CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - This new category of digital Compact System Cameras with interchangeable lenses was mislabeled for a time as "Mirrorless Cameras" by those forgetting about "Mirrorless" Rangefinder cameras.  Such confusion is easily understandable, since interchangeable rangefinder cameras were only recently introduced in 1932.  hmm.    CSC or Compact System Camera is probably the best category description to date, although I am fond of the old RFF desigation of  CEVIL  indicating Compact Electronic Viewfidner Interchangeable Lens.   This forum is here at RFF because via adapters these cameras offer an inexpensive way to use rangefinder lenses on digital cameras -- in addition of just about every 35mm SLR lens you can think of.  All  offer the photo enthusiast an incredible array of adopted lenses which was not possible before these new digital formats.   This group continues to grow in popularity and new camera models!

OLYMPUS MJU 760 from my Daughter

years ago I won an Olympus MJU 760 compact Digital Camera in a Photo Contest Judged by famous British Photographer David Bailey -- there were over 34,000 entries and the last 45 photos were enlarged, framed and shown in a gallery in London, where the prizes were given out. I gave it to my Daughter -- she has now lost interest as she uses her 'Gadgets' for taking photos and uploads them to 'Snapchat', Instagram', Facebook' and so on, so I have 'taken it Over' and done a few 'Street Photos' with it.
It has XD cards, now discontinued but I have several, 7.1 MP, various set 'scene styles', can do Video but cannot make a decent cup of English Tea--

Mju are special. Mju 300 with its rounded metal body still makes me feeling good when I open it.
