DSLRs on the Market Right Now

Let’s face it – when it comes to camera selection, these days, there’s a lot of options.

From full frame to micro four-thirds, DSLRs to mirrorless, and everything in between, it can be a little overwhelming when you look online for a camera or visit your local camera store.

It’s hard to muddle through all the options, which is why I thought it would be beneficial to narrow the field down for you.

With that in mind, I’ve put together this list of the four best DSLRs money can buy right now.


Essential Specs

  • 30-megapixel full frame sensor
  • Shutter speed up to 1/8000th seconds
  • ISO range from 64-102400
  • Burst shooting up to 7fps
  • 4K Video
  • 61 dual pixel autofocus points

The Canon EOS 5D has been around for a long time, and the Mark IV version of the camera does its heritage justice as it’s one of the best all-around cameras money can buy.

Granted, it’s not cheap, but if money isn’t a concern, this is the camera you should buy.

The Mark IV’s sensor is magical, delivering results that are tack-sharp.

But aside from superb image quality, the Mark IV’s autofocus system is probably my favorite feature. With “just” 61 AF points, it lags behind some of its competitors (namely, Sony). However, since all 61 points are of the dual pixel variety, you get amazingly advanced performance with handling that you’d expect from a professional-grade camera.

I’d be remiss not to mention a few other features as well.

For starters, the Mark IV has a glorious LCD, which at 3.2-inches with 1.62 million dots is big and easy on the eyes.

It’s also touchscreen-enabled, a must-have for the modern photographer.

It’s actually the same screen that’s found on the EOS 1D X Mark II – an even more expensive camera. However, the 5D Mark IV enjoys full-time touchscreen capabilities whereas the 1D X Mark II only gets that feature in live view.
