Size matters – the beauty of a small and mighty camera
Size doesn’t matter. No matter how much I want that to be true you can’t help but notice how most consumer electronics companies vie for the position of producing either the thinnest, smallest or biggest in their field.
Now, surely the ideal would be to pack the most tech in to the smallest gadget.
It seems that small and mighty is the way forward.
This becomes apparent when looking at the world of cameras currently available out there. Sure, you could opt for an expensive full-size Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) unit – but most of us would find the new breed of compact system camera (CSC) more than enough.
The main benefit of the CSC over DSLR is that they are smaller and lighter. And because they house a significantly larger sensor than most compacts, image quality is far above that of a point-and-shoot. In many ways they really do offer the best of both worlds.
For example, the NEX 5T fits a mega DSLR-sized 16.1MP APS-C sensor in the confines of a pocket-sized body, ensuring fine details and high contrast images even in low light.
Boasting interchangeable E-mount lenses, the NEX hybrid cameras are able to pack professional quality into a pocketable package.
As well as providing most of the functionality of a full-size DSLR in the body of a compact, the ease of use of a point-and-shoot as well as the flexibility of a larger snapper is there too.
Sony’s vast NEX compact system camera range is certain to have one that suits your needs.
