Beginning Photography A Digital SLR Could Be for You

By: joel hambit

What a great hobby photography is and it`s open to anyone to enjoy. You may have the most simple of cameras or a sophisticated digital SLR but with either you can take photographs of any object or subject anywhere in the world and display it for all to see.

Whilst most people will take some form of photograph on a regular basis, particularly with the progress that has been made with camera technology on cell phones, not many take their interests further than seasonal or vacation photographs. For those who do, however, a standard compact camera will generally not suffice to meet the lengths to which photographers will want to take their hobby and therefore it is advisable to look for the best SLR camera for beginners, out of the vast array of choices that are available.

When you are looking at using a digital SLR camera for the first time you will have to try and decide on what features will benefit you the most. Although there are strong arguments for both types of camera, it is generally accepted that the digital SLR option is chosen for the greatest advancement in your hobby.

Whilst they may cost more than compact cameras ,digital SLRs allow the photographer to see through the viewfinder as well as view it on the LCD screen which, with very bright conditions can allow you to get shots which would almost be impossible to see with the LCD screen.

Assuming that the digital SLR route is taken, there are a vast number of different options available to choose from. However you no longer need to go to your local photographic retailer to pick your perfect camera as you can see everything that you need to by looking online.

For instance, the actual feel of the camera should be taken into consideration, because the way that an SLR camera feels is a lot different to the feel of a standard compact and for some people it can take a lot of getting used to.

If it is the case that you are finding it difficult to adjust to the different feel of the camera then there are now some new exciting compact system cameras which you might like to try as an interim solution. Similar in appearance to a simple compact camera, they have a similar body and have similarities in regards to the way that a photograph is taken to a standard compact,but with an interchangeable lens providing a fantastic middle ground between a compact and an SLR camera. However it must be noted that the ability to view your subject through a viewfinder will be absent and therefore could be a handicap under bright conditions.
