Best First Camera for Photography 2017

“What should I get for my first camera?” is such a common question. It also has so many different answers like, “This brand new camera,” “Whatever suits you,” and “Just pick one and don’t look back, they’re all the same.” Which may be true, but does not really help someone new to photography.

My goal here is to not only specifically answer this question, but to save people as much money as possible while still offering the modern features they want.

UPDATE (August 2017): I still stand by this recommendation even over a year later. Canon hasn’t shown much growth and the mirrorless companies are still too expensive with not as many lens options in my opinion, leaving Nikon as a clear winner. Then this D5200 can be had for very cheap with semi modern performance which means little to no risk. If I had to recommend a more professional alternative I would go with the D7100 which can be had for around 0 used.

    The truth is i want a manual for dummies … I am in research for a good cheap camera for years and in summer 2018 i will finally have the time to focus on my channel but I am one of those who some of the world calls perfectionist … I want the perfect camera for me , an explanation for the camera , a good and free program for editing because yeah I am not one of these types of people who will start on youtube with a phone camera … I want every single vid to be perfect !!! but all this research made me depressed , the only thing i realized is I am poor
