Compact system cameras
Compact system cameras are designed to pack as much technology into a compact casing as possible, whilst being simple to use at the click of a button. The advancement in technology over the last few years means you can get a great camera for a very reasonable price.
The main difference between a compact system camera and the more traditional DSLR camera is that the CSC doesn’t have an internal mirror, which actually makes it easier for manufacturers to add on features because of the way the mechanism works. If you’re a keen photographer then a compact system camera can still give you the flexibility you’ll want, with many coming with changeable lenses if your adventures require.
Price is a big factor when it comes to compact system cameras, ranging from under £300 for a great entry level camera up to over £1000 for the top models. Most impressive is the image quality and number of features you’ll get on the cheaper models. With over 20 megapixels becoming standard, and a whole host of tools to help if you’re wanting to do a ‘point and shoot’ job, compact system cameras make it exceptionally easy to pick up your camera and go.
Whether you’re an experienced photographer looking for your latest bit of kit, or a beginner starting out, the wide range of compact system cameras on offer mean there’s something for people of every budget and every level of experience.
