    Canon’s update to the popular EOS 5D was a lock in the ultra-competitive Digital SLR category this year. The EOS 5D Mark II has a 21.1-megapixel, full-frame CMOS sensor with a DIGIC 4 image processor, Live View shooting and HD video capture at 1080p. This is one of the most sought after cameras on the market today and those who have them love them, those who are waiting for there order to be filled are waiting anxiously after some initial delays from Canon in shipment.

    In the under $1,000 category there was a tie between the Nikon D90 and the Canon EOS Rebel Xsi, both extraordinary leaps forward in Digital SLR technology with different features creating this stalemate in the minds of this years panel.

    The Nikons D90 is the first Nikon DSLR to incorporate HD video. Inspired by and similar to Nikon’s DSLR’s, the D90 has Nikon’s exclusive Scene Recognition System and advanced exposure controls. The D90 has also been getting rave reviews for color reproduction as well as its noise reduction.

    The EOS Rebel Xsi combined the latest DSLR technology and made it as simple to use as there PowerShot series of point-and-shoot digital cameras. Featuring an integrated cleaning system, a live view feature, DIGIC III image processing, a 3” LCD, and a 12.2 megapixel CMOS sensor more than make up for lack of HD video capability.
