Buy your mirrorless camera directly from the manufacturer, rather than by trying to find a distributor or third-party retailer.
If I am using a camera that lacks one of the key functionality needed for the DSLRs listed below, please help me out!
Is it really worth spending $1,000 (or more) on a new mirrorless camera – especially if you don’t want to shoot RAW?
The short answer is…no.
Dell’s Inspiron XPS 14 has a 16.1MP APS-C 1.6x crop sensor (16.0 megapixels) with 2,560 x 1,160 pixels available in six colors. That works out to a pixel count of just under 4 million pixels.
That doesn’t sound like much, but the Canon G18, with a much higher resolution 16.3MP sensor (21.3 MP) with four times the pixel count, is available for roughly the same price as the Inspiron 14.
The Nikon D800, with a 12.1MP sensor (13.6 MP) with 5-megapixel pixels on the APS-C sized sensor, is slightly cheaper at around $200 less than the Inspiron 14 for the same amount of pixel count. The Nikon D610 is even cheaper, starting at $160 cheaper.
The Sony A6000 and a new Nikon D300 offer the same pixel count and sensor size, but both require a huge additional cost in accessories and a lot of extra travel to get to the camera shop.
There are also more compelling cameras like the Sony NEX-7, Canon EOS-1D X, Olympus RENAMON, and a whole bunch of other DSLRs that offer more or less the same capabilities.
Which is better? DSLR or mirrorless?
If by “mirrorless” you mean an auto-focus system that is not built in to the camera, mirrorless is the way to go.
If by “Dslr” you mean a mirrorless camera that’s a bit heavier and more challenging to get into, mirrorless is the way to go.
If by “mirrorless” you mean the camera has a large LCD screen, like the Sony a6000 or the Nikon D30, mirrorless is the way to go.
