Photographer Captures The Cutest Squirrel Photo Shoot Ever 3

A DSLR, or Digital Single Lens Reflex, camera can help one achieve so much more when it comes to picture-taking but the features of a DSLR can get pretty confusing for those who aren’t very familiar with it. So here are ten very easy-to-use DSLRs for newbies in the scene of professional photography or those who simply want more than what a point-and-shoot compact camera can provide.

Top Pick – Nikon D5600

If you had to stop this review right now and buy a camera, you wouldn’t go wrong with the D5600. It has WiFi and Bluetooth for connectivity, a 3.2″ articulating touchscreen and continuous auto-focus when shooting video. With all of this it is still simple to use and budget-friendly.

Best Budget Friendly DSLR – Panasonic Lumix FZ80

If you want a great DSLR for a great price, then the Panasonic Lumix FZ80 is for you. With 4k video recording, an 18.1 megapixel and advanced low-light settings, you can’t go wrong. Biggest drawback is that you can’t change the lens, but for under $400 you will be hard pressed to find a camera as versatile with features such as Wi-Fi connectivity.

Best Entry Level DSLR – Canon SL3

If you are looking for a camera that is easy to learn and has newer features, then this is the one for you. The Canon Rebel SL3 has features only more advanced cameras have at a low price, such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and in-camera editing. If you want to dip your toes into the water of photography and still capture great shots as a novice, this is your pick.

Best DSLR for Outdoors – Pentax K-70

This DSLR is perfect for the outdoorsy person. The K-70 has been designed with a body that will weather almost any harsh outdoor elements. In addition to that, it has a very useful shake-reduction system for any bumps you might encounter along the trails.

Best DSLR for Travel – Nikon D3400

Are you traveling and don’t want to be bogged down by a heavy camera but still want great shots? Look no further than the Nikon D3400. It is our lightest pick at .87 pounds. Compact, lightweight, easy to use and intuitive. It has built-in bluetooth so you can pair it with your cell phone for simple sharing of those great travel shots.
