DSLR

Digital SLRs (also called DSLRs) are the digital equivalent of the old film SLRs. SLR cameras all have interchangeable lenses, and an optical viewfinder that lets you look through the lens and see exactly what the camera will capture when you take a photo.

Shoot HD video

Only recently have manufacturers started making DSLRs that shoot video. Most new DSLRs shoot 720p or 1080p HD video. Shooting video with a DSLR is usually not as simple/easy as with a regular digital camera, but the results can look incredible, especially with wide aperture lenses.
