Surely you have read the following acronyms: DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex), It’s easier for you to say “digital reflex camera.” Autofocus on a DSLR provides faster, better quality and better performance compared to other cameras because it tracks movements better.

Why are they still the favorite system of dedicated photographers today?
Let’s first get to know what a reflex camera is, how it works and how this will help you choose your next camera.
When and how?
The reflex system first created in 1861, but the first camera with this system came out in 1884 in England and became the standard system for many decades. Today digital reflex cameras use the same system, only change one thing: light-sensitive material.
In the era of analog photography, a light-sensitive material was used, this material was known as film or “rolls” for the less technical. Today digital photography also uses light-sensitive materials, but now they are small digital sensors that came to replace the film.
Easier, cheaper and more common for everyone, digital photography quickly became the commercial standard, and not only that, now the cameras were in the hand of any carrier. Everyone wanted a camera and they could have it, this happened with compact cameras.
