With the instant availability to the good quality cameras, thanks to the smartphones, photography has become so simple these days. To top it, there are some really cool photo editing apps that can effortlessly enhance your pictures in a few seconds. The social media and applications like Instagram have brought out the photographer in everyone. If you would look at the number of social media pages and groups dedicated to photography, you will realize how this hobby has surged in the recent past.
With so many photographers on the go everywhere, the brands are pumping efforts into development of the cameras that not only shoot high-quality images but are also cost-effective. No one can deny that DSLR cameras are truly what every professional photographer and even a serious hobbyist should own. However, it seems that these cameras will soon be challenged by the growing reign of the mirrorless cameras.
Although mirrorless cameras are not yet the preferred choice of the professionals, it looks like they will soon become mainstream photo implements and will challenge the rule of DSLRs. They are cheaper to buy and click high-quality pictures. At this moment, while we write this, these cameras do not offer as much versatility as the DSLRs. However, with the pursuit for innovations in the mirrorless technology, very soon they might give the DSLRs the run for the money. You will be surprised to know that the smartphone cameras use the mirrorless technology and some of them shoot really good quality pictures. We will have to wait and see what future has in the store.
