Best DSLR Cameras

When it comes to choosing the best DSLR cameras, there are many options to choose from. That’s because single-lens digital SLR (DSLR) cameras are the oldest, so there’s a wide variety for new photographers and professionals. A DSLR camera is nothing more than a modern version of the venerable single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. The light passes through the lens and is reflected in the viewfinder from a mirror. When you press the shutter, the mirror flips over, exposing the image sensor to the light. Unlike other cameras, when you look through the viewfinder of a DSLR, you see exactly what will appear in your picture.

Traditionally, DSLRs offer the best image quality because they have the largest image sensors. In addition, DSLRs have the widest range of lenses available – from macro to telephoto – making them the most flexible platform for photographers. Another advantage of DSLRs is that they can also accommodate older lenses, many of which are still among the best you can find.

That said, there’s a good chance that another DSLR will better suit your budget and your specific needs – so be sure to read the entire buying guide before choosing the best DSLR for you. Also, check our list of the best mirrorless cameras.

1. Nikon D3500

The best DSLR for beginners

Last update was on: 2020-12-02 12:22 am

While you’re still learning and deciding what type of device is best for you, choose a device that’s simple enough to understand right away and affordable enough that you can change your mind and change it later if you decide you need something different. The D3500 is the entry-level model in Nikon’s DSLR lineup, but it has a 24.2MP sensor that is as good as a camera at twice the price, and it offers a very good continuous shooting speed of 5 fps for a beginner’s camera.

The Guide mode will help beginners get started and understand the basics, but the D3500 has all the manual controls you need to become familiar with photography while improving your skills. It sometimes comes a little cheaper with a non-VR (unstabilized) kit lens, but it’s certainly worth paying a little more for the VR version. Overall, this is one of the best DSLR cameras.

2. Canon EOS Rebel SL3

If you stretch your budget, you can get 4k and a vari-angle touchscreen

Canon manufactures a few cheaper DSLRs than this one, including the 18-megapixel EOS 4000D and the 24-megapixel EOS 2000D, but we think they are too small in terms of functionality and build quality and recommend paying a small surcharge for the EOS Rebel SL3 DSLR (sold as the EOS 250D in Europe). Why is this? Because it has a variable-angle touch screen on the back and a sensor with Canon’s dual-pixel AF CMOS technology, so real-world autofocus is really fast.

We also like the fact that you can start with a simple guided user interface while you’re still learning, and then switch to the standard setup when you feel more confident and want more control. The Rebel SL3 / EOS 250D replaces Canon’s previous Rebel SL2/EOS 200D, adding 4K video and better autofocus in live view. It’s a DSLR that can beat mirrorless cameras at their own game! Overall, this is one of the best DSLR cameras.

3. Nikon D7500

Nikon fans ready to switch from a beginner’s model should look at the Nikon D7500. It’s a larger and more robust camera that offers 8fps continuous shooting, Nikon’s renowned 51-point autofocus system, and the ability to shoot 4K movies. Its rear screen is tiltable, unlike the Nikon D5600’s, which is fully articulated, making vertical shots more difficult, but it is suitable for both video and horizontal shots. The D7500 has a lower resolution sensor than the D5600 (20MP vs. 24MP), but it’s a newer design that sacrifices a few megapixels in exchange for better image quality at high ISO levels and faster image capture. Overall, this is one of the best DSLR cameras.

4. Canon EOS 6D Mark II

The best full-frame DSLR

Now that it is a few years old, the price of this full-frame camera has gone down and it is now accessible to those who do not make photography a full-time job. The Canon EOS 6D Mark II is the best DSLR camera with a full-frame sensor in this price range. The EOS 6D Mark II takes excellent pictures in a variety of conditions, and we also like the fact that it can take pictures at 6.6 frames per second and has a fully articulated touch screen. Its dual-pixel CMOS autofocus has a good 45-point average but does not cover the entire sensor.

We’d also like this camera to have more than one memory card slot, but its battery has a rated life of 1,200 shots, making it easy to get ready for a day of shooting. For those who want a full-format DSLR without spending a cent, the Canon EOS 6D Mark II is a good option. Overall, this is one of the best DSLR cameras.

5. Canon EOS 90D

The best DSLR camera for video

While many mirrorless cameras can shoot 4K video, this feature is relatively rare in DSLR cameras under $2,000. The Canon EOS 90D is one of the few exceptions, which is why it is the best DSLR camera for those who also want to shoot, but don’t want to spend a lot of money. When shooting video, the Canon EOS 90D’s dual-pixel sensors lock onto the subject you point at, keeping it in focus no matter where it moves.

Plus 45 autofocus points allow it to accurately track subjects moving in front of the lens. And it shoots 4K video at up to 30 frames per second. A 3-inch touch screen that tilts and folds down lets you compose photos and videos from different angles, and a headset and microphone jack make sure you get the best sound. Overall, this is one of the best DSLR cameras.

6. Nikon D780

The new Nikon D780 offers the best of both worlds!

The Nikon D780 takes the phase-detecting autofocus on Nikon’s mirrorless Z6 model sensor to offer DSLR with mirrorless camera live view performance – great! In fact, the D780 is like an upgraded and upgraded version of Nikon‘s ever-popular D750 full-frame DSLR. Not only does the D780 feature advanced AF in live view mode, but it’s also equipped with a high-resolution tilt-touch screen, 4K UHD video, two UHS-II-compatible memory card slots, and a continuous shooting speed of up to 12 frames/s in live view mode.

Combine that with its solid design and comfortable grip, and you’ve got a camera that’s an instant classic. We’d just like the price to come down a bit, though – being brand new, it’s a bit expensive at the moment. It also reminds us how good (and cheap) the older Nikon D750 is at the moment. If all you need is a good quality classic camera, the D750 is still a great buy. Overall, this is one of the best DSLR cameras.

7. Canon EOS Rebel T7i

Still a solid entry-level DSLR for beginners

Canon launched the EOS Rebel T7i (or EOS 800D in Europe) in 2017, but there is still a lot to do for beginners. We also believe it offers better value for money than the new Canon EOS Rebel T8i / EOS 850D. Those who want to tackle the traditional weight of a DSLR will appreciate its great maneuverability, complemented by a user-friendly interface and excellent controls on the variable angle touch screen.

Performance is not to be outdone: the 45-point dual-pixel autofocus works brilliantly with Live View, while 6fps burst shooting is not too bad for an entry-level DSLR. And the battery life of 600 shots makes any point of view disappear from the water. There are of course some compromises: the polycarbonate shell will never be confused with the high-end, while the viewfinder covers only 95% of the scene. The video resolution is also limited to 1080p, and while the overall image quality is impressive, the dynamic range could be better. Overall, this is one of the best DSLR cameras.

Fans of mirrorless cameras often complain about the size and weight of DSLRs, and they are right. The Nikon D850 is a camera that makes a lot of noise compared to the new Nikon Z models. But this size works in your favor if you photograph with big and heavy lenses, and most pro lenses are big and heavy! This is a handling factor that many users without mirrors do not take into account. As a digital SLR, the D850 has a bright, clear optical viewfinder that many photographers still prefer to a digital display, no matter how good it is.

The D850’s 45.7-megapixel sensor produces fairly superb image quality, but it can still maintain a shooting speed of 7 frames per second or 9 frames per second with the optional battery handle. Even without the handle, the D850 has an incredible 1,840 shots – more than any of its competitors without the mirror – and is equipped with two memory card slots: one for the new XQD card format and one for regular SD/SDHC/SDXC cards. Overall, this is one of the best DSLR cameras.

9. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

Canon’s full-frame workhorse is massively popular with pros

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Full Frame Digital SLR Camera Body

$2,299.00 $2,499.00

The EOS 5D Mark IV is Canon’s all-time best DSLR camera if you want a reasonably high megapixel count without sacrificing continuous shooting speed, and clean, noise-free image quality at very high ISO levels. On paper, its features are unspectacular compared to those of the Nikon D850, but for many professionals, a 30-megapixel resolution is more than enough – and 4K video makes it the best film camera for many DSLR users, even if the crop factor is quite high.

Canon’s dual-pixel CMOS AF gives the ESO 5D Mark IV outstanding autofocus performance, even in movie mode and live view. It has a proven track record of versatility, robustness, and reliability – all key benefits for professional photographers. Recently, however, Canon has turned to its EOS R cameras without full-frame mirrors. It is therefore unclear if and when we will see a successor to the EOS 5D Mark IV. Overall, this is one of the best DSLR cameras.

10. Pentax K-1 Mark II

Pentax makes only one full-frame DSLR, but it’s a cracker!

$1,796.95

Another classic DSLR option for those looking for the best Pentax cameras to buy, offering many features while handling itself in a way that is familiar to photo enthusiasts. Again, as it is a Pentax, we have built-in vibration reduction, but the real selling point is the full-frame sensor with its 36.4 million pixel resolution. The scissor-action rear screen and extended exposure modes, as well as the two SD card slots, are also impressive.

It’s not all good news; the camera only offers a modest maximum burst speed of 4.4 fps in full-frame, which, while sufficient, won’t impress sports or action photographers. There’s also no phase-detection hybrid AF system for its live view mode and “only” Full HD video capability rather than 4K, but we’re fortunate to have the same precise and powerful 33-point AF system as its predecessor. But at the end of the day, excellent image quality at an affordable price awaits you with this Pentax DSLR. Overall, this is one of the best DSLR cameras.
