Here's where you find the best of the best, our top digital cameras across the board.
Very good photo quality for its class plus decent performance make the Nikon D3300 A solid choice for a first dSLR.
It appeared under glass at CES 2014, but now it has specs, including a top sensitivity of ISO 409600
The new dSLR doesn't break any new ground, but has just enough controls to get you started.
While the camera still has the weather-sealed body and same basic design, almost everything else about the Pentax K-3 from sensor to control layout is different.
Don't want to buy a flash for your new dSLR just yet? For 100mm or longer lenses, this booster throws your pop-up flash's light beyond its normal reach.
The company consolidates its entry-level SLT line into a single model.
The Nikon D5300 is a great choice as a general-purpose dSLR.
With its new "classically styled" camera, Nikon hopes to woo still photographers saddled with dusty collections of old lenses, and eBay trollers.
While the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 is a perfectly reasonable entry-level dSLR, you can get the same photo and video quality in a smaller body for the same money (or less) by opting for a mirrorless interchangeable-lens model.
If you're just looking for better photo quality than a point-and-shoot on a really tight budget, but not better performance, the Sony Alpha A3000 meets that criterion.
