Picture Perfect Digital SLR Best Buys


Pentax K-5 16.3 MP
Pentax continues to make strides with this dustproof, weather-resistant, and cold-resistant DSLR. With an 18-55mm lens and 3-inch LCD, under the K-5’s hood shooters get a 16.3-megapixel CMOS sensor – which brings a whopping maximum sensitivity of ISO 51,200 in expanded mode – continuous shooting of 7.0 fps and a 1080p full-HD video mode.
US $1,600


Canon Eos Rebel T2i 18MP
Built with an 18.0-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and a DIGIC 4 image processor, the T2i comes with an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens and ISO 100-6,400 (which is expandable to 12,800). The 63-zone, dual-layer metering system is powerful, and users rave about the HD video quality as well, executed at 30fps and 1920 x 1080.
US $1,199


Nikon D700 12.1MP
Utilising Nikon’s original FX-format CMOS image sensor, the D700 boasts superior picture quality through a wide ISO sensitivity range of 200 
to 6,400, which can be set to ISO-equivalent 25,600. Nikon’s EXPEED digital image processing concept, exclusive Scene Recognition System (utilising a 1,005-pixel RGB sensor), and Active D-Lighting to compensate for highlights or shadows, provide sharp images in virtually any setting.
US $2,179. Motor wind extra.


Olympus PEN E-P1
Olympus has always been notable for producing cameras smaller than its competitors’ versions, without sacrificing quality or functionality. The E-P1 takes the company’s higher-end E-620, removes the mirror and optical viewfinder, and leaves a solid, affordable SLR utilising a Micro Four Thirds format to do all you could ask it to, and with an old-school, all-metal exterior.
US $799


Sony Alpha DSLR-α390L
Sony has made no qualms about targeting the entry-level DSLR user, but that doesn’t mean fewer features. With 14.2 megapixels, the α390L also uses a unique Live View system, different from its contemporaries in that it does not show the output from the main imaging sensor. Instead there is a second, smaller sensor placed up in the viewfinder tunnel.
US $499
