  1. These are super great. But now criticism is kicking in: I would like the flower picture if it were brighter. That way, to me, it represents the bright, healthy beauty of nature.

  2. @lizheartshakespeare – A DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera. Back in the days of film cameras there were two types of camera viewfinders. A twin lens system which you often see on small point and shoot cameras. This is where the viewfinder is above the lens that’s actually taking the picture. The problem with this is that you aren’t seeing exactly what the film is seeing.

    SLR’s changed that. They used a single lense with a mirror tilted 45 degrees that reflected light into a pentaprism and out a viewfinder. When you press the shuter button the mirror flips up and the light goes stright through the lens to the film.

    Digital cameras don’t really need this anymore because the sensor is electronic and can show you the exact image you”ll get on the LCD screen in the back. So DSLR’s are really more of a hybrid of old and new. But the benefit is that DSLR’s have bigger sensors (which means better lower lower and shallow focusing) as well as interchangable lenses, and more controls.
