2. Canon EOS 5DS

The only thing that out ranks the Nikon D810 (a camera loved by professionals) in resolution is the Canon EOS 5DS. With 50.6MP resolution is no longer a concern. Delivering excellent image quality, limits noise, and gives a great dynamic range. Also on the expensive side, in the same ballpark as the Mark IV, this is also intended as an investment for experts and professionals. The only downside is that with a resolution like this, raw data files are very large. Additionally, it goes without saying, this camera asks for nothing but the best in lenses. Another investment.

3. Canon EOS 7D – Mark II

Far more reasonable in price and still made for experts! It is the perfect compromise for lovers of photography who don’t use their camera’s to make a living. The EOS 7D Mark II is meant to take a beating with a very sturdy build. With 10 frames per second as its max shooting speed, you’re not going to miss a thing! The video quality captures in 1080p. The downside is that a very small step down in quality is a very big drop in price. The price of the Mark II is far more reasonable, but in comparison, a step up in price is a lot more quality in resolution and a step down in price is not a very big difference.

4. Canon EOS Rebel T6i

For the beginners, because we haven’t forgotten about them, is the Rebel T6i. A continuous shooting speed of 5 frames per second and a 19-point autofocus leave this among the best for those just starting out. Video still captures in 1080p and the features are very easy to learn and use. It keeps the noise level low and produces great image quality. The improved exposure and autofocus are great to introduce newbies to photography. While it isn’t the best camera for photography, it is definitely among the best for those learning photography.

5. EOS Rebel SL1

Made for smaller hands and beginner understanding the Rebel SL1 is made for comfort. Its sleek design is nice to look at and durable. The design outweighs the features though when it comes down to it. The Rebel SL1 is low on features. This can be a big plus for those who are just learning and want to take things one step at a time. It also decreases the dependency on these features from starting out with a great camera that’s loaded with features. This is an entry-level DSLR. It produces good image quality and is worth its price.

 

EOS Rebel SL1 at the glance.

Description

*Combining a pair of zooms with a versatile DSLR, the EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm and 75-300mm Lenses Bundle from Canon includes the sleek camera, two lenses covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives, and a padded gadget bag for holding all of the kit components.
*The EOS Rebel SL1 features an 18MP APS-C-sized CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 image processor to produce high-resolution still imagery and full HD 1080p recording up to 30 fps. The processor also affords a wealth of performance and speed-related assets, including 4 fps continuous shooting and a sensitivity range of ISO 100-12800, which is further expandable to ISO 25600. A 9-point AF system, which includes a high-precision center cross-type point, ensures fast and accurate focusing or, when working in live view, Hybrid CMOS AF II combines both phase- and contrast-detection focusing methods to assist in continuous focusing and subject tracking.
*One of the SL1’s most notable features is its highly compact size and light weight, measuring just 4.6″ wide and weighing only 14.4 oz with battery and memory card installed. Incorporated within the small body, however, is a large 3.0″ 1.04m-dot Clear View II touchscreen LCD monitor, which enables an intuitive touch-based means for focus and exposure control as well as playback and menu navigation.
*Included with the body is the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28.8-88mm, covering wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives. An Optical Image Stabilizer system helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps and the STM stepping AF motor delivers smooth and near-silent focusing performance. One aspherical element is integrated into the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations and optimized lens coatings help to reduce lens flare and ghosting while maintaining high image contrast and color neutrality. Extending the combined zoom range even further, the EF 75-300 f/4-5.6 III lens is also included, which offers an equivalent focal length range of 120-480mm. Well-suited to use with distant subjects, this lens utilizes a DC autofocus motor to acquire precise focus while the telephoto perspective is especially useful for visually compressing the space between subjects and producing a shallow depth of field.

6. EOS 1D X

Slightly awkward to hold with a vertical grip the EOS 1D X makes it worth the awkwardness with a great exposure system and superb noise control. It’s a bit heavy which comes down to the preference for the user but overall delivers quality. Canon here opted for a sensor with a low pixel count compared to Canon’s other options for DSLR cameras. This is still a little pricey, but it isn’t intended for photographers new to the game. It also hosts a max shooting rate of 12 frames per second which is among the highest frames per second on the list.

Note: this lens is discontinued by manufacturer & the new model of it is the EOS 1D X Mark ii

7. Canon EOS 5D Mark III

On the contrast of the Rebel SL1, this is loaded with features. It is a medium step between expert and slightly knowledgeable on camera uses. There should also be an expected learning period as its AG system is complicated and some features are not placed intuitively. However, it makes up with high quality and very detailed raw files. There is also a significant price gap between the Mark III and the Mark IV. All of the full frame benefits and 1080 p video quality and hundreds of dollars less.

Description

*With supercharged EOS performance and stunning full frame, high-resolution image capture, the EOS 5D Mark III is designed to perform. Special optical technologies like the 61-Point High Density Reticular AF and an extended ISO range of 100-25600 (expandable to 50 (L), 51200 (H1) and 102400 (H2) make the EOS 5D Mark III ideal for shooting weddings in the studio or out in the field, and great for still photography.

8. Rebel T5/1200D

This is the baseline of a DSLR. Not overrun with complicated features and in a price range that beginners can afford. It hosts a three-inch screen, 18-megapixel sensor and records in 1080p for video. It is a boost from the other introductory cameras in terms of quality. Its design is also easy to hold but isn’t meant for the long haul in terms of durability. The Rebel T5 1200D will definitely get the job done and is easy to learn on.

I strongly recommend this lens for amateur photographers who are willing to explore photography techniques & learn on an easy DSLR camera like the T5, you should know too that this lens is the best seller lens on Amazon.

9. EOS Rebel T6i/750D

The design is streamlined, easy to handle and very functional. It is a close rival to the higher priced cameras at a much lower price tag. This is best for the photographer in the family who thrives on pursuing their passion without doing it as a day job. It has a barrage of features and they aren’t difficult to learn. The only drop in the image quality for the price is slightly lower than you would expect. This is particularly seen in dark or dim lighting.

10. EOS 70D

Last, but certainly not least, is the EOS 70D. Overall, one of the best bangs for your budgeted buck. It’s much lower in price than the expert level DSLRs. Without the severe drop in quality of features. Video records well and is easy to manage. It hosts a lot of single function buttons. So no fiddling around to find what feature you are looking for. It fits nicely in the hand and feels comfortable shooting horizontal or vertical.

*The EOS 70D features a 20.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5+ image processor to ensure high-resolution images and excellent low-light sensitivity. The processor also provides notable speed throughout the camera system, including the ability to record up to 7 fps in full-resolution, quickened AF speeds, and full HD 1080p video recording in multiple frame rates with manual exposure and audio level control. For use in live view, Dual Pixel CMOS AF has been incorporated into the 70D and serves as a fast and intelligent phase-detection focusing system that incorporates two photodiodes within each pixel to produce a quality of focusing akin to that of a camcorder. For touch control over focusing, as well as intuitive handling of camera settings and menu navigation, a 3.0″ 1.04m-dot vari-angle ClearView II touchscreen LCD is available in addition to the traditional optical pentaprism viewfinder. Wireless connectivity enables instant sharing of images from the camera and also permits remote control over the camera from linked mobile devices.
*Included with the camera body is the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, which serves as a versatile everyday lens that encompasses a 28.8-88mm equivalent focal length range. The STM stepping motor helps to achieve near-silent focusing when used in conjunction with the Movie Servo AF mode and the optical image stabilization system helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake. To further extend the effective zoom range, the EF-S 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS STM lens is also included, which offers an equivalent focal length range of 88-400mm. Well-suited to use with distant subjects, this lens also utilizes an STM autofocus motor, for smooth, quiet performance, as well as optical image stabilization to minimize the effects of camera shake.

  1. Wow! Very interesting post! I’m glad I came across this blog. This review is great for anyone looking to start in the photography world, like me.
    The reading was dynamic and made me want to look for more. Very useful information! I can see you’ve worked hard to create this content. Congratulations

  2. For sometime now I have wanted to purchase a DSLR camera but they aren’t cheap and I haven’t been able to save up enough money.

    While reading this post I found it interesting that all the cameras on this list are canons, Why? Do you feel that canon makes the best DSLRs? Why didn’t any of Nikon’s DSLRs make the list?

    1. The answer is simple I am just a Canon fan, that’s why all my reviews & articles about Canon, also I believe that there are no differences between Canon & Nikon but what you make you take a good shot is photography knowledge first then choosing the equipment comes next, thanks for your comment.

  3. EhabAmin you have certainly given me a lot to think about. First of all I think 40 years ago when I bought my last camera I paid $250 and thought I had a good deal. You show quite a bit of Cannon’s variety which tells me what kinds of things to look for in any camera I buy. Thanks for the valuable info.
