This is a group dedicated to compact system cameras. (CSC, MILC, EVIL, Dave or whatever you want to call them.) Examples would be Micro four thirds, Sony Nex, Samsung NX, etc.

Wikipedia entry on M.I.L.C. cameras.

Group Description

Canon M, Nikon 1, Panasonic and Olympus m4/3 system, Sony Nex and the Samsung NX-series.

There seems to be no standard for this type of mirrorless camera. Here is a list of possible names from a DPReview poll...

Interchangeable Lens Compact
Compact System Camera (yay!)
Digital Single Lens Micro
Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera
Micro System Camera
Single Lens Electronic

Others I like ...

Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens (This groups previous name.)
Electronic Viewfinder (EVF)
Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Format

It looks like MILC is winning that poll (and it has a wiki page) but I've rarely seen that name used in the wild. So CSC for now. Plus I like their Bicycle Team.

If you want to cite someone for using a CSC camera feel free to add the following code.

If you have a better slogan let me know. I spent all of about 30 seconds on that one.
