What is a Mirrorless Camera?
As the name suggests, Mirrorless Cameras do not have a mirror mechanism. It works without a reflex mirror. Light travels directly to the digital sensor through the lens, which then shows the image on the Camera's LCD screen. It allows you to make changes in the setting and preview before you click on the shot button. Mirrorless Cameras are Mirrorless bodies with interchangeable lenses.
How does a Mirrorless Camera work?
In a Mirrorless Camera, there is no mirror, no OVF (Optical Viewfinder), and no pentaprism like a DSLR. The light passes straight through the lens to the sensor, which handles autofocus. The sensor sends the image to the electronic viewfinder and the Camera's LCD screen. In the viewfinder, we can see what exactly the image is going to look like. We can adjust settings and make changes to the image in real-time before capture.
