Not all quality cameras are bulky DSLRs. In fact, the world of mirrorless cameras has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, meaning it’s now possible to find lightweight compact cameras that are capable of capturing professional-standard, technically accomplished images. It’s a brave new world for serious photographers who are more used to hauling a lot of heavy kit around, and a great opportunity for keen novices to snap seriously impressive photos without tackling the complexities of DSLR photography.
Our collection of mirrorless camera spans a wide enough range of cameras to present every level of photographer with a mirrorless camera that perfectly matches their budget and expertise. Specialist photographers with an interest in video need look no further than the acclaimed Panasonic GH5, an innovative 4K camera that’s garnered plaudits for its stunning 4K video capture. It also showcases the remarkable advances in mirrorless camera technology thanks to its high-performance Digital Live MOS sensor. The GH5 is available from Currys complete with a versatile 12-60 mm lens that should prove to be a great all-rounder.
The brilliant Sony a7S is no less impressive. Thanks to its large full-frame CMOS sensor, which offers 50 times more surface area than a conventional mirrorless camera sensor, this Sony mirrorless camera is able to achieve excellent performance in low-light conditions and finer control over depth of field.
Alongside our Panasonic and Sony mirrorless cameras you’ll find a wide choice of Fujifilm and Canon mirrorless cameras. Or, if you’re more at home with DSLRs, make sure you view all DSLR cameras to see our extensive collection
Small and mighty, a mirrorless camera ticks all the boxes for accuracy, speed and detail.
We have mirrorless cameras at Currys that are body only or a single or twin lens kit. Without a mirror box taking up room, these devices can be much smaller than a DSLR. Handy when you want to capture an evening of high jinx without your arm aching. Instead of an optical viewfinder, you get a digital preview on the electronic viewfinder or rear screen, giving instant confirmation that you captured the perfect picture. A vari-angle or tiltable screen opens up your viewpoint, letting you see what you’re capturing no matter your position.
Match your megapixel requirement to your money, with models ranging from 13 to 45 megapixels. Forget faffing about with memory cards by choosing a gadget that has built-in WiFi and Bluetooth. Transfer to your tablet or get instant access to your images via an app on your smartphone, so you can share on your socials straight away.
With a full frame mirrorless camera you get greater flexibility with depth of field than a crop sensor, so you get to decide where you want emphasis in your shot. A full frame sensor is the same size as 35mm format.
Love to take photos at twilight or in dimly lit rooms? Look for a device with impressive image stabilisation to shoot the scene handheld, so you don’t even need to set up a tripod. Or how about moving subjects. If wildlife or sports are your areas of interest, then autofocus performance will be key to tracking unpredictable beasts — whether that’s in the woods or on the football pitch. Is video-making more your thing? Choose a 4K mirrorless camera to take movies with seriously detailed footage.
