I've been comparing specs of various digicams, e.g. Kodak P850, P880, Fuji S9000 and Canons Digital Rebels, etc.

I've noticed that the first three are typed as "SLR-like" and the others "SLRs" of "Digital SLRs".

Can anyone explain what the real differences are?? :O:?

Some points:

"SLR like"
- Look like an SLR externally
- does not have an direct optical viewing path through the lens (the viewing finder is equipped with a kind of electronic display, same as the LCD screen, sometimes called EVF=electronic view finder)

"Digital SLR"
- film SLR construction type
- interchangeable lens possibility
- does have an optical direct viewing path through the lens , ie via a prism or a mirror (those with a mirror does not display the scene on the LCD screen while viewing through the vewfinder)
- does a real professional class "clap" sound :G

Another point...

SLR like

More affordable for most people

Digital SLR

Way out of the price range for most people. But dropping in price, so one day will be more commonplace
