I am attempting to understand mirrorless cameras and I have read these two questions and answers:
What are the technical advantages and disadvantages of mirrorless?
Are DSLRs a dying breed, making now the time to switch to a mirrorless camera system?
and I am still a bit confused. I guess to better understand mirrorless cameras I should first fully understand what a mirror in a DSLR does and how it functions. How does the mirror in a DSLR operate?
