DSLR Cameras

DSLRs are generally considered the best type of camera for total control and high quality. Access all main settings directly and shoot in RAW format for full-resolution images that are completely editable. You’ll have the option to use all kinds of different lenses to achieve incredibly diverse shooting results, precisely and vividly.

DSLRs feature large image sensors, so you’re assured of high-resolution photos - look out for models with full frame for the ultimate in image quality. Many DSLRs allow you to capture RAW and JPEG images simultaneously, so you’ll have the choice of large or compact versions of each shot. View our great range of Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras and look out for these features.

For entry-level cameras with impressive processing power and remarkably high megapixel counts, take a look at the Nikon D3200 and Nikon D5200 , and for intelligent shooting with automatic scene selection and creative filters you might like the Canon 100D.

These cameras all feature a viewfinder, so you can see exactly what the lens is ‘seeing’ – compose each frame the way you want it. Focusing through an optical viewfinder can be quicker than using the camera’s screen, and is very useful in bright sunlight when it’s difficult to see the screen.

We offer many dedicated accessories for DSLRs too, including flash guns, battery grips, lens filters and tripods – to name a few.

Image Quality

DSLR cameras all feature large image sensors which produce very high image quality. Models with full frame sensors offer the ultimate in image quality, especially when you’re shooting in low light.

Lenses play an important part in image quality. The ‘f number’ represents how wide the aperture can be set, so lenses rated f/2.8, f/1.8 and lower let more light in, enabling the sensor to capture more detail. A wider aperture also allows you to achieve soft-focus background effects (bokeh).

Look out for the maximum ISO rating too: the higher the maximum ISO - e.g. 25600 - the more sensitive the camera sensor will be to light, producing better results in low light conditions.
