Frequently Asked Questions: The SLR Basics...

What is a film SLR camera?
"SLR" stands for "Single Lens Reflex" and broadly refers to the fact that an angled mirror means that the image projected to the eyepiece is exactly what will be on the film.
The difference between a D-SLR camera and a SLR camera?
DSLR - Digital Single Lens Reflex (digital image only) SLR - Single Lens Reflex (uses film only)
Which is better a digital slr camera or a film slr camera?
The Digital SLR camera, because you won't have to pay soo much money buying new film, where as the digital camera, you jut have to upload your pictures from the memory card onto your computer.
Which one is better in nikon slr camera and canon slr camera?
A Nikon and a Canon are equivalent in quality. The Nikon is significantly more costly than the Canon. Most Nikon buyers would disagree but do some research before you buy. Make sure you compare the specifications between the two, in order to really find out which specific model is better, not just by basing it on what brand. Different models vary specifications, thus by just merely looking for a brand is not enough. There are specific models from Nikon, which has the edge over a specific model from Canon. Just like any gadgets eg Mobile phones. To know more about phones, just click this link


  1. i really want a dslr sooooo bad! i will just have to save up enough to finally get one oneday. great articles here and i will continue to come back for more to read. thankyou

  2. I find it interesting that you should mention those two cameras in particular - Nikon and Canon. I was going to replace my aging Sony Cybershot with a more advanced model and I was actually comparing the two you mentioned. I'm leaning towards the Nikon though. Not only are they a great quality camera but they offer more of the features I want.

  3. Hi! I apologize for not having commented about your subject, but I would like to propose to register a new site that is very similar to Facebook, but it is much nicer and who pays for visits to the most clikuri important for me is very serious. If you want to see Sitta or to register, the link will open in Spanish but you can go right up in any language you want!
    We expect one of my friends on:
    Respectful greetings to all!
