01 bridge Cam­eras

These cam­eras ‘bridge’ the gap be­tween a point-and-shoot and a DSLR. They have a fixed lens, with a pow­er­ful zoom, and many of the man­ual con­trols of a DSLR, though they are geared to­wards au­to­matic and semi-au­to­matic shoot­ing.

02 dslr Cam­eras

The dig­i­tal evo­lu­tion of tra­di­tional SLR film cam­eras, DSLRS use a phys­i­cal mir­ror and pen­taprism to com­pose and cap­ture pho­to­graphs. They possess large sen­sors for the best image qual­ity and en­able you to change the lens.

03 mir­ror­less Cam­eras

Fore­go­ing the mir­ror mech­a­nism, these cam­eras are much smaller and lighter. Un­like DSLRS, the elec­tronic viewfinder or LCD shows ex­actly how your image will ex­pose. It’s pre­dicted that mir­ror­less cam­eras will ul­ti­mately re­place DSLRS.
