Buyers Guide | Compact System Cameras

For photographers disappointed by the results achieved through a traditional digital compact camera but looking for something smaller that a bulky Digital SLR, then the rapidly expanding range of options available within the world of Compact System Camera (CSC) photography is just for you.

HD Movie Technology
Removal of the traditional mirror and pentaprism found in many DSLR models has created a Compact System Camera sector that is taking the photographic world by storm but which remains true to the requirement recording DSLR-quality images but without the hassle that comes with a big body and lens combination.

3D Sweep Panorama
The growing trend towards 3D technology has found the perfect marriage with Sony’s Sweep Panorama technology allowing you to create breathtaking panoramic images with a huge angle of view and, if you own a 3D TV, these exciting images can be replayed on the big screen.

Compact and Lightweight
A key advantage of the Compact System Camera is the ‘big camera performance’ that it provides housed within a body little bigger than many compact digital cameras. Both thinner and smaller, with associated affects on the weight of the model, Compact System Cameras can be as much as 15% smaller and 20% lighter than their DSLR cousins

System Expansion
Applicable to all Compact System Cameras across Olympus, Sony and Samsung; the growing range of lenses and accessories dedicated to this area of photography only enhances both the possibilities and enjoyment that can be derived from this area of photography
