Which is The Best System – Mirrorless or DSLR?

'Better' is a rather subjective term when it comes to comparing mirrorless and DSLR systems. Assuming that both cameras have comparable sensors and the same sensor sizes, then it’s really a matter of weighing up the pros and cons of each system and deciding if any of the diff

A fundamental difference between the two systems is that a mirrorless camera will have an electronic viewfinder or require the use of the rear screen to compose a shot, while a DSLR has an optical viewfinder. The DSLR’s viewfinder will generally be better in low light while it won’t burn through battery power nearly as fast as a mirrorless camera.

Additionally, with mirrorless systems still being quite new, the range and variety of lenses is much less than it is for DSLRs, so if a big range of lenses is important then currently the DSLR is still king.

Where the mirrorless wins is in weight and size, while the lack of a mirror mechanism means a serious speed advantage when shooting in burst mode.

DSLRs will probably have more functions and be faster in their autofocus too, but with many manufacturers seeing mirrorless as the system of the future we can expect these issues to be addressed and to see a rapid expansion of the lens choice available.
