Confusion is sure to be present any time a new technology appears in the marketplace. While mirror-less cameras are not exactly new, they are considered a bit of a novelty to those who don’t fully understand them yet.
I have created a short video which helps to clear up some of the confusion about these cameras as well as how the latest manufacturers products stack up against each other.
The cameras in this comparison group include the: Nikon 1 J4, Fujifilm X-A1, Sony NEX-5T and the Samsung NX2000. All four of these Interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras come from very reputable and established companies in the digital camera world.
The main areas of concern that we will focus on include image resolution, CMOS sensor size, viewing monitor screen size, camera flash and ability to add more light via the camera hot shoe, video or movie recording format, video compression codec and the type of record medium used.
Modern technology keeps changing and as such those that review technology such as the latest compact system cameras must try to compare apples to apples. In other words gadgetry and gimmicks should never be allowed to disguise what lies underneath.
Please leave me a comment if you own any of these cameras and let me know if you’re pleased with their performance.
