What is a DSLR Camera?
A digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera is built with an interior mirror that reflects incoming light, drawing it through the lens into a prism or cluster of mirrors that transmits it to the optical viewfinder. This orderly redirection gives you the power to see and shoot right through the lens. Choose a Canon DSLR camera body only and pair the hardware with a variety of accessories like external flashes and vertical battery grips to create a custom photography experience.
Picking lenses for a DSLR
One of the most attractive features of a DSLR camera is the ability to enhance your camera's capture with a variety of interchangeable lenses. If you're a novice photographer, you can save money by purchasing a used Canon DSLR camera and pairing it with a lens that boosts your image quality and speed. Between enhanced pixels and remarkably clear autofocus technology, DSLR cameras offer better performance, even when shooting moving targets. Use lens attachments to adjust the width of your frame or enhance your zoom to capture subjects at a distance. If you prefer mirrorless cameras, check to see if you need a special attachment for your lens. You can find some great device combinations by purchasing a Canon DSLR camera-with-lens kit.
What is a mirrorless camera?
Unlike larger DSLR models, the compact Cano n EOS M mirr orless camera takes a slightly different approach to capture pictures. Sensors transfer the light transferred through the lens to a digital display rather than the reflecting mirrors of the DSLR. It won’t offer the same real-time quick capture, but mirrorless designs allow you to preview and adjust exposure settings to capture the perfect shot.
Do DSLR cameras record video?
Your Canon camera can serve double-duty, thanks to its high-definition (HD) video function. Put the exceptional battery life of DSLRs to good use by taking advantage of the full HD video capture shared by complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) sensor technology. Mirrorless models utilize Canon's Movie Servo AF and STM lenses to quietly shoot smooth video with continuous autofocus. The large APS-C sized sensor creates a shallow depth of field, which delivers cinema-quality videos even in low-light conditions.
