5) Automatic Focus and Image Stabilization

DSLR cameras come with autofocus option. A number of autofocus modes are available depending on the model. Though the camera focuses on the object in the centre of the frame, many DSLRs allow changing the focus point. In that case, a switch is provided to move between Manual Focus and Autofocus (M/A).

If the ordinary camera is not held steady, the image blurs. This error is reduced in the DSLR with the Image Stabilisation technique. There are two types of Image Stabilizations:
* In-body Image Stabilization-
Image sensor is moved to counteract the sensed motion of the camera. It works for all lenses mounted on DSLR.

* In-lens Image Stabilization-
It is implemented in the lens itself to counteract the sensed motion of the camera. You will have to buy Image Stabilization lens separately.

6) Maintenance of a DSLR
