The Best Cameras for Wildlife Photography at Every Price

Wildlife photography can be a tremendously rewarding genre, but it can be a bit hard to break into due to the extreme equipment often required and thus, the high cost barrier to entry. Nonetheless, there are more affordable options that can allow you to partake in the genre without breaking the bank. This great video will show you some of the best camera options at every price point. 

Coming to you from DPReview TV, this helpful video will show you some of the best cameras for wildlife photography at every price level, including the Nikon P1000, Sony a7 IV, and Nikon Z9. All three of these cameras are impressively capable and would certainly serve you well, but don't forget that you can also buy used as well. For example, a Canon 1DX can be had for around $1,200 on the used market, and you can add a nice lens to match, all for a total less than the cost of many new mirrorless cameras. And don't forget that the 1DX was the camera of choice for many professionals for years, offering autofocus capabilities and burst rates that still compete with today's bodies, all in an incredibly rugged body. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
