Re: SLT or DSLR?
In reply to Kim Flowers, Feb 3, 2013

I have a Canon 550D, which is a very good dSLR. However, the high ISO performance can be tricky, and I am really really pushing it now. I do get good results in dim lighting, but it is borderline. I have looked at the Sony SLT, and they do look very interesting. Some say that due to lag sports photography is not possible. Others say you only need to adjust to the way EVF works, and sport/action is no problem at all. What I have learned is that most problems can be overcome with adjusting my technique, therefore I dont think the EVF is any problem.

What I dont like, what I have seen so far, is the poor (ok, "poor") high ISO capabilities compared to dSLR. The translucent mirror really does steal some light, and to me that is an issue when it comes to upgrading later on.

As for now my perfect camera would be a FF DSLR with all the Sony SLT gadgetry and innovation. Some day...
