DSLR Camera Reviews & Books

Camera gear, and thus reviews, is typically handled on Thom's sites specific to the type of gear (mirrorless, DSLR, film). DSLR camera reviews are covered on dslrbodies.com. Also, if I have a book for a camera, you'll find a (red) link to that here, as well. 

DSLR Camera Reviews

A lot of people want some quick recommendations. Generally I recommend that you stick with the brand of camera you've been using. That said, here are current mirrorless cameras I usually recommend to people:

Crop Sensor (APS-C)

  • Canon — 90D
  • Nikon — D7500 or D500
  • Pentax — upcoming K-3 Mark III

Why those specific models? While you can buy lesser models, these are basically the state of the art for APS-C DSLRs, and because of the decline in the market, likely to remain that way. 

What does Thom use? I'm down to the D500, mostly because it pairs well with my D6 for sports or with my D850 for wildlife. 

Full Frame

  • Canon — 1DX Mark III, 5D Mark IV
  • Nikon — D780, D850, D6

Why those specific models? All of these are absolute workhorse cameras, capable of almost any job you'd throw at them. They represent the "best of DSLRs."

What does Thom use? Mostly the Nikon D850 and D6. The D850 still makes it out for landscape and nature work, the D6 is used mostly for sports.
