Here it is, only buy a dSLR - here come the masses!!! LOL...
For nearly a decade, digital compact cameras were must-haves for most consumers.
But during the past several years, another type of digital camera has been slowly rising in popularity: the single-lens reflex (SLR) camera, from manufacturers including Nikon, Canon (CAJ: 43.66*, +0.43, +0.99%), Sony (SNE: 29.87*, -0.15, -0.49%) and Olympus. Although bulkier, these cameras produce pictures that more accurately represent what’s in their viewfinders than those that use older technology.
They’re also pricier. For example, Canon’s digital compact cameras start at $110, while the SLRs start at $570.
