  1. i bought my 1st dslr NIKON D5200 FRM PAYTM for Rs.25k, i m really happy with it.

  2. Canon 700d is available for lesser price online with 18-55 and 55-250mm lens and is much better option than this.

  3. Hi…gogi sir

    I am an online retailer and I am looking for a budget pro camera for product photography kindly suggest any and my budget is 20-30k.

    One question more The nikon d3200 is also using the same APS-C Size sensor and the camera which you have mentioned in the above article is also using the same sensor, then why spend extra 10k, if I am not getting any better photos by spending extra 10k.

    1. Absolutely. India is Canon country – people prefer canon cameras, which is why the price difference. I was a Canon user but switched to Nikon D3100 in 2008 – since then, I’ve seen that in all models released, Nikon offers much more value for money, in cameras also in lenses (take a look at Sigma lenses with Nikon mount). BTW, my D3100 is still in use and has’nt needed any repairs, though I did take it for thorough cleaning once – so no reliability issues. IMO you should go with D3300 or D5200 depending on your budget – both will take equally good pictures.

  4. for fashion photography, which is good? is Nikon d5200 good for that? its affordable with 18-55 lens.

    1. Nikon D5200 is really a good option. its has vari-angle lcd screen. and its lot better than 1300d of canon. alsmost equal to Canon eos D700

    1. Who said! a lot many amateur are buying this range DSLRs. Many starts with D3200 which is priced around 23-24K. Amateur is not related to cost but with experience and expertise.

    2. AMATEUR does not refer to a Financial Status of a person. It is just that, he is very much interested in the field, but not to the extent of making a profession out of it (ie., devoting time, effort & money completely to it). So, an Amateur does not necessarily mean a poor chap. Quite a few of us, don’t think twice to buy Mobiles costing in excess of 30K, some just out of habit. Isn’t it.?
