DSLE = New term kids! Single Lens Electronic
Feb 22, 2010

If you think about it, everything is expected to "point and shoot". While I wouldn't want a camera without manual controls, multiple, fast automatic functions COMBINE; to form an unbeatable combination. IS, AE, AF, Intelligent ISO, and Exposure (D-lighting etc). What does pointing and shooting, and doing it very well, have to do with whether a camera has a flipping mirror, or not?

Micro 4/3rds and other new, larger sensor (APC) super cams have the capacity to match the IQ (which noise floor, is only a part) of DLSR's such as the D90's DX system and Canon's EOS system sensors. New developments with fast, contrast AF, such as with the Panasonic GH1 and GF1 have opened the door, to some real competition.

Yet, "EVIL" cams, for a name, just doesn't cut the mustard. New competitive cameras such as there are DSLE's. SLE for short. Thus distinguishing there primary attributes of not only seeing threw the lens; but representing live, an electronic view including focus, exposure, DOF, shutter preview and all manner of possible overlays; including live histograms before you've even taken the picture. Still cameras where HD video, with AF/AE, quality sound, and zoom, is no longer an after thought.

Enter the DSLE. It's not a bridge. It's a destination. Previous small sensor cameras, will be just that.

In this manner, either DSLR or new DSLE may also be a "system" camera or it may be an all-in-one lens, with comprehensive (wide to tele) zoom range.

While some (who just bought them) say full frame sensors are our future, and they will certainly be in the future, sooner or later, the difference is IQ coming from 4/3rds and especially APC sized sensors will be largely insignificant. Eventually, even the noise advantage seen on today's FF sensors will be marginal. FF cameras are too limited at the longer focal lengths; when it comes to size. Once we have pro quality IQ and fast acting cameras, that are small, we will all enjoy more scene snapping opportunities, and at a lower price!
