Well……..I guess I have to take back my recommendation for the Canon DSLR that I most recommend for dental offices, as Canon has just announced the release of it’s newest, the EOS Rebel T2i (or the 550D, as it’s known outside the USA). With many of the features of their newest semi-pro DSLR, the Canon 7D, this new camera is truly a perfect fit for dental offices.
Lightweight, an incredible 18 megapixel sensor (still 1.6x crop of course), with genuine 1080i HD video recording capability (and I can tell you that the HD video I capture with my 7D is simply superb) for recording patient live testimonials, you really can’t go wrong. And with the features it has, this would be a fantastic camera to take on vacation, to family outings, kids’ sporting events, etc. Paired with a Canon 60mm f/2.8 macro or a Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens and the Canon MR-14EX ring flash, as discussed in a previous blog entry about Canon DSLR set-ups for dental offices, and you are set.
