Optical or electronic viewfinder?

The optical viewfinder is good because it transmits the picture “as is” – without any embellishment, delay, flicker, etc. Since it is just a system of mirrors and lenses, it does not consume electricity, thereby extending the camera’s battery life. On the other hand, the mirror viewfinder has its drawbacks. In most cameras, it has a coverage of not 100% of the frame, but a little less – 95-98%. Because of this, unnecessary objects at the edges of the frame may fall into the frame and you will have to additionally crop the picture, slightly losing its resolution. The mirror viewfinder reflects a minimum of “service” information – shutter speed, aperture, ISO, exposure compensation. It is impossible to make him show, say, a live histogram, white balance or electronic level. Because of this, there is an increased likelihood of a defective image due to an incorrect exposure level, white balance, horizon obstruction. To finally assess the correctness of the settings and framing, you need to take a test shot, tear yourself away from the viewfinder, look at the screen and, in case of an error, make adjustments to the settings. This takes extra time, but with proper experience the number of such takes is minimized. Continue reading

Interchangeable optics or non-replaceable?

Enough words have already been said about matrices and carcasses, now it’s time to talk about an equally important thing – the lens.

The lens is the main element of the camera, no matter how strange it sounds. The image quality by 90% depends on the lens, so it’s worth choosing the device responsibly.

We have already decided that a large matrix is ​​good and a small matrix is ​​bad. Now let’s decide on replaceable and non-replaceable optics. Everything is not so clear here.

As you know, SLRs and system cameras (mirrorless) involve the use of interchangeable optics. But there is another class of cameras on the market – these are “premium compacts”. Unlike ordinary soap dishes, they have 1-inch matrices, that is, they are comparable in size to “cropped” cameras. But unlike SLR and system cameras, these compacts have non-replaceable lenses – quite high-quality, but non-replaceable. Continue reading
