Best Cheap Mirrorless Cameras in the Philippines (30K PHP and below)

by | Nov 28, 2017 | Cameras

Like it or don’t, mirrorless cameras are here to stay. And if you’re a bona fide shutterbug, you probably already own one too.

These enfant terrible machines are as capable as their bulkier DSLR counterparts: they can be equipped with interchangeable lenses, have robust hardware features, and can take incredible photos and footage. Thanks to their smaller frame, mirrorless cameras are fast becoming the weapons-of-choice of many travel photographers, bloggers, and vloggers.

What’s more, they are significantly less expensive than a traditional DSLR camera. And by “less expensive” we mean north of the 50k PHP range. Seeing, however, that we’re all cheapos here, the Typist Tech team put together a list of the best cheap mirrorless cameras worth 30k Pesos and below.
