Is the DSLR Era Fading Away?

You cannot run away from the truth, no matter how hard you try. If you are a professional photographer, you know it better. It was the iPhone responsible for transforming the world of photography. One could leave the DSLR at home, carry along just the iPhone and still return back with a bunch of high quality images. It wasn’t just photography experts, but also camera manufacturers themselves talking on the same lines.

Pro photographers found it hard to do away with their DSLRs. Parents had one hanging down their neck while they were out in the park with their children. With that being said, there was definitely a lot left to talk about DSLRs.

So, what was responsible for the reincarnation? DSLRs have been around the corner for quite a while now? Ask a 5 grader, and he would help you out with a complete explanation of what DSLRs are. Compare the latest DSLRs with the ones available half a decade ago, and the difference is sure to get you by a surprise. Stuffed with some ground-breaking features, these gadgets promise to offer you images just like the way you want them.

Lets have a look at a few DSLRs that in no ways can be compared to mobile phone camera.

Canon EOS 650D:

Canon EOS 650DYou knew this one was coming, didn’t you? The camera features a 18 MP Hybrid CMOS sensor and a 3 inch TFT touch panel. This one can produce images at a 5184 x 3456 pixel resolution. Above all, the Canon EOS 650D is powered by Digic 5 processor, which is much faster than the one found in its predecessor. For sports and wildlife photography, this one turns out to be the right pick.

Nikon D7100:

Nikon D7100In terms of looks, the Nikon D7100 looks a lot like the D7000 but is packed in with a few additional features. Additionally, a 1.3x crop mode and a 51-point autofocus system makes it a lot more competitive. Designed for outdoor shoots, the camera is equipped with weather seals that protect your camera from rough weather conditions. This one surely offers better image quality then that taken by a camera phone

Listed below are ones are Wi-Fi enabled cameras which make uploading your images online much simpler and that too, instantly

Samsung Galaxy Camera:

Samsung Galaxy CameraThe recently launched Samsung Galaxy Camera features a 16.3 MP sensor. Powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, this Camera is loaded with the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS. The camera features a 4.8 inch display and houses a 1650 mAh battery that can easily last for around 7 hours. Interestingly, the camera is wi-fi enabled that lets you instantly upload photos to social networking sites. Other connectivity options include HDMI, Bluetooth 4.0 and 3G support.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX200:

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX200Another cool Wi-Fi enabled camera with an 18 MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and 10x zoom. Adding up to its effectiveness is its capability to reduce blur and camera shake effects. However, Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX200 weighs around 105 grams and is just 17.5mm thick, which makes it one of the lightest and the slimmest models around. Easy to carry along with your mobile phone but promises you with a much better image quality.

No doubt, there are several phones out there that make a good modern day camera, but these are in no ways replacing DSLRs. But, again, don’t expect the most expensive DSLRs to offer you the best images. You got to choose one based on your personal requirement, and this demands a thorough research. Check out the public reviews online before you settle down for a specific camera model. And, if you are too concerned about the future of DSLRs, you better not worry. They are here to stay.
