Both Nikon and Canon, the last major manufacturers to avoid the full-frame mirrorless market, released feature-packed cameras complete with radically new designs and lens mounts, and we've seen ambitious new models from Fujifilm and Panasonic that bring features not before seen in DSLRs. Traditional DSLRs aren't going anywhere for a while, but expect to see more and more mirrorless designs from all these companies.Read more: https://www.engadget.com/2019/04/15/m...Subscribe to Engadget on YouTube: http://engt.co/subscribeEngadget's Buyer's Guide: https://www.engadget.com/buyers-guide/Get More Engadget: • Like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/engadget• Follow us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/engadget• Follow us on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/engadget• Read more: http://www.engadget.comEngadget is the original home for technology news and reviews.

    Finally, a good explanation of dslr and mirrorless. Instead of just "mirrorless is smaller bcs it has no mirror inside, the end."

    Final verdict: If you know what you’re doing, you can take killer shots with either system.

    This was an amazing video. Went into this thinking I was not going to learn anything new but I was wrong. Give this man a raise for God's sake.

    My D7200 had 2 bars on its battery, I had no spare atm, and my wife wanted to go to the beach. I snapped 200-250 shots... still had 2 bars of battery. That alone make mirrorless a hard sell for me.

    Wonderful analysis DSLR vs. Mirrorless. Thank you for that. Though, I must point out that the battery in Mirrorless camera is almost close to DSLR performance, specially the new Sony NP-FZ100.

    I went into this video not knowing if I'd rather have a DSLR or Mirrorless camera.
    After watching this video and waffling back & forth 17 times I'm, w/o a doubt, 100% sure I'm going to buy the...umm,
    well, either a DSLR or a Mirrorless camera!
    Good, informative video nevertheless!

    Best camera systems comparison I have ever seen. Complex, to the point and without strong biases. Loved the new technologies presentation as it developed over time.

    Incredibly informative video! Lots of great information and points here for the Newbie or the Vet Shooter. This is a must watch for someone on the fence between MILC and DSLR; the great dilemma.
