What Are the Most Popular DSLR Cameras for Beginners?

Nowadays, new cameras are being released every month to the market. Still, some DSLR camera models remain the popular ones over the years. Here is a compilation of the most popular DSLR cameras for beginners.


Popular DSLR Cameras

After a huge success with the previous models such as Canon Rebel T3i and T4i, Canon launched the Canon Rebel T5i (700D) in 2013. I own the earlier model, T3i, and it is absolutely awesome camera for a beginner. It is very light weight and it takes stunning photos as they were taken by a professional photographer. The T5i, like T3i, comes with an instructional guide built in, like the Nikon D3300. However, after experimenting with the Nikon for a while, the user interface felt more suitable for a beginner on the Canon DSLR. All in all, Canon T5i is a perfect choice if you want to take your photography to the next level.
