Thread: Is there a compact DSLR?

  1. #1

    Default Is there a compact DSLR?

    Is there like a compact DSLR around?

    I saw canon G9 but compare to DSLR , it can not take pictures that are not so "flat". And it only has manual functions.

    Is there also a much budget camera? And what is D40 market price right now?

    Sorry for asking so much.

    If the DSLR is too compact, holding it will have problem. Just imagine if u mount a 70-200mm len on it. the weight of the len will give u problem holding the compact DSLR properly.

    2) Nikon D60
    3) E-420
    4) Nikon D40x
    5) Nikon D3 The Machine GuN! No la, just kidding ignore the last one.
