DSLR Camera Choices for Beginner


Taking the step from an automatic point-and-shoot camera to a full-fledged

single-reflex lens camera, or SLR, opens a variety of opportunities and new

photography possibilities.

Looking at the camera market today, the number of good cameras available for entry-level digital SLR use, or DSLR, are plentiful, offering a number of good choices at affordable prices. These cameras include all the tools to get started with, allowing users to migrate from automatic photography to skilled, advanced photography without being scared about it. Buyers just need to remember one thing: once a person is locked into one brand name of DSLR, it becomes very expensive to switch later on. Note: All the lenses and accessories tend to be brand-specific and cannot be swapped out.

Canon EOS Rebel T3i (includes an 18-55 mm lens) – Canon probably has something like three dozen different Rebel cameras, so

it’s important for a buyer to look for the right one, especially for a first-time DSLR. The T3i model provides a good starter model, but it’s not

the best recommendation for an action camera. It works better as a still photo tool. Price range: $470 – $890.

Nikon D3100 (includes an 18-55 mm lens) – The Nikon D 3100 provides a bit of an advanced camera body design for a beginner

SLR photographer. However, it’s put together in such a way that a beginner can easily utilize the basic tools and features within an hour of

practice. Price range: $360 - $780.

Nikon D3200 (includes an 18-55mm VR lens) – One would think that with a higher number, the D3200 might offer a beginner a

slightly better camera, and that’s part of the marketing strategy of labeling. Unfortunately, the D3200 isn’t much different from the D3100. It

does provide a good, solid design, which is a benefit for a beginner who may be clumsy-prone. Otherwise, it’s a safe choice for a graduation

from point-and-shoot models. Prince range: $470 - $850.

Sony Alpha SLT-A37 (includes an 18-55mm lens) - Sony is not a normal name seen in the SLR market, but the company does build

solid electronics. With the DSLR market being entirely void of film and film mechanics, the electronics are fair ground for Sony to enter and

stake its claim. As a far as the Alpha is concerned, it provides another solid DSLR choice under $800. However, unlike the Nikon and Canon

line, Sony doesn’t have an established lens line for expanded use. As a result, it has limited application for a beginner who wants grow into his

camera over time. Price range: $450 - $500.

Pentax K-30 (includes 18-55 mm lens) – On the high end of the beginner spectrum price range the K-30 sits as an available option

with fairly good ratings from photo magazine editors. A notable feature is how the camera is completely weather-sealed, which handy in rainy

climates or near water. For the price paid the camera gives a very good image performance, and comes with a complete lens kit. Price range:

$900 - $940.

The best camera for a beginner will depend a lot on what a person is comfortable with and how much he can afford. A camera should

definitely not be bought just based on how it looks on a box, but surprisingly a lot of people do exactly that. Beginners should definitely try

out a use DSLR is possible just to get used to it. Then, when all the features are familiar, the person can go out and pick the package that

works best.
