The Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera is a compact, lightweight, versatile model
which allows for maximum range of use for the serious photographer without
limiting itself by location or specialization. The DSLR market is complex,
competitive, constantly innovating and improving and with every new idea and
accessory things get better and better. Technology progresses at the speed of
thought, and it’s hard to know what makes one DSLR better than another. For the
layman one high end DSLR will show no notable difference to the others, but for
the serious photographer any edge is important. Herein we will explain how to
define the best DSLR camera and what makes one good, before we decide which
model takes home the trophy. Which is the best partner in the search for that
What Makes a DSLR Camera Good?
There are arange of things that make for a quality camera. There’s high resolution lenses obviously, as well as 4k video, autofocus, fast shooting and of course the question of
sheer megapixel power. What we want is a camera that can do it all, from action
shots to distance work. There are also a series of features that make for an
edge, because there’s nothing we won’t cram into a camera if it’ll help us.
Resolution and focus are essential of course, but we love our toys and add ons.
So how do we balance these many features? Overall functionality? Range of use? Any one given task? Well the most important feature of a DSLR is versatility, so in this article we’re going for the best generalist, rather than the ones that are best for each type of photography. So, no matter how good it is for action you won’t find the 1DX Mark 3 among our contenders.
We’ll be considering ease of use, effectiveness, functionality, range and even convenience of use and carrying, nothing but the best all round DSLR will do. The only thing you
won’t find listed here is price. After all, we’re talking quality here, not
The Main Contenders
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
5D Mark IV is a serious contender for the best DSLR. It is expensive, but if
you’re going to be serious about this it should be well worth it. It packs 30.4
megapixels, not the highest on the market, but it comes with a host of
convenience features that make it suitable for whatever you need done. It has
4K video, touch screen functionality, faster shooting and higher resolution
than most. What it has above everything else is its versatility, it can’t just
do everything, it’s good at everything, from mountain ranges, to sleeping
kittens to formula 1. It does lack a little in the sheer power department
though, which is a point against it.
It says a lot about the state of Nikon’s recent models that the only offering they have
that’s even close to a contender is the three-year-old D810. Still, the old
beast holds up, with the second-best megapixel count on its market. It has a
speedy processor and holds up under even the toughest conditions with its low
light performance and durability. It’s also had years to gain a nice little
catalogue of optional extras and lenses. The most significant problem is the fact
that while it does a lot of things adequately, it doesn’t do anything
particularly well. If you have an amateur photographer who’s looking to step up
their game, or someone who wants a good camera for shooting this is something
worth thinking of. If Nikon takes a significant step up on its next model from
this base, it might have some hope of knocking Cannon off the throne.
Cannon EOS 5DS R
There’s something to be said for a big boy’s toy, and the 5DSR is the biggest on the
market. It’s the highest resolution DSLR on the market in 2017. It’s an
impressive piece for landscape and still life photographers, with its
incredible 50.6 megapixels of resolution, topping out its nearest competitor by
almost 15 megapixels. Where it shoots itself in the foot is its lack of range
in functionality. It is designed for still life and doesn’t have any of the little
tweaks that make video easy. It also lacks some of the ease of use of the other
top models, but if all you want is clarity of shot, then this is the one for
The Final Verdict.
Its hard to pick a winner, and it’s easy to feel a natural inclination to go for power
and intensity. It’s an obvious advantage and it feels counterintuitive not to
take it. So, it’s almost apologetically that we hand the title over the 5D Mark
IV. No matter how much we want to want the 5DS R as we said it’s versatility
we’re pushing for. It can do anything, and there’s nothing we can do but take
our hats off to a camera you can take anywhere, do anything with, and still be
impressed with the results. The D820 can do a few things it can’t, but it can’t
do anything nearly as well. Cannon has been the leading brand in DLR for quite
a while now and it still has the title.
The best camera for any photographer is the one that matches your needs. Even with a
good recommendation, different cameras are the best for different things. So, do the rounds and think about the kind of pictures you’re
going to be taking when you pair them with the camera you’re going to be using.
Simply buying the best reviewed model is fine, but it can lead to spending
money you don’t need to. Having the objective best quality is a fine thing, and
it’s obvious why you’d be tempted, but nothing quite beats finding exactly what
by this time next year we’ll have a whole new catalogue of models to salivate
over, but for those who want the edge right now, the 5D is as close to a master
of all trades as anything can be.
