So you finally decided to take the plunge and buy a “proper” camera, a camera that even a professional photographer would be proud of. Well, DSLR cameras have been the equipment of choice for professionals for quite a number of years now and thanks to improvements in technology which has brought the manufacturing costs down, these cameras are freely available to everyone. DSLR stands for Digital Single Lens Reflex, which basically means that light travels through a single lens and a mirror is used to reflect some of that light through the view finder, which shows the user exactly what the image will be. So what makes a DSLR better than any other hand-held camera? Here are some reasons why: noise cancelling kopfhörer
Flexibility. Unlike most point and shoot cameras, DSLR’s are built to be adaptable. There are a myriad of different lenses, flashes and filters to suit any zoom requirement or light condition. Most point and shoot cameras rely on digital zoom which is nowhere near the quality of a DSLR’s optical zoom, due to the lens size.
Image Quality. DSLR’s tend to have larger image sensors which allows for larger pixel sizes. More pixels results in photos that are less grainy, especially when blown up.
HD Video. Nearly all modern DSLR cameras can take high definition (1080p) videos. So there is no need to buy a separate video recorder, you have everything you need in one device.
High Quality Optics. Although there are differences in quality of DSLR lenses, in general a DSLR lens is better than the lenses found on fixed lens digital cameras. The large amount of glass in the bigger DSLR lens improves the quality of the lens.
Speed. DSLR’s are built to be much faster than fixed lens digital cameras mainly because they are targeted at professionals who demand this. They are faster in three areas; shutter speed, focus and on start-up.
ISO Range. DSLR’s have a higher range of ISO which allows you to shoot in a variety of different light conditions. ISO is the level of sensitivity of a camera to available light, the higher the ISO the higher the camera’s sensitivity to light is and vice versa.
Retain Value. DSLR’s retain their value for longer than point and shoot cameras do. This is mainly due to the technology inside the camera and due to the fact that the mounts for lenses and flashed are pretty standardised so accessories are interchangeable.
Picture Modes. DSLR cameras allow you easily switch between modes with the manual controls. DSLR’s are also built to handle more of these modes for different conditions.
Longer Battery Life. DSLR’s have a longer battery life than digital point and shoot cameras as long as the LCD screen is off. DSLR’s were designed to be used with the viewfinder to take pictures, whereas a point and shoot camera often requires the LCD at the back to show you what picture is being taken.
