DPReview just posted the first in an ongoing series of short videos aimed at the novice photographer. In this first segment hosts Jordan and Mark compare the results from a smartphone and an entry-level digital SLR in everyday shooting conditions such as low light, moving subjects and the challenge of capturing a flattering informal portrait. In future spots the video guides will be covering more practical shooting advice and diving into creative techniques in an effort to help beginners choose the right gear.
So you've decided to invest in a digital SLR, but the huge range of models and technical jargon are confusing you? This article will take the pain out of choosing the perfect digital SLR for you, whether you're a seasoned shooter or a total novice.
