Digital Single Lens Reflex (Digital SLR or DSLR) cameras use a mechanical system to allow the image coming through the lens to also be viewed through the camera's viewfinder. This class of camera is the primary digital type used by professionals and are usually compatible with the lenses used on older Film SLR cameras.

Look in Clarkevision's site for his explaination and plans for a barn door mount that can keep in register for about 8 minutes. It's just a hinge offset from the camera body so it moves exactly counte …

My Canon DSLR camera bodies are made with glass filled plastic over aluminum skeleton. What is glass filled plastic? It doesn't have the same cheap feeling as common plastic items. I've seen knife …

There's no universal answer. Cameras are different, with differing resolutions, pixel pitch, and noise performance. A newer camera can trump a bigger camera. Does the bigger one have bigger pixels, …

If the back screen tilts up, you can use it from above too. I note that the old fashioned LCD on the top screen is readable in sunlight. It uses a backlight to read in the dark, but is read using am …
