Welcome to TOPDSLRS.COM

Photography is an art, and like any art it is a personal experience we sometimes like to share with others. Cameras allow us to freeze a moment in time and capture the environment around us, a couple embracing, an interesting building architecture, or a very tiny jumping spider. The most important aspect of photography is the joy it brings us, the camera is merely a tool, it is up to the photographer to frame the subject and capture it at an interesting moment.

When reviewing a DSLR camera, we encourage you to share with us your experience during the photo shoot, a trip to the park, or a sports event. Whether you are beginner or a highly experienced photographer we are interested in reading your comments and share it with others in the photography community. Whether you own an 10 year old DSLR, or a brand new state of the art we’d like to hear from you.

Of course there is the film development cycle, the lack of instant gratification and cost of print, we will discuss the pros and cons and help you decide whether you should consider film photography, if not as a replacement to digital photography, at least as a second hobby, as you will see the experience of film photography is entirely different than that of its digital cousin..

Choosing the right lens
As I was surfing the web and reading forum submissions, I stumbled across someone who was ready (and eager) to start his lens collection and needed recommendations, and what was more surprising is the responses by other forum members with recommendations to buy this lens and that lens, not a single person pointed out the obvious, that photography isn’t about collecting lenses, but apparently there are many people out there who find it a hobby to buy and collect lenses, if you are one of those people then I would encourage you to read further, this is for you..
