Top rated digital SLR cameras: August 2011

Here are the 10 best digital SLR cameras for August 2011

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.

Canon EOS 60D

Canon's EOS 60D digital SLR camera is a joy to use in all photography situations. It's fast, it performs very well in the dark, it takes crisp and vibrant pictures, and it offers plenty of physical improvements over the 50D. In fact, it gives you plenty of reasons not to go for the more expensive EOS 7D! However, we do think that its buttons could be a lot better; they are almost flush with the body and feel too squishy.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
