Re: dslr or bridge

i am completely new at this. i know dslr give more creativity, interchangeable lenses etc but are they actually better in image quality. i hear how far bridge (ex: pan FZ150, 200 etc) have come in IQ. want good IQ especially in lower light.

Nearly all "bridge" cameras have small 1/2.3" or 1/2.33" sensors the same size as the typical cheap compact camera. The Fujifilm X-S1 is the only exception among the current crop of bridge cameras with a 2/3" sensor.


The sensors in all SLRs or SLTs are much larger, usally "APS-C".

Sensor size is influential on image quality so a larger sensor usually means better resolution and high ISO (low light) performance.

Mirrorless cameras, with the exception of the Pentax Q and Nikon 1, have sensors like those found in dSLRs.

What are you looking for in a camera?
