SLR Cameras

The single-lens reflex (SLR) is a type of camera that uses a movable mirror placed between the lens and the film to project the image seen through the lens to a matte focusing screen. Most SLRs use a roof pentaprism or pentamirror to observe the image via an eyepiece, but there are also other finder arrangements, such as the waist-level finder or porro prisms.

Since the technology became widespread in the 1970s, SLRs have become the main type of camera used by dedicated amateur photographers and professionals. Large format SLR cameras were first built in the early years of the 20th century but were not very popular. Nikon, Canon, and Yashica introduced their first SLRs in 1959; the Nikon F was the camera that switched professional photographers to the 35 mm SLR. It was highly modular, extremely well-built and versatile, and began the F series that continues to the present day.

Canon, Nikon, Pentax and Minolta have all introduced commercially successful digital SLR ranges compatible with their film SLR systems (though Konica-Minolta recently sold its SLR camera division to Sony who will continue manufacture), while Olympus has introduced a new digital-only SLR system, the Four Thirds system.
