Do you own (and use) an SLR camera?
Your trolling, right? You can't be that ignorant.
I guess since I have to ask what a SLR camera is the answer must be no.
Yes on owning the SLR , not so much on using it. It is not a DSLR. Was really nice, now collects dust.
D40 for now, taken some nice shots from Alaska to Costa Rica
Look it up.
I'm guessing since I don't know what that is I don't own it.
Got my Nikon D3200, just bought a new 18/300 mm.
Single-Lens Reflex. You look through the viewfinder and see through the lens via a 45°-angled mirror behind the lens. When you press the shutter release, the mirror flips up out of the way and allows the light from the lens to hit the frame of film.
My wife does and she is very good at it! She is taking photography classes at school and has had some paying customers already. It is fun to see the work she does.
The most common SLRs use 35mm film (about 1 1/4ish" wide roll of film with sprocket holes along the top and bottom edges for the film-advance mechanism to engage). At a news conference, those loud shutter clicks you hear are often from SLRs.
Well anything fancier and I'd probably break it by accident!
I still have my old Pentax K1000. I have not used it for decades.
SLR = single lens reflex. It's a type of camera that has a mirror & prism system so that you are viewing through the lens, instead of through a separate viewfinder. With the viewfinder, what you see isn't exactly what you get, in the final image.
With the right lenses, you can shoot Hollywood quality video with a DSLR. To me, they're better for videos than stills.
No. I'm using a Sony Nex-5 at the moment. The mirrorless interchangeable seems to be a good compromise for me. Delivers quality photos without quite so much bulk.
I didn't say it was. I meant that's what I own as a camera. I just use it for traveling.
I'm a dork. What is it?
I would agree corny, esp on the higher end ones.
SD- audio shutter! Is that why my Nikon shutter click sounds like a Leica!!!
I have an EOS 600D and am upgrading to a full-frame 5D Mark ii this week.
Canon rebel t1i and and my dad's old AE-1. I love digital but there's something about working with film that's really satisfying (I develop black&white film myself). I have a compact digital too but I love that with an SLR you hear/feel the shutter!
Own, but never use.
That's okay, they still count as SLRs as long as they have a single lens, pentaprism and shutter. :)
I've never heard of an SLR camera
That I agree with. DSLR and SLR are differentiated solely by the Digital Plate versus film back
Me too! X-700 and D3200.
Basically, a DSLR works the exact same way as a 35mm SLR, except the film is replaced with a digital image sensor/digitizer that is fixed right behind the shutter.
Nope but it's on my bday wish list.
So much easier and lighter to hold :-)
Real film SLRs, not the digital variety. I find it amusing that they choose to make the new digital models look like real cameras!
Are they a lot more expensive? I ask because I'm thinking about buying a better camera than what I have now?
We are hoping we can upgrade the camera soon. We want the nikon 610.
I would like to own one and learn to use it, but it hasn't been a top priority.
I have a couple of older Canon SLR cameras, but I have not bought film for them in more than 15+ years
Not so sure about that.
D300, 35mm Nikon (I forget the model), and an old Olympus. I don't shoot with film because it's mostly of my kids. Maybe once I get back into photography I'll shoot 35mm again.
Doing Digital Photography as a college course. It's technically my moms camera, Nikon D80 w/ 18-135mm.
I have a Minolta XD11 but haven't used it in years. I now use a Nikon coolpix S9100 or just use my phone.
Pentax K1000, Mamiya C330 TLR (twin lens reflex) Mamiya RB67. Not counting the digital cameras
Own two, a Nikon f and a Minolta Maxxum 8000i, but haven't used either in a few years. My everyday digital camera is DSLR-like, but isn't, actually, as it uses a digital viewfinder in lieu of an optical reflex mirror.
I have a DSLR. Nikon D300.
Analog, not digital (yet).
One of the nicer Cybershot point-and-shoots. I love it.
Nikon D50 and D5200
I still own an old SLR, but I shoot entirely in DSLR now and have for more than a decade.
I use a DSLR, a Canon EOS Rebel XT. Actually I have 2 identical bodies now with different lenses; I'm trying to troubleshoot a problem & my daughter lent me her older camera to compare.
I used to use an Olympus SLR when I shot film, but I
Sure, I own and use one with all that extra money that the Koch Bros leave lying around for the "disappearing middle class."
