As an amateur photographer myself, I know how difficult it can be to find the right equipment. You don’t know what you’re looking for, you’ve never even heard of ‘aperture’, and just what on earth is a ‘prime lens’ anyway? Here are the top 5 best cameras for beginner photographers!
Panasonic Lumix GX9
It’s simple to use, it’s high quality, and it’s small. This is a stylish camera that easily storable. It’s capable of taking 4K photos and video with its 20.3 megapixels, producing incredible footage. The touch screen is 3 inches wide and has impression focus abilities. It’s great for travelling and equally great value for money. This Panasonic has both facial recognition and an intelligent microphone system. The best camera for on-the-go photography, it’s ideal for beginners.
Canon EOS M50
This camera has the same screen capabilities as the Panasonic, but more megapixels. 24.1MP means it takes better photographs of a higher quality. It’s especially good for video as it has action-tracking features and captures more frames per second. It has a Creative Assist mode which helps beginners. Although the Canon is far bulkier than the Panasonic, it remains lightweight and is the perfect camera for vloggers.
The Fujifilm has a slightly larger screen than the previous two cameras which accounts for its increased resolution. Its battery life isn’t the best, and there is also no headphone jack. Despite this, it’s capable of producing impressive photos that don’t need extra editing. It’s a small lightweight camera that’s great for images.
One of the largest beginners cameras on the market, it has an incredible battery life and an impressive motion sensor. It’s relatively cheap for its capabilities but can only take 1080p video. The Nikon is ideal for photography as it has one of the best image stabilisation systems in the camera world!
Olympus PEN E-PL9
The Olympus has the same 3-inch screen as the Panasonic and Canon, but far fewer megapixels. It doesn’t take as high-quality images but can produce impressive videos. The camera has a 180-degree screen, making it ideal for vlogs, and is lightweight and compact. It has a Micro Four Thirds imaging sensor and 3-axis image stabilization system which makes it ideal for video taking.
