In order to compare the CSC with DSLR we have compiled a table of key parameters for four cameras as follows:
In the table opposite the key differences are highlighted: green for an advantage, red for a disadvantage.
We analysed the weights of a camera body and an f2.8 standard zoom to gauge the difference in how much metal/glass is hanging around your neck. The DSR is more than twice the weight, in the case of the 4/3 Olympus pushing three times. In days of restricted carry-on weight on airlines this can be vitally important, it certainly influences the kind of gear a photographer might take on holiday.
The light weight of the CSC allows no spare room for a large battery and this limits the frame life to less than 400 frames in most cases compared with more than 3,000 for a pro DSLR. The batteries are small though and so tucking a spare in your pocket or gadget bag is not a real problem. An add-on battery pack assists with grip and trebles the battery life to around 1,000 frames.
