What is a Digital Camera called that has a Flashgun separe to itself?

I am looking into buying a camera for xmas. However do not want one with a built in flash and was wondering what sort of camera would I get that meant you can detach the flash from the camera body and back on again? As there are photographic advantages to doing this that I would not be able to get from one with it just built in?

Administrator answers:

They are called system cameras. This covers any camera with a whole range of lenses and accessories (and for medium and large format – backs) which can be interfaced with the camera.

Most commonly these are the DSLR camera, the majority of DSLRs have a pop up flash built in. With a hot shoe where you can attach a flashgun to it. Flashguns come in two types, non-dedicated flashguns are manual only, and are relatively inexpensive, also rather uncommon now. Most modern flashguns are of the dedicated type, this means they are specific to a certain brand of SLR camera. Therefore a Canon flash can only be used on a Canon camera, and a Nikon flash only with a Nikon camera.

There are also a number of non-system cameras which possess a hot shoe, these are the Canon S5IS, SX10-30, Canon G-series, Panasonic Lumix LX-series, Fujifilm X100. X10, HS10, HS20, S100fs, S200 EXR, IS-1, S9000, and high end Nikon Coolpix P-series.

David asks…

What is the BEST compact camera on the market?

I need a really good compact camera, like exceptionally good. Basically I am selling my DSLR to buy it because I don’t want to haul my gear around everywhere. So I need a compact camera that shoots really good photos, even in auto mode and it has to be able to shoot in RAW.

I have heard good things about the Panasonic LX5 and Leica D-LUX 5 (same thing?) and someone also suggested the Ricoh GDR III . Any others I should be looking at? What would you recommend?

Administrator answers:

And once more people have forgotten the Fujifilm X100. It’s a compact that simply blows everything else out of the water with the exception of the Leica X1, and Sigma DP1 and 2, even then it offers major advances over the competition.

The X100 is an APS-C sensored compact camera, with a fixed 35mm (equiv) f/2 lens, the fastest in it’s class. It has a rangefinder type arrangement capable of manual focus. Truth is only the X100, Leica X1, Sigma DP1 and DP2 can come close to what a SLR is offering.

The LX5, and the Canon G12 are great cameras, but can’t touch the X100 in low light, or ergonomics.

The only thing that counts against the X100 is that it’s being billed at £1000, the same price as a Canon 7D or a Nikon D300s, which really puts it into a small niche, and also the X100 won’t hit the shelves till March.
