How to Buy a Budget DSLR Camera Under 0
Buying a DSLR Camera for video of photography can be hard if you’re buying your first DSLR camera and you have no clue what you really need. I’ll help you guy some of the best budget dslr cameras under 0.

If you’re buying a dslr camera for video you need to think about the ISO Range and the whether it has an audio input jack.

If you’re buying a dslr camera for photography you have to thik about the ISO but also how many frames per second it can shoot and also what features it might have, such as dynamic range.

When you’re just starting you don’t need the most expensive body and if you go with an entry level dslr camera then you can spend more money on lenses and upgrade the camera body later.

    Thanks, very helpful. I'm planning on using my camera mostly for yt videos in a talk style like you're doing in this video. I also plan to do beauty tutorials. I do have low light in one of my key filming areas but I have artificial lighting which helps alot. I'm leaning towards the Canon t5i but I'm still researching. Also I have seen some really good videos with the Canon Powershot sx 40 12.1. Do you have an opinion on that camera? Tfs, God bless.

    Hi I have a lot of questions to ask. First of all I can't decide should I buy Cannon or Nikon. I use 45%videos and 55% pictures. If it is about canon I can't decide T5 or T5i I just check on Amazon and both almost have the same prices but the T5 come with a lot of accessories. And move to Nikon I know nothing about it. I am just started to find a suitable DSLR,it's my first time.Please help. Love your video. Thumb up.

    Would a DSLR or camcorder be better for hours of recording (like 3-4 hours at a time)?

    I have $325 and my T3i's shutter finally gave out on me. I want to move into the D series, but I'm not sure if I can get a decent camera that cheap. Are there any cameras that low in price?

    quick question, in Canada I can get a d3200 for around 250$ and the d3100 for 200 with the d5500 and d3300 for 400, all with lens kits, and the rebel series all over 450, except for eos1100d/t3 for 200.
    what should I get, I want a DSLR for a beginner, used for vlogging and utube videos. with a low budget of 350. what should I do? thx

    Hi!! I recently purchased the Nikon D3300 and I want to start recording youtube videos, I was wondering if you had any suggestions about products that would allow me to record and see what camera is filming at same time. I know this camera doesn't come with a pop out screen that would make this easy but I'm wondering If I can hook it up to my tablet and see my face as I record. Please let me know :)

    Yo Roberto. Big fan of the channel. Question for you. I found a good deal on a T5i on eBay but it has a high shutter count. Should this affect my decision on purchasing it if I'm only gonna be using the dlsr for video?

    I like this camera but it's too heavy for me. But I still want HDR mode for stills. Rebels only have HDR in creative mode without exposure compensation and without control over shutter or aperture.
    I really hope Canon brings HDR mode to Rebels, combining bracketed HDR images in post in software is cumbersome, and not very fun. Many smartphones have this feature through apps, Rebels do not.

    This is a 2002 video there must be some kind of mistake.
    I'm regretting investing so much in canon lenses and cameras, it seems like they are not going to catch up. the industrial designers at canon are doing it wrong, the marketing department is really doing it wrong (poorly made video add) and mostly the specs and innovation of this camera just sucks compared to any other camera manufacturer, if in 6 months canon does`t step up, this is the end, the reliable good DSLRs we all loved from canon are going to disappear.
    7d mk II fail
    t6i t6s fail
    t5i fail
    t4i fail
    5dr fail
    5ds fail
    I guess i`ll just have to save up for a new set of lenses and cameras.

    So you finally fixed the 70D focus problems? How about now replacing those 70D cameras that cant focus with wide exposure lens??
