View Full Version : 10 Reasons to Buy a DSLR Camera

11-08-2006, 02:25 AM
Although there are still really good reasons not go with a DSLR camera, such as size, expense and complexity, there are some really good reasons to go with one as well.

Found this article that lists 10 reasons why someone may consider a DSLR camera over a regular digital point and shoot camera.


Hopefully it's useful for those still trying to decide. :)

Great link, Ziggy. I'll toss a link to this in the stickied camera thread.

Good find!

Agreed, good link!

As if I didn't need anymore convincing :-)

very interesting. read the comments some are quite humorous for those who know a lot about photography and why some things work on a dslr and not on a point and shoot.

Ok- Thanks for pointing that out. I had a humorous read. I hadn't even noticed the comments link before. I love when people choose to post evidence all over the internet that exposes their ignorance.

Now I'm not sure if I like the comments more than the article itself, for pure entertainment value, lol.

It's ironic. I've always had an SLR (dslr or regular SLR). And now, I'm in the market for a P&S, because sometimes, there are times when I just do not want to carry around a DSLR.

I used to always have my small Pentax camera with me all the time, but I gave it to my parents a few years back. I don't live with them and certainly been in countless situations where I wish I had it with me.

I hate lugging around my SLR and equipment because it's heavy and annoying. But for the creativity potential, that makes it so worth it.

I want lower noise level. I really hat noise in photos.

That's definately a good reason to consider getting a dSLR. ;)

Until you change your camera, you may want to consider a software approach to noise removal. Noise Ninja is one of many choices out there. I think you can try the software, with limited function, with a free download from the company's website before you buy.

Oh thanks, I will try that out.

Not a problem. I purchased the professional bundle. If you would like to see any examples of what noise ninja can do, feel free to let me know, I will run any images you have through it; that way you can see how it cleans images up after you have experience using it.
