We're in kind of a golden age of DSLR cameras. They're cheaper than ever, so they're affordable, and they do more stuff than ever, so the time's right to jump in. Here's our DSLR picks for every (non-pro) budget.
Canon said today that it would give a free firmware update to users of the hallowed EOS 5D Mark II camera, allowing them to shoot in full HD using manual exposure controls including ISO, aperture and shutter speed.
The latest dSLRs shoot excellent HD video, as long as you don't mind the shakiness. Redrock, who released some of the firstpro solutions to this problem, have just announced a product that's downright buyable.
DxO Labs does something quite tricky: Quantifies the quality of an image sensor's performance, so you can look at a neat number grade for a quick gauge. Surprisingly, a Sony DSLR bests equivalent Canon models.
