Why is the Canon G1 X being referred to as a 'mirrorless' camera?
Jan 19, 2012

...In the same context as m43 cams.

While it is true that the G1 X doesn't have a mirror, neither did the G11, G10... nor any other point and shoot camera that I'm aware of.

Has someone quietlly changed the definition of mirrorless (a silly way to categorize cameras in the first place IMHO)?

Never put off until tomorrow. . .
that which you can avoid doing altogether.
