What’s a DSLR? And how to use it?

Before getting into the usage of a DSLR, let’s see what actually DSLR is and what it does?

In a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) image you see bounces up to the viewfinder. It passes through a focusing screen and a condenser lens, and then reflects off of a prism’s walls to reach your eye. This allows you to see exactly what the lens sees through the viewfinder. Have a look at the image below.

The main differences between a point shoot camera and a DSLR are , the DSLR will have much better photo quality and response, an ability to change lenses like telephoto lenses, wide-angles, fisheyes and many more.
Well… Now a days we even get to try these lenses as an attachment to our mobile phones too;). I have recently bought these lenses and these work amazing.
