System Cameras with EVF – The best among the thousands of euros




Although system cameras still do not have a large market share compared to dslr’s, the number of different system cameras on the market significantly higher. Thus, we count at the time of writing in the PriceWatch 215 dslr different materials, across 333 system cameras .

For the consumer makes it any easier. Especially since there are hardware quite a few differences, so your system camera A difficult to compare with system cameras B. There are a few system cameras with full frame sensors (Sony A7 series), but the vast majority is equipped with an APS-c ( Sony, Canon, Samsung, Fujifilm) or MFT sensor (Olympus and Panasonic). An APS-C sensor is much larger than a MFT sensor and also has a 3: 2 ratio. There are also smaller versions, such as the one “sensor of the Nikon 1 series and the compact camera sensor, the Pentax Q series. Their relatively small sensor size to the respective devices is difficult to compare with other cameras.

CSC overview

What body is concerned, there are also significant differences. True that most system cameras nowadays a tilting screen, there are still models without. The same applies to an electronic viewfinder, the EVF. Slip into the system camera segment only have an LCD screen and no EVF, though that is sometimes a solid extra equipment. An EVF can be very nice to make a composition without distractions and is also ideal when the sun shines brightly.

In this comparison, we have also focused on “compact” system camera with a EVF and a market under a thousand euros, including kit lens. To keep the comparison fair, we only cameras with an APS-c or MFT sensor included and therefore no cameras with a smaller sensor like the Nikon 1 series.

Finally we arrived at the following selection: the Olympus OM-D E-M10, Panasonic GX7, the Samsung NX30 and Sony A6000.
