Compact Camera Systems: Where do they fit in?

The digital camera market seems to always be changing. It seems like there’s always something new coming out. And that’s a great thing for us photography types!

One of the more recent innovations we’ve seen lately has been the emergence of the Compact System Camera, or CCS. Compact System Cameras, sometimes called or Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras, combine the versatility of a DSLRs interchangeable lens and its larger image sensor (and, therefore, its better quality images) with the smaller size and convenience of a compact camera.

The result is a camera that is considerably smaller than most DSLRs and is very similar to a compact camera in terms of user experience, but returns the image quality of a DSLR.

But, where do CSCs fit in? Do they replace DSLRs or are they just for folks who are looking for an upgrade for their point-and-shoot? Do they take the place of DSLRs or are they more of a middle ground type camera.

Interesting…

Today’s post at IT ProPortal has some thoughts on this:

Compact System Cameras vs DSLRs – can they co-exist?
