Best Beginner DSLR Cameras

Digital single-lens reflex cameras, or DSLRs, offer photographers wanting to

upgrade from their point-and-shoot camera many advantages.

These also includes better image quality, more control over images and better performance. Today, the market holds many options for beginners who have outgrown their point-and-shoot.

The following cameras offer beginners great tools to improve their photography.

Canon Rebel T4i

The Canon Rebel T4i offers beginners an excellent tool to improve their photography. It borrows many features from higher-end models but

also makes it easy for beginners to grow into the camera. It's easy to put the camera in auto mode and take photos. At the same time, Canon

has given the camera enough features to keep the camera interesting as skills become more advanced.

The camera features the same 18 mega-pixel sensor that Canon puts into the higher-end 7D model, meaning the image quality is great. It

also has a flip-out screen to help when taking photos at awkward angles and has the ability to take photos at five frames per second.

Nikon D3200

The Nikon D3200, like the T4i, offers beginners a camera they can grow with while not feeling too limited as their skills improve. One

distinction that Nikon offers is their popular guide mode. This mode helps users when setting up their camera and helps them choose the

settings that will work best depending on what type of pictures they are taking.

The D3200 is cheaper than the T4i, and it also offers fewer features. The camera shoots four frames per second compared with the T4i's five.

The build quality is generally viewed as inferior as well. However, it does offer a newer, 24 mega-pixel senor, helping the camera best the T4i

in image quality.

Pentax K-30

For someone who wants pure image quality over any other feature, the Pentax K-30 is the answer. The camera's sensor only offers 16 mega-

pixels, lower than the T4i or D3200, but more pixels does not always mean better quality. Other issues such as dynamic range, noise

performance and processing determine this too.

The Pentax K-30 also offers an Auto Picture mode to help beginners. Just select the mode and start taking pictures. The camera also bests

Canon and Nikon by shooting six frames per second. In addition, the camera offers a high-dynamic-range mode that allows users to take

better pictures of scenes with both bright and dark areas.

Mirrorless Cameras

While DSLRs are a great option for many people, a new type of interchangeable-lens camera is gaining in popularity. DSLRs use mirrors to

help users use the viewfinder to see through the lens when composing a photo. Mirrorless cameras replace this function by using an

electronic viewfinder or the camera's LCD screen instead.

These cameras keep many of the advantages of DSLRs, such as a large sensor and more control, but they also can be made much smaller

because of the lack of a mirror. This also helps keeps the size of lenses down too.

Canon, Nikon and Pentax have all released mirrorless models. However, other camera companies also offer excellent cameras. Sony's NEX

line of cameras is very popular. Micro 4/3 cameras made by Olympus and Panasonic offer smaller cameras and lenses than Sony while

maintaining high image quality. Any of these cameras could be right of a beginner.

Making a Decision

Because taking pictures is the only way to improve at photography, the best camera for a beginner is one they will use. If this means having

the highest image quality, the Pentax K-30 may be the best option. If it means having a very light, portable camera, a mirrorless camera may

fit the bill.

Different features, ergonomics and designs appeal to different people. So taking the time to handle any cameras that are interesting as that

can be very helpful when making a decision about which DSLR is the best choice for you.
