Best DSLR Cameras (For Pros & Enthusiasts)
If you’re a professional photographer or intend to be one, you’ll know that a Digital Single Lens-Reflex Camera (DSLR) is the way to go. The DSLR combines the optics and the mechanisms of a single-lens reflex camera with a digital imaging sensor.
Why go DSLR? For many reasons, but let’s list just four here (in laymen’s terms):
- Image Quality. The DSLRs allow for larger pixel sizes and faster shutter speed.
- ISO Range. The DSLR’s larger ISO range (the image sensor’s sensitivity) allows greater shooting flexibility.
- Manual Controls. The DSLR gives the photographer control at their fingertips.
- Optical Viewfinder. The DSLR’s reflex mirror allows you to see what you’re photographing.
The Nikon D850 is the number one camera on everybody’s wishlist. There is simply no better DSLR around. This full-frame beauty is expensive, but it is the ultimate DSLR on the market.
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is the complete package. Canon’s original EOS 5D brought full-frame photography to the world, and the Mark IV improves on the versions before it. Still on the expensive side, it sits in good company with the Nikon D850.
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
Canon EOS 6D Mark II
The Canon EOS 6D Mark II is the pick of the middle-range DSLRs, and it’s popular with pros and enthusiasts alike.
Canon EOS 800D / EOS Rebel T7i
The Canon EOS 800D, also called the EOS Rebel T7i, is the pick of the entry-level cameras—perfect for enthusiasts and beginners.
To complete the match-up, the Nikon D3400 is another popular entry-level DSLR for beginners.
The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
