Since the Nikon introduction of the Nikon D3000 all the way back in 2009, Nikon has put out super affordable entry level DSLR’s. Now in 2019 they have continued to do so with the Nikon D3500 which comes in at under $400 with one lens and under $500 with two lenses. I decided to take the D3500 out into the Real World to see how it handles shooting college gymnastics. I used the two kit lenses, 18-55 and 70-300 as well as the Nikon 70-200 2.8E FL professional lens. I wanted to show you how you can take control of your camera and get quality results even with the kit lenses.

Just when you think you know what Nikon’s going to do, they release the Nikon D780 DSLR replacing the D750. The Nikon D750 was my most recommended full-frame middle of the road DSLR ever. Is the D780 just a DSLR version of the Nikon Z6 Mirrorless camera? The answer to that is pretty much, it shares everything accept the mirror and two card slots.

  • Fast live-view focusing
  • Tilting touchscreen
  • Currently expensive
  • Big and heavy

What should you look for when buying a new DSLR?

A DSLR remains the cheapest way to get a camera with interchangeable lenses and a viewfinder (you’ll find most entry-level mirrorless cameras don’t have viewfinders). But what else should you consider when choosing one?

The main differences between an entry-level DSLR and a more advanced one are usually in the camera’s design, sensor and shooting features. Beginner DSLRs like the Nikon D3500 are often smaller than their more premium equivalents, which might be important to you, though this usually means a lack of weather-proofing and fewer manual controls.

The size difference is often also related to sensor size. More affordable DSLRs tend to have APS-C size sensors, while pro-friendly ones like the Nikon D850 are full-frame cameras. There is no outright ‘better’ sensor size, with each having their own advantages and drawbacks. To find out more about these, check out our Full-frame cameras: do you really need one?feature.

Not sure how to decide between a beginner DSLR and a mid-range model? Paying a bit more for the latter will usually get you increased shooting flexibility. The extra features you tend to get are improved continuous shooting speeds (handy for shooting sport or wildlife), superior high ISO performance (useful in lower light), and sometimes an extra memory card slot.
