It is a rather pricey but extremely impressive camera, so much that it makes the most seasoned photographers salivate. That is why it tops the Gadget Review list of best DSLR cameras.

Nikon D810

This camera is Nikon’s best DSLR and offers excellent image and video quality alongside other good features. The Nikon D810 features a 36.3-megapixel full-frame image sensor, a superb low-light performance, as well as a speedy processor. It is, therefore, no wonder that we see this full-frame DSLR in the hands of the world’s top photographers.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

The Canon 5D Mark IV has upstaged the Canon 5DSLR as the specialty camera for still photographers with a significant improvement in the number of megapixels from 22.3 to 30.4. Users will also benefit from 4k video, a 7fps burst rate, built-in Wi-Fi, inter alia. For photographers who love to shoot both videos and stills, then this is the go-to camera. The most serious shortcoming of this camera is also one of its greatest strengths. The fact that it can shoot continuously means that it is susceptible to overheating and running out of storage.

Canon EOS 6D

This camera was introduced to the market in 2013 but still continues to compete well with fellow DSLRs. It serves its purpose well and offers an excellent image quality though it costs less than $2000. The major downside of this camera is that it has fewer megapixels than most full-frame cameras. Also, its autofocus is less advanced compared to other full-frame cameras.

Nikon D500

This camera is very expensive- and for a good reason. It was designed for professional action photographers owing to its ability to shoot an amazing 10 frames per second. This camera has an advanced autofocus just like a full-frame Nikon D5 and can shoot 4K video. Its biggest downside is its prohibitive price.

Pentax K-1

This camera is designed with landscape and still photographers in mind. This DSLR camera features 36.4 megapixels in resolution, a hardwired image stabilization as well as a sturdy aluminum alloy body. Its biggest drawback is its limited lens option and low quality video.

Canon EOS 8oD

If you are scouring the market for a canon semi-pro camera, then you should opt for a Canon 8oD. alternatively, you can go for the canon 7D Mark II described below. The Canon 8oD offers a better LCD screen, more megapixels, and it is cheaper and lighter as well than its closest competitor, the 7D Mark II. It costs a little less than most DSLRs, and it is the camera to go for if you are not planning to shoot on action photography.

Nikon D7200

This is Nikon’s second best DX format camera boasting of a sturdy build and outstanding image quality. It features improved buffering speeds, a much better LCD screen, as well as Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity. This camera is a major step up from basic or entry-level DSLRs such as Nikon D3300 and Nikon D5500 thanks to its more advanced autofocus, faster shooting, as well as weather sealing.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II

This is arguably Canon’s most feature-rich crop sensor camera designed for professional action shooters. It has one of the best functionalities and better lenses as compared to the D500 above.

Pentax K-70

This camera is known for its excellent weather sealing. But then all Pentax cameras are reputed for their weather sealing capabilities. It is a very solid mid-rage DSLR that features in-body image stabilization. More, it has an impressive low-light performance as well as customizable twin dials that permit easy manual operation.

Nikon D5500

This camera is dubbed an advanced beginner’ model thanks to the great number of nice features it has such as a tilting touchscreen designed for navigation and built-in Wi-Fi. It also has better autofocus. Selling at a measly $697, this camera is ideal for beginner photographers.

Ultimately, the camera you should opt for is one that best satisfies your photography needs.
