Buying a camera when you don’t know can hit your wallet hard. As the camera and camera accessories prices in Pakistan are going up, you need excellent research skills to find a suitable product for yourself. Most people who dive into this profession for the first time, go for the cheapest options in the market. Companies are trying to facilitate people with better prices and features, but they are far from ideal for newcomers.
One brand offers a reasonable price, and the other gives you better features. There is too much confusion because of the variety, which sometimes can get worse. We thought about making a list of 5 cameras that are best for beginners, and they should be from 5 different brands.
CANON EOS 200D
You can find many brands better than 200D, but not as balanced. This camera has everything that a starter needs. The three most important things that every photographer wants are the long battery life, lightweight, and best touch screen. This camera has all three and much more. There is a 24 MP sensor to give your photos a new life. Canon EOS 200D can take 650 photos before running out of battery. It also has Wi-Fi for connectivity.
If you ask a professional photographer to recommend few cameras, Nikon D3500 will be among the top 5 choices. It has a 24 MP sensor with 1080p full resolution. The features are similar to EOS 200D, except for a few here and there. There are basic controls that can help you in handling and shooting. It can take 5fps in a single burst.
When it first came into the market, it went through many changes. There was a time when Sony A6000 was considered one of the best cameras out there. This is the reason you should consider buying one as a beginner photographer. It is a Mirrorless camera with a 24 MP sensor that captures up to 1080p content. The battery can last 360 shots before running out. It is light, has quick AF, and affordable. The only drawbacks may be older technology and no 4k.
Some people may not recommend Fuji, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy it. Fujifilm X-A3 is a smart mirrorless camera with a 24 MP sensor that shoots up to 1080p resolution. It has a burst speed of 6fps and sophisticated face detection technology. There are a touch screen and a Wi-Fi/remote control. The design is excellent, and image quality is even better. Fujifilm X-A3 comes at a price that beats its competitors from miles away.
PANASONIC LUMIX GX80
This is one of the few mirrorless cameras that has everything a beginner needs. PANASONIC LUMIX GX80 has a 16 MP sensor that can shoot up to 4k. Battery life can last 290 shots. It comes with Wi-Fi and Tilt screen. People who are looking for a quality camera and they can tolerate old technology will love this one. Canon and Nikon are probably the preferred choices by people, but Lumix is not far behind.
