Like the 35mm film cameras, digital SLR cameras are divided into two separate components: the camera body itself, and the target. The latter is an interchangeable device independent of the camera, designed to fill a need the user's scope or coverage angle, or special requirements such as distortion (fisheye) or changing the focus plane (tilt-shift) among others. The target contains, in general, a mechanism for the regulation of light (diaphragm) and a focusing mechanism. The body of the camera contains a mirror, located 45 ° to the plane of the image, whose function is to deflect the rays onto a translucent screen (focusing screen) mate to visualize and focus the image. Usually the light is reflected back to a pentaprism situated above the focusing screen, whose function is to divert the image to the observer and straighten it, since the projected target of upside. At the time of the shot, the mirror flips up and opens the shutter mechanism, to let the light rays directly into the capture device, which is an image sensor in the case of a digital camera.
