compact camera with DSLR lenses

sony has just announced plans to produce an ultra-compact digital camera with large interchangeable lenses. the new line of cameras aims to combine the small scale portability of standard point and shoots, with image quality and versatility of larger digital SLRs. the new line was just announced at the annual camera show PMA (photo marketing association). the camera uses sony’s own APS-sized exmor HD CMOS sensor and will have the ability to capture HD video. the new camera has a sleek design and will presumably come in a variety of colours.

  • Well i have recently bought a new Sony Alpha DSLR-A550.This Sony Alpha DSLR-A550 generally delivers above average performance for its class and excellent high ISO sensitivity profile relative to competitors.I like its large,tilting LCD and fast Live View autofocus.Sony Alpha DSLR-A550’s good performance and decent noise profile make it attractive for the money.

    BK says:
  • yep, the shutter delay is a good question, they want to do something like Olympus Pen, but in this case it’s a real DSLR.
