Whether you are a professional or an amateur photographer, at some point you will have always wished that you had a DLSR camera, to help you with that dream capture. Choosing the right camera to pursue your passion can surely become a grueling task thanks to the list of features your camera should be ideally possessing and the number of options available in the market today to fit into that list.

Reasons to choose Canon DSLR for Photography
One strong reason to go in for a DSLR camera is the image quality. DSLRs have large sized image sensors that can accommodate larger pixel sizes with lesser grain and faster shutter speeds. The controls, speed, adaptability and the stability provided by the DSLRs are unmatchable. Canon has a range of digital cameras, entry-level DSLRs, midrange and budget cameras that come packed with features and at a reasonable budget. For beginners, these could be of great help.

You could begin your purchase by comparing the resolution and censors of different cameras to support your choice. The resolution in DSLRs can range from 5 megapixels up to 18 megapixels. As the resolution goes higher, there is improvised quality and so is the price. So depending on the purpose you want your camera to serve and the level of experience you hold, you can settle down on an appropriate resolution.

Size is another important factor you will have to keep in mind while purchasing a camera. Most of the high-end DSLRs for professionals are heavy. So if you see yourself still learning the photography tricks, or would be travelling often, a small and lighter model can come handy.

Most of the Canon cameras are designed to be used for different purposes. Low light photography, sports photography, macro photography, would in most cases require special cameras. So at the time of purchase, look for the different mode settings in your Canon camera, such that all of the above are encapsulated in a single piece.

Though the LCD screen size would not really change the way you shoot, you might appreciate the benefits of being able to view your captures instantly on a larger screen. If this is one of your criteria, there are DSLRs by Canon that support a huge screen size.

Accessories for your canon photography camera
After you have set yourself a budget and decided on a camera, you must know that there could be additional costs you will have to incur. This would include if you wish to either upgrade the lenses after a while, buy spare batteries if you indulge in extensive photography while travelling, buy memory cards to accommodate the varying size, want to invest in tripods for long hours of still photography and certain other accessories.
