DSLRs price range in price from some quite affordable deals at the lower end to extremely hh prices at the professional end. Make a realistic list of the type of photography you will use it for (note I said ‘realistic’ – it’s easy to dream of all kinds of things you’ll photograph – but in reality most of us only do half what we think we will). Size – DSLRs are all more sizeable than compact point and shoot cameras but there is a fair bit of variation in size between them also. DSLR Cameras are increasingly becoming a type of camera that is in the reach of the average photographer as prices fall and as manufacturers develop more user friendly models. Before I tackle how to buy a DSLR keep in mind that DSLRs are not for everyone.
