Is there a budding photographer in your life that you still haven’t picked up a Christmas gift for? Why not get them a brand new digital camera to play around with? It’ll be the perfect way for that special someone to kick off the New Year with a new focus on their craft. Plus, you’ll almost certainly be anointed the king or queen of gifting.
If you’re not sure where to start when searching for a top-notch digital camera, look no further than Canon. They’re generally considered the cream of the crop these days and for good reason. Take the EOS 5D Mark IV, for example, which has been topping numerous 2016 best of lists in camera technology.
The 5D series has always been something of a gold standard, but the Mark IV really ups the ante with a new 30.4 Megapixel full frame sensor. It also boasts a 61-point autofocus system and Dual Pixel CMOS AF for smooth, crisp shooting, whether it’s still images or video. The DIGIC 6+ Image Processor also allows for continuous shooting up to a whopping 7.0 frames per second. For the professional photographer in your life, this is a must-have.
While the 5D is truly remarkable, it can also seem pretty daunting for more novice photographers. In that case, check out the EOS M3 instead. It still has the superior performance you’d expect from Canon but in a far more compact and manageable package. The 24.2 Megapixel APS-C sized CMOS sensor isn’t something to shake your fist at. And since it’s compatible with an enormous range of EF and EF-S lenses and Speedlites, the M3 can easily adapt to whatever kind of photographing that is required.
The best part is that you won’t even have to splurge as much as you think. Canon’s Best in Glass sale is on until January 5, so all of these cameras are at extremely discounted prices. Surprise someone this holiday season with a gift they can put into action.
