Aaron mentioned that Rockbrook camera is now located only at 168th and Center at the Legacy Shopping Center. He spent a lot of time on Mirror-less Cameras which are now featured at the store. He mentioned that these cameras are lighter weight with a smaller camera size, faster and have more tools than previous cameras. They are fully weather sealed and are now available in full frame. Some have face detection and animal eye detection. He specifically talked about the Nikon Z series and the Canon EOS-R. Either is available in the $1000-1500 price range. He mentioned that new lens mounts are available for these cameras and the lens available for them are very sharp and fast. Both Nikon and Canon have built-in stabilization into the camera body.
