With Christmas just around the corner, finding the best budget DSLR camera, or perhaps the best digital SLR for the money, might not even be something you considered doing. If you are like me, you might be thinking that there is no such thing as a budget DSLR. I remember my first look at DSLR cameras with the camera price buster at the price of $900 or more, and then you needed a lens still!
Thankfully, times have changed and while you can still pay as much money as you want for the high quality DSLR cameras there are affordable entry level options now, too. So what do I think is the best digital SLR for the money right now? On sale today (Not a refurbished DSLR) is a Canon EOS Rebel T3 budget DSLR for the rather amazing price of $439.99. It even comes with a lens. I’m not a photography pro, so I don’t expect you to just take my word for it. Instead, watch this video and see what a professional has to say about this entry level DSLR.
Now that you are properly advised that this is not the camera of choice for professionals, but a solid entry level DSLR, it is up to you to decide if this is the best budget DSLR camera or not. I’ve looked around a lot recently and over the past several years and this is as good a price as I’ve seen on refurbished DSLR cameras, and refurbished DSLR cameras seem to be fairly difficult to come by.
If a budget DSLR isn’t what you are looking for, there are some other great deals on a variety of point and shoot cameras as well, with the lowest price reasonable for stuffing a stocking for only $49.99. From best budget DSLR camera to semi-professional DSLR and then back to very low priced point and shoot, there’s a camera to suit most budgets and needs here.
