Best Rated Full-Frame Digital DSLRs- This is a roundup of the top-rated full frame digital SLRs.. Full frame Digital SLRs have the same size imaging sensor as a frame of 35mm film (used in film SLRs). These type of SLRs are used by Professionals as they will give you a bigger and brighter viewfinder, more light sensitivity, and you can use 35mm film lenses without a conversion factor. Larger imagers also provide pictures with less noise. Compare the important features and reviews of the full frame SLRs listed below. Nikon’s Full Format cameras are called FX-format. All full frame DSLRs now have a high definition movie mode, while older models did not. Use of these DSLRs for movie making and TV shows has taken off, with recent movies using Canon DSLRs for many scenes or even shooting an entire movie and/or TV show. The light weight and small size make these cameras ideal for an independent filmmaker. Recent models now have the ability to monitor the audio with headphones.

The season finale of the show House was recently filmed with a Canon 5D Mark II using the HD 1080p 24fps mode.
