DSLR Cameras – which one is meant for you?

The market today:

If you were to buy a DSLR Camera for yourself or for an acquaintance and you were to try and do some basic market research on what exactly you should zero on, you will realize that there are two main options for you.

The market today has two great choices for anyone who wants to equip himself either professionally or just as a hobby to be able to click great pictures. They are

  1. Equipments from the photography giant, Canon; or
  2. The NASA recommended Nikon Electronics.

Tough choice, you say? Well, it in fact is!

Both the electronic giants are big enough to capture each other’s market share and their technological and research and development prowess are at par. Both of them come out with variant models and upgrade them as soon as possible. And there seems to be a healthy competition where the consumer seeks to benefit in the form of regular upgrades and most competitive pricing.

Here is a list of the top rated dslr cameras in 2016:

The list enumerates the name of the model that is most popularly tagged with the brand name. The camera retailers and the photographers insist on using the series to name them specifically because both the companies logically follow a pattern while upgrading to the next model and the number series helps them to easily identify the preceding and the succeeding models.

  1. Canon EOS 5DS
  2. Nikon D810
  3. Nikon D500
  4. Canon EOS 7D Mark II
  5. Canon EOS 80D
  6. Nikon D7200
  7. Nikon D750
  8. Pentax K -1
  9. Nikon D3300
  10. Canon EOS Rebel T6i

Is there a way to know which is the best Nikon DSLR camera for you?

If you are stuck on the question which should be your first Nikon Camera, here is a quick reckoning:

  1. It should suit your purpose:

Look at the camera as a means to fulfill your purpose. No need to go for the most expensive or fancier model. Start modestly. You can acquire the serious models once you graduate in your work;

  1. The functions should not be too mind boggling:

You must choose a camera which is simple to use. And stay away from the complicated function dash boards that can overwhelm you at least in the beginning;

  1. Not too heavy on the pocket

Go light when going in for the first one and prefer to talk to experts before deciding which one of them will fit like glove on your hands.

Here are the reviews of the most popular models – one from each of the brands:

  1. Canon EOS 5D:

This camera is a beauty in itself. It has a full frame CMOS which boasts of an astounding 50.6 Mega Pixels picture quality and a 61 point Auto focus. The screen is 3.2 inches wide and the shooting speed is amazingly high at 5fps. This model is recommended for the professionals and photography experts who will have full use for the excellent features and can create magic with the lenses.

The only downside is that it does not have a built in Wi-Fi and ultra video recording. The absence of both these features makes it necessary for the camera to be loaded with bigger memory cards and it could be a bother to keep manually transferring still images and videos when the card is full.

  1. Nikon d3300 review 2016/2017:

Even thought the model is price friendly, the features in it make it the most desirable entry level camera. The features of the camera are logically arranged on the case itself and it gives enough scope for the person to learn while he still has hands on the camera. The sensor is CMOS and it has 24.2 Mega pixels with an 11 point auto focus. The screen which is 3 inches wide allows for continuous 5fps speed while shooting.

The downside of this camera is that it is a little too small for some hands. But for its price and the feature that it packages it is a full value for the money spent. It is highly recommended tool for learning the ropes in photography.
