Yes .... The Olympus C-8080. [Spelvin adds] Canon currently has more than 10 models in production that have that feature. All of them have shutter priority as well.

Panasonic (with Leica lenses!) has more than 6 models, in the FZ series.

Sony currently offers the H5, H7, and H9. Fuji has the s8000 fd. Kodak currently has more than 10 models with an aperture priority option. If you choose Kodak, be sure to select a model that has the Schneider-Kreuznach lens. Additional entries: Samsung NV11 and NV20. (Both have a Schneider-Kreuznach lens.) Fujifilm E900. --------------------------------------

Answer Yes, Canon does: - mine is a 'Powershot' A710IS, and Canon makes others as well.Also, as far as I know, they are also the only ones who currently make manual/aperture priority/shutter priority cameras that have VIEWFINDERS as well. Check it out. -------------------------------------------------

Compact cameras are "point and shoot". SLRs usually require more manual input. In compact cameras, the lens is fixed to the camera. In SLRs, the lens is separate that you have to put on.

Yes, newegg.com does have digital cameras for purchase from the following brands: Nikon, Canon and Olympus. They offer both point and shoot cameras as well as digital SLRs. The prices range from around $100 to over $1800.

The 'D' in 'DSLR' stands for 'digital'. Therefore DSLRs are the digital version of SLRs. As for SLRs, the name does not suggest whether the camera is digital or analogue, therefore can the term can be interpreted for analogue or digital DLRs.

The 1950s saw cameras becoming more compact so by the early 60s, the most common cameras used film to take pictures on to a 2 1/4" square negative. Kodak was the company known for low cost cameras and was probably the biggest manufacturer of cameras at the time. 35mm film was also in common use and professional single lens reflex cameras were becoming common. The 35mm SLR of the 60s in fact looked little different to the digital SLRs of today. They were certainly heavier and bulkier than modern SLRs and of course used film rather than digital sensors. Other than size and weight, the general layout of SLRs has changed little over the last 50 years.

Waterproof digital cameras suitable for use in pools or fresh water are available from many major digital camera manufacturers, ranging from simple point-and-click cameras to large digital SLRs. Waterproof cases are also available for many camera models to allow them to be used in salt-water conditions and deep diving scenarios.

SLRs have four major advantages over other cameras: 1. They allow viewing the image through the lens, the same as it will look on film or on the sensor. 2. They use interchangeable lenses, which increases their versatility. Unfortunately, it also makes for more expensive lenses. 3. Digital SLRs have larger sensors, which allows better images for reasons we won't go into here. 4. Digital SLRs have much faster shutter response times than non-SLR cameras, especially when pre-focused. Along with the above, they are usually built to higher standards and tend to last longer.

It's hard to give a simple answer. There are many types of cameras including:Single Use CamerasCompact Lens-Shutter CamerasBridge CamerasRangefindersTwin Lens ReflexSLR (Single Lens Reflex)Digital compacts and SLRs are one category, but film cameras come in many shapes and sizes for a number of different roles, from 8x10 inch view cameras (the size of the sheet film they take) to 110 pocket cameras.

Digital SLRs are great cameras for adding artistic flare and allow creative control over your photographs. Digital SLR cameras have numerous accessories, including lenses, external flashes, battery packs, memory cards, camera straps, lens filters, light meters, and so many more. To get started the essentials are a battery pack, memory card and a lens.

No. The three primary types of Canon lens, and some commentary on compatibility, are below.* Canon FD and FL lenses: These are all manual-focus lenses for manual-focus cameras. FL lenses will work on any FD camera (for example, the famous AE-1 and T70), but FD lenses will probably not work with FL cameras (try it yourself). These lenses will not work properly on EOS cameras, either (including modern digital SLRs); they will not be able to focus to infinity. You can get adapters of varying quality with optical elements that correct for the different flange-to-film distance. Most of these adapters are cheap, useless, and rob light and sharpness; Canon made one for their FD telephotos when the EOS system first came out, but these are hideously expensive. If you don't need to focus beyond a few feet, then you can get adapters without optics which will allow these to be used, with varying degrees of success, on EOS cameras. Some very brave people have physically modified FD lenses, too. You're on your own here.* Canon EF lenses: These were designed for the EOS system, and will not work with FD or FL cameras. Nearly all of these are auto-focus lenses. Any genuine Canon EF (not EF-S -- see below!) lens should work with any Canon EOS camera -- both film and digital SLRs. * Canon EF-S lenses: These are lenses designed specially for Canon's digital SLRs with smaller sensors, such as the Rebel, Rebel XT, and friends. These will not work on 35mm film cameras, because they don't cast an image large enough to cover the whole frame. They'll also be pretty useless on full-frame digital SLRs like the 5D (which have sensors roughly the size of 35mm film). Interestingly, they don't work on the ancient D30 or D60 digital SLRs either, despite these cameras having a cropped (1.6x) sensor. These comments only apply to genuine Canon lenses. Non-camera-brand lenses may introduce compatibility issues of their own. For example, some Sigma zooms will work with EOS film cameras, the D30, and D60, but for some reason decline to work with modern EOS digital SLRs.

The official Vistek website is the best online source to use to look at a buying guide for a digital SLRS. It has an extensive look at Sony camera including megapixels, lens mounting and sensor types.

Polaroids may have been used in the past because of their ability to instantly produce images of evidence, but digital cameras enjoy the same benefit. Unfortunately, not all law enforcement agencies are able to afford newer equipment, or the training which is often required.

None of those 'SLR-like' cameras, including the Fuji, are true SLRs because they do not have true optical viewfinders with mirrors that flip - their viewfinders are electronic. However, most SLR-like digital cameras offer more control than the compact domestic type.

The difference is in what is used to capture the light. In film SLRs, the film exposed to light needs to be chemically processed. In digital SLRs, the sensor detects light and can produce high-quality images instantly and without buying more film.

With the emergence of DSLR in the market, it is almost impossible to find an SLR of any brand these says. Your best bet would be to look at eBay or Craigslist for those used SLRs.

I'm not sure I understand your question. If I do, the conversion from focal length of a digital camera to an equivalent 35mm focal length varies based on the cameras sensor size. These sizes vary by camera model. For most Digital SLRs you multiply the camera's focal length by about 1.6, but the multiplier ranges from 1.5 to 2. The multiplier for simple/consumer non-DSLR cameras is somewhere around 4 times.

All EF series lenses will work on any Canon EOS series SLR, digital or film. EF-S series lenses will NOT work on film SLRS or Full-Frame digital bodies (5D and 1 series). They only work on 10D-60D, 7D, and Digital Rebels with a cropped (APS-C) sensor. FD series lens are not compatible with EOS bodies. There are adapters available, but these are expensive, hard to find, and have numerous drawbacks.

Blink detection, often referred to as the "blinkies" allows the photographer to view highlights within a photograph which have been blown out due to overexposure. On more advanced cameras, like digital SLRs, this detection system helps the photographer to make adjustments in exposure compensation in order to fix the highlights and better expose the photograph.

Yes, the D7000 (and the D90) has fully automatic to fully manual settings. And has most of the features in the more expensive slrs

A camera being SLR does not preclude it's being digital-- you can purchase digital SLR cameras as wel as analog ones. However, in either case, a SLR is going to offer much better control over image focus, as well as the chance for both extremely close up (macro) shots, and long distance shots, given the right lenses. Digital SLRs also tend to have higher quality image sensors than their point and shoot counterparts, resulting in less noisy, higher quality photographs.

Fast autofocus is the most important thing to consider for shooting video. D-SLRs are just starting to get this, and it's critical to shooting good-quality video. Without it, you'll get blurry results. Some cameras now come with continuous autofocus that will follow faces and stay focused on them.

"SLR" stands for "Single Lens Reflex" and broadly refers to the fact that an angled mirror means that the image projected to the eyepiece is exactly what will be on the film. (In other film cameras, the eyepiece is offset and sees a slightly different view to what will be on the film) More popularly, an SLR camera is known as one that involves interchangeable lenses. SLR cameras come in both film and digital versions. Nowadays very few of the major manufacturers still make film SLRs.

Yes. The Minolta Maxxum 7000 uses the Minolta AF mount; lenses for the camera should fit any Minolta auto-focus SLR ever made, as well as Sony's α digital SLRs (A100, A700, A200, and friends). These comments only apply to genuine Minolta lenses; non-Minolta lenses for this camera (such as some Sigma lenses) may have issues working on later cameras, such as the DSLRs mentioned above.
