DSLR's are generally considered to be the best camera for the enthusiast, student or professional photographer (outside of specialist and medium format cameras). They offer some of the best image quality, highest speed and the most features.

To help simplify things, we've put together our list of the Top 5 Best DSLR's on the market right now.


1: The Professional Camera - Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

While there will always be a raging debate between the camera brand fans, it's hard to argue against the fact that Canon has dominated the market with their EOS 5D range of cameras.

Being much smaller and lighter than the coveted EOS 1D series, and providing superior image quality and features than the APS-c models. The Canon EOS 5D is as comfortable in the Studio, as it is at weddings, or on the photojournalist's shoulder.

Taking this ever-popular Digital SLR line firmly into the modern age, the 5D Mark IV features stunning 4K video, exceptional low-light performance and blistering 7 frames per second continuous shooting.
