what is a dslr?
DSLRs (Digital Single Lens Reflex) are cameras that use a viewfinder to look through a prism, off of a mirror, and through an interchangeable lens at your subject.
Instead of using film, the digital SLR uses an image sensor to capture the photo. DSLRs replaced film SLRs in the 2000s and remain the most common interchangeable lens camera system.
Today, most DSLRs are capable of video capture as well a still photographs, which is a great convenience. The main advantages of a DSLR over a smaller point and shoot camera include a large image sensor and the ability to control the various aspects of image exposure, including – but not limited to – shutter speed, aperture and ISO.order now
