Canon EOS 4000D

The most budget-friendly DSLR currently available, Canon is a popular choice for beginners. The 4000D manages this price by sacrificing some of the construction quality. However, it can still pack a punch, thanks to a tried and tested 18MP APS-C sensor, borrowed from the popular 1300D. The 4000D offers shooters a 9-point phase detection autofocus system, 3fps continuous shooting speed and 100-6400 ISO range. There’s also a handy guided menu system – great for learning.

If you like to experiment, there’s a range of Creative Filters, such as Toy Camera or Fish-eye, while the Scene Intelligent Auto will help you get the best shots from the start. You’re able to switch between different Picture Styles, such as Portrait, Landscape or Monochrome, with each adding a different look to your shots. The kit also comes with an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III lens, which is a great everyday walkabout optic.

While maybe not the best in test, looking a bit cheap and weathered against the competition, it is very budget friendly.
