Canon 90D: A Crop DSLR with 4K Video and 32MP Photos for Dental Photography


If you’re looking for a new DSLR for your dental work, the time has come

The Canon EOS 90D is out now! After weeks of rumors, we can finally reveal all the details.

What do we get? Quite a lot. A brand new 32.5-megapixel sensor with more resolution than any other APS-C camera and uncropped 4K video for the first time in Canon’s APS-C camera range, as well as 10fps continuous shooting (11fps in Live View).

According to Canon, the EOS 90D is built on the design of the EOS 80D, with a familiar body and a large grip for better balance and handling with larger lenses. You will also find twin multi-function dials, including one newly-created multi-controller on the back, lifted from already known Canon’s pro DSLRs. The EOS 80D was one of the Canon’s best-sellers and favourite camera of dental photographers, so this feature looks great.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF system makes the EOS 90D as fast and as flexible as any mirrorless camera. What’s more to check is if its accuracy will help with focusing on objects with lower contrast, like teeth.

Canon EOS 90D: who should buy it?

In our opinion this DSLR is one of the best choices for anyone who values quality. It will make a good choice for the beginners in dental photography, but the experienced ones should be satisfied, too. The EOS 90D, with its features and price, is as good as a full-frame camera, even with its smaller sensor.

Canon EOS 90D availability and price

Good news:  The price isn’t so fantastic, though: it comes for $1199.00 body-only. But when it comes to high quality, money is no object, right?
