What is the best DSLR for beginners?

There are a ton of DSLRs out there from various companies. Some are cheap, some are expensive. Some have a lot of features, while others have few.

There are so many things that you need to take into consideration when buying a camera. This often makes it difficult for beginners to decide which one to go for.

Don’t worry; you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be giving you a list of things to look out for when buying a camera. This will help you decide what kind of camera you should go for.

 

Pricing:

As a beginner, you most likely don’t want anything very expensive. Depending on your budget, you shouldn’t go for any camera over 1000 bucks.

What you need is a simple inexpensive camera which you can use to get yourself familiar with photography.

Here are some cameras you might want to check out:

Panasonic Lumix FZ80

Canon EOS Rebel T7

Nikon D5600

 

Lenses:

This part is very important when buying a camera. You need a lens that you can use for mostly any type of photography. At the same time you need a lens that is affordable.

Let’s assume that your budget for buying a camera is $1000. You’ve probably spent let’s say $500 on the camera body.

This means that you lens can’t be anything more than $400 (we haven’t added taxes at this point, and we still need a memory card).

Here are some lenses you might be interested in:

Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G

Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6

Canon EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6

Note: Do keep in mind that not all lenses work on all cameras.

 

Memory cards

When picking a memory card for your camera, you don’t need a crazy amount of storage. 64 gigabytes to 256 gigabytes should be enough.

Suggested memory cards:

SanDisk 64GB Ultra SDXC UHS-I Memory Card

SanDisk 64GB Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I Card

SanDisk 128GB Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I Card
