In­ter­change­able-lens cam­eras come in two types: DSLRs with op­ti­cal viewfind­ers, and mir­ror­less mod­els with elec­tronic view­ing

AL­MOST all se­ri­ous pho­tog­ra­phers pre­fer to use cam­eras with in­ter­change­able lenses, as this gives the great­est de­gree of cre­ative flex­i­bil­ity. At one time, this meant dig­i­tal sin­gle-lens re­flex (DSLR) cam­eras, but these have now been joined by mir­ror­less com­pact sys­tem cam­eras (CSCs) that use elec­tronic viewfind­ers. Pre­vi­ously, these lagged be­hind DSLRs in some re­spects such as aut­o­fo­cus. But the lat­est mod­els have nar­rowed the gap con­sid­er­ably, and are true al­ter­na­tives to DSLRs, of­fer­ing the same image qual­ity and cre­ative op­tions. Cam­era man­u­fac­tur­ers of­fer a range of mod­els, from sim­ple, rel­a­tively in­ex­pen­sive be­gin­ner-friendly de­signs through to so­phis­ti­cated pro­fes­sional mod­els. In the mid­dle of the range you’ll find en­thu­si­ast cam­eras with more ad­vanced con­trol lay­outs.
