There are different photographers who are passionate about taking wildlife photographs. There are some that they prefer over the others. The most common brand that these photographers use is Nikon. They particularly prefer Nikon D500 DX-Format Digital SLR. This camera comes with a lot of features that can make taking photographs easier to do. Of course, it will still come down to people’s different preferences.

There are some that would like Canon 7D Mark II better. Some may also prefer the Sony A77II DSLR camera. Aside from the proper camera, it will always be a plus for these photographers to use different tools and equipment to improve the quality of the photos that they take.

If you want to pursue wildlife photography, your smartphone or your beginner’s DSLR kit will not be enough to capture the wildlife. First and the most important equipment you should have is a telephoto lens. Telephoto lenses allow you to take closer pictures of your subjects such as a herd of lions or giraffes while you are in a safe distance.

The cameras that can help you have a good wildlife portfolio are the Sony a9 mirrorless camera and the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II DSLR among the recommended wildlife cameras. The Sony A9 can capture 20 frames per second, capturing almost every movement of your subject. The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is the fastest DSLR that can capture 14 frames per second.
