If you are here, it is because you have reached the limits of your old compact camera and want to move to a new level. Or you may want to enter the picture through the big door and start making good pictures. If any of these is your case (and if not, also), the best option is SLR for beginners.
These cameras allow you to take a big step forward in terms of quality, while maintaining a very affordable price. They offer all the advantages of SLRs; change objectives, manual control, internal mirror … In addition, you can continue using the automatic modes, so that your learning will be much easier while you adapt and learn new ways of creative controls.
Obviously, the more features you want, the more expensive the camera will be, but as I always say, do you really need all those options?
If you are buying your first SLR camera, one of the best options is the camera and lens packs.
These packs usually offer lenses with a very wide focal length, so that you can cover the entire possible range, perfect for all types of photographs, portraits, landscapes, product.
It is not a bad option, at all, because later you will be able to add more lenses to your collection. As I say in the MEGA GUÍA, the next choice should be a fixed focal length within the characteristics you need.
If you have studied your needs well and you see that the objective offered by the pack is not going to help you, you have the option to buy body and objective separately. In this way, the body will only come out cheaper and you can invest the rest in your ideal goal, even if it is a little more expensive than the pack.
The best SLR for beginners
Well, now that everything else you need to know is clear (I do not want to be heavy, but read the MEGA GUÍA if you have any doubts), we can already see the best SLRs for beginners in the market, with their pros and cons, features and prices .
I have wanted to make a varied guide with possibilities. It is clear that Canon and Nikon are the brands that offer the largest collection of objectives, but we must not close to all others, such as Pentax or Sony.
The Nikon D3400 is not the cheapest beginner SLR, but it is the most complete one you can find.
Canon EOS 800D
The 800D is a powerful option and superior to the others, but with a high price.
The direct competition of the previous camera, the D5600 is on par in the top of the SLR for beginners.
