Digital Single-Lens Re_ex cameras (DSLRs) are typically the biggest and most expensive digital cameras on the market, but for good reason because they also offer the most functionality. The bulkier size is a result of the mirror system contained inside, which bounces the image recorded by the lens up to an optical view finder so that you can see exactly what you’re photographing. DSLRs also have larger sensors for taking high-quality photos, but some are larger than others. Nikon’s FX-format cameras contain full-frame sensors, which are approximately the same size as the 35mm used in _lm cameras. They are designed to offer superior image quality with better sensitivity in low-light situations, but they also cause the camera to be much bigger and more expensive. Alternatively, Nikon’s DX-format cameras contain slightly…

Compact system cameras (CSCs) are the newest breed of camera, introduced as a more portablesolution to bulky interchangeable lens cameras. Like DSLRs, they feature manual controls and arelatively large sensor, but they do not contain a mirror system, hence why they are sometimes knownas mirrorless cameras. Instead, the light travels straight down the lens to the image sensor, so there isno option to have an optical viewfinder; just an electrical one that displays a digital representation ofthe scene. Most CSCs feature smaller cropped sensors because they are so compact in size. Because this type of camera is quite new, there are not as many lens options available as there are for DSLRs.However, as their popularity grows, so does the lens line-up, and the Nikon 1 range of CSCs already hasa…

Bridge cameras tend to be a little larger than compacts due to their impressive _xed lens that can usually stretch great distances to cover a large focal range. This is why these cameras are often also known as superzooms and is what makes them a great option for taking on holiday, because you can photograph a range of di_erent scenes, from wide-angle landscapes to close-ups of distant action, without having to pack a variety of heavy lenses. So although bridge cameras can be quite bulky, they are still compact as a camera system because you only have one lens to worry about and it typically retracts into the camera body when not in use. Superzooms also usually feature manualcontrols, making them a great upgrade from asimple point and shoot compact, or…
