Best high-end digital SLRs for pros and enthusiasts

The best digital SLR cameras from Canon, Nikon and Sony that are suitable for professionals and well-off enthusiasts

If you have aspirations of being a professional photographer, then you need to get yourself a professional camera. Professional cameras have a full frame sensor, powerful processors, a stack of manual controls and they excel in low-light situations when you use a high ISO setting. The brands to consider if you want a professional camera are Canon, Nikon and Sony. Here are five of the best that we've reviewed to date.

Sony A900 (DSLR-A900)

Anyone looking to make the step up to a full-frame D-SLR should make a point of trying out the Sony A900. It's a great camera to use and its performance on location and in the studio was excellent.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
