What traditional single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras lack in portability and convenience, they make up for with flexibility. The truth is, for all but the most specialist applications, SLRs are the first tool in any photographer's toolbox. With the advent of DSLRs, or digital SLRs, these cameras have become even more flexible, and while they don't match point-and-shoots for convenience, they're getting there!
Just having a nice DSLR isn't enough, though. You need the right lens (or lenses) for the job, and you might need some accessories, too, like remote controls and lights and reflectors. There are a lot of products to choose from, especially as far as DSLR camera bodies go. Every year sees the introduction of new models and ranges, and with Canon, Nikon, Sony, and Pentax all fighting for your custom, it can be a little tricky to find the right camera for your needs. Don't just leap in at the high end of the market, either; digital camera technology is advancing so quickly that today's entry-level DSLRs have better specifications than professional cameras from just a few years ago. In many cases, a recent low- or mid-range DSLR will be just as good as a 3-year-old camera that still costs twice as much!
Finally, be careful about over-specializing your camera gear. While it might be immediately cheaper to buy a 300mm telephoto lens to do some sports photography, it will be almost useless for any other kind of photography. Think long and hard before investing in a DSLR camera and lenses — and be certain of what you're buying before you actually get your credit card out.
