    proved him wrong already :o
     
  4. I have the 828. It's borderline, but obviously P&S because you can't change lenses, they have electronic eye pieces, and you can use the LCD to take pics. I think those are the only thing holding a 828 from being a SLR

    do you mean, if you can take snapshots with the Sony F707/717/818 ?.... the 818 is really fast so no problem with kids and dogs....but the 707 and 717 are slithly slower...

  10. :rolleyes: obviously you've never used one, it's not ordinary p&s. read the rest of the post you quoted :slap: I never said that it was a slr.

    If sony had a professional digital camera the 828 would be it. Well now there's the R1 but I don't know anything about that.

    but does the mirror flip? no?? well then its not an slr, not even close... :p

    you see, slr does not mean manual settings, nor does it mean changable lenses or even high quality.

    A SLR by defination will need to have a mirror to "reflect" the image to your optical viewfinder.

    The 828 might look like one, feel like one (nice zoom ring, metal body...etc.), it's not even close to being a SLR.

    The Olympus E10/E20 are more interesting, they still ain't SLR but they do have optical viewfinder. Olympus used a split prism.

    The new Olympus E330 on the other hand, while having both LCD and optical viewfinder, is actually a SLR.

    The 828 would've been a great camera if the sensor ain't all that noisy and if the CA is better controlled. The R1is nice, but I'd rather have a entry level DSLR instead.

    No. SLR is an SLR because it is a Single Lens Reflex camera.
    Which means both film/sensor and viewfinder use the same lens to gather light (hence the SL part - Single Lens), and there is a reflex mirror between the lens mount and th film/sensor plane (hence the R - Reflex).
    This is what's holding the F828 from being a DSLR.

    It's called prosumer P&S. It is not borderline.
