Digital SLRs (dSLRs) are fantastic cameras. If you want the opportunity to take great photos and high-def movies, you can’t beat the combination of power, flexibility, growth potential, and “accessorize-ability” of a dSLR.
I find its versatility breathtaking. With a dSLR, you can take photos (and movies!) of people, plants, animals, planes; action shots, still lifes, close-ups, far-aways, and everything in between. Much of this is due to the fact that the lenses are interchangeable. If you want to shoot distant objects on safari in Africa, get yourself a telephoto lens. If you’d rather photograph weddings and receptions, find a good prime lens. If you want to take great landscapes while on vacation, invest in a wide-angle zoom lens.
The sky is the limit. Deciding what to do and how to spend your time and money is up to you. I hope to help you along your journey into dSLR photography by showing what it’s all about.
