The Best DSLR Cameras

DSLR refers to “digital single-lens reflex”, and differentiates the camera from a camera that has film. The “reflex” design is the most notable difference between this type of camera and other digital cameras. In this design the light travels through the lens, then a mirror and that then sends an image to either a screen or a viewfinder.

The DSLR is the most common type of interchangeable lens camera in the world today, they have proven hardy and can withstand moisture, dust and even rain. The main advantage of this camera over more traditional types is that it produces better image quality. So, what are some of the best DSLR cameras on today market?

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

Canon’s EOS 5 cameras have a great reputation and with good cause, the first EOS camera really made “full-frame” photography affordable to everybody. This camera was also the first to market full HD video capture for the very first time on a DSLR camera. The Mark IV has improvements all over, including a new sensor that helps to deliver really accurate results. This camera does not come cheap, but is seriously worth the money.

Canon EOS Rebel T7i

If you are looking for an affordable way of getting into the DSLR market, then the Canon EOS Rebel T7i is a serious contender. It has a 45 point autofocus system that is supported by a superb live AF view. Also, it has a great graphical interface which is really attractive for the user. However, this camera does not have 4K video. Still this Canon model pushes all the right buttons for a perfect entry level DSLR.

Pentax K-1

This Pentax DSLR is ideal if you are an outdoor photographer, it is hardy and rugged and comes at a really affordable price. Technically it scores points also, utilising the Pentax “Pixel Shift Technology” and a useful “handheld” mode. The Pentax K-1 takes great landscape and still life photographs and is perfect for portraits. However, if you require faster auto-focus then perhaps this camera is not for you.

Nikon D3300

Perhaps a surprise choice to some people, but this DSLR camera had to feature because of its super affordable price. Because the Nikon D3300 is relatively low cost don’t think the spec is not up to scratch. The D3300 has one of the sharpest APS-C sensors on the market, and it incorporates a nifty retracting lens kit. This DSLR also has the same 24-megapixel sensor as the rest of Nikon’s DSLR APS-C range. The beauty of this camera is that it is almost designed for beginners, the controls are simple and easy to use, and it makes taking quality photographs almost a sure thing.

These five DSLR cameras are some of the best on today’s market, they range in price and also specification. Which one you choose really depends on what type and level of photographer you are. But it is worth bearing in mind in the world of DSLR’s cameras it is not always the most expensive that is the best, and this even goes for cameras from the same manufacturer.
