Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III - ouch!

Um...R80 000 to take photographs that would fill up a billboard (or you could splash across the silver screen). Think I'll stick to my 7.2 mp shooter for now.

Pricey 21-Megapixel DSLR Captures Beaucoup Data

The super-honcho of DSLRs at 21.1 megapixels, this baby rivals monstrously pricier medium-format digitals in resolution and pummels them with its portability and ease of use. Dual Digic III processors handle the massive load of data collected by the full-frame CMOS sensor, and the resulting images make stunning large prints. The Mark III's lines approach equine elegance, and the user interface is downright refined.

WIRED Customizable one-touch menus. Outstanding battery life. Biggest, brightest viewfinder on the market. Internal sensor-cleaning system for speck-free pics.



9 out of 10

Samsung GX-20 $1,400
The love child of the Samsung-Pentax partnership is an easy-to-use 14.6-megapixel charmer.

Sony Alpha A350 $800
Sneaking up fast on the major players, thanks to ease of use and feature set. But shoot above ISO 800 and quality retreats just as fast.
