Before the ILC was introduced to the world, it is a quite simple decision to decide which camera to use: customer can choose a DSLR for the good image quality and a bigger sensor, while the compact camera can be easier for use. But as the interchangeable lens camera has combined the large sensor, interchangeable lens and the ergonomic design of the compact camera, it fills the gap of the market between the point-and-shoot camera and the professional DSLR, also make it difficult to decide which kind of camera is best for us.
One of the best reasons to buy a ILC is it can give you the option to pleasure yourselves in control settings manual within a budget. These affordable cameras can easily fit a small purse or pocket. They also provide high-quality images than the old compact camera. So if you are annoyed with the limits of the point-and-shoot camera, but still not ready to commit to control a DSLR. A Interchangeable lens camera may just fit your needs.
Best ILCs have to offer the users the best image quality, light weight and rich features, also will give easy access to plenty of created modes so you have control over the end product. The most impressive cameras should offer Wi-Fi capability and HD video capture. Also the environment resistant will also be a pleasure function we like to see in the ILCs. To select your best Interchangeable Lens Camera, there are some things you need to know.
Sensor Type: There are two different sensor types in our Top 10 ILCs, APS-C and Four-Thirds. These two sensor types are all smaller than CMOS or CCD sensors which are more usual to appear in DSLRs. The smaller sensor size makes it possible for smaller and lighter camera bodies and lenses. Compared to the APS-C sensor, the Four-Thirds system is about 30-40% smaller. As the ILC has used the telecentric optical path to replace the old mirror system, which means the light will hit the sensor with a close travelling in the camera, resulting in brighter corners, and improved off-center resolution, particularly on wide angle lenses. Other benefits to have these smaller sensors is that a smaller sensor produces a deeper depth-of-field and can reduce the risk of out-of-focus photos.
Resolution: A higher resolution may gives a bigger files and more details, but for most of the users, we suggest them do not too obsess about 'more is better' . When come up with a larger sensor, you may have to settle down the large files which can eat up your memory cards and coast more power. So we recommend the resolutions around 20 MP will be a good enough for most of the customers.
Viewfinder and LCD: Now most of the ILCs have enable you to compose pictures on the rear screen rather than in a traditional optical viewfinder. So the resolution of the screen is more and more important in your shooting experience. Ensure your screen that is large and bright enough and has at least 460 k dots. And compared to the fixed rear screen, a articulated screen that is able to flip and adjust is useful for composition. and combined with the touch-control functionality will make your photography even easier.
Battery life and Storage: As the ILCs gives up the optical viewfinder, so generally speaking, the battery life per charge is not so pleasure. Most of the ILCs have a battery life about 200 shots per charge. In our Best ILCs the longest battery life is about 400 shots. If you travel to a remote area without access to a power source, purchase a extra battery is necessary. And for the storage, most of these cameras have little or no internal storage, so you need a memory card separately.
Features: A camera equipped with Wi-Fi capabilities will enable you to share your photos on the social websites immediately after shooting. So pay attention to whether the camera can transfer the images directly from itself to the Internet. The flash will be a plus when shooting in a dark condition. Environment resistance will ensure your cameras to resist dust and moisture, and make cameras to perform well in most of the conditions.
