Summary

The SLR camera market is fairly established. There are a few major players, with a few options for all price points. What's important to remember, is that at the end of the day these cameras are nothing like point and shoot cameras that most people are used to. You need to buy additional lenses in order to get the most out of them.

Which is why it's important to buy SLR packages, since they always include lenses for you to use, saving you money in the process.

If you are looking for a budget SLR camera, look no further than a Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2 MP with 18-55mm lens. This camera is for those of you who want a point and click high quality camera without spending a ton of money. It lacks in mega pixels compared to most SLR cameras, but 12.2 is a lot better than what you'd get in most regular digital cameras. And the price is not that much higher compared to the regular cameras.

If you are willing to spend a little bit more, we reccommend the Nikon D5200 24.1 MP Digital SLR with 18-55mm lens - it costs a bit more than the Canon, but you get twice as many pixels to play with.

And if money is no object, we recommend the Canon EOS 5D Mark III 22.3 MP SLR Camera Bundle- it's the cadillac of SLRs, and is jam packed with features and accessories. This product we recommend more for the proffessional photographers among you...because it's a serious case of overkill for anyone else.

 

Value

SLRs are a good value because the different is literally night and day compared to regular point and click digital cameras. But it does come with a price .While the digital camera comes as is, with the SLRs you need to buy extra lenses to get the most out of a camera.

The Good
SLRs will make taking blurry pictures a thing of the past and since they take pictures much faster, you can literally take hundreds of photos in order to get the perfect shot.
The Bad
It's important to remember that with the SLRs you need to upgrade your lenses to get the most out of them. They are also a lot bulkier than regular cameras. While regular digital cameras you can just carry in your front pocket, with the SLR you are stuck using the straps because it just doesn't fit anywhere else.
