Sure, I own and use one with all that extra money that the Koch Bros leave lying around for the "disappearing middle class."

I'm a wedding photographer and I shoot with a nikon d700 and the d300 as a backup. Wanting to upgrade to the d750 soon!

I have a couple of older Canon SLR cameras, but I have not bought film for them in more than 15+ years

SLR = Single Lens Reflex (film) camera, the DSLR is digital (no film).

A Canon Rebel t3. Although not the top of the line, it gets the job done.

03/20/15 9:55 am

I'm guessing since I don't know what that is I don't own it.

03/20/15 8:07 am

A Minolta maxxum7000 and a canon rebel t5 (I think). Minolta I've had for years. Canon I got on Black Friday and j love having a digital one too!

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!

That's okay, they still count as SLRs as long as they have a single lens, pentaprism and shutter. :)

03/20/15 5:28 am

Nope but it's on my bday wish list.

We have several SLR film cameras that are gathering dust and are destined for the Smithsonian.

I didn't say it was. I meant that's what I own as a camera. I just use it for traveling.

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.

We are hoping we can upgrade the camera soon. We want the nikon 610.

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.

I've never heard of an SLR camera

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.

TomLaney1 Jesus is Lord

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.

sdbrev210 The Pursuit of Happiness
03/20/15 5:13 am

Good explanation, Tom. I'm guessing, though, that those media cameras are digital SLRs with the shutter audio set to "on." DSLRs give better quality photos in a faster and easier to develop medium.

SD- audio shutter! Is that why my Nikon shutter click sounds like a Leica!!!

cornybread The Large Malus Fruit
03/20/15 7:34 am

DSLRs have actual shutters - the sound you hear isn't added audio. They do that with point-and-shoot digital cameras which have a live view function instead of a viewfinder and no shutter.

cornybread The Large Malus Fruit
03/20/15 7:36 am

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.

I would agree corny, esp on the higher end ones.

cornybread The Large Malus Fruit
03/20/15 9:54 am

Wasn't trying to sound rude lol. There are a lot of really nice point-and-shoot digital cameras now that look like DSLRs because of the size of the lens, but unless they have the pentaprism, viewfinder and shutter, they technically aren't.

cornybread The Large Malus Fruit
03/20/15 9:56 am

It IS common practice now to add a shutter noise to such cameras that goes off when you press the capture button (which would be an actual shutter release on an SLR) but if you listen closely or turn it off, you'll hear that the only actual noise

cornybread The Large Malus Fruit
03/20/15 9:57 am

the camera makes is a quiet clicking of the image sensor being activated.

HammeringMan Gods Away On Business
03/20/15 9:57 am

That I agree with. DSLR and SLR are differentiated solely by the Digital Plate versus film back

Good discussion, guys! I used to sell cameras for years to supplement my income from church music. I love the advances in photography since my old Minolta XD-11, which used to be state-of-the-art. :o)

With the right lenses, you can shoot Hollywood quality video with a DSLR. To me, they're better for videos than stills.

I'd like one. But I know I'll likely never use it because it's too bulky and would still use my iPhone.

03/19/15 7:59 pm

Real film SLRs, not the digital variety. I find it amusing that they choose to make the new digital models look like real cameras!

Your trolling, right? You can't be that ignorant.

03/20/15 7:07 pm

No, my SLRs are film, 35mm, cameras, not digital. The new digital SLRs are designed to look like an older 35mm SLR, how is that trolling? Unless you are fishing?

D40 for now, taken some nice shots from Alaska to Costa Rica

03/19/15 7:55 pm

Yep. Try to get out and shoot as often as I can. Big in to rail photography. A bit strange, perhaps, to the average Joe!

Yes on owning the SLR , not so much on using it. It is not a DSLR. Was really nice, now collects dust.

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 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 guess since I have to ask what a SLR camera is the answer must be no.

susanr Colorado
03/19/15 7:11 pm

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.

Are they a lot more expensive? I ask because I'm thinking about buying a better camera than what I have now?

They're somewhat more expensive, GA, but I really don't know how much, currently. I must have bought mine about 10 years ago.

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.

03/19/15 6:22 pm

Got my Nikon D3200, just bought a new 18/300 mm.
