lenses, which is a major plus. And because they lack mirrors, they are considerably less bulky, which is another major advantage.
So if you’re unfamiliar with mirrorless digital, interchangeable lens cameras (ILCs), but want to give them a try, you should seriously consider buying a used model and accessories from KEH Camera. Because the company offers products that are up to 40-percent below retail, it’s a great way to familiarize yourself with the camera without breaking the bank. And because each pre-owned item is inspected and certified by KEH’s expert photography technicians, you know you’re getting a quality item despite the discounted price.
As we mentioned above, mirrorless cameras offer many advantages for both aspiring and professional photographers. And thanks to the prices offered by KEH, it’s possible to upgrade to these devices at a far more reasonable cost.
