How many people do you know who carry a tablet and a laptop around with them, and now some DSLR owners are thinking of popping in a slimmer, mirrorless body to their camera bags no doubt. This new and emerging breed of camera has many DSLR like features but come in a much slimmer and more portable format than traditional cameras.

With mobile phones fast gobbling up the “point and shoot “market, camera makers like Sony, Nikon, Panasonic and now Canon have had to respond to consumer demand and bring out new technology to make cameras that are more portable than a traditional DSLR but give close to top quality picture responses with a variety of lens choices on offer.
