Some photographers have switched to mirrorless cameras for the reason that these are faster and much lighter than DSLR cameras. However, many remain fans of the physically heavy and durable DSLRs as these are a little less expensive and have more common parts and accessories than mirrorless ones. San Diego-based photographer Arie Eric Jong shares some of this year’s best cameras.
The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has a CMOS sensor, 30.4 megapixels, 6720 x 4480 resolution, 61 points autofocus, a touchscreen display, and a burst speed of 7fps. With an excellent image quality, incredible ISO performance; built-in WiFi, NFC, and GPS, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is an easy choice for photographers immersed in the field.
Nikon’s D780 carries a 6048 x 4024 resolution, 51-point autofocus, tilting touchscreen, burst speed of 7fps, and a video resolution of 3840 x 2160. For its price, the Nikon D780 is a little short from the standards set by the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. The Canon EOS 90D is three years younger than its predecessor, the 80D. This DSLR offers supreme video performance, perfect for professional photographers who dabble in videography. With excellent 4k shooting and 120FPS HD video, the 90D maintains an advanced processor with new 32MP sensor, great live view AF, all in a strong build.
For beginners in the discipline, Arie Eric Jong recommends the Canon EOS Rebel T7i. The reputation the Rebel series has built over the years is a testament of the excellence of the brand’s work.
