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.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II

The Canon EOS 5D Mark II is well suited to photographers who want to crop in to fine details in their photos, or who just want to shoot and print very large landscapes and portraits. We do wish some of its controls were better implemented, but it's not hard to use once you get used to it.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
