Best Camera for DSLR Shooters Looking to Upgrade
With its powerful 32.5 megapixel APS-C sensor and rugged dependability, the EOS 90D is ideal for enthusiasts looking for high performance in an easy-to-use package.
Delivering lightning-fast continuous shooting at 10 frames per second with full autofocus tracking (via the optical viewfinder), it’s perfect for sports and wildlife photography. It’s also capable of 11 frames per second during Live View shooting with fixed autofocus.
This capable DSLR is made even more versatile with its 3" vari-angle LCD touch screen, allowing for intuitive functionality in any shooting situation. Enjoy fast focusing even in dimly-lit situations with high dynamic ISO sensitivity up to ISO 25,600. Or pop up the built-in flash to capture those one-off moments that arise without warning.
The EOS 90D is packed with powerful video features too. Shoot cinematic footage in crispy 4K, or switch to Full HD and 120 frames per second to capture silky smooth slow motion shots.
This is a great all-rounder whether you’re upgrading or planning your first foray into DSLR photography.
