Canon Rebel T7i (33-T7I18-55-032217)
Capture Every Detail
Every good photographer knows the importance of having a high-quality camera. The ability to capture every last detail in a photo is of the utmost importance, and having anything less than this is just not satisfactory. Along with the high details come other aspects too, such as having the right color balance, contrast, and many other small details that can vary greatly between cameras. Having all of these small details in a photo can make all of the difference between a great photo and one that is worthless, and professional photographers, in particular, won't settle for anything less than great.
The Canon Rebel T7i DSLR Camera is one that you can count on for taking only the highest quality photographs. This camera kit includes an 18-55mm IS STM lens that allows for fine-tuning and adjustments within a wide range, allowing you to focus your camera just the way you want. Just in case this lens isn't what you need, though, it is detachable and allows for a wide variety of lenses to be attached, so you can be sure to use the best lens for the best shots. The camera is rated at 24.2 Megapixels, which means that every last detail should be shown in high clarity and focus, without unnecessary blurring or distortion.
Everything You Need
The high quality and detail of photographs that are taken with this camera are beyond extraordinary, but that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what this camera kit has to offer. Included with the camera are loads of accessories that should give you just about everything you would ever need with it, short of specialty lenses. Among the items included are two 32GB SanDisk SDHC memory cards, which should give you enough storage for taking thousands of photos without worrying about running out of space. The kit also includes a high-quality carrying case, flashlight, a 3-piece filter kit, a 4-piece close-up kit, a wireless remote control, charger, USB card reader, and even a 50" tripod. This bundle of items alone ensures that you will have everything you could need with the camera, as well as a great way to carry your equipment with you.
The camera itself features a 3.0" 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle touchscreen, which allows you to easily control the settings of the camera as well as easily frame and view your photos as you are taking them. All of this coupled with the 1-year limited warranty should give you the peace of mind that you need when purchasing this extraordinary high-quality camera kit.

If your only concern is that using a professional camera is inconvenient due to it being rather heavy and bulky, the Nikon D5600 can be the answer to your prayers. Being a recent release of Nikon company, this camera is head and shoulders above the models tailored for amateur users, employing the features that make it suitable for both newbies and pro users alike. In fact, it is the only Nikon's DX-format camera that has a vary-angle screen. This along with a small size of the camera and a slew of other user-friendly features make it a golden choice for just about everyone, including first-time photographers, students as well as vloggers and pros.
Now, let's take a closer look at this model's design. As we've mentioned, the camera is very small and lightweight. Measuring just 4.9 x 2.8 x 3.8 inches and with the weight of a bit more than one pound, the D5600 is of about the same size as an SLR-style mirrorless camera. Yet, unlike SLR-style models, it offers a deeper grip so that you feel the camera very well and have a proper hold of it. The buttons on it are quite small too, however, they are convenient to press and everything here is perfectly balanced.
Turning to the optics, the D5600 incorporates the new AF-P 18-55mm lens. Although it's not as fast as the lens used in mirrorless cameras, it is certainly not slow too and it perfectly works in combo with the touch control of the screen, focusing on an object in mere seconds and letting you take a picture in a snap.
Moving on, let's talk about performance. The new feature of the D5600 - the SnapBridge technology - is a great upgrade of Nikon's cameras ensuring that this model can maintain a low-power Bluetooth LE connection with digital devices. That said, it's not completely flawless. For now, it works somewhat slow with Android devices and with iPhone OS, it requires that you select a WiFi connection manually, not a critical flaw but something that needs improvement. When it comes to the rest of the settings, everything works pretty fine. Besides, in most cases, the camera can perfectly adjust the settings for you, ridding of the need to do it manually.
Speaking of the quality of shots, the D5600 doesn't trail behind its rivals and is able to capture notable detail in dark conditions and environments while delivering colors close to natural. And because it doesn't have a low-pass filter, it also allows acquiring extra-crips fine detail and sharpness from subjects. On top of that, the camera doesn't lack in the speed department, supporting continuous shooting up to 5 fps and up to 60 fps when used in video mode. All of that makes it a decent contender and a sound choice for both first-time and professional photographers. Plus, you can't but like its more than reasonable price.

What customers say about this product
Size & Weight
Canon Rebel T7
Entry-Level But Capable
Anyone new to DSRL cameras will find a lot to love about the Canon Rebel T7. First things first, this model is quite affordably priced with its price varying in the range of 450-500 bucks. Despite that, it offers very good image quality and it's very easy to use so even someone who has never used a DSLR camera before will be able to work out how to handle it in close to no time. Plus, the model offers a slew of useful features, thus if you decide to grow your photography skills, it will still suit perfectly.
Now, before talking about specs, let's first discuss the T7 design. Compared to the Nikon D5600 which we've reviewed above, this model is a bit heavier with its weight totalling 1.75 pounds. That said, it is not huge and getting hold of it will be quite easy, partly due to its compact dimensions and partly due to its comfy textured rubber grip. Except for the grip, the camera's body is made mostly of plastic, which isn't great but we can't really hold it against the T7 considering its more than reasonable price tag.
As far as controls go, the Canon Rebel T7 allows for quick one-touch access to the key shooting settings such as focus, drive modes, white balance and ISO. Add to this the quick menu that is accessible via external controls as well and you get an extremely straightforward device letting you fine-tune it with minimum tweaking on your side. When it comes to the internal menu system of the T7, though, there's nothing complicated in it too. Every function and mode here is color-coded so you can quickly figure out how to use them. All of this played an important role in making the T7 one of the faves of those who want an entry-level, affordable but capable camera.
Design out of the way, let's take a closer look at the specs. In general, the T7 is a very decent contender among the DSLR in its class. It takes great quality footage and provides more than pleasing results when capturing images under well-lit conditions and in bright environments. On top of that, it can cover a pretty large distance, letting you get a crisp detail from an object located up to 15-30 feet away.
It might have problems taking photos in the dark conditions, but using an accessory external flash can help solve this issue. One other thing that can be said in a negative light is that the T7's display isn't touch screen and doesn't rotate. However, it shouldn't bring any inconvenience to most users, especially those who seek an affordable DSLR camera.
In all, this camera allows for acquiring great footage, perfectly capturing details, textures, and shades in various lighting conditions and shooting modes. Even though it's not without its moment and some rare haloing might still be present at the edges of some photos, these drawbacks are very minuscular. Plus, it offers Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth. In combination with a great price, an extensive set of features, creative filters, modes, and unbeatable ease of use, this all makes the T7 one of the best cameras in its price range.

AN UPGRADED EXCELLENCE
Although the upgraded D3500 DSLR camera from Nikon hasn’t changed that much, it has received a refined design and a couple of new features that make an already good product even better.
To start off, let’s take a closer look at the specifications that were updated in this newer model. First of all, the battery life has been significantly improved and now can endure up to 1600 shots (1000 shots with the former D3400 model). Surprisingly enough, the weight of the camera has been decreased to only 415 g, despite the extended battery life.
Moving on, the ability to record in Full HD allows making truly stunning videos with frame rates of up to 60 fps, which is quite impressive for an entry-level model. Moreover, a high-quality microphone records videos with a crisp sound, so you won’t have to change it in post-processing or use additional hardware.
In addition to the great capabilities of the camera itself, the device features a built-in SnapBridge technology that enables wireless file transfer. This feature will be extremely useful for users that like to send the RAW files straight away without using a laptop or computer.
Also included is a built-in Guide Mode that will prove useful for newbies who are just getting to grips with creative filters and shooting modes. To add more, while this model is designed primarily for beginner photography users, it is compatible with a variety of lenses. Specifically, you can use it with most F-mount lenses from Nikon as well as from many other third-party makers as well, which makes it a great long-term solution and one of the best cameras in its class.

Canon EOS 4000D
A GREAT TOOL TO BECOME A PRO
If you are a beginner when it comes to photography, you probably wonder where you should start. Well, with some practice behind your back, you will be able to make truly stunning photographs, as well as high-quality video clips in just a few months. Just remember that practice makes perfect, so don’t be upset if your first experience with a professional-grade camera will be a tough one. All pro photographers have been there once in their career so it is important to stay positive and focus on your achievements.
One of the great tools that can help you get these achievements is the Canon EOS 4000D. Perfect for beginners, the device comes with the sort of features that are more prevalent in the premium, high-end cameras. The 18 Megapixel sensor makes sure that your photos always look smooth and crisp. And you won't have to worry about those photos being too heavy for your memory card since, by purchasing Canon products, you get 15GB of storage on Irista for free.
Memory question aside, the ways to improve your photography skills can vary in effectiveness. Fortunately, there is a great way to do that quickly and almost without any effort. Get inspired by professionals using the Canon Photo Companion application that is designed exactly for educating entry-level photographers.
There are a few things that might leave first-time users a bit confused, though. One of them is that there's no actual "Power" button. Instead, the camera has a simple off position on the dial. This might seem inconvenient at first but once you get used it, it won't be a problem for you. Another one is that its flash doesn't pop up in a full auto mode as it does in most DSLR cameras. To enable it, you will need to pull it up manually, one other thing that might take a bit of getting used to.
Despite all that, the Canon EOS 4000D is still pretty good. In fact, it's perhaps one of the best starter camera kits with a lot of features that come at a fair price.

What Is a DSLR Camera?
A DSLR camera (short for digital single lens reflex) is a digital camera that uses the single lens reflex system found on older professional film-based cameras. These cameras are fully digital, with the basic design being similar to most other digital cameras, but the lens that they use is a high-quality lens that has been proven throughout the years.
The lens of a DSLR camera works by allowing light to pass through the lens, and then to a mirror that sends the light to the digital imaging sensor and/or through the viewfinder. Many of these types of cameras include a digital image display to allow for easier aiming and framing of the picture, while many also include a viewfinder that allows for setting up a perfectly framed shot. The single lens design ensures that the resulting photo will not be much (if at all) different than what is seen through the viewfinder, or through the digital display.
DSLR cameras are often considered to be among the best digital cameras, as they allow such precision in taking photographs that are so similar to what is seen through the viewfinder. These cameras are perfect for both hobbyists and professionals, and many people much prefer them to most other types of digital or film-based cameras.
If you are a hobbyist or professional photographer and love to display your photos, then take a look at our reviews of the five best digital photo frames.
What Features to Compare
DSLR cameras are among the most popular types of high-end cameras for both hobbyists and professionals, and as such, there are quite a few models out on the market. When looking for the right DSLR camera for what you need, there are many considerations that must be taken into account. Sorting through the many different models can be difficult, but knowing exactly what to look for will help you a great deal in narrowing the selection down to what you need. Keep some of these different characteristics in mind when looking for the perfect DSLR camera.
Megapixels - One of the most important features of the camera is the number of megapixels that the camera is able to capture in a photograph. This number determines the quality and detail that is captured by the camera, and the higher the number, the more detailed the photos will be. Generally, you will want to find a camera with a high megapixel count to ensure you are getting the most detailed photos possible.
Lens - WIth the many different models that are available, it can be confusing to figure out the differences between the different cameras. However, the first way to narrow down your purchasing decision is to look for a camera kit or a bundle. This indicates that the camera comes complete with a lens, usually between 18 to 55mm. As the lens is one of the most important components of the camera, ensuring that it comes with a good lens will be a necessity.
Features - As DSLR cameras are fully digital, they almost all include a great selection of different features and abilities, such as video, zoom, wide angle, panoramic, and other features commonly found with digital cameras. However, not all models will include the same set of features. It is important to check to make sure that the camera you buy includes the features that you need.
Mount - Many professional photographers rely on mounts for certain types of photos. Finding a camera that is compatible with your favorite mount is, of course, a necessity if you don't wish to purchase an extra mount. However, some DSLR cameras do actually include a mount, so it's best to check if the one that you want to buy includes one if it doesn't fit your own.
Bundled Accessories - Those who take photography seriously know that cameras often require extra accessories, including a carrying case, strap, mount, and other items. Many of the higher end DSLR cameras tend to come with many accessories included, but others don't. If you are going to need or want accessories for your camera, then you will want to make sure that the accessories you need are either included with the camera at purchase, or readily available to purchase alongside it.
Did you know?
The Best Features of DSLR Cameras
DSLR cameras have really revolutionized the photography business ever since they were first created, giving photographers an unprecedented level of detail as well as control over their photos that they never had before. Many of the features that have been included with recent cameras have now become a mainstay with photographers. If you are new to the exciting world of DSLR cameras, then here are some of the exciting features that are now commonplace with most high-end models.
The days of having to manually focus your lens are long gone. Most DSLR cameras include the ability to autofocus on any object that the camera is pointed at, no matter how far or close it is. The autofocus feature uses phase detection, which works by having the camera automatically calculate the distance to the object and then focus the lens accordingly. This prevents photographers from having to spend precious time focusing their own lenses before each shot, and more time on taking quality photographs.
Another exciting new feature with most DSLR cameras is the ability to mode dial, which allows for quick and easy access to many of the functions and features of the camera, such as setting the priorities for the aperture and shutter, the various modes that are supported on the camera, and many other settings. This is especially helpful for beginning photographers who are not sure how to calibrate their cameras for the effects they want to achieve.
Many DSLR cameras include dust reduction systems that help keep the camera and lens free of unnecessary and harmful dust. The various dust reduction systems used can vary greatly, depending on the model of the camera, but they can range from automatically closing lens covers to vibration systems that shake out any dust that has accumulated in the lens.
Being able to change the lens of a camera is nothing new, as this feature has been included on many high-end cameras for decades. However, more and more cameras that are affordable for hobbyists and professionals alike include this ability and many of the higher-end models may even include various lenses with the camera kit. Most popular camera manufacturers make additional lenses for their cameras, and many third-party lenses are available as well.
HD Video Recording
Anyone who wanted to take both high-quality photos and videos required multiple items of equipment, including both a camera and a camcorder. However, most DSLR cameras now include the ability to record HD quality video along with taking high-quality photos. This means that just one device can now be used in any situation, regardless of whether you are taking still photos or recording an event.
One of the best things about high-end digital cameras now is that most of them include an LCD screen that displays the image as seen through the viewfinder. In fact, this is a very specific upside of DSLR cameras, considering that the viewfinder and lens both view from the same mirror. This makes framing and following a shot much easier than ever before, without the need to put the camera up to your face just to take a photo. Photographers can now easily see what their shot will look like at a glance.
Many Other Features
There is no shortage of features that are included with most DSLR cameras, including depth-of-field control, wider angles, and many more. Whichever DSLR camera you decide to get, you should have a large number of special features at your fingertips.
Q: How are DSLR cameras different than most regular digital cameras?
A: The main difference between a DSLR camera and most other cameras has to do with how the camera is aimed through the viewfinder. Both the lens and the viewfinder are seeing from the same source, which allows photos to be exactly as seen through the viewfinder, or through the LCD display that is included on most models.
Q: How are DSLR cameras better than the high-quality cameras found on top-end smartphones?
A: Smartphone cameras, especially those that come included with many high-end smartphones, have really given high-end cameras a run for their money in terms of quality. However, a smartphone camera simply lacks many of the capabilities of DSLR cameras, including the ability to change the lens. Smartphone cameras are limited to the lens that is included with it.
Q: What accessories do I need to have with a DSLR camera?
A: Many DSLR cameras include accessories in the camera kit, and many hobbyist photographers don't need any extra ones. However, a few of the accessories that are good to have are straps for holding the camera on your body, a tripod or other kind of mount for extremely steady photos, and SD cards for the ability to store the many photos that you will undoubtedly take with your camera.
Q: What exactly are Megapixels?
A: The term "megapixels" refers to the number of individual pixels that a single digital photo is composed of, measured in the millions. For instance, an 18-megapixel camera can take photos that are composed of up to 18 million pixels. The higher the megapixel rating for a camera, the more details that are typically included in the photo. Most photographers like to have a camera with as many megapixels as possible to ensure that their photos are of the highest quality.
Q: If I am a beginner photographer, should I buy a DSLR camera?
A: DSLR cameras are great for anyone, whether it be an absolute beginner or a seasoned veteran. Beginners will have the benefit of immediately having many of the advanced features of DSLR cameras right at their fingertips, without needing to invest too much money in additional camera gear once they become more proficient in the art of photography.
Q: Do film-based cameras exist that have the same features of DSLR cameras?
A: The SLR technology has actually been around for a long time, and thus non-digital SLR cameras have been available for years. However, film-based cameras simply do not have the same number of features as DSLR cameras, as digital cameras include many image manipulation and processing features that are simply not possible with a non-digital camera.
Q: How can a beginner learn to make the most of the special features included in a DSLR camera?
A: With a large number of features packed into a single DSLR camera, it can be daunting for a beginner to learn how to utilize these features to their fullest extent. However, there are plenty of ways of learning these features, including by reading the manual to the camera, watching DSLR camera tutorials on the Internet, and most of all, by plenty of practice. Veteran photographers are also often quite happy to help a beginner to learn about these features, so don't be afraid to ask for help.
