Have a Digital SLR Question That You Can't Find the Answer To?

Hi, my name is Chris Roberts and I'm the owner and operator of the Digital SLR Guide.

Over the years, I have been asked hundreds of questions about Digital SLR Cameras.

I used to reply to each one in turn, but realized that it would benefit more visitors if the answers to your questions could be seen by everyone.

Before you ask your question, please see what others have asked. You may find that someone else has already asked your question (and hopefully I've answered it).

If you don't have a specific question, but would just like to provide me with feedback or input, please use this form instead.

Please realize that your question WILL appear as a new page on this web site and that other visitors will be able to see it. If you do not provide any author information (it's optional) then your question will remain anonymous.

After you submit your question, you'll have the option to be notified when someone comments on it.

Please make sure to complete this since it's the only way that you find out that I have provided an answer to your question.

OK, enough introduction! Let's get started!
