A digital camera captures images through electronic sensors called "pixels", which each are sensitive to light. Put enough pixels together, stand back and it looks like a picture. Electronic images are then stored as data on electronic media such as disks or flash memory; a digital camera refers only to the way the image is captured and stored. On the contrary, a non-digital or film camera uses a roll of light-sensitive film contained within the camera to capture an image. "SLR" stands for "Single Lense Reflex", meaning that the operator looks OPTICALLY through the same lense as the camera when taking the picture. Many older cameras had a lens for the operator to look through and a separate lense for the camera. There was a problem with paralax, focus, lense length and image composition. SLR camras solved those problems by providing a system of mirrors, which allowed the user to focus and compose his image properly. When the operator of a SLR camra pushed the shutter release, the mirror moved out of the way and the shutter exposed the film. SLR cameras also allow the operator to change lenses allowing for long shots with telephoto lenses, wide angle shots, ultra-wide angle shots and even mounting to Astronomy quality telescopes. The same method is used in some high-end digital cameras, often called DSLM, or Digital Single Lens Mirrorless cameras, because of their lack of a mirror.
