We will show you how to choose the best DSLR camera that meets your needs in the following aspects.
- Price: It’s a good start for purchasing anything you need. DSLRs price range in price from some quite affordable deals at the lower end to extremely high prices at the professional end. Set yourself a budget for your purchase early on but make sure that you keep in mind that you’ll need to consider other costs of owning one including: lenses, batteries, memory cards, camera bag, filters, extended warrantees, etc.
- Size: You need to know that DSLRs are all more sizeable than compact point and shoot cameras. But there are also DSLR cameras in different sizes. You need to know what size of the DSLR camera you want to get before you choose one.
- Resolution: The resolution will affect the video image quality. DSLRs come with a wide range of megapixel ratings. The resolution matters when you want truly HD video or regular videos. Megapixels come into play as you consider how you’ll use your images.

Meanwhile, what about the future upgrade? The actual features of DSLR cameras have would also play an important role in decision making.
Part 2. 2020 Top 10 DSLR Camera
We have collected our 2020 top 10 DSLR camera list below for you to take reference. You could view their details from their official websites.
1. Nikon D850
The Nikon D850 is a dream camera for landscape, architecture and studio photography needs. It has multiple advantageous features, including: 45.7 MP full-frame BSI CMOS sensor, a high-end autofocus system, low light autofocus sensitivity, an advanced 181,000-pixel RGB meter, fast EXPEED 5 processor, impressive 7 frames per second (fps) continuous shooting speed, MB-D18 battery grip and an amazing battery life, 4K full-frame video recording, focus stacking, tilting touch-enabled LCD screen, illuminated buttons, built-in WiFi and Bluetooth, weather-sealed construction and dual card slots, etc. It’s without doubt a wonderful choice.
2. Canon EOS Rebel SL3
The EOS Rebel SL3 (EOS 250D) features a 24 Megapixel sensor, fast Dual Pixel autofocus when using live view or taking video, a fully articulating touchscreen LCD and a ‘Feature Assistant’ that makes adjusting complex settings easy. It can capture 4K video (albeit with a substantial crop) and has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for easily sharing photos.
3. Nikon D7500
The Nikon D7500 inherits some features from the more expensive D500, including its 20 Megapixel sensor, improved metering system, tilting touchscreen LCD, weather-sealing and 4K video capture. While the live view experience isn’t nearly as robust as on Canon models, the D7500 is a clear winner when shooting through the viewfinder.
4. CANON EOS 7D MARK II
The 7D Mark II could be the camera of your dreams. It’s a superb all-rounder which features a 20.2 megapixel sensor and a host of excellent features to suit a variety of needs. It’s great for wildlife, sports and action photography with its fast 10fps shooting speed, while other subjects such as portraits and landscapes are also ideally suited for it. The 65-point AF system does an excellent job too, while the body is sturdy, well-built and is great to use.
5. NIKON D780
The D780 is, in many ways, a Nikon Z6 (mirrorless) camera inside a traditional DSLR body. It’s clearly been designed for those who crave the traditional handling and feel of a DSLR camera, rather than flipping to mirrorless. If you’ve got a whole cabinet full of DSLR lenses too, you’re also more likely to crave a DSLR for your next model, too.
6. Nikon D3500
D3500 is the best DSLR camera for beginners, as it has guides to explain its more advanced features, but it will shoot great photos in almost any situation. While it has many of the same features as its predecessor (the D3400), including a 24.3-MP APS-C image sensor, the Nikon D3500 has a faster processor and a refreshed design that makes it easier to use.
7. Canon EOS 90D
The EOS 90D is a well-built mid-range DSLR with an all-new 32.5 Megapixel sensor that produces excellent-quality images. While autofocus when using the optical viewfinder isn’t amazing, live view AF is excellent. The camera can capture 4K video with no crop, and features a fully articulating touchscreen LCD and both mic and headphone sockets.
8. NIKON D500
Nikon D500 is quite probably the best APS-C DSLR currently available to buy on the market. This solidly built camera is the perfect choice for those who like to shoot a little bit of everything. It’s got a fast frame rate, which makes it ideal for sports, action and wildlife, while it can also handle landscapes, portraits and events with aplomb.
9. CANON EOS 250D
While you can probably find better mirrorless cameras than the 250D at its price point, if you’re keen to stick with a traditional DSLR, this is a good one to go for. If you’re looking for your first “proper” camera, but don’t want to go too mahoosive, this also has the honor of being the world’s smallest DSLR (to feature an articulating screen). It’s still got a good range of dials and buttons, so it doesn’t feel too cramped though.
10. Canon 6D Mark II
It took Canon five years to bring us an upgrade to its entry-level full-framer, during which time the camera market was almost unrecognizable, with more compact system cameras (including full-frame models) than ever before. Never-the-less, for those who like to stick to the tried and tested way of doing things, the 6D Mark II is a good option for those looking for their first full-frame DSLR. 6D Mark II gets a 26.2 megapixel full-frame sensor, a much-improved AF system (when compared to the original 6D) and an articulating touch-sensitive screen. There are some things which seem to be lacking for a modern camera, such as 4K video.
