    Is it just me but does Panasonic using the initials DSLM for their EVF mirrorless cameras sound a bit like a feeling of inferiority - the're not DSLR's but if we make them sound similar some of the "mystique" might rub off lol

    Its a DSLR without a mirror, so DSLM seems rather apt to me. and panasonic are not the first to use it.

    It's marketing speak, ennit? I like the Panasonics [I own two], but the term CSC seems to be taking hold - much as they'd like their own alternative term, I suspect it will die a natural death if only because it's clumsy.

    You could say that about virtually any thread on this chatroom, Teepee. But surely the essence of our trivial discussions is that someone, somewhere, might actually be stimulated into thinking about the photography issues of the day. Some may care more than others about any particular topic.

    :No worse than 4/3 or EVF mirrorless etc when what they mean is compact camera. Wink

    DSLM....Smile

    There was me thinking it stood for " Digitally Small Little Mirrorless " Grin

    Keith has it nailed though, A compact is a compact is a compact, Its just that some compacts are not as compact as other compacts, ie: Little compacts & Large compacts, Even Medium compacts.

    Never been a fan of things so small you need a magnifying glass to work them, Never really rated " Little & Large " either, Totally unfunny.....Sad

    Would you class the old OM1 as a compact, it was compact compared to other SLR`s of the period Smile

    CSC`s are DSLR`s without a mirror box.

    I can't remember when the term compact came in. Even when you could get those slippery 110s I can't recall calling them compacts, they were just 110 cameras.

    Maybe I should start calling my little old MJU11 that fits in a tight jean pocket, my full frame camera Smile
