Awe, shoot. Is it time to invest in a new camera already?

Whether your shutter speeds have been feeling slow, you have a trip coming up that you want to document with a better lens than an iPhone camera or you want to invest in a nicer option than a simple point-and-shoot — you’ve clicked on the right article.

Shutterbugs and amateur photographers alike can benefit from using a DSLR camera. The acronym stands for digital single-lens reflex, which is a type of digital camera that allows for the user to change the lenses depending on their photography needs. Picture a close-up lens for portraits, a long lens for nature photography and more. It also does have a mirror feature, unlike a mirrorless camera, that reflects the image back to you in the viewfinder to help get that perfect shot.

Unlike a point-and-shoot camera, you’ll want to do your research to find the best model that fits your needs. Or, rather, have us do the research and you read. We narrowed our search to bestselling options on Amazon, as there are hundreds of other tech shops out there and Amazon does a great job with brand variety while keeping the actual checkout process simple and streamlined.

Read on for all the best options Amazon has to offer, including Canon, Sony, Nikon and more.
