Affordable Compact, Mirrorless And DSLRs
Cheap cameras are easy to come by, but you’ll want to make sure you’re buying a quality bit of kit. Try out one of these for size.
If you’re looking for a camera deal, then it’s a fantastic time to be a buyer. Not only do new DSLRs offer better quality images and more advanced features than ever before, but there’s also so much range available in terms of pricing. Even those at the end of the lower market offer a decent bang for your buck. Couple this with the pre-Christmas sales that are coming, and you’ve got the chance of a serious bargain. Why not consider the following models which are well-priced as well as being a reliable camera purchase?
Nikon D3400 DSLR
The Nikon D3400 takes the best features of the previous D3300 model including the 24.2MP APS-C sensor, EXPEED 4 processing and of course full HD video recording. The latter is capable of shooting at 60p with a resolution of 921k dots on a 3-inch LCD screen. The D3400 also has an impressive battery life, which you won’t necessarily realise is extremely useful until you’re without it, and a compact, lightweight body. The model is perfect for novices and the price of approximately £250 makes it a steal for beginners who are looking to get started
with a quality bit of kit.
Panasonic Lumix GX850/ GX800 Mirrorless
This version of Lumix uses the Micro Four Thirds sensor, which is one of the most affordable on the market at the moment. Video shoots at a standard 4k, but the beauty of this model is that you can take out 8MP stills from the movie footage. This mirrorless camera is both light and compact, making it a favourite to slip in your pocket for holidays and days out. As a slight downside, the battery life is more limited than other cameras at this price, but this is undoubtedly due to the small body. Features such as a tilted touchscreen, perfect for selfies, and in-built WiFi make this well worth considering, priced at roughly £300.
Sony RX100 Compact
This device is slightly more expensive, priced at £330 and has been around for about six years, acting as a frontrunner in its ability to combine a superior lens and sensor, housed inside a compact case. And there’s a reason that they’re still making the RX100 today, despite several other variations from Sony having joined it on the market: value for money. This compact also benefits from Steady-shot image stabilisation so you don’t need to worry about any wobbles and 10 fps burst shooting!
How To Finance Your New Camera Purchase
Even cameras at the lower end of the market can cost a few hundred, and not all of us have that money to hand. For those looking for a way to finance a new purchase, you could of course turn to traditional methods of funding such as using a credit card. Or alternatively, if you’d rather not rely on getting into debt, then you could use a sell my camera
site – simply supply the details of your camera equipment, receive a quote, send in your items and receive the promised cash straightaway. You can then use that money for any purpose, but putting it towards a new camera makes a lot of sense.
