Professional DSLR Roundup

Regardless of make and model, each of the following DSLRs is the best offering from the camera manufacturers represented in our Professional DSLR Roundup. Although many of these cameras seem similar in many respects to their mid- and entry-level counterparts—at least on paper—the narrative changes dramatically once you pick one up.

Entry-Level DSLR Roundup

Considering the degree of advanced technology contained in the average entry-level DSLR these days, one often feels the urge to add an asterisk to the term “entry-level,” because smaller size and plastic body panels aside, each of these cameras is a real honker in its own right.

Photographing cityscapes is like shooting landscapes… only more so. I say this because cityscapes consist of hundreds of buildings that qualify as skyscrapers. New York City, which for the record has more buildings than any other city on the planet, has more than 5,500 high-rise buildings.

The New Sony alpha SLT-A77

With the introduction of the SLT-A77 and SLT-A65, Sony is making it perfectly clear they are proceeding full speed ahead with the fixed, translucent mirror technology cameras introduced last year. The top gun of the two new DSLRs is the Sony alpha SLT-A77, which in addition to a hefty, weather resistant, magnesium-alloy body, features an all-new 24.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor, making it the highest-resolution DSLR among APS-C format DSLRs.

The New Sony alpha SLT-A65V

Sony’s new alpha SLT-A65 looks remarkably similar to Sony’s first-generation fixed translucent mirror cameras, the SLT-A33 and SLT-A55, but in addition to a number of small and not-so-small improvements found on the new camera is the very same all-new 24.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor found in Sony’s flagship SLT-A77.
