Essentially a total newbie here. I'm looking at either a D3300 or a Rebel T5 for what will probably be exclusively outdoor shooting. I have no idea if I should get something cheaper and get a better lens (wouldn't even know where to start with lenses), or go mirrorless, or anything else.

I'd like to keep it under $500, and I know that probably limits me pretty greatly as far as equipment.

Thanks in advance.

I'm a bit late, but I would go with The [Canon T5] ( as recommended by a few others in the comments. It's just the best deal for your price range, you'll also need to pick up a decent sized SD card. If she is new to DSLRs I would recommend sticking with the kit lens for now. Save whatever is left in your budget, and use it later down the road when she has a better feel for the camera. People often think buying great glass is the key to great photos. While it is part of the equation later on, a big portion of taking better photos in the beginning is having a good working knowledge of photography along with the camera you are shooting on. Youtube has a ton of reviews, and tutorials on the Canon T5, I would recommend checking some of those out before purchasing.

u/GuilhermeFreire · 3 pointsr/DSLR

for around this price you don't really have a lot of choices.

You can find a Canon T5 or with some luck a T6

or the Nikon 3300

And the sony offer in this price range is the 5100, that is a mirrorless, nor a DSLR.

I do prefer the Canon, but mostly because I have a Canon and lots of accessories. I bought a T6 for my sister so she can borrow what she needs.

Used market is a mess... Sometimes you get a Canon 5D for 300, and sometimes you can't even get a T5i... And you never know about the shutter, if it is busted or working fine.

Buy new or refurbished, it is "safer".

I would consider a little bit higher price point and maybe a mirrorless.

It sounds like you're looking for a quality entry level DSLR. There are many to choose from. Here are a few:

> Neither of them are great for video though.


/u/Lifting_Dad, instead of a [$399 Canon T5] (, you might want to consider a [$254.88 Canon EOS M mirrorless with a fast 22mm f2.0 STM lens from Amazon Warehouse Deals] (

For videography, this camera will give you much better results - especially with the free Magic Lantern firmware modification.

Here is the image quality this camera can produce:





Fashion (shot in Magic Lantern RAW):

Live music (shot in Magic Lantern RAW):

Below $400, this little camera is a much better choice for video than either the T3 or the T5.

Hope this is helpful and good luck!

u/pigeonchase · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm saving up for a new Canon EOS Rebel T5 camera. It's a few years old model so it's affordable in the camera world, but still a good chunk of change. Slowly but surly though!

The other item I'm dreaming of, but more in an unrealistic way, is a KitchenAid stand mixer. Those babies are legends for baking but it's so much to drop on one appliance.

Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis When I was dead broke, man I couldn't picture this.

> It's private property so if their rules say lenses 3 inches and less, then bring 3 inches and less. One way to get more bang for your buck is to bring a nice prime lens.

Just one problem:

> Cameras with detachable lenses or flashes are not permitted.

I just can't believe these draconian rules are still around... BANNED! vs Come on in!. It's all about the scary detachable lens, hell my 35mm OM-10 wouldn't be allowed in since it has a detachable lens! But it's ok, a $2.5k full frame point and shoot is cool.

u/av4rice · 2 pointsr/photography

> is all that little extra stuff a bunch of crap?


The 75-300 is no good either.

But the 18-55 + 70-300 kit option on that listing is a decent deal (you can throw out some of the extra stuff). Or grab the 18-55 + 55-250 kit here:

Look into a 50mm f/1.8 STM for a cheaper lens that can do shallow depth of field. Or a 35mm f/2 for a more general use focal length. Or Yongnuo's knockoff 35mm f/2 for a cheap option at that focal length.

If you want to get into photography than you'll need a mirrorless camera or a DSLR, something like a Coolpix won't cut it. Basically any DSLR or mirrorless will do the job but something more modern like the Canon T5 is a great choice.

I would recommend you skip those Amazon camera bundles because apart from the camera and the kit lens, everything else is usually crap. The memory card will be slow, the tripod will be wobbly and those lens adapters are garbage. You can get the T5 here for dirt cheap if its refurbished. Also, even those the 75-300mm lens is a genuine Canon it has a reputation for having poor image quality.

This is what I currently use. About to upgrade though. It's definitely good enough for your first few years. And then if you start enjoying photography you just buy a nice lens.

u/ethanbrecke · 1 pointr/ExposurePorn

Looked around some. Is this a good Camera? Click Here

u/pburgh36 · 1 pointr/photography

Is this a good deal for the Canon Rebel T5? I'm wanting to get into astrophotography and am wondering if this is a good place to start. I posted earlier but it kind of got buried.

u/zsaile · 1 pointr/AskPhotography

I wonder if it might be a better idea to get something like this:

Like you said couldn't hurt to have the same model as them since they have a zoom lens we could borrow.

u/kosherpuppy · 1 pointr/space

Here's the equipment I used for this image:

Telescope -> Celestron Advanced VX 8 inch ($1199, but smaller scopes are much cheaper, you just need the equatorial mount)

Camera -> Canon Rebel T5 (currently $375)

I also used a free trial of PixInsight for image processing

u/itsdageek · 1 pointr/teenagers

Saving for College/ Car, imo. Or a camera, if the money is burning a hole in your pocket. (1200D)

u/xrjon0609 · 1 pointr/photography

I have the Canon T3i which is a nice starter. And now they have the Canon T5 which is comparable. I would call them both entry level and you can get the T5 in a nice combo pack with a normal lens and telephoto for like $450 on Amazon Prime.

If you want to buy new, you can get the Rebel T5 with kit lens for around there. You could also go with a used 60D. But that is without a lens.

Canon EOS Rebel T5 Digital SLR Camera Kit with EF-S 18-55mm IS II Lens

There was an "approved cameras" list and I was like oh ffs.

u/elijahf · 1 pointr/Cameras

T5 and Nikon D3300 are both $400 new on Amazon, however the D3300 has substantially better image quality.

u/anthemredit · 1 pointr/photography

So ive always wanted to get into photography since i was like, 9. 7 years, 2 jobs later, and ive decided its time to purchase my first "camera."

My budget is 600$(maybe 10-50$+) ive looked at two cameras so far but i dont know which is better, what to look for, ect. If someone could help me and give me a few more cameras to choose from(with some explanation) it would be very appreciated!

cameras i was looking at:

u/Joeeeeeey · 1 pointr/photography

Ok, ok. What do you mean exactly with kit lens? Is it just a regular lens? And why not just buying the body + the kit lens all in one?

Here's what I found:
For example if I choose the canon 1200D camera, here it's the body + 18-55mm:

Then I would buy the 50mm f/1.8 lens additionally:

Or do you mean I should just buy the body:

Can you explain me what you mean with shooting in raw?

I would be very thankful if you could check the canon 1200D out :)
