A bit unfair! I have a very nice little Halina 500. Pressed steel top and base plates, auto, 40mm/f2.8 lens, hot shoe and weighs nearly as much as my 30D.

'Halina Happiness' is more near the mark! Wink

Well as a Nikon user I am delighted, but I think it is of interest to everyone even if they are not Nikon enthusiasts as so many of us are. In other words, I love it.

We're still waiting for Canon Country, Sony Society, Pentax People and Olympus Outfit! Not to mention Fuji Folk, Pansonic Populace and the (very tiny) Leica Land.

So when are we getting them?? tongue-light.jpg greengrin-light.jpg

What is the pro and cons of these mirrorless versions?

Keep hearing about them but can't find anything specific about them.

The main advantage of a mirrorless camera is that it has no mirror and can, therefore be made smaller, quieter and with less vibration. Disadvantage is that you can't have a reflex optical viewfinder.

Without wanting to start an argument, there has been some discussion about the vibration caused by the shutter in mirrorless cameras. This, I believe, is because instead of the DSLR cycle:
- raise mirror
- open shutter
- close shutter
- return mirror
the standard mirrorless cycle is:
- close shutter
- open shutter
- close shutter
- open shutter
so the vibration caused by raising the mirror is replaced by the vibration caused by opening the shutter (presuming it is a focal plane shutter). This can be a greater or lesser problem depending on the type of shutter, use of 'electronic shutter' etc. but whereas there may be a mirror lock-up function on a DSLR getting round the vibration problem on mirrorless cameras would require a different approach.

Anyway, have a read of this and see what you think:
Shutter Shock

Hi Pete
Just found this old query with no reply.
Your assumption is not quite accurate in that with a conventional DSLR shutter opening and closing vibration follows mirror up vibration.
While shutter up is usually the biggest cause of vibration many DSLR cameras have a facility for mirror up or shutter opening delay which can be used at shutter speeds where vibration is likely to be an issue.
The effect of the shutter starting to close has a negligible or nil effect on image sharpness.
The smaller the sensor the smaller the shutter curtains are, so less weight and less vibration. For the same viewfinder angle of view I find DX has slightly less camera shake than FX. My P7700 compact seems to have even less vibration, though as far as I know it does not have a focal plane shutter.
