Nikon DSLR vs compact DSLR cameras?
Posted 04 March 2013 - 10:13 AM
Looks like the image quality of a D5100 will be so much better, but the portability of a compact dslr is so appealing to me.
Mostly I want to take pictures of my kids, usually indoors in low-light situations, but would love to take it on outings as well.
Are the J1 cameras just toys? Do half of the proceeds go to ashton kutcher?
Help me decide plz.

Smaller cameras = smaller sensors = less low light ability

your need to photograph titties from a mile away is getting out of control.
This is the first job we just did with it... pretty impressed with it.
This is 1200' AGL

that's really cool.
Yeah, we love it so far. Now if we can just keep the plane in the air... Tis currently broken. Instrument failure and those scared ass pilots don't want to fly it. Pussies.

Personally, after looking at the price of the D5100 and J1, I would check out the new Sony NEX-3N or Panasonic GX1. (The GX1 is dirt cheap through Amazon Warehouse.) For outings and kids, I would go with the smaller camera. Sony makes APSC sensors for the D5100, so you should be getting same or better image quality. Panasonic/Olympus have the best lens line-up in the compact industry if you're looking to add something beyond the kit lens. My favorite is the 20mm for speed, quality and size.
Though, if you're not too picky with getting the latest gear and want to save some money, I would take a look at the Panasonic GF3. You can grab them all day under $200 with a kit lens' or $300 with the power zoom. The extra money can go towards lenses like the 20mm and whatnot.
