Snap up a discount on high-end cameras from Nikon, Sony and Canon.

The holidays never last as long as you want them to, so it's important to take plenty of happy snaps to preserve the memories for when the toils of day-to-day life start to wipe them from your mind. In this era of high-tech smartphones capable of shooting 4K photos and videos, it might seem like the traditional camera is destined for the dustbin, but there are still plenty of reasons to choose a dedicated digital camera over the one built-in to your iPhone.

With a standalone DSLR camera, not only do you get better picture quality at higher resolutions, you can swap lenses in and out to suit the photo you're taking, allowing you to customise your kit for long-distance shots, panoramic views or close-ups that don't skimp on the minute details. Add to that the ability to control specific settings like shutter speed, aperture diameter and exposure length, and a good DSLR still trumps the best phone cameras by a country mile.

High-quality photography doesn't come cheap and DSLRs are often a ways out of the price range for the average camera enthusiast. However, with post-Christmas sales in full effect right now you can find some solid discounts on popular DSLRs from Nikon, Canon and Sony, making it the ideal time to kickstart your photography career. Check out the table below for our top picks on DSLR deals from this year's Boxing Day sales.
