A dmit it; the best camera for a pro photographer is worlds apart from the best camera for sports nuts or adventurers. This is because they have features that are carefully crafted to fit their purpose. The bar goes up each year with the launch of new products. You can read about the two companies that have incessantly remained in the top list, Nikon and Canon. However, if your interest is to know the best 2 pro cameras in the world - irrespective of price - read on.
The best cameras today are the DSLRs because they have the most megapixels, of which you can read more, the largest sensors, and a range of lenses to choose from. The DSLRs in the market can be broken down into 3 categories: entry-level, semi-pro, and full frame. The first two have smaller sensors but can still reel in outstanding images. We have reviewed all the best pro cameras available in the market and these two edge out from the rest in both class and performance.
If you are searching for unbeatable imaging, Canon’s 5DS R is your best bet. Not only is it the best pro camera in 2017, it is also the most expensive. The smallest details will not miss your eyes. This makes it most suitable for landscape photography.
You’ll get an impressive 50.6 megapixels of resolution which is more than twice that of the Canon 5D Mark IV’s 20.2 megapixels. If you have image quality as your priority, you have all the excuse in the world to go for this model. If on the other hand, you intend to do more than still photography, you may find the 5DS R a little disappointing. This is because it lacks HDMI output and headphone sockets. On this premise, you may want to consider the 5D Mark IV. The latter has a host of modern features including a 4K video. But at 30.4 megapixels, it still lacks the details possible with the 5DS R.
Nikon’s D810 will quickly find its way into the heart of pro photographers for a host of reasons, including an improved battery life. It is undoubtedly the best Nikon DSLR in the market - until they unveil something new. You will get a powerful 36.3 megapixels. Although not as much as the 50.6 megapixels offered by the Canon 5DS R, it is still enough to capture the tiny details.
Since its release in 2014, there has been a crowd of competitors for the top spot. Canon’s release of the 50.6-megapixel 5DS R was a strong statement for competitors. Sony stepped up the game with the release of the Alpha a7R II with an impressive 42.4 megapixels. There is a rumor that Nikon is working on a full-frame mirrorless camera using NX1 technology from Samsung. It will be amazing to see how they quell the growing competition.
A great image makes post-processing easier and it is not surprising that the top pro cameras are stacking up the megapixels and processors for better image.
