Choosing to shoot with a mirrorless camera is not only about size and weight. At Canon, designing a new camera system from the ground up provided an opportunity to make major advancements in lens technology that will carry still photographers and videographers through the next several decades. This webinar will focus on mirrorless cameras, with specific emphasis on lens technology and the new Canon RF lens mount, what makes it different from DSLR lens technology and the advantages of the new mirrorless lenses, in both optics and features. It will also go into other advantages of mirrorless camera body designs, and technological advancements that improve overall performance and usability.
