Because DSLRs often look very similar upon first glance, especially models from the same basic line, we developed our A vs. B comparison system to allow you to quickly peruse the basic differences, and similarities, both above and below the hood from model to model.
This will help you quickly find which ones suit your specific purposes and price range, after which you can use tools like our Comparometer to compare the basic image quality.
It could potentially cause a camera lockup when shooting in live view mode with image review enabled while using the ML-L3 remote control, but only after red-eye reduction was selected as the flash mode.

Sports photographer David Bergman has a few tips to help you improve your sports images, whether you're photographing professional athletes or your kids.
If you're looking for a new camera that is excellent for sports photography, check out Canon's 7D Mark II and new 1DX Mark II or Nikon's recent D500 and D5 cameras.
