What is a DSLR camera?
DSLR stands for â??Digital Single Lens Reflexâ?. It uses a mirror to reflect the image from the lens to the viewfinder and the sensor behind the mirror captures the image. The larger the sensor, the better your pictures will be in low light conditions. DSLR cameras are mostly used by professional photographers, especially those who cover news, wedding or event, sports, fashion, wildlife and films for high resolution photographs. The other set of people who use DSLR cameras are the serious hobbyists.
DSLR cameras come in different shapes, sizes, colours and price range, but you need to decide which camera will suit you the best. If you are a beginner and want to be a professional photographer, then you will need to learn about the features and functions of a DSLR camera. Before making a final decision of buying a camera you need to consider key camera features like the megapixel, ISO, lens, usability and lots more.
Unlike a compact camera, a DSLR camera will allow you to use a variety of lenses with different focal lengths. A compact camera is likely to have a fixed lens. You can get much higher quality photos with a DSLR camera of similar resolution than a compact camera along with better manual control. One of the advantages of the DSLR is that it can be used in low-light situations and fast action situations or a combination of the two, as well.
