BEST BEGINNER DSLR CAMERA 2020. I’ve got a couple of new cameras here a couple of older ones and hopefully I’ll be able to help you figure out which ones might be right for you and if you haven’t heard yet I’m currently doing a massive camera give away to one lucky subscriber you can win either a Canon M 50 t7 or Nikon d 3500 and the lens of your choice from my epic lens list which you can see in the description box below under this video all you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this video and tell me which camera and lens from the list you want to win anyway let’s now take a look at some of these beginner DSLR cameras so I’ve been lucky enough to review and shoot with a number of DSLR cameras over the last five or six years and over that time I’ve seen a number of different beginner cameras come and go I’ve also seen which kind of features work for most beginners now in front of me I’ve got some cameras here from Canon and Nikon now I’m also going to make a video on cameras from Panasonic and Sony so if you’d like to see that make sure to leave a thumbs up on this video but I’ve got a couple of cameras here which should work well for pretty much all beginners now I’ll go from cheapest all the way through to more expensive so you can kind of get an idea of which cameras might work well for your price range so starting off with the cheapest of these cameras I probably look at something like the Canon mm D or the Canon 4000 D now let’s take a look at the Canon 4000 D first this one here was released about two months ago and it’s a fantastic beginners camera if you’re looking for just a photography camera if you’re gonna be doing video I probably wouldn’t recommend this camera at all why is this camera so cheap well firstly it does come in at around about four hundred and fifty dollars depending on where you are so it is one of canons cheapest DSLRs ever but it’s pretty much a cheaper deal are because they’ve got rid of a lot of the kind of special features so if we take a look at the back of the DSLR here we don’t have a flip screen just got a built-in screen it works pretty well but again a lot of these cameras here now have flip screens and they also have touch screens as well which again this doesn’t have but if you’re looking for a camera that’s going to be relatively lightweight and allows you to change the lenses this can definitely be a good little camera for you in terms of specs you’re going to be getting around about 18 megapixels on this camera here compared to a lot of these ones which might be doing around about 24 megapixels but honestly to me the Canon 4000 D is probably going to be a very popular camera for a lot of beginners simply because of its price like
I said before you could also look at the Canon mm D and in America this is going to be called the canon t7 now the canon t6 which came before this was an incredibly popular camera probably one of the most popular cameras ever sold in terms of dslr’s and my review on that one that had over a million views last time so the canon t7 is definitely going to be a popular camera now in terms of this one here we’ve got a slightly larger screen on the back we’ve got a few other features we’ve got a few more buttons on the back here as well and in terms of video recording this one here is going to be a little bit better compared to this one we’ve even got a dedicated video dial which allows you to really start your video as soon as possible by the way guys I was thinking about making a video on the best cameras for travel in 2019 if you’d like to see that let me know by leaving a thumbs up in this video now in terms of actual specs you’re not going to get a massive bump in specs with the canon t7 compared to the Canon 4000 d this one does shoot in 24 megapixels if I’m correct and it does have a little bit better autofocus as well in video but overall there’s not only a massive difference between the 2000 D and the 4000 D what you’re really going to see is if you’re going to be stepping up to a camera such as this one right here this is the Canon so2 or 200 D I’ve currently got a vlogging microphone on the top because I use this as my vlogging camera to take this off but the Canon mm sorry the Canon 200 D is a fantastic camera for a few different reasons firstly it’s got a really big upgrade in terms of video specs so the Canon 200 D or so2 does call it the so2 for today has a thing called dual pixel autofocus and dual pixel autofocus allows you to get silky smooth autofocus even in video mode so you’re gonna be getting some really quick and fast autofocus that works just pretty much perfectly you’re also going to be getting a flip screen on the Canon 200 D which allows you to really rotate the screen so you can actually see it in pretty much any angle so let’s say we’ve got the Canon 200 D and I want to be taking a photo from download I can flip the screen and be able to see it perfectly without having to kind of go down like this or if we’re at a concert or something like that you can have the screen pointing down while the camera is up here and you can see it perfectly and even if you’re doing what I’m doing right now you can actually film yourself
so you can flip the camera around the screen around and you’ll be able to see it there if you’re traveling here’s a little tip you want to actually flip the screen in on itself so the LCD screen is being protected that’s another really nice thing about this camera on the Nikon side I’d look at something like the Nikon d 3400 or what the Nick on D 3500 so I’ve got the D 3400 here it’s very similar to the D 3500 and this is a fantastic camera if you want to be a beginner on the Nikon side so why would you choose Nikon or Canon well honestly there’s not a massive difference it really comes down to personal preference some may say that Nikon has better image quality but some may say that Canada has better video quality again it’s very very comparable these days the biggest thing is what you feel more comfortable with and generally you’re actually going to stay with the same camera brand for a long time this is what a lot of people find they’ll go to their local camera store and they’ll find odd I’ve got a Nikon d 3400 you end up staying for 10 to 20 years so I really like nakhon I really like Canon as well and I also like shooting on Panasonic and Sony so I’m a bit fortunate with that but anyway the D 30 400s got a really nice burst rate can shoot up to 5 frames per second so if you’re going to be shooting something like sports a wildlife 2 D 3,400 or the 3500 can be great for that because it’s really going to allow you to capture that moment without having that you know quickly via the shots straight away I don’t find that Nikon beginner deer slides are a little bit sharper but that’s kind of changed a little bit in the last few years they are really coming a lot more similar now if you’re looking for something a little bit smaller but also a really nice camera and this one here is actually not specifically a DSLR it’s a mirrorless camera but it’s very similar this is the Canon M 50 this is very similar to the Canon so2 but as you can see it’s a lot smaller so the Canon M 50 is a doesn’t mirror in it essentially so if we take off this lens right here you can see that the sensor is right there so to put that back on whereas these cameras here have a mirror again one of the good features of the Canon m50 well we’ve got dual pixel autofocus like we have in the Canon so2 so you’re going to be getting that fantastically smooth autofocus in video mode and you’re also gonna be having fantastic autofocus in stills mode as well we’ve got this flip out screen as well works really well on the side here we have a microphone jack so this is really important
if you want to be making videos for say YouTube so if you want to be doing it vlogging you want to be making YouTube videos like me reviews essentially you can plug in a little shotgun mic like this or a lavalier mic like I’ve got right here on this side and then you can get much better audio whereas with cameras such as the Nikon d 3400 the Canon 4000 D they are unfortunately lacking in mic jacks so if you are going to be looking for a camera and you know you want to be doing video I would probably recommend the Canon 200-day or SL 2 or the Canon M 50 these two cameras are probably going to be your best bet for that now we’ll make a separate video for this but if you do want to look at other cameras I probably look at the Panasonic g7 again it’s not a DSLR it is a mirrorless camera but it’s a fantastic camera because it’s got shoots in 4k so if you are going to be shooting video the g7 is fantastic for that also I probably look at the Kino Sonic G 80 or g85 they’re kind of a step up from the Panasonic g7 they’ve got embody image stabilization it works fantastically so you have a couple of great cameras as well the sony a6000 a 6300 a 6500 all of those cameras are fantastic for beginners and they do have a couple of expert features that will kind of stick with you when you want to increase the level of your photography and cinematography so there you go guys there are a couple of beginner dslr’s I hope you have a fantastic day I’ve got a puppy running crazy in the background sorry if it was a little bit distracting but not much I can do or can I have to look after earth I’m gonna make your coffee right now if you do have any questions about beginner DSLRs or anything like that leaving a comment in the comment section below I’m always happy to kind of arts or any kind of questions and kind of help you in any way possible that’s kind of my jump here on this channel that’s it mate I hope you have a fantastic day and happy shooting see you next time bye hey what’s up everyone I hope you’re all having a fantastic day and you’ve been able to take some awesome photos lately now I just want to make a very quick video because I’ve got a huge announcement to celebrate reaching 35 million views here on YouTube I may be doing a huge camera give away to one lucky subscriber I’m going to be giving away either a Canon M 50 the brand new Canon mm D or t7 or the brand new Nikon d 3500 as a massive bonus I’m also going to be giving away a lens of your choice from my epic lens list you can say which lenses you’ll get to choose from in the link in the description box below now I’ll be adding new lenses every day every few days so make sure to check back regularly to see which lenses are in the list so entering.
