digital SLR

Single Lens Reflex

A camera design that allows the user to view directly through the lens for more accurate framing and composition. The design also makes it easy to change lenses if you want to use a specialty lens. These specialty lenses are larger so the overall cameras tend to be heavier. These digital cameras are more expensive and as an added benefit, they typically do not have a long lag time between shots.
