Gizmag’s 2013 High-End DSLR Comparison Guide Is Your Go To DSLR Guide

There is a simple fact of the DSLR world: there are a lot of them. Between the long lines from Canon, Nikon and Sony there are more than enough to make your head spin. So it’s great when guides like the one Gizmag has created show up, because we get the same question of “Which DSLR should I buy?”  or “Which DSLR is right for me?”. Well, Gizmag’s High-End DSLR Comparison Guide should help you make that decision.


They compare a handful of cameras: the Nikon D610, the Nikon Df, the Canon EOS 6D, the Sony SLT-A99, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, and the Nikon D800. Gizmag mentions that “…all of those in our line-up are full frame devices. This is because in the DSLR world, the term “high-end” is increasingly meaning full frame, and those cameras are best compared only with each other”. So this comparison is a specific one for those looking to match themselves with one of the best DSLRs on the market.

They compare each camera on several factors, telling you which one excels best in that category, and how they potentially measure up to the others in the list. In comparing, Gizmag looked at the following criteria:

  • Size
  • Weight
  • Sensor Size
  • Megapixel Count
  • Autofocus
  • FPS Burst Rate
  • ISO Range
  • Viewfinder
  • Monitor
  • Storage Media
  • File Type
  • Construction
  • Video Modes
  • Audio
  • Wireless Capabilities
  • Kit Lens
  • Lens Mount
  • Price

To say it’s an extensive list of criteria is an understatement, and Gizmag has really gone to great lengths to be as thorough as possible. It’s a great guide worth checking out for those already a little bit in the know on cameras in general.
