    Hello,

    I am new to the site and ready to get in the world of photography.
    I am a beginner in photography and i am looking to buy my first DSLR. I have looked for entry level models and i like Canon EOS 200D and Canon EOS 750D. My budget is 500£.
    Which models would you recommend? I would be interested also in packages like camera body + extra lens+memory card+tripod

    Thank you.

    Both solid cameras. Go to a shop and pick them up etc and that may help you decide. Your in the UK? Where do you intend to buy?

    Have a look @ Hdew cameras online. They generally have good kit bargains. What will you mainly use your camera for (type of photos, video etc)?

    personally I am at a cross roads as I am looking at a similar budget however I have found a few good deals on the canon 1300d at below £300 with the kit lense, my question is do I pay the extra for the canon 2000d or Nikon d3400, both of these feature an increase to 24mp however the Nikon also reaches iso25600 I believe

    I would not worry about iso 25600, you likely won't be using it even if it says you can.

    Any new dslr is very capable. There have been sensor improvement over the last while, so I would if I was buying a system try and get one with that systems latest chip. The Nikon 24mp cameras are very good imagers, I believe canons 24mp ones are an improvement over previous ones such as the one used in the 1300d.

    This doesn't mean the 1300d is not a good capable imager.

    Good lenses are as if not more important than cameras

    I had suspected I would never use the increased iso however over than battery life on the Nikon being approx 1200 shot compared to the cannons 500 shot I have been struggling to decide, the local chain stores are pretty useless and I haven't had chance to go to a "specialist" store due to work, I am looking at purchasing a tripod so in terms of lenses would you say it is worth paying for a canon is lense or Nikon vr? If yes the 1300d would allow me to stay within my budget as the kit and a second lense after I have played around with it

    I would say get either with a stabilised kit lens, either vr or IS, whichever brand you go for. You'll may find that if you buy say an 18-55 kit you'll almost immediately want more range. I'd recommend stretch the budget to maybe an 18-105 or 18-140 or 18-135 depending on the brand, it gives a good starting point I'm my ooiopin

    I have found a tamron 75-300 kit which includes the smaller lense for £400 Which would keep me within budget, is it better to have the single lense over the two considering the 18-100+ new are looking at I've £300 I am sorry for the questions but I don't want to end up in a money pit and then get to the point of spending so much money and not knowing how to even use the equipment I have
