miketala: DPR's categories are outdated thus far less useful than they could be.

Mirrorless compete directly with DSLR's and have the same image quality (or near enough so for m43). The biggest difference is the viewfinder and body size.

Say I've got $700 to blow on a camera for my kid who's getting into photography & video. What do I get? DSLR? Mirrorless?

Throw out the mirrorless/dslr/dslt distinction. Use the umbrella description "System Cameras" and then break them down by average price points or desired use: Entry / Intermediate / Prosumer / Pro / Video.

It makes so much more sense, and is far more useful.

Another category that is neglected by almost all reviews is auto tracking of moving objects, sports or birds in flight. I am most interested in the latter, but seldom see any indication that actual testing was performed, only guessed at. I realize that both camera auto focus speed and telephoto speed plus operator skill all contribute to this kind of evaluation. I wish I had a lot more to go on than the "probably" and "should" guesstimates I read in the reviews.
