Photographers Shooting a Basketball Game From the Sidelines or the Great Wildebeest Migration in the Masai Mara, One'll Want a Camera With a Lens That's Fast Enough to Catch All of the Action

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - February 26, 2016) - Whether one is shooting a basketball game from the sidelines or the great wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara, you're going to want a camera with a lens that's fast enough to catch all of the action. While some prefer the flexibility of an interchangeable-lens system with a large sensor, others dislike the bulk and weight of the gear involved. Fortunately for us all, technology is catching up to those of us who want a small camera with a large sensor and the ability to change lenses. Whatever your preference may be -- below is a list of ten cameras recommended for sports, wildlife, and action photography for your adventures in 2016.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark II DSLR
The EOS-1D X Mark II is the flagship model within Canon's DSLR lineup, and is characterized by its robust processing capabilities and ability to enable a high-end multimedia workflow. At the heart of the imaging system is a full-frame 20.2MP CMOS sensor and dual DIGIC 6+ image processors, which contribute to fast continuous shooting rates up to 16 fps in live view, 14 fps with full-time AF and AE, and an expanded sensitivity range from ISO 50-409600.
