Passionate about photography? Looking for a DSLR without burning a hole in your pocket?

Well, we have you covered with this list of best entry-level DSLR cameras for the budding photographers. These DSLRs can take professional quality photographs while being budget-friendly. DSLRs allow for excellent control and precision over the minutest details and let you tinker with a myriad of settings. These cameras have much bigger and superior sensors along with faster image processors as compared to the humble point and shoot cameras. Supplementing it are the better focusing points, faster capture speeds, and superior low-light performance. You also get the flexibility to swap the standard 18-55mm lens kit with a telephoto one for wildlife photography or a prime lens kit for indoor event photography. Some DSLRs even come with GPS for geotagging photographs and Wi-Fi to transfer data.

We have done all the research for you to come up with this list, so you can just focus via the lens rather than focusing on searching for a camera.

1. Canon EOS 700D

best dslr cameras under 50k canon eos 700d

Price: Rs. 36,395

Includes- (18-55mm IS II Lens + 55-250mm IS II Lens + 8GB card + carry case)

The Canon 700D is an 18-megapixel CMOS sensor camera with an STM (Stepper Motor) lens with optical image stabilisation. STM lens provides faster-capturing speeds while keeping the noise in check. It features a Hybrid CMOS autofocus system which is a 9-point all cross-type system to ensure swift and accurately focused still images or videos. Ergonomically, the camera is similar to the Canon 650D. It comes with a 3-inch swivel touchscreen display. The touchscreen on this one is a bit more responsive though and is a breeze to change settings and to view and edit pictures. It is powered with the newer 14-bit DIGIC 5 processor which is faster and efficient than the DIGIC 4 and DIGIC 4+ processors we get to see in the lower variants from canon. It is a value-for-money product at this price point with the bundled telephoto 55-250mm lens but does miss out on some features like GPS and Wi-Fi.

Key features:

  • 18-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor

  • 14-bit DIGIC 5 processor

  • ISO 100-12800

  • 9-Point all cross-type Autofocus system

  • 3 inch Vari-Angle articulating Touchscreen LCD Monitor

  • 360-degree rotatable mode dial

  • Full HD video at 30fps

2. Pentax K-50

best dslr cameras under 50k pentax k-50

The Pentax K-50 features a 16.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor and is powered by the PRIME M image processor. It gets a relatively high ISO range of 100-51200 and makes use of the in-camera Shake Resistant (SR) feature. It gets 11-Point Autofocus system with 9 cross-type sensors in the middle for accurate and consistent focusing. The glass pentaprism viewfinder helps you achieve excellent accuracy in framing. Moreover, it gets a full weather shielded body for use in harsh conditions. The Pentax K-50 also ditches the external mic support, which is quite a downer.

Key features:

  • 16.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor

  • PRIME M image processor

  • 3-inch LCD

  • Full HD 1080p Video at 30fps

  • SAFOX IXi+ 11-Point Autofocus system

3. Nikon D5300

best dslr cameras under 50k nikon d5300

Price- Rs. 43,500 (18-55mm lens kit)

Stepping up from the Nikon D5200, we have this bad boy here. The Nikon D5300 comes with by far the best sensor and image processor combination at this price point. Nikon ditched the anti-aliasing filter on this one which in turn results in sharper image quality. Ergonomically, it is a bit more compact than the D5200 which is quite apparent as you get a firmer hold of the camera. It sports a 24.1-megapixel DX CMOS sensor and gets a 39-point autofocus system with a capability of burst speed shots of up to 5 frames per second. It has an improved battery to support the bigger 3.2-inch swivel display, GPS, and Wi-Fi features.

best dslr cameras under 50k canon eos 750d

Price: Rs 46,799

Includes- (18-55mm IS STM Lens + 8GB memory card + carry bag)

The successor to the Canon 700D, the Canon EOS 750D is not a mere update. It features an all-new 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor as compared to the 18-megapixel ones and is powered by a new and more efficient DIGIC 6 image processor. It gets an STM lens and Hybrid Autofocus system. For capturing those fast moving objects, it takes help of its 19-Point all cross type Autofocus points. The articulating 270 degrees 3-inch touchscreen is carried over from its predecessor. Also, it features connectivity features like GPS, Wi-Fi and NFC which were absent in the Canon 700D. The letdown, however, is the video recording aspect in which it fails to capture FullHD at 60fps which its rival the Nikon D5300 happily obliges. Also, the low light video performance is quite mediocre, and if this is your priority, then you should look at other prospects.

Key features:

  • 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor

  • Hybrid autofocus with 19-Point all cross-type AF

  • DIGIC 6 image processor

  • ISO 100-12800

5. Nikon D7000

best dslr cameras under 50k canon eos 700d

Price: Rs 49,000

Includes- (18-105mm VR II Lens + 8GB memory card + camera bag)

Released back in 2010, this powerhouse of a DSLR is still a hot seller and puts to shame some of the DSLRs of today. It is made of a magnesium alloy body and feels premium and ergonomically correct with the rubberized parts at the right places. To increase its ruggedness factor, it gets a full weather shielded body to ensure it keeps clicking even in harsh environments. The Nikon D7000 gets a bump in the resolution as it features a 16.2-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and is powered by an EXPEED 2 image processor. It features a plethora of 39-Point autofocus point system with continuous autofocus mode. The 3-inch LCD gets a polysilicon treatment and a secondary monochromatic display which provides an overview before proceeding. It can shoot Full HD videos at 24fps. It takes in two SD card inputs which work in tandem for additional storage, or the secondary card could act as a backup in case the primary card fails. The Nikon D7000 may be an old bloke, but it has the ‘Swag’ and inherits some features from the higher full frame cameras, and only cons though are the weight factor and lack of connectivity features like Wi-Fi and GPS.

  • 16.2-megapixels DX CMOS sensor

  • EXPEED 2 image processor

  • ISO 100-6400 (Expandable up to 25,600)
