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.

Yes you can use a SLR lens as an attachment on some digital camera. You will have to check the camera to see if there is an attachment that is available on the camera.

My opinion is the digital slr camera because you won't have to pay soo much money buying new film, where as the digital camera, you jut have to upload your pictures from the memory card onto your computer, and you can just reuse it again and again!

SLR stands for Single Lens Reflex - if it doesnt say digital then its probably a film camera (35mm).

No, Unless the SLR camera is Olympus it will not work because Olympus lenses sue 4/3rd lenses and will not fit on any other camera

SLR digital cameras are professional grade cameras which have settings which may be manipulated to produce outstanding photos that otherwise could not be achieved with a regular digital camera

You would have to use a Minolta SLR digital camera with a Minolta lens. However, don't automatically assume an old Minolta lens will work on a digital camera. You need to determine whether the digital camera accepts interchangeable lenses and whether it accepts the specific Minolta SLR lens and mount you have. There is no real generic answer to this question.

A digital SLR is an excellent camera, but it has a lot of options that might be confusing to amateur photographers. If you are not comfortable with those options, a better choice might be a digital point and shoot camera.
