About Us

Mirrorless Comparison was created by us, Mathieu Gasquet and Heather Broster, when we decided to upgrade the comparison section of our first publication, mirrorlessons.com, into an independent website solely focused on putting photography gear head to head.

About Mathieu Gasquet

I am the editor of Mirrorless Comparison and the person responsible for conducting all camera tests. I have had a deep passion for photography since a very young age and have worked as a professional photographer for over 15 years.

Prior to transitioning to my current role and establishing my own independent publication, I worked as an event photographer in Italy, notably for the National Cinema Museum in Turin. I also co-managed my own video production studio with two former colleagues and collaborated with various Italian advertising agencies, partnering with prominent brands such as Alfa Romeo, Sky, Maserati, and more.

Furthermore, I pursued a three-year course in cinema and obtained my degree in cinematography at the A.R.F.I.S. school in Lyon, France.

A few more facts about me:

  • I am half French / half Italian but I love a good British cuppa. (And a Welsh beer!)
  • My love for photography was born when my parents gave me a Yashica FX-2000. (Sadly I broke it a few months later.)
  • I’m a huge cinema buff. I used to spend my weekends watching 3-4 movies in a row. I also have a great love for TV dramas, but nothing can quite replace that magical feeling of watching a good film on the silver screen.

About Heather Broster

I’ve been an enthusiastic photographer since the age of 14. My favorite genre is macro photography, and I love capturing people at events. Additionally, my passion for instant cameras motivated me to create a dedicated website, Instant Camera Blog (fun fact: my very first camera was a Polaroid).

A few more facts about me:

  • I’ve had the fortune of living in Canada, Japan, England, Italy and Wales. Wanderlust, anyone?
  • I am a budding lepidopterist. Can’t find me? Look for me in a meadow chasing after butterflies with my camera!
  • I am crazy about the Italian language, linguistics and bilingualism and I recently started learning Welsh. Don’t get me talking about languages because I’ll never stop!

About Mirrorless Comparison

Back in 2010, when mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras were a nascent technology, there weren’t nearly as many models to choose between as there are today. You could either go the Micro Four Thirds route by choosing one of the rudimentary models from Panasonic or Olympus, or turn your attention to the limited APS-C selection from Sony or Samsung.

Since then, the number of mirrorless cameras has exploded…but so has the confusion surrounding them.

There are now a half a dozen sensor sizes: (Micro Four Thirds, APS-C, Full-Frame and Medium Format), multiple brands including Panasonic, OM System (formerly Olympus), Sony, Fujifilm, Sigma, Nikon, Canon, Leica and Hasselblad, many of which have very similar characteristics.

If you’re scratching your head right now, we don’t blame you!

And this is what brings us to Mirrorless Comparison. On this website, our aim is to compare the latest mirrorless cameras and lenses, not inside a lab but rather using the best testing ground there is: the world around us! 🙂


In addition to complete comparisons between the mirrorless cameras and lenses we are able to keep for an extended period of time, you’ll also find:

  • articles that compare specific features or characteristics
  • comparison “previews” that give you the nitty-gritty on how two new models differ ahead of our full comparison

We look forward to embarking on this new journey with you!

Mathieu and Heather
