Why Use SLR Cameras

Aug 5, 2008
Single Lens Reflex or commonly known as SLR cameras makes use of automatic moving mirror system. This enables photographer to capture exactly a photo or any digital system. You do not need a film when you have this new breed of camera around because the quality of images copied by a film is the same as what is taken by the SLR except it requires no films. This is why most photographers choose this model unit because it is very convenient and cheap. You can retake shots and edit them. This would save you time and money. You can take as many shots as you would like. Compared to cameras that requires a film which is limited to dozens of shots the SLR enables you to store more than a hundred images as long as the memory allows it.

The great thing about SLR is not only limited to its capacity to store more images but also its ability to focus far away images. This feature enables the photographer to capture images like wild animals and distant landscapes. You need not to be in close proximity because it can be focused to fit the images as if you shot it in close range. This is very ideal if you are going out on a safari. Capturing wild animals in their in their natural state certainly adds life on the picture. The raw image is something worth taking. Having to shoot them doing their daily activities for survival is the essence of nature. It provides the photographers the confidence they needed to take the picture. They would no longer worry of being chased by those wild creatures. In this way they could take their time and shoot with such precision.

The SLR also has a feature that enables it to adopt in its surroundings. Unlike compact cameras that requires a substantial amount of lighting. The SLR can be adjusted in lower light conditions even without a flash. In this way it enables a narrower depth field. You can blur the background behind the object you are capturing in order to highlight or make it more prominent. It can also capture moving objects in such high precision. Taking it as if it were slow motion or it can capture it as if you were able to stop the movement of the object you are shooting. Some use multiple automatic shots to enable this kind of precision. This is really beneficial for paparazzi in taking candid moments of their target celebrities.

The SLR still has some disadvantages. One of which is that it weighs heavier and bulkier because of its long lenses. It is also a bit expensive compared to compact cameras because of its intricate designs of the mechanism. It is not an ordinary camera after all. Even though with its drawbacks the SLR is still worth every penny because it provides you the best experience when you are taking pictures. The photographer has no limits when taking shots and it will not be hindered by low lighting and distance.
