1. Nikon D3300

Nikon is a great brand to invest in, especially the D3000 series, they’re incredibly affordable and are a great value for money. The D330 is a classic, it comes with 24.2 megapixels sensor which photographs beautifully up to ISO 3200. It comes built in with an anti-aliasing filter to maximize image sharpness. One great thing about this camera is that it very easy to use, many entry level photographers have started out with this camera due to its simplicity. The camera comes with 18-55mm lens kit which is great kit to start out with, and supports various other lenses released by Nikon. The camera however does not have a touch screen or Wi-Fi as it Is an older release by the Company but if you’re particular about having Wi-Fi connectivity then Nikon does make cheap plug-in Wi-Fi adaptor.

2. Nikon D3200

Another popular camera with the beginners and entry level photography students is the Nikon D3200 coming from the same ‘D3000’ series of Nikon it is another great camera which takes professional looking photos yet being easy on the pocket. It has similar features to the D3300, which are still competitive today when it comes to camera specs. This again comes with the standard 18-55mm lens kit, which isn’t bad if you ask me, it takes bright, sharp and crisp looking photos, and there is nothing a bit of editing can’t fix to make the picture outstanding. This camera is particularly good in portrait photography and chances are you can find great deals on this camera. It came out quite a few years ago, and the reason why its still being sold is because of its popularity with entry level photographers.

3. Nikon D5500

The D5500 currently is considered to be the best entry level DSLR released by Nikon. This camera gives the Cannon 750D a run for its money. Choosing between Nikon and Cannon will be the toughest decision you’ll ever make, so I suggest you take a different approach, rather than comparing the brand compare the camera and what it offers. The D5000 series is a bit more refined series compared to D3000 which is targeted towards people on a budget. The D5000 series however is more of a level up when people start to play around with their cameras and want that ‘little extra’ from their photos. The camera comes with a touch screen and a built in Wi-Fi. The camera delivers great photos which look crisp, the camera is available in a number of kits, so depends on what lens kit you prefer with your camera really, and the price varies accordingly

• Megapixels: 24.2
• Lens mount: Nikon DX
• Screen: 3.2-inch articulating touch-screen, 1,040,000 dots

4. Cannon EOS 750D (rebel T6i)

The rebel T series has to be one of the most popular series in DSLR history, with T3i and T2i being the most popular, this series continues to be selling like hot cakes, primarily because of the black Friday deals every year, but mostly because this series is amazing for beginners in photography. It has a simple looking exterior with not an overwhelming amount of button which is always great especially when you don’t know what the button do. You can also get great support on how to use this camera, mainly from YouTube where there are countless number of video tutorials on how to take killer photos using this camera. T6i comes with a 24.2-megapixel sensor and delivers breathtaking image quality with impressively low noise levels at high ISO sensitivities. The camera offers a fast reacting auto focus and comes with a touch screen and an in built Wi-Fi.

5. Pentax K-50

If you’re looking to do a lot of outdoor photography without having to think twice about dropping your camera then Pentax k-50 is a great beginner revel DSLR which is not only dust resistant and water proof but is also super-duper affordable, however there is a catch, this camera will require you to buy expensive weather resistant lenses to enjoy it fully. One great feature offered by this camera is Shake Reduction that can even correct slightly skewed horizons.

• Sensor: APS-C CMOS
• Megapixels: 16.3
• Lens mount: Pentax K
• Screen: 3-inch, 921,000 dots
• Continuous shooting speed: 6fps

6. Sony Alpha a58

When faced with the dilemma whether to buy Cannon or Nikon, its best to take another route, and Sony is a great option. The a58 is a SLT (single lens translucent) camera and comes with a an electronic viewfinder (EVF). Another bonus is the super-fast 8fps continuous shooting speed, also the camera is incredibly light weight and is great if you like taking photos of yourself a lot, saves you a whole lot of trouble. I have noticed that each photo taken looks highly crisp one uploaded and the image has a a lot of depend in a way that one can edit it out a whole lot without it looking pixelated or over edited. I find that this camera is particularly good at shooting in low light. It’s a massive bargain, it really is.

• Sensor: APS-C CMOS
• Megapixels: 20.1
• Lens mount: Sony A
• Screen: 2.7-inch articulating, 460,800 dots
