22 Canon logoCanon has its fair share of top notch DSLRs, but what separates them from the likes of Olympus and Panasonic would be the fact that they have yet to make the plunge into the world of mirrorless cameras – basically, we are talking about the Micro Four Thirds market here. Well, glad to say that Canon has performed a U-turn on their previous decision, and will roll out their very first mirrorless camera from the middle of September onwards in an effort to capture a chunk of the tiny, albeit growing, interchangeable-lens cameras which bitter rival Nikon ventured into in 2011.

It is said that Canon is able to have a production capacity of 100,000 of such mirrorless cameras each month. Basically, Micro Four Third cameras will have large sensors that deliver near DSLR image quality, but does not come with any optical viewfinders at all. This offers the advantage of having a smaller camera body – and in turn, making it lighter, of course. Do you think Canon will be able to make a big splash in the mirrorless camera market?
