The digital SLR market is dominated by two players: Canon and Nikon. This is reflected in our August top rated list for digital cameras, with Pentax being the only other vendor getting a look in. We haven't included any Sony cameras in the list as we are yet to review any of the latest models, nor did we include the Olympus E-5, because we didn't rate it highly enough.
We haven't included Micro Four Thirds cameras or other types of mirror-less cameras in this list because they are not quite the same as a digital SLR -- we have a separate list for those cameras.
10 / 10
Canon's EOS 550D digital SLR is aimed at users new to the SLR scene, but it's a very capable camera for all types of shooting scenarios. It excels in dark conditions, it's great for portraits, and it can even be used for sporting and action shots. The Full HD video mode makes it a great hybrid camera for travellers, too.
