Mirrorless Cameras with Touch Screen

Updated on March 3, 2013

Mirrorless cameras with touch screen make controls easy

If you're looking to upgrade from a phone camera to a mirrorless camera, choosing one with a touch screen can make the transition easier.

Mirrorless cameras with touch screen monitors make it easy to control camera functions with familiar phone-like controls for focusing, zooming and changing camera settings. Exactly which functions are controlled by the touch screen may vary by manufacturers, but all of the mirrorless cameras with touch screens offer a streamlined design that has eliminated many of the buttons and dials found on traditional compact cameras or DSLRs. This makes them easy to use.

But don't let the minimalist design and small bodies fool you. Inside you'll find DSLR-sized sensors capable of image quality you can't get in a compact camera or phone camera. Ready to explore? Take a look below at some of the popular touch screen models available now.
