Never before have cameras been so common and prevalent in society as they are now. Leading camera manufacturers are always competing to come out with better and innovative products, leading to an abundance of affordable digital cameras in the marketplace. Not only are the “point and shoot” type of cameras reasonably priced, but now we are starting to see incredibly Cheap SLR Cameras. Digital SLR cameras are the ones usually only affordable to professional photographers, but now are available to everyone at fabulous prices.
SLR stands for Single-Lens Reflex, meaning it uses a mechanical mirror system to refract light from the lens to the optical viewfinder (what you see on the back of the camera). Unlike traditional digital cameras, there is no delay between the time you push the button to take a photograph and when the photograph is actually taken. You can adjust shutter speed for action shots, which reduces any blur the photo may otherwise have.
Another added feature of SLRs is that many models allow you to change lenses to fit the type of photographs you are shooting. Whether it is sports, still life, long range, or studio quality type pictures you are after, you’re sure to find the right lens for the job.
Megapixels are important if you want to make large prints of your photographs to limit distortion, but not necessarily important in terms of overall quality of a photo. SLRs are known for their amazing quality and detail in the photos they produce, regardless of megapixel count. Check out all the amazing SLRs available today.
