Do DSLRs Need to be so SLRish?
Aug 14, 2004

There's probably an obvious answer to these questions, but the obvious has escaped me here.

Why can't cameras with an interchangable 35mm lense system use the same live preview, no-mirror setup prosumer cameras use? I'm guessing at the least you'd lose the optical 88-percentish viewfinder, but also would eliminate mirror vibration and get a 100% electronic viewfinder.

It seems you could also incorporate video without the mirror setup.

Why is the mirror system so important?
