System camera guide

A small camera with great possibilities is the system camera , it can be transported by their compact design excellent. System cameras are similar in size to superzoom models, but their image sensors are much larger: this increases image quality. The advantages of reflex cameraare added, namely many settings, interchangeable lenses and many accessories.

What are the differences between system camera or DSLR?

The image sensor, which is considered a crucial factor in image quality, is similar in both cameras. The manufacturers usually rely on APS-C sensors or the Micro-Four-Thirds system. Large full-format sensors are impressive with their picture quality, but these are almost only to be found in the expensive professional SLR cameras. One exception for the system cameras is Sony’s Alpha 7 series. The picture quality differs between system camera and DSLR hardly, even if many professional photographers still swear by the DSLR. Although there are differences especially in the price ranges, but the system cameras have practically caught up. With the lenses and other accessories, the SLRs still score with a slightly greater variety, but now can be synonymous with system cameras thanks to exchangeable bayonet lenses for all motives assemble, for example Wide-angle lenswith low distortion (useful in architectural photos) or the bright telephoto lensfor portraits. About adapter rings can now quite a few SLR lenses to the system camera be screwed on. With Nikon and Canon even autofocus works this way. Other accessories would be, for example, viewfinder and flash. Especially the viewfinder bring many system cameras from the outset, they have a display. Some photographers, however, swear by the viewfinder, because it offers an absolutely unadulterated image, while the display can cause the sun’s rays as well as wrong color values ​​deceptions. On the other hand, there are perspectives that only work with a display: in the case of over-head posture, for example, or when the camera is photographed from the ground. In addition, the display shows all picture settings. Autofocus, on the other hand, is used to automatically focus on a subject. The slow speed of Autofokus`bei the system camera has long been a disadvantage, but modern system cameras have now installed the cheaper contrast autofocus. Although it is still slower than the phase autofocus of a SLR camera, but the latest models such as the Sony Alpha 5100 faster: Sharpness and subsequent triggering takes only 0.14 seconds. The technology works great with videos and now better than with a DSLR. Finally, during transport, the system camera is clearly superior; without a mirror it is smaller and lighter.

Purchase of a system camera: sensor format decides

A large, very light-sensitive sensor leads to low-noise images. There are the following formats for sensors that are important for the purchase decision:

– Full format (for example Sony models of the Alpha 7 series, Leica M / M9 / M monochrome / M-E)
– APS-C format as Canon, Fujifilm, Leica T, Pentax and various Samsung and Sony models
– Four-Thirds / Micro Four Thirds format like Olympus and Panasonic
– CX (Nikon, Samsung NX mini)

In unfavorable lighting conditions, large sensors always have their advantages. Smaller sensors, however, allow a much more compact design. The resolution of system cameras can be between 10 and 24 MP, there are also models like the Sony Alpha 7R II with 42 MP.

Good system cameras

– The Samsung NX30 system camera is a cheap powerhouse, it is surprisingly small, but especially with 370 grams wonderfully light. The Android operating system is not used in contrast to other cameras from Samsung, the NX30 uses the classic camera control. For image search, users can use a display or pull-out electronic viewfinder. A built-in APS-C sensor provides a resolution of 20 MP, WLAN and NFC brings the camera.

– The Sony Alpha 7 II delivers as a system camera a full format, because the corresponding sensor was installed, which can absorb extremely much light. The resolution reaches 24 MP, the autofocus reacts very fast, the serial tempo can be seen with 5 fps. The built-in image stabilizer is suitable for taking pictures with fixed focal length.
