Compact System Digital Cameras - View the Current Range

Compact System Cameras are a cross between a digital camera and a Digital SLR. They offer you similar features to a Digital SLR, but handle more like a digital camera. In terms of size they also fit somewhere between a Digital SLR and a digital camera.

There are plenty of advanced features to get your hands on and you should have access to features like High Definition movies as well as manual exposure controls. A small number of Compact System Cameras have touch control LCD screens.

This type of camera is relatively new and as of yet does not have the same range of compatible accessories available at lower price points that the more established Digital SLRs have.
