Anyone with experience will always tell you the benefits of developing a new skill. And what better skill is there than capturing the world or a lovely moment and keeping it forever. Yes, photography is not only a beautiful but also a very useful skill to learn. Many people are putting this skill to good use by uploading their pictures on social media, getting them published, holding exhibitions, or even selling them.

If you aspire to learn this skill, all you need is a good quality camera and some inspiration. While inspiration is subjective, here are some of the top DSLR cameras for beginners you may choose from.

Nikon D3400

The D3400 is a compact and lightweight camera that is very useful if you want to take pictures on-the-go. This 24.2 MP NIKKOR lens camera takes crisp photographs and the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine ensures clear pictures, even if taken in the dark. Fine-tune your images with the Picture Control option. Once you are done, easily send it to a smart device via Bluetooth with SnapBridge.

Nikon D5300

Just like the D3400, the D5300 also has a 24.2 MP lens and EXPEED 4 image-processing engine. Apart from these, the camera boasts of a built-in Wi-Fi feature, 39-point autofocus, wide sensitivity range, and a 3.2-inch LCD vari-angle monitor for crystal clear, bright, and beautiful images.

Canon E0S 1300D

The E0S 1300D is one of the best Canon beginner DSLR cameras you will find in the market. While it comes with an 18-megapixel APS-C size sensor lens, it can also be used with over 70 other EF/EF-S lenses. The DIGIC 4+ image processor offers great quality pictures while the Wi-Fi and NFC features make sharing them even easier. The standard ISO range is 100-6,400 and may even be extended to 12,800.

While DSLR has become a must-have for most photographers—professionals as well as amateurs, they also happen to be a lot more expensive than the normal point and shoot cameras. For example, the Nikon D3400 costs INR 47,450 and the D5300 costs INR 55,950. The Canon E0S 1300D price ranges from INR 31,995 to INR 41,695.

If you are worried about arranging funds for these, then you could start with a loan. Many financial institutes offer personal loans with attractive interest rates and easy procedures for availing of a loan. You may use your photography skills to earn some money by clicking pictures at weddings, birthday parties, and other events. You could use the money earned from this to pay off your loan.

Do remember: In both the above tips, you will have to prove your eligibility. You will have to give documents like your bank statement, employment certificate, salary slip, and others to prove your personal loan eligibility. On the other hand, for weddings and other events, you will have to show some samples to prove that you are good enough.

So, get your new DSLR and start clicking amazing quality photographs.
