Three entry-level DSLR’s below 450 euros – Which performs best?




While many people now use their smartphones as their primary camera, it can not compete with the image quality setting options and versatility of a real camera. Where you used a lot of money had to resign for a camera with interchangeable lenses, it is now quite different. For relatively little money buy an SLR, and it is no surprise that this type of camera – and especially the entry-level models – still frequently goes over the counter.

System cameras are indeed growing strongly, but in relative terms they are the entry-level segment often more expensive and there is still the psychological effect in that many buyers rely on old rules, a DSLR is considered the equivalent of quality. Thereby offering DSLR’s compared to similar priced system cameras alongside LCD also a viewfinder and the lens for DSLR’s offer is far greater, although figures show that most buyers never outgrow the kit lens.

DSLR & # 039; s Canon Nikon Sony

Just like two years ago , we have therefore made ​​a round-up of entry-level DSLR with kit lens, with a price of up to 450 euros. Designed for people who want more quality than can provide phone or compact camera, or photography hobby more like approach and need adjustments and read interchangeable.

To again find four recent entry level DSLR’s proved a challenge, especially as camera manufacturers do not refresh as quickly as the entry-level models. And if that is the case, then keep the old cameras for a while in the market for a significantly lower price, making these models logically for a long time remain the most popular. It would of course be some strange yet to choose now for the Canon EOS 1200D instead of 1300D, especially since the former is no longer produced and declining availability.

Four three models

So we chose the 1300D, which, incidentally, but differs on minor points of the 1200D. And for the Nikon D3300, which was just newly two years ago and then also all participated in the round-up, but where currently no successor has been released. We also asked Sony to the A58, because the newer A68 is too expensive compared to the other loafers. Sony Netherlands could not deliver this camera because the supplies from Japan are stopped (partly due to the recent earthquake in Kumamoto). Fortunately Tweaker was henk1994 willing to lend his copy to us, for which many thanks!

Finally, we looked for a Pentax entry-level DSLR in the same price range. Two models were eligible, but Pentax was both – the K S1 and K-50 – not deliver. The K-S1 also appears to be End-of-Life because he’s practically nowhere available . Both the K S1 and K-50 are also no longer called on the US Pentax-site, but the Dutch still. Because we are not a manufacturer wanted to record a much more expensive model in the equation, we have restricted ourselves to the three remaining fabirkanten DSLR: Canon, Nikon and Sony. Includes kit cost it less than 450 euros.
