dSLR stands for ‘digital single lens reflex’ . This kind of cameras is of a larger size, heavier and more expensive than the compact ones. However, the quality of the pictures is much better than their compact relatives have to offer. dSLR also has a great variety of lenses, better sensors and control over shutter and focus. If you are an experienced photographer you can shoot in raw. Some recent models even allow you to shoot in the water.
These kinds of cameras don’t have a mirror before the sensor which allows us to use multiple lenses. They are quite small and considered to be the best ones for taking pictures underwater.
