What problem did the SLR camera solve?
Early SLRs had a problem: the mirror only re-cycled when you wound the film. So while you could frame your shot through the lens, as soon as you took the shot, you lost the viewfinder, winding the film to bring the mirror back down and restore your view.
Which is better SLR or DSLR?
Another point of difference which can help you decide which is better, SLR or DSLR is the shutter speed. SLRs have shutter speed range from 1 second to one-thousandth of a second whereas on the other hand, DSLRs have shorter range of about 1/4000th to 1/8000th of a second.
