I was looking for just this video, you delivered, great video, thanks.
good and simple show :)
Can you please tell me the best dslr and bridge camera that uses AA
batteries from your experience
DSLR and bridge cameras have big difference in picture quality. I am just
an entry level point and shoot user but can tell the difference between the
two. So I dont like this video for suggesting that those two have similar
I have to say from experience that there is a difference between a bridge
camera and DSLR in terms of picture quality. Apart from the experience of
the photographer there are two main reasons for the quality difference.
Firstly sensor size – typically the sensors in most bridge cameras are
about the size of your little finger nail whereas the sensor in a bridge
camera can be as large as a 35mm photographic film in high end models.
Larger sensors translate to more light hitting the sensor resulting in
brighter more contrasty images. Smaller sensors are exposed to less light
and compensate by charging the sensor in order to boost the light signal
resulting in more noisy images which can also be darker. Also the lenses of
a DSLR while not offering the same range and instant convenience of a
bridge camera make a great deal of difference to image quality – ask
yourself this question: why do professional photographers and even
hobbyists spend hundreds to thousands of pounds on a single lense if the
image quality of a bridge camera is almost as good or as good as that from
a DSLR? As an amateur astronomer who works with telescopes (over 26 years)
I can tell you that the image quality of the optics in my telescopes is far
more important to me than fancy GOTO systems and the size of the scope. The
same is true of cameras. Its not the number of megapixels which is
important unless you want to really enlarge pictures its the size of the
pixels, the quality of the lenses and the luck or talent of the
Which is a better One Nikon P520 or D3100
I can see a differences between the two. DSLR give much better detail and
My cousin Paddy bought a bridge camera recently… next week he’s hoping to
buy one that just takes boats!
I would more than love to buy a digital slr…I just can’t afford to spend
a few hundred on each lens.
actually the dslr will give better picture quality and a more shallow depth
of field (out of focus background) this is gained by having a much larger
sensor as well meaning the pixels are bigger and get more light.
Bridge cameras have nice zoom ranges. Main advantage. DSLRs have much
better low noise and image quality.
great review, you helped persuade my dad to get me a dslr, good job!
Helped me out with some questions I had. Thanks for the video.
Excellent effort in putting aside the myths about both camera types. I used
strictly slr’s in the film days but now own an sx30 canon and find worth
every penny, the camera actually suprises me at times. Thx for good job
the DSLR seems to have a lot better quality in turns of crispness and
color. that’s the one thing that really stood out to me.
screw lenses they cost to much
nice advice Thanks you helped me alot by simplifying the differences
between the cameras. its A BRIDGE camera for me
Well explained,,cheers mate it has helped me decide.
Yes. You can definitely see the clarity and correct colouring from the
DSLR. Lenses help a great deal in showing-off the camera’s capabilities.
Thanks for the comment.
I agree which is why I am looking into a DSLR, also you have more options
with a DSLR.
u did ell. am looking into amateur photography and ur vid helped
