Ama­jor plus that a dig­i­tal SLR (sin­gle-lens re­flex) cam­era has over the com­pact is its abil­ity to use dif­fer­ent lenses. To­day’s mir­ror­less com­pacts too can be fit­ted with lenses as re­quired by the shoot­ing but there are more op­tions in DSLRS.

The lens—a pho­tog­ra­pher’s third eye— is the sin­gle-most im­por­tant fac­tor in the pic­ture-mak­ing abil­i­ties of a cam­era. All lenses com­prise a sys­tem of op­tics that di­rect the im­age on to the sen­sor (in film cam­eras, on to the film plate). You can use a va­ri­ety of lenses from zooms with shift­ing aper­ture to fixed fo­cal-lengths for dif­fer­ent pho­to­graphic sit­u­a­tions.

One tip: When us­ing zoom, re­strict your­self to a 4X zoom, that is, if you are us­ing, say, a 16-85 mm zoom, the best re­sults will be be­tween 16 mm and 65 mm.
