So do you want to buy your first camera, but don’t have a huge budget. The good news is that there are many entry-level DSLRs available for you to pick from. You’ll also be able to grow with these cameras, as you’ll be able to use all sorts of lenses and filters on them. So without further ado, let’s get started.

1. Nikon D3500

Nikon D3500 is currently the most appealing beginners’ camera in the market. What’s unique about this camera is that it has a Guide Shooting Mode, which serves as a kind of interactive photography course. Other cool features include 11 autofocus points, an ISO range of 100 to 25600, 5 frames per second shooting speed, full HD movie recording, etc. It is priced at around Rs 37,839 on Amazon with a dual-lens kit and Rs 27,999 with one lens.

2. Canon EOS 1500D

The Canon 1500D comes with features such as a 24MP APS-C sized CMOS sensor capable of full HD video recording at 1080p and 25 fps, ISO range of 100 to 12800, burst shooting at 3fps, 9-point AF system, and Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity. The 3-inch LCD screen doesn’t feature any touchscreen capabilities and does not flip to the side. It costs Rs 25990 with an 18-55mm kit lens and Rs 33,999 with 18-55mm and 55-250mm kit lenses.

3. Canon EOS 200D

The Canon EOS 200D features a large 24.2 MP, APS-C-size CMOS sensor and the new DIGIC 7 image processor, enabling users to shoot in low-light conditions such as at night or indoors by setting their native ISO speed settings at up to 25600 (expandable to ISO 51200) to achieve images that retain all the details and colours with minimal noise. Movies can be shot in full HD 60p / 50p, which is capable of capturing smooth footage. If your budget is more, then instead of 1500D you may go for this camera at around Rs 49989 with two lenses, and Rs 47695 with one lens on Amazon.

4. Nikon D5600

The D5600 is a step up from the D3000-series models, with a stronger set of specs to rival the likes of the Canon EOS 800D. Key advantages over the D3500 include a larger LCD screen, which flips out and swivels all the way around, together with a more advanced autofocus system, Wi-Fi and a healthy range of additional control on the inside. Sure, you pay a little extra for the privilege, but if you need a little more growing space it makes sense to go for the D5600 so that it stays with you for years to come. Price on Amazon with a single 18-55mm kit lens is around Rs 37,999 and with two lenses – 18-55mm & 70-300mm is around Rs 47,529.

With its compact size and lightweight, the Sony α6000, a midrange mirrorless camera, may compare favourably to heavier DSLRs.

Notable traits include continuous shooting up to 11 fps and an intelligent Fast Hybrid AF system. You can buy it from Amazon at around Rs 40,490 for a 16-50mm lens, or Rs 50,790 for two lenses – 16-50mm and 55-210mm.
