Once you know the amount you’re willing to pay, you can actually narrow your choices down to quite a bit and trust me, it helps. The budget also helps in the determination of other factors which you will learn about as you keep reading.

Lenses 


One of the most important characteristics to consider when choosing your ideal DSLR is its compatible system of lenses. Lenses are the most important tools for elevating the actual quality of an image or a video and can decide whether a photograph/ video has been rendered professionally or not.

Since the choice of a camera directly affects the type of lenses being used, this is the first crucial step after the budget. Lenses often end up being the constant investment over time regarding photography equipment, with camera bodies fluctuating more quickly.

Speed and Performance


Speed, as well as the performance of a camera, is also necessary, although nowadays most of the cameras are moreover fast for any casual work. Interchangeable camera lenses are mirrorless or cameras have started providing better performance than compact cameras as they take more pictures per second and focus faster.

Though there may be few compact cameras that provide better features than DSLRs,  everyone wants a camera that can ensure more work is done with less time taken hence, a camera with a good processor and other features need to be considered so that it doesn’t hamper your work time.

Interchangeable Lens


The interchangeable lens is another aspect that may be equally important. The features of a camera do differentiate it from one another but the camera which provides you to change lenses does provide you with an edge over other cameras as it provides the user various innovative options to choose from and improves the quality of your work.

Size and Weight


No matter how good a photographer you are, the size and weight of the camera still affect the performance of the user. It gets difficult to carry the camera around. If you have a bulky camera, it may result in capturing a few images. Whereas if the camera would be light, it may be easy to capture images.

Hence, while purchasing a camera, one must consider the size and weight as well while looking at other features.

Image Stabilization


This is yet another important aspect to be considered before purchasing a laptop. Image stabilization helps remove blur from the photographs by shifting the lens physically. As it gets difficult to capture images with long lenses, thus, this feature helps a lot in getting a good shot.

One of the most useful assets for many photographers is some form of image stabilization which helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake caused by lengthy shutter speeds or longer focal lengths.

There are two main types of image stabilization available: lens-shift type image stabilization and sensor-shift type image stabilization. Depending on the manufacturer, some prefer to incorporate the necessary stabilization systems within the lenses, whereas other manufacturers prefer to incorporate in-camera image stabilization.

In-camera image stabilization is more beneficial as any mounted lens effectively becomes stabilized and reaps the benefits of the system for more effective handheld shooting capabilities.

Incorporation of image stabilization within select lens designs is beneficial in the sense that it can be tailored specifically for a certain lens to maximize stabilization performance, and is subsequently more effective than body-based stabilization.

Megapixel Resolution


Although, the talk of the town is always how many megapixels a camera has and most advertisements and media focus on the number of megapixels the camera supports, but in reality, the megapixel count is relatively unimportant when buying a digital SLR. In theory, the number of megapixels in an image file dictates the size to which it can be printed.

However, you can produce excellent A3-sized prints from a 5- or 6-megapixel DSLR camera – provided the original shot was correctly exposed and edited. Furthermore, an 8-megapixel sensor has only 30% more photosites than a 6-megapixel sensor. At the correct viewing distance for A3 prints, this difference will be negligible.

Few photo enthusiasts are likely to want prints bigger than A3+ size, which is well within the capabilities of all current models.

Sensor Size 


As far as the quality and the exposure flexibility of a picture are to be examined – and these are the main reasons people buy SLR cameras – the most important criteria are the size of the sensor and the size of each photosite on it. The larger the photosite’s surface area, the more light it can capture and the more information it can record.

The more information that goes to the camera’s image processor, the greater the dynamic (tonal) range in the resulting image – and the better the picture quality. The differences are most obvious in shots taken in bright, contrasty conditions and dim lighting.

In bright lighting, the small sensors of compact digicams cannot record details in the brightest and darkest areas. The resulting pictures have blocked-up shadows and blown-out highlights and, when no detail is recorded, there is no way to tweak the image to improve the situation.

Most cameras have either a 3.0-inch or, more recently, a 3.2-inch monitor, with resolutions ranging from 230k-dot to well over one million pixels. The higher the resolution, the sharper and brighter the image will be on the monitor.

Many monitors also come in various designs that allow the screen to be positioned in such a way that it can be used from high or low angles without you having to crawl on the ground; or simply point and shoot from higher angles. If you already know that these might be required by you, do look for such monitors.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the most affordable professional camera?

The Canon EOS 1500D is, according to me, one of the most affordable professional cameras. Priced a little over 40,000 Rupees, the camera is a great buy. Looking at some of the advantages, the camera has fast autofocus which will allow the user to quickly find the perfect frame. Needless to say that it is easy to use and has a good battery backup. It provides various modes. However, there are some disadvantages, there is no shortcut or assigned button to change the F stop (aperture). Also, the white balance feature isn’t good. So, if you can work those things out, this is a decent option.

2. Do professional photographers use autofocus?

Some professional photographers might claim that they do not use autofocus. But eventually, most of them do.  When you see something worth capturing, you need to be able to focus quickly and accurately. If your camera can’t keep up, you’re going to keep missing your shots and getting frustrated with photography. Therefore, autofocus is a great tool and aid while taking photographs of things that are on the move. Unless you want to take photographs of really still images, you could go for a good autofocus camera which will be a boon, trust me.

3. What is the best professional camera for beginners?

With the advancement in technology, the manufacturers have stormed the market with more and more cameras which makes it difficult for buyers/beginners to select a particular option, there are various features which are taken into consideration before selecting a particular camera, be it the budget, iso, shutter speed, viewfinder, weight, SLR  or image quality. Hence, here is the option which a beginner can buy: Nikon D3500 - it was released during the spring of 2020 with a budget-friendly price and also provides refreshing improvements in the tried and tested 24MP package with faster bursts, better video, and upgraded autofocusing.

4. What is considered a professional camera?

In the given article you will find 10 professional cameras best for a user which also mentions the various features which people look for while choosing a camera. There are various features which a buyer should look for while buying a professional camera for videos like stabilization, focusing system- preferably autofocus, flash, monitors and viewfinders, ISO Range, max video resolution, size, weight, battery life, crop factor, ports, slow motion and lens mount. The sensor size and video recording feature also denote whether a camera is professional or not.

5. Is Canon better or Nikon?

Well, this is a question which is very difficult to answer, both Canon and Nikon have good brand names and any beginner would be happy by having a camera of either brand. Usually, in most circumstances, a professional should prefer a Nikon camera as it’s cheaper and the settings, functioning and terminology are simpler than Canon thus making it a more preferred camera. Whenever one brand upgrades its features, then the other brand catches up simultaneously, giving a tough competition.
