DSLR vs. Mirrorless: Are bigger cameras better?

Does size really matter? Samsung sought to answer this question by mounting a Samsung NX300 compact camera next to the same camera encased in the body of a fake, larger DSLR camera. They then asked unsuspecting people on the street to compare images taken with the two cameras (which were actually identical).

Want to see how it went? Watch the experiment:

Before being let in on the fake camera, the participants in the experiment described the images taken with the larger camera as more professional and brighter. This follows the theory that the average person assumes bigger cameras take higher quality images. However, increasingly sophisticated technology is putting that theory to the test. Some compact cameras are now competing with DSLRs.

Featured in the experiment, Samsung’s NX300 is a mirrorless, 20.3 megapixel compact camera with interchangeable lenses and an APS-C CMOS sensor. It’s capable of continuous shooting and utilizes a hybrid autofocus system. What’s more, the camera has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. Its images can be shared instantly with the touch of a button. The NX300 is just one of many new cameras on the market that are changing the way we think about camera size and quality.

Will mirrorless systems soon replace DSLRs? The topic is certainly open for debate among photographers. But in the end, only time will tell.
