MIRRORLESS CAMERAS FOR THE ASPIRING PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

I recommend only making this type of purchase if the receiver has already let you know which one is their favorite! If you want to gift someone a professional camera but it’s just out of budget then I recommend giving them a gift card to rent a camera for a few days at your local camera store or an online website like Lens Rentals. I definitely recommend getting a mirrorless camera though over a DSLR. Mirrorless cameras are what most photographers are upgrading their systems too and a lot of brands have stopped making DSLR products. You can also get used items from reputable websites like KEH photo.
