As good as smartphone cameras are now, you still need to upgrade to a dedicated camera if you want to get serious about photography. A bigger sensor, swappable lenses, and full manual controls will all help unleash your creativity.

But which camera is right for you? Let’s take a look at the best cameras for photography beginners, no matter what you want to shoot.

Best Overall DSLR Camera for Beginners:

May also be available from: Canon ($449.99); Walmart ($599); B&H ($599); Adorama ($599).

Canon - EOS - Rebel - SL2 - DSLR

The Canon EOS Rebel SL2 is often described as the best DSLR for beginner photographers, and it’s easy to see why. Its ultra-compact design makes it a lot less bulky than many other cameras, while the touchscreen controls and built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC make sharing pictures a breeze. You’ll be right at home if you’ve only ever used a smartphone.

Image quality is highly rated, naturally, and there are tons of lens options when you’re ready to upgrade. Like all Canon DLSRs, it’s great for video as well, although the HD resolution may be a limiting factor.

Alternative DSLR Camera for Beginners:

If you find yourself favoring Nikon over Canon—or just want something a lot cheaper—then the Nikon D3500 is about the lowest priced DSLR around.

It’s an excellent camera for learning photography thanks to the special Guide Mode. This helps you optimize the settings depending on the type of shot you want to take. The D3500 offers a large 24.3-megapixel sensor with low light performance that rates very well considering the price point. There’s a built-in flash, 5fps burst mode, and you can shoot HD video.

There are surpisingly few compromises given the low price; there’s no flip screen, no touch controls, and no 4K video. Those points aside, there’s an awful lot to like here.
