The term DSLR is slowly becoming meaningless.
The original "single lens reflex" used a mirror system and prism so you could see through the lens, as opposed to a separate optical viewfinder with parallax concerns.
Today virtually ALL digitals see "through the lens" via the sensor and screen!
So, now, DSLR means more about the speed of the camera, the bursts, etc. and the focusing speed, high ISOs. etc.
(And, of course, some kind of eyepiece missing on these compact cameras.)
Just my thoughts on changing technology and terminology.
