When you’re just getting started in photography and you know nothing about the gear, choosing which camera to buy is a challenge. There are so many out there these days and they all offer a range of unique and confusing features that might better suit a different kind of user or type of photography. So, we’ve picked nine of the best mirrorless cameras that don’t cost a fortune but will allow you to grow and develop as your photography needs expand.
We’ve set the spending limit at $1,000 for this list, although some of the cameras here are significantly less expensive than that. Do bear in mind, that with the global silicon shortage, some of these cameras may be easier to acquire than others at the moment, but we’ve tried to pick ones that still seem quite readily available where possible.
