Photography is a very rewarding and satisfying hobby. Who would not want to capture the moment and preserve it forever? But, taking photography as a hobby can be quite expensive. You need to have the gears and the equipment to take good pictures. Aside from the equipment that you need to buy, the more important thing that you need to have is the skills. This one can’t be bought because it takes practice to have a good eye in photography. It takes time and effort to be good in photography, and having expensive and top-of-the-line equipment does not always translate to beautiful photos.
As a beginner, you should have constant practice and, of course, have the right gears. Whether you are looking for full-frame DSLRs or mirrorless cameras, there are a ton of options in the market right now. We help you narrow down the list for the best cameras for beginners this 2018.
The D3500 from Nikon is arguably the best entry-level DSLR camera that is available for beginners. With 24.2 megapixels and reliable ISO capabilities, you’ll get plenty of details even when shooting in low-light conditions. There are also tons of features that will help beginners to enhance their photography experience such as Nikon’s Guide Mode. D3500 easily beats the competition when it comes to price-performance ratio.
Canon EOS Rebel T7i / Canon EOS 800D
The Canon EOS Rebel T7i or the Canon EOS 800D for the non-US market is one of the best entry-level DSLRs that you can find today. It features a 24.2-megapixel sensor and a high-performing ISO for all your photography needs. What we like about the Rebel T7i is that it has a very intuitive user interface that will help beginners to find all the settings in one place. But, do note that this camera is pricier than the entry-level offerings from other brands.
Panasonic Lumix GX80
Making this list is the mirrorless offering of Panasonic in the form of the Lumix GX80. This little camera is perfect for beginners as it has an Intelligent option that will automatically find the right settings depending on the situation. It can also shoot 4K which is slowly becoming the standard when it comes to video quality.
While the prices of cameras are significantly higher than most unblocked games, they are definitely a worthwhile investment. Pick the best camera for you and start shooting memories.
