A SLR camera is a camera in which the viewfinder sees directly through the lens via a mirror.

Most point and shoot cameras have an additional lens that you look through which is offset from the lens that takes the picture. This means the photographer sees a slightly different image than the camera records.

A film SLR records the image on negatives rather than in a digital format.

I think that you want to know the difference between a SLR and a DSLR.EOS means Electro-Optical System and SLR means Single-Lens Reflex.Canon has both film and digital EOS cameras, but only film SLR cameras. The main difference between SLR and DSLR is the way the support on wich the light is imprinted: film for SLR and electronic sensor- memory card on DSLR.

"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.

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

The Canon EF won't work on a film SLR, unfortunately. It only works on DSLR cameras.

DSLR - Digital Single Lens Reflex (digital image only) SLR - Single Lens Reflex (uses film only)

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!

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.

The single-lens reflex (SLR) camera uses an automatic moving mirror system which permits the photographer to see exactly what will be captured by the film or digital imaging system, as opposed to non-SLR cameras where the view through the viewfinder could be significantly different from what was captured on film.

no it is a DSLR a SLR is a Single Lens Reflex camrea that acceps film and a DSLR is a Digital Single Lens Reflex camrea that is digital

SLR digital photography is the process by which the film devleops the pictures. It is printed out as a single lens rather than a gloosy photograph type.

No, film single lens reflex (SLR) cameras exist, albeit obsolete. Currently all commercial single lens reflex cameras are digital, however, it may be possible to find a retailer or more likely, a private seller in possession of a functional film SLR camera.

The difference between a single lens reflex (SLR) and a digital lens reflex (DSLR) is simply that the SLR saves an image to film, while the DSLR saves an image to a memory card.

No, 600 film is much larger than Captiva film.

Slr cameras have great lens versatility, better performance than prosumer digicam and film cameras, and better shooting flexibility. They also have virtually no per shot cost as opposed to film cameras.

Exactly what its name says: It winds the film back into the cassette so you can take it out for processing.

Any good camera shop - or online.

SLR stands for single lens reflex. Simply put in a slr camera digital or film when you look through the view finder you are viewing the exact same image as what will be captured. This is accomplished by a set of mirrors and prisms.

It is an SLR camera in the sense that it uses the same mechanism for capturing a picture, but instead of film, there's an electronic sensor that the image is recorded on. Instead of exposed film, you get image files that you can then use for whatever purpose you require.

The Captiva camera film has been discontinued, but you can still track down the dwindling supply for sale on Ebay and the like. The film is called Captiva 95 or 500 film.

The SLR is a fast car and so is the Zonda. It is proven that the SLR is faster

The Captiva uses a film pack that has batteries to power the camera and the flash.

No. You can't use it on Canon's autofocus film cameras either.

what does SLR stand for on camers

"Single Lens Reflex". It means (among other things) that what you see looking through the viewfinder is what will be on the film.
