Q: What is the difference between SLR and micro-single? Which is better?
A: Mirrorless and SLR are mainly structural differences. To put it simply, SLR cameras have two viewfinder systems, one is a traditional optical viewfinder system and the other is a more modern electronic viewfinder system; while the mirrorless camera has only one set of electronic viewfinder system. Other things, such as image quality, focus, and control, are actually related to the positioning and design of the machine, and have nothing to do with whether it is a SLR or a mirrorless camera.
For most people, we think mirrorless cameras are more Lightweight, easier to use, and more in line with the camera development trend.
First of all, let’s talk about portability. The mirrorless camera has no SLR camera. That set of independent optical viewfinder and independent focus module, the body can be made lighter and smaller, and it naturally has the advantage of portability, which is obvious to all.
In terms of ease of use, the mirrorless camera uses a sensor The design of direct viewfinder and focus, and the use of a touch screen, the overall design is closer to the “full electronic” design, so it can achieve a simple and direct operating experience similar to a mobile phone camera.
While the SLR camera uses the optical viewfinder system, currently only It can work through the process of “selecting the focus point-pressing the shutter halfway to start focusing-confirming the focus-pressing fully to release the shutter”. Although the whole work process can become very efficient after getting used to it, there is undoubtedly a certain threshold to get started.
Next to the development trend, the first point is ease of use. Throughout the history of camera development, it is always simple to replace trouble: just as SLR replaced rangefinder, auto focus replaced manual focus, which is described in detail in the previous paragraph.
The other is the picture quality. The mirrorless camera has no SLR With the optical framing structure of the camera, the distance from the camera sensor to the bayonet is no longer restricted, and the flange distance is shorter. Therefore, the restriction on lens design is smaller and the ultimate image quality can be higher.
Then there is the continuous shooting of the camera, and the SLR camera is continuously shooting When you need to raise the reflector and release the mechanical shutter, the limit speed of continuous shooting is limited by the mechanical structure, and it is difficult to achieve higher. If you want a faster continuous shooting speed, it is destined to use the electronic structure of the micro-single to bypass the mechanical limitations through the electronic shutter to achieve faster high-speed continuous shooting. The upper limit of this depends only on the camera’s sampling rate. .
Therefore, most of us are entangled in Users who choose “WeChat” are recommended to choose WeChat. On the one hand, mirrorless cameras do have many advantages and better prospects; on the other hand, if you really need a SLR focusing system to complete professional-level shooting of sports, news, ecology, etc., then there is no need to entangle.
