Whether you’re an enthusiast looking to become a pro or you just want a camera that shoots higher than your expectations, you can’t go wrong with a Canon DSLR. The brand offers a laundry list of models at different price points, but if you’re looking for the best of the best, you’ve come to the right place.
Our camera experts have spent countless hours in our state-of-the-art labs testing every Canon DSLR on the market to figure out which deserve a spot in our top five. Our top pick is the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (available at Amazon). You’ll have to spend a little extra to get the performance this camera affords—along with most of the others on the list—but it’ll be well worth it when you look back on the beautiful images and videos you’ve captured.
Canon EOS-1D X
Professionals who shoot with Canon’s 1D series have, until recently, had to choose between the full-frame image sensor in the 1D Mark III and the exceptional speed of the 1D Mark IV—or buy both. So it’s undeniably exciting news that Canon’s EOS-1D X, the company’s latest flagship body, combines the best features of both lines, offering a new full-frame image sensor, exceptional autofocus performance and control, and continuous shooting speed in excess of 12 frames per second.
