Electronic devices have evolved considerably over the years and cameras are no different. In addition to constant improvements in image quality, speed and performance, engineers have worked hard to expand the shooting possibilities beyond the basic exposure settings.
Some of these “extra” features would go on to become so standardised that today most of us wouldn’t consider a camera without them. Think about the first integration of autofocus in the seventies and eighties, or the video revolution that began in 2008.
Mirrorless cameras have followed the same trend and are responsible for many of the new features introduced over the past 10 years, probably as part of a strategy to make this new wave of products more appealing to consumers.
