Using a single lens reflex camera is something which will give you a much better picture quality. Even in the days before digital cameras, professionals would always use a single lens reflex camera to get a better quality of picture. When digital photography came along, there were not many affordable single lens reflex options and so people had to use the automatic cameras that were out there. However, there are now digital single lens reflex cameras that are affordable. The compact models are easy to use as well and something that an amateur photographer could afford, easily use and get fantastic results from.
There are other advantages of the compact digital camera over larger models as well. Although larger models will be of a better quality, the compact camera can be easier to use and more portable. If you have a photography hobby, it can be great to have something that you can carry around with you all of the time. The single lens reflex will enable you to be able to change lenses and things like that, so you will be able to get the right kit you need which you can have with you on the occasions when you need it. However, it is not always necessary to do this and so you will have something that you can slip in your bag or pocket or even glove box of your car, that you can use whenever you feel the need. The great things about it not being overly expensive is that if you use it a lot and wear it out, damage it or lose it, it will not be so expensive to replace. For something that you will have with you a lot, this can be quite an important consideration. (more…)
