Picture This: Great Deals on DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras

Whether you are a photography professional or a passionate hobbyist, digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras offer a powerful and user friendly way to capture amazing shots. These cameras use mirrors and an optical viewfinder, which makes them an excellent choice both for beginners learning photography fundamentals and for professionals who love the tried and true SLR technology.

With a DSLR camera, you will enjoy powerful autofocus, superb image quality, effortless functionality, and excellent battery life. Plus, you will have your pick of a huge range of compatible lenses and camera accessories, so you can explore every angle of the fascinating world of photography.

Choosing the Best DSLR Camera for You

Many different factors can come into play when choosing a DSLR camera that differ from a compact camera or a standard point and shoot camera. It is worth researching these factors in depth before you decide. Here is a basic breakdown covering some of the top considerations:

APS C vs. Full Frame Sensor: These are the two main types of image sensors in DSLR cameras. Both produce high quality images, but each also has distinct advantages. APS C sensors capture a smaller field, which can be convenient when shooting at a distance without a telephoto lens. APS C cameras tend to be lighter and more compact, while full frame cameras capture a wider field and produce stunningly sharp images.

Megapixels and Resolution: Some DSLRs support higher image resolution than others, although all are capable of taking stunning ultra HD photos. Look at the camera’s maximum resolution, as well as its number of megapixels, to get a basic idea of its image quality capabilities.

ISO Sensitivity: Adjusting a camera’s ISO setting changes its light sensitivity, allowing you to capture photos in a variety of lighting conditions. The higher the upper end of the camera’s ISO range, the more robust options you will have for shooting in low light.

Continuous Shooting Speed: A camera in continuous shooting mode - also known as burst mode - takes many pictures in rapid succession - a key tool for action photography and charming candids. If you use burst mode heavily, be sure to look at a camera’s continuous shooting speed. More basic models are typically rated for 3 to 5 frames per second, while high end models can often capture 8, 10, or more.

Supported Media: All modern digital cameras use SD memory cards to store photos, but supported formats vary. If you want to use a specific memory format, such as microSD, verify that the camera model you are considering supports it.

Connectivity and Interfaces: Take note of which ports and connectors the camera offers. USB and HDMI connectors are two of the most important for many photographers, although wireless connectivity (through either Bluetooth or WiFi) is increasingly common in DSLRs.
