Your Guide To Buying a Digital Slr Camera

By Nicole Blanckenberg

    Offering a lot more function and variety than other digital cameras, there is no doubt, DSLRs take photography to the next level. As they grow in popularity, so does the number of available options, and choosing can be tricky. To help you to easily pick just the right camera for you, whether you are starting a photography hobby or are looking for equipment for a newly set up studio, we have put together this DSLR camera buying guide to get you clicking in no time.

    Choose a camera type based on your intended use of your camera. Cameras can be divided into a few main types: point-and-shoot (or digital) cameras, action cameras, compact system cameras (CSC), SLR cameras, instant cameras, and finally DSLR cameras. Each of these types offer a variety of options and functions to suite a host of needs. To make it easier for you, here are a list of camera types (and their uses) for you to compare:

    Point-and-Shoot/Digital Cameras: These cameras come in many models and whether you are a beginner or a professional, there is a digital camera to suit any budget.

    • Standard Digital Cameras: These are small, compact cameras that can easily fit into a pocket. Offering much better picture quality than a smartphone, they are a convenient choice to capture moments wherever you go. Standard cameras are an ideal choice for beginners or DSLR owners who are looking for a compact companion to their professional cameras, and are great for casual events, family holidays, and every day photos.
    • Waterproof Digital Cameras: Looking for a camera to capture your next snorkeling trip or to take with you on a beach vacation without having to be super protective? Then a waterproof camera is just what you are looking for. Their exterior build is normally designed to handle several feet of water and can easily handle the elements out of the water.
    • Shockproof/freezeproof Digital Cameras: These cameras can withstand the toughest elements, from extreme weather to muddy mountain terrain, and are designed to be able to handle accidental drops and freezing temperatures. These are an excellent choice for the adventurer who is looking to capture extreme moments.
    • Low-Light Digital Cameras: These speciality cameras are designed to capture clear images in low light settings. With bigger image sensors, larger pixel sizes, and larger apertures, these are perfect for indoor pictures without needing a flash. Because they are more sensitive to light, they work well on overcast days, during dusk, at dawn, and indoors - just what a real estate agent may be looking for!
    • Long-zoom Digital Cameras: These are cameras with an optical zoom of 10X or higher. The bigger the optical zoom is, the further away you can stand without losing picture quality and detail. These make for good travel cameras where you will be seeing sights that you can’t get close to, and their secure grip, fast shooting speeds, and quick response will make sure you never miss your shot.
    • Premium Digital Cameras: Often including manual functions, these top of the line digital cameras offer many more functions, including larger apertures and the ability to shoot in RAW format for better photo editing. They also offer a host of add on options such as external flashes and lens adapters, allowing for much more creativity, and they are the perfect choice for photography enthusiasts.


    Trail Cameras: Trail or game cameras are placed on trails to offer wilderness lovers and hunters a unique view of game in their natural habitat. Usually activated by movement, these cameras are designed to automatically take snapshots or videos of game quickly and quietly.

    Action Cameras: With rugged, durable extras, action cameras can be mounted on bikes, helmets, and even surfboards. They can withstand the elements and almost any action activity while still bringing awesome quality shots and videos. A good choice for the adrenaline junkie or activity lover who wants to capture every adventure.

    Compact System Cameras (CSC): Offering new technology, these modern cameras are often referred to as mirrorless cameras. They offer the function of full DSLR cameras in a small, compact digital camera size. The main difference between CSCs and premium digitals is that CSCs offer interchangeable lenses and therefore provide users with the full functions that a DSLR would. An ideal choice for professional photographers and serious hobbyists who want the full photography experience, in a smaller, more convenient size.

    DSLR (Digital SLR) Cameras: DSLRs are for photography enthusiasts, hobbyists, and professionals, or beginners who are ready to take their photography to the next level. With the best specs, technology, and lens options, they are versatile and professional with full manual functions. Offering the best image quality, there are a host of models from entry level to professional to suit any budget and experience.

    Instant/Polaroid Cameras: Instant cameras, after many years, are still a fun and popular camera choice. Using Polaroid film, pictures taken are instantly printed and developed by the photographer. A popular choice for homemade camera booths and functions like weddings or bar mitzvahs, these cameras allow you to give your guests a memory keepsake instantaneously.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their cool new stuff:

    1. AF Performance: DSLR cameras that review well are models that offer quick, accurate autofocusing, which allows shooters to quickly get the shots they want, in any setting. AF performance is key to ensuring that you don’t miss important shots because of slow performance or get badly focused photos in the the process.
    2. Build: DSLRs tend to be much heavier and bulkier than other camera types. But models that offer a slightly lighter build without comprising on quality are crowd pleasers. Another important reviewing point of a DSLR camera build is the grip. A camera that is the size you need and offers a comfortable grip will make regular shooting more comfortable.
    3. Accessories: Reviewers are a lot more satisfied with purchases that come with accessories such as camera bags and extra batteries, as they feel this is a big savings on initial accessory outlays. Included camera bags that can fit the camera and two or more lenses are particularly favored, as this gives owners room to grow without having to buy a bigger camera bag.
    • The first thing to consider when choosing your DSLR camera is what the main purpose of your camera will be. Is it for travel, macro photography, or studio work? For travel, you may want a smaller build than a bigger professional full frame DSLR, while for photojournalism you will need a substantial camera with a good telephoto lens. Thinking of the uses will also help you decide on which accessories you will need.
    • Does size matter? Smaller, more compact DSLR cameras will be better suited for active hobbyist who need something more lightweight. Larger DSLRs have more options and better variability and flexibility.
    • A lot of DSLR manufacturers allow buyers to purchase extended warranties for their cameras. DSLRs are an investment and should last for years, but an extended warranty will give you extra security.
    • When choosing your DSLR, it is important to consider the costs and availability of accessories. As you grow your hobby and your skills improve, you will want to add to things like extra lenses, spare batteries, memory cards, filters, bigger camera bags, and tripods to your photography kit.
    • If you already have camera gear from an older SLR camera, choosing a DSLR that is compatible will save you hundreds of dollars on initial accessory buying.
    • To choose the right resolution for you, consider what you will be doing with the photos once you have taken them. For larger prints and posters, a higher megapixel number (8mp or more) will be a necessity. For online imaging for emailing friends and family, a high megapixel count isn’t as important.
    • Fixed lens DSLRs are perfect for travel, while interchangeable, intermediate DSLRs will offer you more options to upgrade as you grow your skill level. Chose a build that meets your needs.
    • DSLR camera image stabilization varies from model to model, and comes in three main types: optical, sensor, or digital. Optical stabilization is technology built into the lens and is the most efficient choice. Sensor stabilization is built into the sensor itself, allowing for image stabilization even when an added lens is not optically stabilized. Digital stabilization changes the actual image taken to reduce blur that might be caused by camera shake and is normally found on entry level DSLRs.
    • TwoDSLR camera features to compare across models are maximum shutter speed, for fast or action photography, and good ISO ratings for flash-free photography in low light conditions. Choose a camera that offers the optimum settings needed for the photography you wish to pursue.
    • Added features that will give you more function and control are:
      • Anti Shake: This function goes beyond image stabilization to help get you the perfect shot.
      • Dust Protection: This function will help keep your sensors clean.
      • Burst Mode: Burst mode allows photographers to shoot a burst of photos quickly by holding down the shutter button.
      • Wireless Enables: This function will allow you to download photos to your computer or to print images wirelessly.
    • DSLR cameras come with a variety of viewfinder mechanism options. Optical pentamirror viewfinders use a three mirror structure to show viewers the image coming through the lens, and are the most common in entry level camera. Optical pentaprism viewfinders, which use a five sided prism, offer brighter images. And digital viewfinders project video feeds of images without using a mirror or prism.
