5 Entry-Level DSLR Cameras for Startup Photographers

Are you ready to take your photography to the next step and to look for entry-level DSLR cameras? In contrast to the compact cameras, DSLR is a big step up when it comes to image quality. It offers the user a far more manual control and provides the full opportunity to change the lenses to fulfill the demands of individual projects. You can also consider buying a mirrorless camera if you’re an amateur photographer, but you won’t be able to find an electronic viewfinder with 4k consumer camera at the same price as a DSLR. So, it’s all up to you now!

1. Nikon D3300

Let’s start with the Nikon’s D3300 DSLR camera. It features 24.2-megapixel sensor with the least image noise, which is ISO3200; it produces better results at high sensor sensitivities. Similar to the other Nikon’s pricey DSLR’s, it comes with a non-anti-aliasing filter that helps in maximizing the sharpness of the images. It’s an easy-to-use camera with the smart guidance mode – which is a helpful learning tool to understand the significant camera features along with the collapsible 18 to 55mm lens kit. I know, it’s a shame that you won’t get a touchscreen in this model and Wifi connectivity feature. However, you will get a Wi-Fi adapter.

2. Canon EOS 750D

Now comes the Canon 750D, which is the latest addition to the EOS category. It’s a pricey camera, but the features it contains is worth it. It has a 24.2 MP sensor that will produce stunning, high-quality images with significantly lower noise with higher ISO sensitivity. The canon’s 750D also comes with an improved auto-focus feature and the exposure metering systems, which were lacking in the Canon’s 700D model. 750D also comes with the NFC pairing and Wi-Fi feature. Even though it looks the same as its predecessor, meaning you’ll enjoy the touch screen.

3. Nikon D5500

When it comes to the Nikon D5500, it’s the direct competitor of the 750D. Nikon’s 3000 range of cameras is specially designed for the price-conscious amateur photographers and on the other hand, D5000 range is for those who wants to play with creativity. Nikon D5500 has been the first ever in the entire series to be launched with the touch screen feature along with the Wi-Fi feature. But, still, it lacks the GPS facility and also, its autofocus speed is too low. Its 24.2 MP non-anti-aliasing sensor is good and delivers excellent and clear photos.

4. Canon EOS 760D

Canon launched two versions of the EOS 700D, which is 750D and the 760D; which can be confusing. In fact, 750D and the 760D are almost identical internally. But, when it comes to the external controls, there’s a significant difference, particularly the inclusion of an LCD and a rear thumb wheel. These advanced features are only present in the professional models. If you’re an amateur photographer, then Canon EOS 750D is the best choice to go for.

5. Nikon D5300

Nikon’s D5300 was launched almost a year before the D5500 with some technical replacements. However, D5300 is a modern day camera as compared to the 700D. Both have the same 24.2-megapixel sensor with the same max ISO25600 image sensitiveness as for the D5500; whereas the replaced features of D5300 were autofocus (39-point) and the Expeed Four image processor. Although the D5300 doesn’t contain touch screen controls, you will get the GPS function. Moreover, D5500 gives more battery time than the D5300, but still, it’s a smarter purchase than the Canon 750D.

If you really are into photography, then you should invest in a DSLR camera that is good enough for amateurs. There are 5 models that are advisable for you: Nikon D3300, Canon EOS 750D, Nikon D5500, Canon EOS 760D and Nikon D5300. These cameras are user-friendly and come with a guidance mode to help you shoot top quality images despite being a beginner.

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

1. Camping

A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

2. Staycation

You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

3. Island Getaway

People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

4. Fancy Resort

Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

5. Road Trip

The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

6. Charter a Boat

If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

8. Themed Retreats

There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

9. Working Honeymoon

Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
