    Top Five DSLR Cameras for 2008

    (Page 1 of 5 )

    This article will cover this writer's choice for the top five DSLR cameras for 2008, including the Canon EOS - 1Ds mark III, the Nikon D300, the Canon EOS 450D, the Sony Alpha DSLR A350, and the Pentax K20D. Please keep reading to get a complete analysis of these top-of-the-line cameras.

    Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III

    It's been three long years since Canon released the follow-up to the the popular EOS 1Ds Mark II, but the wait was well worth it. The EOS 1Ds mark III has plenty of new features, a larger three-inch LCD display, and increased megapixels over its predecessor. This camera is the cream of the crop when it comes to DSLRs, and since it is a top-of-the-line camera, you can expect to pay a premium price for it. The 1DsMark III was released in early 2008, and carries a hefty price tag of about $8,000. Obviously, this camera is specifically designed for professional photographers, or for very avid amateur photographers who don't mind forking over that kind of money for a DSLR camera.

    This DSLR comes equipped with just about every feature that you could imagine, and there is an abundance of automatic and manual controls for just about every function white balance, exposure, focus, etc. The 1Ds Mark III is equipped with not one, but two Digic III processors. This helps keep the performance of this camera at sufficient levels, which isn't easy for a camera that is capable of shooting at 21.1 MP of resolution. Typically, the higher the resolution, the slower the performance of the camera. This camera maintains the balance between high resolution and speedy performance very well.

    This shooter excels when it comes to image quality; it doesn't get much better. Even in automatic modes, this camera takes exceptionally accurate photos. Colors are always accurate, white balance is always on target, and image noise is always kept at bay as well. This camera is capable of shooting at ISO 3200, although some noticeable noise is evident when shooting higher than ISO 800. Overall though, this Canon is worth every one of its many pennies if image quality is a high priority for your next DSLR camera.

    If I had to point out any flaws with this camera, I would reluctantly point out that its weight is rather high. With the battery and lens attached, the 1Ds Mark III weighs in at over four pounds, which will seem very heavy at the end of a full day of shooting. Other than that minor flaw, this camera is near perfect. If you can afford the ridiculous price tag of the 1Ds Mark III, I highly recommend it.
