The big retro looking Digital Single Reflex Cameras are on the Out.

I bought last year a DSLR camera because I wanted to take better photos than with my small Canon pocket camera. I bought the Nikon D90 and even took a 1-Day course to learn how to use it. One year later my wife still says I take shitty photos. I just do not get the hang of it. The only thing that works ok for me is to make photos with the signature blurry background. I stopped playing around with other options as I do not have the patience for it and I do not want to miss the shot.

I might be wrong, but I think most casual DSLR owners do not use the full potential of their expensive and big camera. The whole trend to bring DSLR from the professional use down to the mainstream was wrong in my opinion. A DSLR camera still has the looks of the analog cameras from yesterday. Why? Because camera makers wanted to make it easy for professional photographers to switch to digital single reflex cameras. I really do not care about all the options I have to adjust on my D90, I just want to make great photos. I also do not want to carry around a big and heavy camera. Now it looks like camera makers are finally turn away from the DSLR technology and bring new innovative cameras that are taking DSLR quality photos. These new Micro Four Thirds cameras are much smaller, lighter and promise to be easier to use.

These new bread of digital cameras include the Samsung NX100 and Sony NEX-5 and NEX-3. The are other Micro Four Thirds cameras like the new Panasonic GH2. GH2 though sticks to the outdated DSLR design. The Olympus Pen line of Micro Four Thirds cameras offers a time less design that keep up with the NX100 and the Sony NEX line.

I suggest leave the DSLR cameras behind you and adopt the new Micro Four Thirds camera generation this Fall. The cost is similar to entry and mid-range DSLR cameras. The Sony NEX-3 sells for instance for $598.99 on Amazon.
