A "Real" Camera
I just recently got a Canon 10D digital SLR
The single-lens reflex (SLR) is a type of camera that uses a movable mirror placed between the lens and the film to project the image seen through the lens to a matte focusing screen. Most SLRs use a roof pentaprism or pentamirror to observe the image via an eyepiece. It is a big step up from my HP Photosmart 945. I can now use a wide variety of lenses, flashes and other accessory's.
Thank to Papa Jim who is upgrading I got a great deal on this camera with a 26-100mm and 100-300mm Canon zoom lenses as well as a 1Gb card that stores about 310 6MP pictures. With Canon's anti noise filters pictures are more detailed and crisper than those of a pocket size 6MP camera.
Stay tuned for for some of my first shots taken with my new camera.
