The 'bodsor-concept'
Sep 9, 2012

What a waste of money having to buy a new sensor by throwing a perfectly good camera body away every time. How easy it is to make up a new word for these types of wasteful cameras and use it in every ILC and DSLR forum to denigrate these systems:

  • body + sensor = "bodsor".

All these manufacturers making ILC and DSLR camera bodies with the sensor built in really need to take a good long look at themselves. That sort of poorly thought out design worked fine with film SLRs where the 'sensor' was replaceable in the form of film, but what they're doing now by building them together means not being able to upgrade the sensor/film without buying a whole new body (and LCD screen, battery etc) every time.

Was this 'bodsor' design conceived by a cynical marketing department? If you ever want to upgrade your sensor, you throw a perfectly good body away. It doesnt make sense. It's all a great consumer hoodwink by the ILC and DSLR makers to sell more bodies at full retail every time they update the sensor - many don't even change the body design at all, just put a new more MP sensor in so you basically buy the exact same body again, eg the Nikon D3200 'bodsor' over the D3100 is a prime example.
