There are a lot of people that wonder if getting a Digital SLR Camera is worth it compared just having a Point and Shoot digital camera. Depending on what your boyfriend likes to do, and if taking pictures is a hobby or not, you may decide to invest into a DSLR for him as an Anniversary Gift! Basically in a nutshell, the Point and Shoot digital camera will be for convenience while the Digital SLR Camera will provide performance and high quality images, but it will be a much larger camera so it will certainly lose out on the convenience aspect. The major advantages of getting a DSLR Camera for your boyfriend is that the sensors in the camera will allow him to capture much higher quality images during the day, but especially at night with low light situations. There is also much more control and adaptability with a DSLR that allows your boyfriend to use his gift for much more creative purposes than solely with a Point and Shoot. Two other large features that will swap you towards getting him a DSLR is that he can play with different types of lenses and external flashes. This will allow him to take complete control of how much light he needs for his composition, and what type of focusing and depth of field he wants to use with his pictures. Giving him an Anniversary gift of a new DSLR camera will surely turn him into a much better photographer than before!
