Planning to Buy a DSLR Camera? — Choose the Best Among the Rest

Owning a DSLR has become a trend these days. It is no longer a luxury rather it has turned out as a necessity to many.

If you are planning to buy a DSLR of your own for the very first time, then you better check some points out to get guided towards the right choice.

The very first thing to put light upon would be the brand of the DSLR. Which one to go for? Nikon or Canon? Very tough decision, isn’t it?

Brand is important when you are planning to buy a DSLR compared to a compact camera, as once you start purchasing lenses and accessories, it becomes rather expensive to switch. But that doesn’t mean one brand is better than the other. Nikon and Canon both make great DSLRs. May be, one year it will be like one brand would be beating out the competition with every camera they release—but the next year, the story might be completely different depending on the demand of course!

Before buying a DSLR you must check the speed and megapixels of the DSLR as per your choice.


Choosing a camera with good speed is essential for photographers as it is required to capture the very moment in your picture.


Mostly people buy cameras depending on megapixels — and that is a horrible way to proceed towards buying a new camera. But, that does not mean that they are not that essential. Megapixels determine how much resolution your camera has. Cameras with more megapixels produce higher resolution images, so you can print bigger photos or crop without ruining the condition of the photo. Megapixels are not as important as sensor size in determining image quality. More megapixels mean bigger image files.
