Advanced mirrorless digital cameras have become viable alternatives, not compromises, to true optical single lens reflex cameras, and sometimes surpass others with regard to optical performance, portability and stealth.

Not so long ago, the single lens reflex was the undisputed king in and outside the studio, and anything short of this form factor was a compromise in both photographic performance and accessory options.

Even with the dropping prices of DSLRs and the rising appeal of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, the so called “bridge” camera is as popular as ever. “Bridge cameras” are big-bodied, big zoom point-and-shoot cameras that have the look and heft of a more expensive and feature-heavy camera but still maintain the simplicity of the standard and compact point-and-shoot cameras.

2012 has seen an in increase in all things mirrorless, that being a bit of an umbrella term for compact interchangeable-lens cameras, their lenses and adapters. Canon, for example, released its first mirrorless camera system in 2012 and most major manufacturers have added new cameras to their mirrorless lineups. Of course, a growing list of lenses for these cameras—of all focal lengths—is now available, too.

Sometimes technology gets in the way of quality. The convenience of features such as autofocus and optical image stabilization are hard to dispute, but some of the best glass in the world can be found in manual focus lenses that contain no electronics whatsoever. Such is the case with M-mount and M42-mount lenses made by Leica, Zeiss and Voigtlander.

A quick glance through current consumer photo magazines can be a dizzying experience… new models seem to appear on the market as quickly as manufacturers can think up new names, and reviewers assure us that the old models are "oh-so-ten-minutes-ago," replaced by something better, faster, and often cheaper.

Way back—five years ago—if you shot video, you used a video camera, and if you shot photographs, you used a still camera. Today, that distinction is all but meaningless. Almost every video camera today captures stills, and virtually every still camera now shoots video.

There’s something rather thrilling about being able to examine something up close, and it can be anything, a common object or otherwise. If it’s in print form, so much the better, because when viewing prints—especially larger prints—you don’t have to squint through a viewfinder to see it.

As camera technology continues to progress, lenses also continue to evolve. With improved sensor technology and greater resolution cameras, a lens's main progression is to keep up with the amount of data and image quality that can be resolved by an image sensor and processor.

An intermediate DSLR is what its name implies, a camera that falls between entry-level and professional-level DSLRs. While this is generally true, it should not necessarily imply that an intermediate camera is unable to produce images similar in quality to professional cameras, or that it cannot be used to its maximum potential by a novice photographer.

Serving as the contemporary progression from traditional film-based SLR cameras, a DSLR is a digital single lens reflex camera.
