There are pros and cons to both DSLR and mirrorless cameras, but one advantage of mirrorless is making headlines after the Democratic debates this week.
But New York Times photographer Doug Mills wasn’t among those who had brought along a Canon or Nikon DSLR, which are still the dominant tools of choice among photojournalists.

Samsung has jumped the CES 2010 gate and announced a new, rangefinder-style camera a couple days before the gadget-fest begins. The NX10 joins the Olympus Pen and the Panasonic GF-1 in a growing segment, made up of cameras with large, DSLR-sized sensors in mirror-less, compact bodies.
