How does a compact camera works
May 9, 2011

Hi,

I guess this is a bit of a tech question...

I'm a beginner of this subject... I'm planning to buy a entry level DSLR and have been reading a lot about DSLR and mirrorless functionality. But then I was thinking what is a compact camera, if it is not a SLR nor mirrorless, under what category does compacts fall under? How do compact cameras be so compact? Also can mirrorless cameras be categorized under compact cameras?

I couldn't find a good article about how compact cameras work...

Thanks in advance...
