    Default "DSLR" in chinese?

    I once walked into a camera shop and asked the auntie in Chinese if they sold DSLRs (shop display crowded, only see PnS everywhere). Then the shopkeeper said to me she doesn't know what a DSLR is. I think she's from Chinese educated background, hence poorer grasp of English. Anyone has any idea what DSLR in Chinese is?

    There is a salesgirl working behind the counter in a camera shop in Peninsula called "Wan Dee Ah Su Ma Ku San".

    She could be yours if the price is right.
