Canon hints at mirrorless interchangeable lens camera in 2012Recently, quite a number of camera manufacturers have been focusing on creating lightweight, portable compact digital cameras for the regular consumers. But what about professionals who require the features and quality that DSLRs provide? It looks like Canon is gunning for that market next – at least according to a hint from the company.

The head of Canon’s camera group, Masaya Maeda, dropped a hint in a recent interview saying that they were at least investigating, if not making, a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. Though they didn’t confirm the existence of a product, they did mention that there would be an “interesting product” with small dimensions next year. We’ve still got a long way to go until then, so hold on tight. I’m sure all DSLR owners would welcome the arrival of such a camera; who wouldn’t like to have a DSLR light enough to bring around all the time?
