I want to move beyond my simple point & click digital camera. I originally thought "oh! I'll just get an SLR! I always hear great things about those!". Then I realized there are quite a few different types of SLR's! Ack. Where to even begin this decision?

Yeah, SLR actually refers to a type a camera rather than a brand or model. I found a guide to help you get started. Good luck!

I have what's is sometimes called a "third generation" or "mirror-less" camera. My husand says that it's a newer and better technology than the DSLR's. But don't ask me to tell you the technical differences b/c I have NO idea, LOL! I do know that it can shoot a TON of frames per second which is awesome, especially at sporting events. It's also super-light which I love.

Hmm! Mirror-less cameras...I'm intrigued! I'll have to research them a little bit. Had never heard of them before.
