A Better Name Than “Mirrorless”

October 28, 2013 | By Christopher Robinson

But other than SLR, and of course, DSLR, I’m hard-pressed to think of a any particularly good names for any photographic technology. Do you have an idea for a better name than "mirrorless"? Send it my way.

The second image, below, was made Wednesday morning under overcast skies as the snow started to fall. I used a fast shutter speed (1/90th sec.) to freeze the motion of the snowflakes, which created a faint white dot pattern across the frame.
