Best Mirrorless Camera for Travel: Fuji X-T1 | Kate McCulley

This spring, I made a big decision that more and more travel photographers are making: I decided to switch from a DSLR to a mirrorless camera. In other words, I said farewell to the Nikon D5100 that I had been using for two years in favor of the Fuji X-T1, a mirrorless model. And I could not be happier about it! DSLRs are the big professional cameras with lenses that you see pro photographers and serious amateurs use. They have mirrors in their bodies — the light enters the camera, reflects off a mirror, and hits the sensor. By contrast, mirrorless cameras omit the mirror. For that reason, they’re much smaller and lighter, yet they provide a similar quality. All of the photos you’re about to see in this post, excluding the selfie of me with the camera at the top, were taken with my Fuji X-T1.
