As long as you use a lightweight lens like the 15-45 kit lens or other small lenses, you don't need to use a tripod rated for DSLRs. A tiny pocket tripod will hold the weight just fine.
If you plan to put your camera on the end of a pole, the low weight also makes that easier.
The typical wide neck strap is also not a necessity. I keep a small cord loop on each side of the camera. Then on the right side I attach a longer loop to use as a hand strap and make sure I don't dro
DSLRs and many modern film SLRs are made for auto-focus.
There's no focussing screen when you look through the optical viewfinder, because the designers assumed that if the camera does auto-focus then the user will want to use it most of the time and have a clearer view through the viewfinder.
On DSLRs that only do manual focussing, then there is usually some kind of focussing assist that makes it easy to see when focus is right.
These days, mirrorless cameras in general h
The dynamic range is much better than any other camera I ever had. That's because I don't buy a new camera very often and before the M3 I used an 1100D. So for me the improvement is really significant.
I see a clearly wider dynamic range and the colours are also improved. Without knowing exactly what is the technical improvement about the colour, I can just say that there is a very noticeable change in how the camera handles dull overcast skies. Now grass and trees stay a vi
Cameras without a reversible screen force you to stay behind them. Or maybe they force you to buy an external monitor, an HDMI cable and a hot shoe adapter.
I don't think camera companies are designing cameras without a reversible screen because they think you don't need it. They know it's valuable for many buyers. I think the reason so many cameras are being designed with screens that don't articulate all the way to the front is because there's always something in the way.
