Choosing a camera for wildlife photography used to mean selecting from a small group of professional-level cameras that had both the speed & the telephoto lens options needed to capture close-up views of fast-moving subjects. Today, there’s a much wider range of models that can meet the needs of wildlife photographers, including mirrorless systems that have sầu some advantages over traditional DSLRs.

Many mirrorless cameras offer faster-than-DSLR continuous shooting speeds when using their electronic (as opposed to mechanical) shutters. While some mirrorless cameras also include a mechanical shutter, electronic shutters have the added benefit of totally silent operation, a decided advantage for wildlife photography when you’re trying not lớn disturb your subject. And as mirrorless camera makers and third-tiệc nhỏ lens manufacturers continue to expand the lens options available, there are now many choices in the super-tele range, including affordable zooms and premium primes, plus teleconverters that can get you lớn focal lengths equivalent to lớn 1200milimet and beyond.

Battery life remains an advantage for DSLRs, but, overall, the performance gaps between DSLR and mirrorless cameras have closed. What’s important is that the camera you choose has the tốc độ và autofocus precision khổng lồ keep up with the action và the lens options you need for your favorite subjects. Depending on your photographic style, the end use of your images, and your budget for equipment, there are many terrific cameras—both DSLR and mirrorless—that are up khổng lồ the challenge of wildlife photography.


Read on to lớn learn about the most important features to lớn consider when choosing a camera for wildlife photography or skip ahead to lớn see our top picks.

Cameras For Wildlife Photography: Full Frame, APS or Micro Four Thirds?

Telephoto lớn lenses are one of the most important requirements for wildlife photography, bringing you close-up views of your subjects while allowing you khổng lồ remain at a safe & respectful distance.

Though larger full-frame sensors are in some respects superior lớn smaller APS-C sensors, the magnification factor of a smaller sensor enhances the telephokhổng lồ reach of your lenses. For example, comparing a 20-megapx full-frame camera with a 20-megapixel APS-C camera, the APS-C Model will give you approximately 1.5x magnification of your lens’ focal length, making a 400mm lens equivalent to a 600mm lens. Keep in mind that this advantage assumes you’re comparing two cameras with the same resolution, as a full-frame image from a higher-resolution camera can be cropped for a similar result.

Micro Four Thirds sensors offer even greater magnification of 2x. This allows OM Digital Solutions (formerly Olympus) và Panasonic khổng lồ kiến thiết lighter, more compact telephoto lớn lenses for their Micro Four Thirds cameras compared to zooms and primes with equivalent focal lengths for larger-sensor cameras. The Olympus M.ZUIKO ED 300mmF4.0 IS PRO is an excellent example. It’s equivalent khổng lồ a 600milimet prime on a full-frame camera—but at 3.7 inches in diameter, 8.9 inches in length & 2.8 pounds, this lens is just a little over half the kích thước and more than 60 percent lighter than the AF-S NIKKOR 600milimet f/4E FL ED VR (6.5-inch diameter, 17 inches in length & 8.4 pounds). The Olympus lens is also roughly one-fifth of the price at $2,899 versus the Nikon at $12,299. The point is that smaller-sensor cameras vì chưng offer an advantage of lighter, more compact lenses. For many photographers, any tradeoff in overall image quality due to a smaller sensor is acceptable in exchange for the portability—và relative sầu affordability—of these systems.

Learn how lớn get the best results with your telephoto lớn lenses for wildlife photography.

Autofocus Performance

For wildlife action, AF tốc độ and accuracy are prime considerations. Definitive sầu numerical ratings aren’t available for AF performance, but higher-kết thúc cameras typically deliver better AF performance than entry-cấp độ bodies, and newer models with the most up-to-date AF công nghệ improve sầu upon earlier models.


More AF points are potentially an advantage, but evaluate the entire AF system. Cross-type points provide additional information to the AF processor và, therefore, improved accuracy. Algorithms and processor capabilities also play a major role—newer AF systems with fewer AF points và more powerful processors will potentially outperkhung older systems with more AF points.

Technologies like AI-based subject recognition và machine learning are making their way into lớn autofocus systems, enabling features lượt thích intelligent subject tracking. While cameras with focus-tracking capabilities can greatly enhance your chances of success, they’re not infallible, so it’s good to lớn be able khổng lồ fall baông xã to lớn basic technique & an understanding of your camera’s available settings. review your camera’s instructions for recommendations on AF mode selection and experiment to lớn see which work best for your style of shooting & favorite subjects.

Your lens choice also has an impact on autofocus performance. The AF system operates with the lens wide open at its maximum aperture. When you activate the shutter, the lens then closes down to lớn your selected aperture immediately before the shutter opens. Most AF systems require a minimum aperture of ƒ/5.6, which usually isn’t a problem. However, if you use a teleconverter to extend your focal length, you’re also reducing the effective sầu maximum aperture of your lens—the stronger the teleconverter’s strength, the greater this reduction—making an AF system that’s compatible with apertures of ƒ/8 or smaller preferable for telephokhổng lồ work.

Professional telephoto lenses have sầu faster motors and smarter AF algorithms, as well as finer optics than lower-over lenses. They’re more durable, with better sealing against weather và dust. They also cost a lot more & are much larger and heavier—but that’s the price of superior performance.


Frames Per Second & Max Burst

While ultra-fast continuous capture rates aren’t absolutely critical for all wildlife photography, they’re certainly very beneficial, especially for fast-moving subjects. More frames per second increase your chances of recording the perfect behavior, gesture or wing position for moving wildlife. Pro wildlife photographer và “Wild By Nature” columnist Melissa Groo recommends 8 fps as a minimum continuous shooting rate, a spec that all of the cameras in this article meet or exceed. Keep in mind that the maximum continuous shooting rate of your camera may depend on the AF mode you select. When following moving subjects, you’ll (ideally) want a camera that can capture 8 fps or faster in continuous AF mode, rather than single AF where the focus is locked on the first frame.In addition to frames per second, the number of frames that can be recorded in a single burst is also important. To take full advantage of your camera’s tốc độ, use the fastest-rated memory cards that your camera supports.

ISO Equivalence

For optimal image chất lượng, it’s always preferable to lớn mix lower ISOs, but wildlife photography often means shooting in low-light conditions near dawn & dusk when higher ISOs are needed. Considering the minimum aperture requirements of AF systems, plus the creative sầu flexibility of selecting the right aperture for your desired depth of field, cameras that offer wider ISO ranges provide an advantage for wildlife photography. Though noise increases at higher ISOs, it’s better khổng lồ compromise with noise than with sharpness—or not getting the shot at all.More light translates khổng lồ less noise, và larger sensors collect more light due khổng lồ their increased surface area. That’s one reason why full-frame cameras are able khổng lồ offer comparably higher ISO equivalents & provide better image unique at higher ISO settings than smaller sensors.

What Are The Best Cameras For Wildlife Photography?

Following is a selection of current DSLRs & mirrorless cameras that we recommkết thúc for wildlife photography. While not a definitive sầu danh sách, these models are excellent options from their respective sầu makers. When selecting a camera, also consider the telephoto lenses & teleconverters available for the models you’re evaluating.
