Single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras are more complex than any other type of cameras. Viewfinders of other camera types are quite simple systems and usually have nothing to do with the main lens of the camera. In basic cases the viewfinder is just a rectangular-shaped hole and in more complex cases the viewfinder is somehow connected to the main lens for focusing purposes (twin-lens reflex (TLR) cameras for example), but still these systems are simpler than SLR cameras. So, how does a SLR camera work or what makes it so complex?
This is my second disposable camera. After the first one I thought I didn’t want to have anything to do with them anymore, however, I got this one for free, almost, so I figured I’ll take some shots and later on see, what it’s built. (2 videos)
A picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes just pictures are not enough, so here are some quotes about photos and photography.
