Canon Digital SLRs

The Canon Digital SLR range can be split into three different sections. The first covers more basic models. These are aimed at people looking for their first Digital SLR or who are perhaps upgrading from an earlier model.

The next section covers cameras at a more intermediate level. These cameras will appeal to more advanced photographers who could be serious hobbyists or semi professionals. Typical enhancements over the entry level models include being able to shoot at faster burst rates.

At the top end of the range are cameras aimed at the professional. Compared to other Digital SLRs these will usually offer faster burst rates, more megapixels and much better build quality for use in the field.
