Looking to buy a digital SLR?, perhaps you have a compact or bridge camera and want to upgrade, or maybe you already have a dslr but are looking for something with a better spec. Whatever the reason, take a look at some of these best selling and top rated dslr’s.

Canon EOS 6D

If you’re looking to upgrade to a ‘full frame’ camera then the 6D is a good affordable choice. With 20.2MP, HD video: 1080p, ISO 100-25,600 (expandable to ISO 50-102,400). It’s also the first dslr to feature Wi-Fi connectivity and GPS technology built-in.

Nikon D3200

This entry level dslr has a 24.2 million pixel CMOS sensor and the same EXPEED 3 processing engine as the top-end D4.

Pentax K-30

This mid range dslr has robust construction and full weather sealing -the only mid-priced DSLR that has these features, which makes it a good choice for photographers who like to photograph outside in all weathers.


Canon EOS 5D mk111

Canon has upgraded most of the core features from it’s predecessor for this new release, they include a 22.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor and Canon’s latest DIGIC 5+ image processor. Other highlights include a 61-point AF module, an extensive ISO 100-25,600 sensitivity range


Canon EOS 1100D/ T3

A good choice for your first dslr, with its on-screen Features guide and Creative Auto options, the Canon EOS 1100D has beginner DSLR users in mind, but it goes on to offer HD video recording and the same 63-area iFCL metering system as seen on the enthusiast EOS 7D.

Nikon D800

The successor to the landmark D700 model, the D800 has a whopping 36.3MP sensor while also adding video recording, a larger LCD screen and EXPEED 3 processing to the mix. You can also choose to shoot in a variety of sensor crops including Nikon’s own DX APS-C format, which lowers overall resolution to a more manageable 15.3MP.

Sony Alpha A77

Boasting a  24.3MP APS-C format CMOS sensor, 19-point autofocus (AF) system, 12fps continuous shooting, full HD (1080p) movie recording and a high resolution electronic viewfinder. It also has built-in GPS, a three-inch, high resolution, 921,000-dot three-way tilting LCD.
