Everyone loves DSLR cameras & there are a lot of people who are getting into DSLR photography every day. But, choosing the perfect DSLR, to begin with, can be a big challenge. You have to know if a particular model is good for exactly what you need. So, how to get out of all this confusion? Well, lucky for you, we have already done most of the work & sorted out the best DSLR cameras under the 30000 rupees price point. You actually don’t need to go higher than that price bracket if you are just starting out. All the Cameras that we mentioned here, include kit lenses so, you don’t need to buy a lens right away. So, let’s look at the options here,
Canon EOS 1500D
As a successor to the Canon 1300D, the Canon 1500D is a great refinement to Canon’s entry-level DSLR line up. The resolution of the sensor & much more has been improved in this version. It now has a 24.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor supporting Canon EF & EF-S lenses with the built-in Canon EF mount. It can shoot 14-bit RAW & has a shutter speed of 1/4000 to 30 seconds. The ISO ranges from 100-6400 and can be pushed to 12800. The 9 auto-focus points include one cross-type so, it should be good for autofocusing in its particular price segment. There is support for 1080P 30 fps video so, that’s no problem either.
As an extra, there is also support for 802.11 Wi-Fi & NFC so, clicking or transferring photos using the Canon smartphone app is also possible. Also, it is about 476 grams heavy so, that’s not an issue as well. The Canon 1500D currently sells for 25.5K & can be purchased from Amazon India.
The Nikon D3500 is one of the finest Nikon Cameras to start your DSLR journey with. It has a high-resolution sensor, supports 12-bit RAW shooting, Bluetooth 4.1 and more. To be more specific, there is a 24.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor with Nikon’s DX-format & a Nikon F mount for lenses. It supports shutter speeds from 1/4000 up to 30 seconds, ISO from 100 to 25600 & up to 5 fps shooting. As far video goes, it supports 1080P up to 60 fps in H.264.
The Nikon D3500 weights 415 grams so, it should be pretty easy to carry around. Also, there is a decent amount of controls with the Guide mode so, handling should be pretty easy as well. It is currently selling around 28K & it is available on both Amazon & Flipkart.
Canon EOS 3000D
In case you want something more basic or something for casual occasions, the Canon 3000D might just be the one for you. It keeps the basics in check, provides the complete DSLR experience & gets the job done. It has a slightly lower-res 18 Megapixel CMOS sensor supporting the same Canon EF & EF-S lenses with the built-in Canon EF mount. It can also shoot 14-bit RAW just like the 1500D, has the same shutter speed from 1/4000 to 30 seconds & has an ISO range of 100-6400 (can be extended to 12800). It also shoots at a maximum speed of 3 shots per second & has a total of 9 autofocus points. However, you only get 1080P at 30 frames per second in this one as well.
About handling, there is a decent amount of controls. Oh, and the weight is around 436 grams. The Canon EOS 300 is currently available at 23K and can be purchased from Flipkart.
The Above listed are some of the best DSLR cameras that you can get and become a Photo Geek Star. Also, there are other options that you can use, but that depends on the situation or criteria you are looking for. If you have any special request let us know, we will guide you on which DSLR to buy.
