Buying my first DSLR

April 12, 2014 @ 02:26:16
I'm considering buying an entry level DSLR and have read up quite a bit about the different models available. I plan on using it primarily for my travels and the various people/cities/scenery I encounter. Right now, the Nikon D5200 seems like a good option, but anything around the $900 range is something that is affordable. Any input or suggestions would be appreciated. Cheers.

Canon T3i

You will enjoy a Canon just that much more. I think you can get them for about $550 right now with the stock 18-55mm lens.

If recommend a smaller camera like the Fuji x100. A mirthless or the ones that you can change lenses with especially if you're looking for entry level.

I disagree with the x100 recommendation. If it's your first camera it's cool to experiment with different focal lengths as you learn to use your camera. With the x100 you're stuck with a 23mm f/2 lens, have a smaller sensor, and have to deal with parallax. Personally your best bet is probably something from the Canon Rebel series. Something like a t2i or t3i with a kit lens or a 50mm would be a good starting point.

I have the D5200 its amazing. BUT its the lens you need to invest into, bodies changes everytime but lenses are very stagnant and they determine your pictures too. Nikon is fun but the D5200 will limit you to G lens unless you shoot manual which I do. You should shoot manual anyways but if you dont wanna have a hassle of shooting manual get the D7000. The 1/8000 shutter will be coolio too plus the lens flexibility. I love my 24mp since I can crop that shit even more

Canon Rebel t5i is low cost and very nice. I use it on a few of my videos when I don't want to lug around the Canon 60D
