The DSLR Guide: What You Need to Know About Your Camera

A DSLR is a digital single-lens reflex camera and is just one type of digital camera.

DSLR cameras are designed to allow for interchangeable lenses, giving you more scope in the types of photography and output styles you can work for. For example, you would want to use different lenses to shoot landscapes, portraits or product shots. Different lenses will also affect the colour and light within the image, ultimately defining the quality of the final image.

There are different modes available, including Automatic, Manual, Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority. Using Automatic mode gives you the option to simply point and shoot – the camera manages all settings for you. The other modes require you to manually change some or all of the settings to get the shot you are looking for.
