If that wasnt a joke, the abbreviation means Digital Single Lens Reflex (camera). Pro-level, basically.

What Lucky said. Correct me if I'm wrong Lucky (I'm just an enthusiast, not even a hobbyist :p) but the benefit is that the viewfinder uses the actual lens view instead of a seperate view. So when you're framing a shot it's much easier to focus on your target and see what the actual picture you're taking will be like. So far the biggest annoyance I've had with non-SLR cameras is that you have no real idea what the picture looks like until after you've taken it.

DSLR cameras also have other nice features like much much faster auto-focus, less shutter-lag, etc... They also cost as much as a decent computer. I already have several annoyingly expensive obessions (such as home theater, computers and car/portable audio), I don't need another. :)
