  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.7 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 17 reviews

The Bottom Line: Though it doesn't rank first based on any individual aspect of the camera, the Nikon D5100 delivers a solid combination of image quality, performance, features, and design that puts it out in front if you're looking for a well-rounded option under $1,000. Read review

Product overview
Sony Alpha DSLR-A500 (Body Only)

The Bottom Line: Cheaper and with better photo quality than its sibling, the Sony Alpha DSLR-A500's quirky design is the only real flaw in an otherwise solid entry-level model with fast Live View shooting and a useful tilting LCD. Read review

Specs: SLR, 12.3 megapixels, 15.6 x 23.5mm, Exmor CMOS, Optical (SteadyShot INSIDE)

Pentax K-30 (body only, White)

Specs: SLR, 16.3 megapixels, 15.7 x 23.7mm, CMOS, Optical (image sensor shift mechanism)

Canon EOS 30D (Body Only) Reviewed on March 21, 2006 Check prices
Product overview
Canon EOS 30D (Body Only)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.6 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 22 reviews

The Bottom Line: An excellent midrange digital SLR, the 30D has given way to its even more excellent successor, the 40D. However, it remains a great choice if you can find it at a good price. Read review

Specs: SLR, 8.2 megapixels, 15.0 x 22.5mm, CMOS

  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 115 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT is an exceptionally small and lightweight camera designed for amateur digital SLR photographers, but it delivers the responsiveness and image quality you'd expect from a semipro model. Read review

Specs: SLR, 8 megapixels, 3 x, 14.8 x 22.2mm, CMOS

Product overview
Sony Alpha DSLR-A380 (with 18-55mm lens)

The Bottom Line: While the Sony Alpha DSLR-A380 is a solid inexpensive dSLR with a few nice features that will probably satisfy many shooters, it doesn't deliver quite enough on any front to outshine competitors. Read review

Specs: SLR, 14.2 megapixels, 3 x, 15.7 x 23.5mm, CCD, Optical (SteadyShot INSIDE)

      Overall score: 7.0 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 reviews

Nikon D3000 (18mm-55mm VR lens)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.3 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 25 reviews

Canon EOS Rebel T3i (Body Only) Reviewed on March 22, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Canon EOS Rebel T3i (Body Only)

The Bottom Line: For the money, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i is a great choice for dSLR videographers--though the cheaper T2i can still suffice if you don't need the articulated LCD--and it's a solid choice for creative still shooters. But though the image quality and general shooting performance are top-notch, if you're upgrading to capture sports, kids, or pets, the T3i may not be able to keep up. Read review

Specs: SLR, 18 megapixels, 14.9 x 22.3mm, CMOS

Canon EOS Rebel SL1 (Body Only) Reviewed on June 14, 2013 Check prices
Product overview
Canon EOS Rebel SL1 (Body Only)

The Bottom Line: While the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 is a perfectly reasonable entry-level dSLR, you can get the same photo and video quality in a smaller body for the same money (or less) by opting for a mirrorless interchangeable-lens model. Read review
