When choosing the best DSLR camera for beginners, there are a couple of different factors to take in consideration. Price, ease of use, and quality are the top three. I will give a brief review on some of the best out there, and cover these factors.First off, price. One of the most important factors in our decision making. If you want a good DSLR camera, you’re going to need to spend a little. However, I’m going to give examples of ones that are under $600.00. There is always the option of buying a used one if you choose.Quality is definitely an issue also. Some people may argue that this is usually their number one factor they take into account. People need to know if the hard earned money they’re spending is going to be worth it.Last but not least we’ll be talking about is how easy (or hard) are they to use. This is a common complaint with a lot of people that buy DSLR cameras. They feel they should be a lot easier to use. However, you do not need to be a rocket scientist or know how to split the atom to operate these.
Here’s some of the best DSLR cameras for beginners on the market:1. Nikon D3000People that own this camera cannot say enough about it. It is more geared towards beginners or amateur photographers, but still capable of awesome images all the same. It has actually been quoted as an “Outstanding Starter Camera”.Here’s some features of the Nikon D3000:Compact Design
2 megapixel imaging sensor
Split-second shutter response
3″ Color LCD monitor
Automatic Image Sensor Cleaning System
Nikon Guide Mode, which makes operation easy
Possible of shooting up to 3 frames per second
Image Stabilization lensPrice – The Nikon D3000 will run you right around $465.Quality – Most people believe that Nikon makes some of the best cameras on the market.Ease of use – Owners of the Nikon D3000 comment on how easy it is to use, and the Nikon Guide Mode helps you through any questions you might have.2. Canon EOS Rebel T3Here is another camera that owners just seem to love. It is just a little more than the Nikon D3000, but not enough to sway your decision into not buying it over the D3000. It is a very good entry-level camera from Canon.Some of the Rebel T3 features:7″ TFT color LCD display
2 megapixel imaging sensor
Has a full line of compatible Canon lenses
Has a broad range of ISO settings, which means shooting from sunrise to sunset turns out excellent

Sony Alpha A230L
Here is a nice entry level camera from Sony. I have actually seen reviews from people with higher-end Nikons switching to this one. Owners have commented that this camera is to the point, and easy to use. Basically takes spectacular pictures for beginners.Sony Alpha A230L features:7″ LCD Display
2 Megapixel image sensor
Capable of shooting up to 2.5 frames per second
In-camera mode image stabilization
Comes with 18-55 mm zoom lensPrice – The Sony Alpha A230L will only run you about $430Quality – Some owners prefer it over other higher priced modelsEase of use – Owners praise the simplicity of operationHopefully this little bit of info has helped you decide which is the best DSLR camera for beginners. The beauty of technology is the fact that all 3 of these cameras are excellent. It just depends on which one stands out to you a little more, and what your personal preference is.

Since it fits right over your camera’s existing lens system, a wide-angle and telephoto converter affects the full zoom range of your camera’s lens. A wide-angle converter increases your angle of view – scenes include more of the landscape, groups include more people, and interiors show more of the room. A .45x wide-angle converter DOUBLES your angle of view, allowing you to get twice as much in the picture (AND your telephoto setting also becomes wider; not zooming in as close). A 2.2x converter will double your camera’s maximum focal length, bringing things twice as close. An Opteka conversion lens can actually improve the image that your digital camera receives, and it’s about the only accessory that can. By eliminating flare and ghosting, the ugly cousins of reflection and refraction, before they get to your camera’s original lens system, your camera gets a much cleaner image to digitize. Plus, an Opteka converter allows you to use a more optimal part of your original lens system, resulting in more crisp imagery. Nothing changes the way you see the world like High Definition II, and no company does High Definition II like Opteka. In the professional setting, Opteka’s glass optics define High Definition. Change the way you view the world. Enjoy outstanding detail, enjoy enhanced clarity and enjoy Opteka. With an Opteka 5 piece Lens/Camera cleaning kit it contains everything you need to maintain your Digital Camera! It cleans hard to reach lenses, protects battery contacts, and is very easy and safe to use. Works excellent for lenses, cameras, filters, and it also easily cleans LCD panels. The lens cleaning solution is specially made for removing oil and dirt. The Opteka table top tripod is ideal for backyard observation or anywhere – an ultra-compact tripod is all you need! Opteka lenses are covered by a lifetime warranty.

Who knew the Italians made such spiffy shower fixtures? This showerhead comes from the high-end manufacturer, Gnutti Sebastiano & Figli S.p.A. The fixture has a polished chrome finish over triple-plated brass and features easily cleaned flexible spray nozzles with three adjustable spray patterns. A movable connecting joint makes it easy to aim the showerhead.
The fixture has a couple of interesting quirks. The flexible spray nozzle insert comes in a vibrant teal the color of surgical scrubs. Perhaps this is deliberate; maybe there is nothing cleaner than a doctor in surgical scrubs about to head into the operating room. The resulting chrome and teal color combo says “good hygiene.” In addition, the picture symbols for the three spray settings are not easy to understand. The icon for the left-hand setting looks like a mushroom, the middle icon looks like a comb, and the right-hand icon looks like a jellyfish. The mushroom setting presumably sprays a firm, swirling pattern; the comb a fine spray; and the jellyfish a coarse, pounding spray.
This fixture has only one downside. Adjusting the spray pattern is hard because the nozzle cover moves so stiffly. This would make it difficult for a child or someone with arthritic hands to change the spray. This fixture is suitable for anyone else who wants to enjoy good hygiene in style. –David Fagan

- Adjust from floor mounted slider, to tripod mounted slider to shoulder support in seconds!
- Doubles up as a shoulder brace for 5D, 7D and similar DSLR cameras and smaller camcorder users
- Hand grips also act as levelers for uneven surfaces. They can be adjusted without tools in a fraction of a second, you just press the button and turn, then release to lock!
- Handles can be adjusted in an instant to whatever position you like using one hand
- For standard Glidetrack sliding mode just flip them up in line with the track and you are set to go!
Doubling as both a slider and shoulder brace, the Glidetrack Shooter SD (Standard Duty) 30″ brings high-end polish to run-and-gun video productions. Designed as a lightweight and affordable alternative to more cumbersome dolly tracks, the Shooter SD gives you the power to create smooth, Hollywood-like tracking shots as well as stable handheld footage. Whether attached to a tripod (via the 1/4″ or 3/8″ mounting thread) or resting on its two scratch-free feet, the Shooter makes the most of its simple, industrial-grade design to deliver smooth-as-glass motion. When handheld shooting is required, the entire lightweight unit transfers easily from tripod to shoulder, its dual handgrips pivoting downward for two-handed support. A soft shoulder pad adds comfort and friction to keep shots stable and secure, aided further by a removable center handle. Ideal for video-enabled DSLRs and small-to-medium-sized camcorders, the Glidetrack Shooter SD lets you add visual panache to your productions, at minimal cost and weight.

- 7.4V Alternative to Canon BP-827
- Capacity: 2100mAh * Chemistry: Lithium-Ion
- Dimensions : 2.2 x 1.5 x 1.2″ (5.5 x 3.8 x 3cm) * Output Voltage: 7.4V
- 1-Year Limited Warranty
It’s always advisable to have a spare battery pack on hand when you’re shooting. When the camcorder’s original battery runs out of power, just pop in the replacement pack and keep going. The Pearstone BP-827 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack is a budget-friendly alternative to Canon’s BP-827. It’s compatible with the same camcorders the Canon BP-827 works with, and others specified by Canon as compatible in the future. And because the BP-827 is a lithium-ion battery it doesn’t suffer from the plague of memory effect – meaning you charge and recharge without worry.
