1. Nikon D800: $2,800.
The current “King of Resolution,” the D800 features a full-frame 36 megapixel sensor, the highest DSLR resolution on the market. A “full-frame” camera means the size of the digital photo sensor is effectively equal to 35mm film, long considered the industry standard. But it’s not only about the resolution, this camera also provides high-quality video and a superb 51-point autofocus system.
2. Nikon D600: $2,000
The D600 is Nikon’s entry-level full-frame camera that packs a very respectable 24 megapixels. The sensor is rated very high, being beaten only by the D800. Yet the smaller files — compared to the D800’s — will save hard drive space if you shoot a lot of images.
