u/TheConcave · 7 pointsr/longboarding

I want a camera for filming and editing, but my budget is around $500. My friend has a gopro, so I don't see point in me getting one. There is three cameras I'm looking at right now, but I'm a noob to this stuff and could use some help.

Nikon 1 J1

Nikon D3100

Canon EOS Rebel T3

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I'll also need money for a tripod, and that would have to come out of my budget too

u/rob79 · 6 pointsr/GoodValue

A lot of older DSLR's are a good deal. I mean, the T3i /u/smoothcam72 suggested is really great, but as a beginner you'd probably be just as happy with a T3 which can be had for less. ($386). That would let you squeeze in another (used) lens and still stay under your $500 budget.

The thing with a DSLR is that you should put as much money as possible into your lenses and the body should really be just "good enough" (unless you want to go pro). Not only will your lens really impact the quality of the photo (more so than the body) but they also don't lose value (as much). A good lens now will still be a good lens in 20 years, whereas that T3i (or T3, or whatever) will be totally obsolete.

Since you're hiking you'll want a good lens for landscapes I would imagine. The kit lens will definitely get you started, but you'll probably find yourself wanting to get a new lens before you want a new body.

Don't get caught up in megapixels either, the T3 is 12.2MP, but honestly, are you planning on blowing up your stuff to poster size? You could make quite a large print from a 12MP image.

EDIT: For reference, you can print a 12MP image as a very high quality 8"x10", whereas an 18MP image gives you similar quality at 11"x14". Not a huge difference.

Firstly, technique and good skills will take you a lot further than simply buying a more expensive camera. So whatever you do, I would suggest that you put in some time and effort to learning the basics of photography.

That link went to the camera 'body only' for $498. I was surprised that when you click the option to include the 16-50mm lens, it was only $499. Make sure that you get a lens with it.

Personally, I'd be more inclined to suggest an actual DSLR camera. Something like THIS or THIS.

Shooting cars is actually one of the more tricky things to shoot, so it will take some learning and plenty of practice, but that will be much more important than the brand of camera that you get.

I would really suggest getting a good tripod, as that will really allow for higher quality shots, especially as the light levels get low.

u/UdonUdon · 3 pointsr/photography

Um... those are not the cheapest DSLRs released in the last 18 months.

For a frame of reference, "last 18 months" begins in February 2010, and all of the ones listed include the kit 18-55mm.

u/camopdude · 2 pointsr/WeAreTheFilmMakers

I was going to suggest a Canon as well, maybe you can save up for this one.

You can get it on QVC for 6 easy payments. It doesn't have an audio input, though.

u/BillyTheRatKing · 2 pointsr/photography

If you positively cannot wait to get into a dedicated camera with manual controls and interchangeable lenses, you can get a used Canon Rebel T3 with a couple lenses on Amazon for $200. It's not the latest and greatest and your phone might actually give better results in some cases. There are some other suggestions in the buying guide too.

u/michaelscarn112 · 2 pointsr/astrophotography

I posted earlier about what camera would be good for widefield AP. Just found out my girlfriend has this camera: https://www.amazon.com/Canon-Digital-18-55mm-discontinued-manufacturer/dp/B004J3Y9U6

Would this be good?

u/Gackt · 2 pointsr/photography

Here's the deal. Upgrading to a canon g12 is cool but it's still a P&S with a crippple manual mode.

So one of your others option is interchangeable lens cameras like micro four thirds cameras or DSLRs.

Don't be scared of getting an dslr, entry level ones have automatic (P&S style) modes just like your old point & shoots and will take much better photos with the same amount of easiness so why cripple yourself if size isn't issue? You also get access to amazing lens and go manual when you need it, most of the time most photographers are shooting aperture priority/shutter priority anyway.

Micro four third cameras have much better quality (9 times the sensor size) than P&S they are kinda small but size isn't an issue as you said so the problem is than a capable MFT (micro four thirds) camera like the Panasonic GF2 cost as much as an entry level Canon (T3) which takes pictures just as good as the $1700 Canon 7D only it has slower pictures per second and worse autofocus. And you also get access to the amazing catalog of canon lenses which is much better than MFT lenses currently available, everything I said about Canon also applies to nikon I just simply don't know the model numbers. Remember DSLRs are not harder to use than MFT cameras, and in fact, in manual mode DSLRs are actually easier due to the interfaces used. Also better autofocus=easier

Sony NEX: similar to MFT, a bit better, but pathetic choice of lenses, and overpriced accessories. You can use an adapter to access the Alpha mount lenses by sony/carl zeiss but you lose autofocus and still have to deal with the shitty body. Size isn't an issue to you so something better between MFT and common DSLRs is Sony's Translucent Mirror Technology cameras, they have the same quality of DSLRs but lack an optical viewfinder so whatever you see through the EVF (electronic view finder) is delayed so not good for sports but not a problem for you, also cheaper and offers the 10 frames (photographs) per second shooting found in $1500+ cameras (hell, the $1700 7D has only 8 FPS) for the same or sligthly cheaper price of an MFT camera or an entry level DSLR.

TL;DR Size isn't an issue for you so get an entry level Canon/Nikon/Sony (preferably nikon or canon) DSLR, they have easy-mode shootings so don't worry about that and you can get cheap lenses for screwing around with no worry then upgrade later to better ones. Same quality of a $1700 dslr but less FPS and slower/less accurate autofocusing (though still faster than P&S). $150-200 more than a g12. _If you don't wanna deal with interchangeable lenses stick with P&S and get a Canon SX13IS if you need the zoom or the G12 if you don't.

Any questions please ask and I hope I helped you.

> one that will last me a long time

How long? Are you talking about physical longevity before it breaks? Or meeting your needs over a certain period of time? What will your needs be / how do you anticipate they will change over that amount of time?

> I've been thinking about getting this one but there is also this one which would be best to get?

Either is fine but you might as well go with the T3i if you can afford it. It's more feature-rich.

> Does it really matter the Megapixel difference?

Depends what you shoot and what you're trying to accomplish, but probably not. I shot for several years and got good results with fewer pixels than either of those cameras have. People have been able to take great photos with less.

u/alfabetsoop · 2 pointsr/photography

Canon T3

There it is on Amazon. As you can see, a little over your price range. But a quick search on eBay...

Canon T3

That's a pretty damn good deal. As a Canon fanboy, the T3 is what I think you should upgrade to for your first DSLR. Great camera and decent kit lens for that price.

u/traal · 2 pointsr/pics

> Only thing you lacked was a $50,000 camera and lighting kit.

Or a $500 camera, $106 lens, and $516 worth of lighting equipment.

u/polkadotsunday · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'd really love an slr camera because I've always loved photography and deep down want to be a photographer, but that's super expensive.

Something that is reasonable is this biography on Caligula. I think out of all the Roman Emperors he's my favorite just because of how crazy he is. I'd love to learn what I wasn't taught about him in my Ancient Rome class this past semester.

u/incrediblegraphics · 2 pointsr/AmateurPhotography

(DSLR camera) Canon Rebel T3, $299 most places. 12mp, 2.5" screen, comes with 18-55mm lens.
I've had a bit of experience with this one in the past. Gives you great quality for the price, can blow up pictures to at least 20x30 poster size easily and fairly simple controls, buttons and settings (which includes a completely manual option also.)


I personally have the Canon Rebel T3i right now though. (also a DSLR) It was around $650. 18mp, flip out screen (great for filming yourself if you want to flip the screen toward yourself), video capability in 1080p HD, 3" screen on the back, comes with 18-55mm lens also but totally worth the upgrade. It's more for serious artwork if youre looking to publish, photoshop or sell anything. I highly recommend this or any of the Canon Rebels.


u/filemeaway · 1 pointr/pics

Oops, yeah, you're right. Although, the ole T3 is only $450. Still not something I'd necessarily recommend.

u/LeRadioactiveNarwhal · 1 pointr/photography

> canon t3i

thats a bit on the expensive side for me. I jusrt spent $250 on a new mic setup is this one good for a beginner? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004J3Y9U6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A11UAZQJHVFZ21

I'm a Canon man myself

u/caraeeezy · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Probably the nice camera I have had my eye on. I never added it to my WL because, I mean shit, it is expensive. But I have a passion for live music and the culture that surrounds it. I would LIVE behind a camera if I had one that was nice enough. But mostly, those pure moments when an artist is on stage, pretty much bearing their hard work, their art, their soul to you; those are the moments I wish I could capture (on a device better than my phone).

Then on the other hand, I am an avid people watcher. When I lived closer to the airport, I would go for lunch and sit and watch people pass by and imagine what their lives are like. Or go on campus at a school to the main outdoor area and watch the students bustle by.

And let us not forget the most pure form of beauty there is; nature. I have wanted to do a project where I go to the same place, every day, and take a picture. Same angle, same exact time. And do it for a whole year. I just wonder what it will look like in a time lapse.

u/Eyemajeenyus · 1 pointr/photography

Hello r/photography!
I recently saved up enough money to buy my first serious camera. This Cannon EOS Rebel T3 caught my attention and I keep reading in the reviews that it is an excellent entry level camera. Is that a true statement? I would be willing to shell out some extra money for this T3i if it would be a better buy.
This Cannon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 or this Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 seem like good lenses to go along with them, but are they too much to soon?
Again, this would be my first major camera purchase. Would this be a solid purchase or is there another cheaper camera that would be just as good?

u/spandex_shmandex · 1 pointr/photography

Thank you!

It’s her first camera (besides her phone) and so I’m not sure of size preference.

Also, thanks for the links! I only Reddit on mobile, and never see the sidebar. I really like the chart showing options per budget.

You mentioned the 600d, which I had heard before in my other post. What do you think about the T3? I found one w/ lens for under $200. Since it’s fulfilled by Amazon, I get free shipping, and if there are any defects, Amazon takes care of it.

I have a Canon EOS Rebel T3 and a Celestron 114LCM telescope. Does anyone know of any telescope lens adapters that would work for this setup? (Preferably under $30)

Thank you.

u/kolosok17 · 1 pointr/photography

Hi guys, I am not sure whether this is a good place to post this, so please feel free to delete if it violates the rules.

I am looking to upgrade from a Canon T3 to a smaller, potentially mirrorless, camera. I would like to sell my T3 + gear and use that cash toward the new camera.

What is a reasonable price to ask for this stuff:

Canon EOS Rebel T3 Digital SLR Camera DS126291

Canon Zoom Lens EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS II

Tiffen 58mm UV Protection Filter

Case Logic SLRC-201 SLR Zoom Holster (Black)

AmazonBasics Backpack for SLR/DSLR Cameras and Accessories - Black

Generic 58mm Hood

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens - Fixed

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS II Telephoto Zoom Lens


u/mathematical · 1 pointr/AskPhotography

> recently I won an cheap Samsung P&S worth $80 which won't charge anymore.

What model is the camera? Can you pull the battery out or do you have to plug in the camera to charge? You can usually pick up a cheap china battery on eBay for $10 or less. It's good to have an extra point and shoot for snapshots when you're not lugging around a nicer camera.

>The camera can be a P&S if you find one better than a mirrorless, since there's no DSLR for $300.

Definitely look for used. I'm not sure how big your hands are, but I shoot a Canon 40D, and I got the Camera + memory cards + portrait grip for $300 over a year ago. With the clearancing of the Canon 60D, they're most certainly cheaper now. I see in another comment you were looking at a T3. You can actually buy a new one right now on Amazon for $299.99. Just as a heads up.

u/blacktoad · 1 pointr/astrophotography

18-55mm IS II. It was [bundled with the camera] (http://www.amazon.com/Canon-Rebel-T3-Digital-18-55mm/dp/B004J3Y9U6) when I bought it.

Is this something you would recommend upgrading?

u/MagicalHoneydew · 1 pointr/photography

Thanks for this GREAT advice on looking for a T3 instead of a T3i. This immediately knocks out $200 or so in price and saves me alot!

I have some questions:

buying used lens does it have any issue vs. new ones?

I looked at T3 just for a quick browse and came across these two T3s. I don't understand exactly what is the difference between the two, could you help me?




u/sweetbeauty · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm saving up for this camera. I've also stated doing MTurk, so hopefully that will help speed up the process. Money is pretty tight right now for me though, but I hope to get it by my birthday! :)

u/rsmichaud · 1 pointr/photography

Stupid question, I'm very new to photography. I know my way around my Canon Rebel T3, but that's about it.

That being said, will this lens be compatible with my camera? I'm pretty sure it is, I just want to be certain before I place my order. Thanks in advance guys :)
