....or if not a definition, at least a description. Is the mere absence of a mirror the full definition of a mirrorless camera? That would mean that every digital camera in the world except DSLRs is a mirrorless. Every Canon ELPH or Powershot. Every Kodak Easyshare. Every rangie. Indeed, does it even have to be digital? Does an 8x10" view camera belong here? The old 6x6 TLRs? Do all fit into the category that is being described by the term 'mirrorless camera'? Welcome your thoughts and discussion. I have recently heard some comments on this topic that amazed me. I thought the term was well understood. Now I am not so sure.
