4:3 and Micro 4:3

An industry standard set by Olympus and Kodak for DSLR cameras, the four thirds system allows users to interchange lenses and other parts from different DSLR manufacturers. Recently Olympus and Panasonic have introduced micro four thirds cameras, a smaller version of typical four thirds cameras, which has a reduced amount of internal components but has the same great qualities and output.

Micro four thirds cameras are really exciting for their potential. This segment will undoubtedly grow over the next couple of years as many individuals trade down from bulkier DSLR's and trade up from point and shoots.

DSLR

DSLR is the acronym for Digital Single-Lens Reflex camera. DSLR cameras use a series of mirrors to display light that comes throught the camera's lens into the eye of the photographer through a viewfinder in the back of the camera. DSLR cameras are popular amongst photographers for the ability to use interchangeable lenses for various photographic needs. The most popular manufacturers of DSLR cameras are Canon and Nikon though many traditionally electronic manufacturers have entered the market like Samsung and Sony.
