Last updated on 02/08/2010
If photography has become a serious hobby, or perhaps even a potential career, these cameras will fit the bill. Digital SLR cameras require attention and patience, but your reward will be stunning photographs that could easily hang on the wall of a museum or in the pages of a glossy magazine. dSLRs range from affordable, entry-level models to tremendous high-end models intended for professionals. Below, you'll find our selection of the best and most accessible digital SLRs for consumers, cameras that strike a fine balance between cutting-edge technology and bang-for-your-buck value.
Keep in mind that most of the prices below are for the body only -- unless we've indicated otherwise, they don't come with a flash, lens, or bag. New dSLR owners will need to invest extra cash in their rig at first, but it will certainly be worth the cost in the long run.
