Photography learning activity lately has received considerable attention both from the public.

Acquainted with the Camera
Before choosing a camera that will be used to study photographing, or studying photography, you should know in advance the types of cameras as well as strengths. There are two types of cameras that can be used, the DSLR and compact cameras.
For the new photographer, pocket cameras can be used. However, the SLR or DSLR camera users would not rule out the possibility to re-learn photography to better understand the art of photography.
There are many things to learn in photography.
Almost all DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) are larger than a pocket camera. Pocket cameras are lightweight and easy to carry everywhere, since DSLR camera often heavier and need some space to carry it especially its lens. As the name implies, we can bring pocket camera into our skirt or jeans pocket.
For a beginner who still learning photography, preferably camera used was a pocket camera. In addition to a simple form, a pocket camera is not too “inconvenient” and cheaper than DSLR.
When learning photography, if you use a DSLR camera, a scene that you see will be the same as those caught on camera. Whereas if you use a pocket camera, what you see, not necessarily the same as those caught on camera. This is due to the size of each sensor on a pocket camera are different. Sensors in DSLR camera are larger than the sensors in pocket cameras.
So far, people assume the larger the size of the pixels in the camera, the better picture will be produced.
Actually the one that determines good or bad results from our photo are not photo pixels, but the sensor. The lesson of this sensor becomes important when you begin to learn photography.
By knowing what camera you will use, you can prepare how much money do you need to spend when you want to learn photography seriously. If you need a camera just to take your holiday moment, DSLR are less needed even the result of picture will be better. Pocket camera will be the right choice. But if you want to be professional photographer, of course you will need a DSLR camera with some additional lens.
