Point and shoot no?
im in an stupid arguement. guys claiming its not, i own one.
proved him wrong already
I have the 828. It's borderline, but obviously P&S because you can't change lenses, they have electronic eye pieces, and you can use the LCD to take pics. I think those are the only thing holding a 828 from being a SLR
SLR = Single lens reflex. does it go kaching? - and no, i dont mean from the speaker.
do you mean, if you can take snapshots with the Sony F707/717/818 ?.... the 818 is really fast so no problem with kids and dogs....but the 707 and 717 are slithly slower...
obviously you've never used one, it's not ordinary p&s. read the rest of the post you quoted I never said that it was a slr.
If sony had a professional digital camera the 828 would be it. Well now there's the R1 but I don't know anything about that.
but does the mirror flip? no?? well then its not an slr, not even close...
you see, slr does not mean manual settings, nor does it mean changable lenses or even high quality.
A SLR by defination will need to have a mirror to "reflect" the image to your optical viewfinder.
The 828 might look like one, feel like one (nice zoom ring, metal body...etc.), it's not even close to being a SLR.
The Olympus E10/E20 are more interesting, they still ain't SLR but they do have optical viewfinder. Olympus used a split prism.
The new Olympus E330 on the other hand, while having both LCD and optical viewfinder, is actually a SLR.
The 828 would've been a great camera if the sensor ain't all that noisy and if the CA is better controlled. The R1is nice, but I'd rather have a entry level DSLR instead.
i forgot about this thread.
No. SLR is an SLR because it is a Single Lens Reflex camera.
Which means both film/sensor and viewfinder use the same lens to gather light (hence the SL part - Single Lens), and there is a reflex mirror between the lens mount and th film/sensor plane (hence the R - Reflex).
This is what's holding the F828 from being a DSLR.
It's called prosumer P&S. It is not borderline.
you're right, it's a REALLY noisy one
and your digital rebel is a a consumer DSLR
