The wide range of Canon DSLR cameras comes with benefits, such as higher image quality, adaptability, more top speed, larger ISO range, manual controls, quality optics, depth of field and higher retaining value. Canon® manufactures high-quality mirrorless, point-and-shoot and DSLR cameras for all levels of users, be it beginners or professional photographers and videographers.
When buying a camera, what results you want is a critical factor for choosing the make and model. Look for the image quality required, the adaptability levels of various lenses, the need for an optical viewfinder, the ISO range required, depth of field and camera size. A travel photographer will best benefit from a small, light model like the Canon EOS™ 80D. It comes with a DIGIC™ 6 image processor, dual-pixel CMOS auto-focus, 24.2MP CMOS image sensor and ISO 100-16000 with an expandable allowance to 25600 ideal for sharp, clear images. Notably, the EOS 7D Mark II, 5D Mark IV, 70D and 80D are good examples of weather-resistant cameras. A marine life photographer requires a waterproof action camera with continuous autofocus and a fast burst rate.
A Canon CMOS Sensor Camera comes with high resolution that offers end-users and OEM expansion possibilities for industrial vision applications such as billboards. The ultra-high-pixel EOS 5DS R comes with 50.6MP and offers high-speed continuous shooting with up to 5fps. It has a full-frame CMOS sensor, and monitors size dots 8.1cm wide with a total of 1.04 million dots. These cameras capture exceptionally high pixel counts in compact designs, reducing the chances of pixelation. Most camera models come with at least 10-15MP, which is adequate for regular photography.
Different camera models come with specific features and modes which users can use to improve their skills. Models like the Canon EOS Rebel Camera also come with a manual mode that allows the user to adjust specs, such as aperture, shutter speed and focus to achieving a more hands-on experience. Advanced Canon DSLR cameras come with additional features, such as anti-shake, burst mode, LCD screens and more extensive ISO ranges, for the professional photographer. The Canon 5D Mark IV works well in low light, due to its strong low-light autofocus, which allows ISOs such as 3200, 6400 and 12800. This camera is ideal for users that require shooting in the dark such as astrophotographers.
Most Canon cameras come as a Canon Digital SLR camera body, and the addition of accessories increases versatility and improves user experience. While buying a camera, select a model that allows for interchanging with other camera lenses to expand your photography or videography scope. Crop sensor cameras such as the Rebel 60D take EF or EF-S lenses, full-frame cameras like the 5D take EF lenses and EOS cameras use EF-M lenses. The latter can use EF and EF-S with an adapter, which is a valuable digital camera accessory. Additional accessories include filters, camera bags and batteries.
