DSLR vs Mirrorless – which is better?

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


In the kickoff of season 3, Kai and Lok from DigitalRevTV compare an entry level DSLR – the Nikon D3100 – with a mirrorless camera – the E-P3 to see if there is still a point of having a DSLR.

It looks like the small Olympus PEN E-P3 holds up pretty well against the Nikon, even surpassing it in some categories, and with recent advances in sensor technology, we’d bet that new Olympus cameras, like the new PEN Lite (E-PL5) and PEN Mini (E-PM2), that are equipped with the same sensor as the flagship OM-D E-M5 would do even better.

Two other cameras that we can highly recommend:
1. The Panasonic GX1 with a 14-42 power zoom lens, which you can now get a GREAT DEAL on with the expected launch of the GX2.
2. The new SONY NEX 5R, with it’s powerful SONY sensor and wi-fi capability

while they may be good for sports for budget users since you get high FPS for a low cost, they’ll never be used by pros due to the light loss.

Mirrorless cameras are like the hybrid car of the imaging world. Nobody likes them except for people who want to be “fashionable”

I rather have the narrator speak to the point than those 2 retarded-acting guys
Even Teletubbies would have made more sense.

A little bit “retarded” review. sorry but it looks like that to me.

hilllbilllyjoe says:

entry level I would pick a mirrorless, I get a bit sick of lugging around a bulky camera when im not specifically going to take photo’s, but a mid range DSLR (canon 60d and nikon equivalent) will blow a mirrorless out of the water.

I don’t know how many people whine about the “seriousness” of DRTV’s videos but, I personally like it and enjoy the humor. It keeps bringing me back to DRTV’s videos and has made me subscribe.

Stand a bit away from your subject, and use as much zoom as you can. Then try to focus on your subject.
