In the early days of this website, the discussion of what does the term "mirrorless" mean and how will we apply it at CWOM arose. You may have noticed that different sites, magazines and even manufacturers themselves use various terms. Here are a few acronyms being used: ILC – Interchangeable Lens Cameras MILC – Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras EVIL – Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens MSC – Mirrorless System Camera CSC – Compact Systems Cameras I like the Wikipedia definition: "A mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (MILC, commonly referred to simply as a "mirrorless camera"), is a camera with an interchangeable lens that does not have a mirror reflex optical viewfinder. They are a subset of interchangeable lens cameras, a category that also includes single-lens reflex cameras (SLRs or DSLRs for digital models)." What about so-called "bridge" cameras. Referring again to Wikipedia, "bridge cameras are cameras that fill the niche between the single-lens reflex cameras (SLRs) and the point-and-shoot camera." Personally, I would modify this to include MILC or SLRs. But if bridge cameras don't use a mirror, aren't they, in fact, mirrorless? Hopefully, now you can see the dilemma this poses to the site admins. Initially, our intent was to focus on mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras. But with Nikon's announcement of the "Premium Compact Line" or DL series and Fujifilm's ongoing success with the X10, X20, X30, X70, X100 et al, we've had to reconsider. We've decided to support MILC and bridge (or premium compact!) cameras within the existing Manufacturer forums. At some point in the future we may reconsider, but as of now believe this is the best approach. We'd love your feedback and thoughts on this decision. Thanks for being a member of our community.
