"Mirrorless" Cameras or "Compact System" are the biggest growing category of cameras, continuing to advance with leaps and bounds in features and performance. With the addition of Nikon and Canon to the fullframe mirrorless brands, competition is sure to star heating up!

We've picked what we think are the best mirrorless camera models of 2018, for a range of users and styles of photography.

Sony A7R Mark 3

The Sony A7R Mark III is the camera that Mirrorless fans always dreamed could exist, so it's not hard to see why it has been such a popular seller.

In a body that is smaller than a pro-level DSLR by some margin, Sony have packed a mammoth full-frame sensor with a resolution of 42.4MP. The 15-stop dynamic range is an improvement over previous incarnations in this range, as is the incredible AF system of 425 contrast-detection points and 10 frames per second continuous shooting.

  • 10fps continuous shooting
  • 5-axis Image Stabilisation

Fujifilm X-T100

The Fujifilm X-T100 is the latest addition to the successful X-series range, providing the quality and classy design that has come to be expected but at a more affordable price-point.

The understated, elegant body and anodized finish will bring to mind classic cameras of days gone by, while in performance this camera is anything but old fashioned.

A 24MP APS-C Sensor produces clean and detailed images throughout the extended ISO range, while 6 frames per second continuous shooting stops virtually any subject in its tracks.

And just like that, Canon enter the field of Full-Frame Mirrorless cameras, with the fresh and exciting EOS R. With this new system comes a new lens mount, with a select few lenses already announced and the possibility to use your existing EF and EF-S lenses via a selection of adapters.

Made for speed-lovers, the EOS R features Dual Pixel CMOS AF, with an astonishing 5655 available AF point positions, as well as 8 frames per second burst shooting.

The wait is finally over. Providing you with much of the same quality and usability of the vastly popular Nikon D850 but in a much smaller package, the Z7 is the go-to camera for those who demand the best quality, but desire to keep their kit lightweight and travel-friendly.

The Nikon Z6 serves as an all-purpose entry point into this exciting new Mirrorless system. This FX-format body features the same new mount as its sibling, the Z7, with this model being based around a sensor of 24.5 megapixels.
