Thread: RangeFinder and SLR Cameras. Which is good?

    Default RangeFinder and SLR Cameras. Which is good?

    Just wondering...
    A digital Range Finder camera better or a digital SLR camera? What are their difference in terms of photo quality. Are the lenses in Range Finder better? Seems like the price are about the same right? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    you're talking about 2 very different beasties.

    in capable hands, both can produce equally excellent pictures.

    some people like the RF for it's light weight, whisper quiet operation and ease of use. whereas there are those who prefer the slr for it's wide range of lenses, accessories and versitality.

    it really depends on personal taste, both in equipment and photo subjects.

    and remember your equipment is only as good as your skill.

    Digital rangefinder vs Digital SLR?

    No difference. Both digital. Most rangefinders are fixed lenses, most SLRs are separable. But if you're talking digital, then there is no real difference anymore as opposed to traditional film RF vs film SLR, when the mechanical movement, size, weight and viewfinder operation means 2 completely different kinds of cat.

    Just get whichever you're more comfortable with. The SLRs will give you the option of getting different lenses with different ranges, while the digital rangefinders are usually consumer models.

    I was itch for the Panasonic Leica DMC LC1 but then Nikon and Canon DSLR cost almost the same. But the lens of the Panasonic Leica is sweet! And the body build looks vintage! That's why I'm caught in-between to get a range finder or a DSLR.

    Hmmm, is SeaGull doing any ranger finder digital camera?

    Neither one is better or worse. It just is.

    A mechanical SLR and rangefinder is very different. However, I'm not sure how much of that difference is brought over into the digital realm.

    LC1 sensor still smaller than DSLR. BUT both can print out equally good 4R-8R prints.

    IMHO, get one that you like to use and keep shooting!
