Best DSLRs Under $500 in 2019

In this article I am going to tell you the name of best DSLR camera available under $500. But believe me, it’s really a bit hard for us to select the best DSLR for you, because under dollar $500 category we have very limited names.

1. Best DSLRs under $500 – Sorting up Names

We have sorted out some of the best DSLRs available in the market right now for example we have selected the ultra popluar Canon T6 DSLR , at the same time we have also selected the recently announced Nikon D3500 DSLR also falls under $500 range and features very promising specifications. We have selected these two DSLRs under $500 category and among these three we will going to pick the best one for you.

2. How we selected the best DSLR for you ?

See every photographer have their specific set of demands, but we are selecting a DSLR that composed of a lot of features that other dslrs are failed to provide in that particular range. Our main concern or primary preferences image quality and after image quality we are putting our preference to auto focusing system, finally video recording capability and at last the wireless transfer skills of the camera.

3. Now it’s time to talk about the set of DSLR under $500 category

Starting with the ultra Popular Canon T6 camera also known as Canon 1300D. Canon T6 or 1300D is one of the most sold entry level DSLR of the world, without a second thought there are lot of people who buy this DSLR and also satisfied with its performance. But, the only reason they are satisfied with Canon T6 performance since they haven’t tried out the other options available out there, but we have tried and tested all the options before writing up this article.

Let’s talk about the options, the best camera we have in the list among these two DSLRs

4. Canon T6 / 1300D mini review

We have tried and tested the Canon T6 / 1300 D camera for several days. The image quality failed to impress us for the price we are paying off, the 18 megapixel 7 year old sensor is brought from original 7D camera which looks completely outdated right now. BTW way to have a big respect for Canon DSLR. But for now we do have some other great options falling under the same price range. So, in my opinion after trying and testing out the Canon T6 / 1300 D camera in the year of 2018. I am not recommending you to buy that camera.

Things I like about Canon T6 / 1300 D camera
Canon 1300 D / T6 is a super affordable DSLR. And features Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity.  These two things I really like about this camera first its price and the second is the connectivity features the camera have.

Things I don’t like about Canon t6 / 1300 D camera.
The image quality of the camera is really not up to the mark, there are lot of tough competition out there and other entry level cameras outperforming Canon 1300 / T6 while coming at same price range.

Canon T6 camera at B&H Store and Amazon.com

Why we have selected Nikon D3500 camera in our list?  The reason behind the selection of Nikon D3500 camera is it super affordable cost and features very impressive set of Core specification. The Nikon D3500 camera arrives in the same cost of Canon T6 / 1300 D which is approx more than 2+ year old.

5. Why Nikon D3500 camera impressed us,

While using Nikon D3500 camera for a while, we are really impressed with the Core specification of the camera, the camera features 24 megapixel sensor the image quality of the sensor is really very good for entry level DSLR camera. And believe me it’s far better than the Canon 1300D / T6 DSLR camera. The dynamic range of the camera, the low light performance as well as the colour output is better than the Canon T6 / 1300D camera.

Auto focusing system of the Nikon D3500 camera is also slightly better than the Canon 1300D / T6 camera. We are getting 11 point Phase auto focusing module where as the Canon T6 remains Limited to 9 point Auto focusing system

Let’s talk about the continuous shooting speed of the camera, We are getting 5 frames per second continuous shooting speed with Nikon D3500 camera. As we know Canon T6 + 1300 D camera is limited to three frames per second only.

You can record full HD videos at 60 frames per second which is not possible with Canon entry level DSLR camera is limited to 30 frames per second only. The ISO rating of the camera is also one stop more compared to the can an entry level DSLR camera. We are getting ISO range of 25600 where as the Canon 1300D / T6 limited to 12800.

The biggest advantage that really make us by the Nikon D3500 camera instead of Canon 1300 D is the absence of optical low pass filter…the biggest advantage of not having optical low pass filter built-in is that you are getting 100% sharp images all the time if your shooting skills are correct.

6. Big battery life

Nikon D3500 camera features amazing battery life, with a single charge you can shoot up to 1500 shots without any issue. where is the Canon 1300 / 36 camera shoes less than 500 shots in a single charge.

Now only big issue associated with Nikon D3500 camera is the Bluetooth connectivity. Due to the Bluetooth connectivity the file transfer remains limited to 2MB, that’s you cannot get the larger version of your images in your smart devices. That’s the only big issue associated with the Nikon D3500 camera

Things I like about the Nikon D3500 camera.
The first thing you like about the Nikon D3500 camera is its image quality due to the new 24 megapixel sensor with better dynamic range battery low light performance and enhanced colour output than any other entry level DSLR present in the market and at the same time the camera also doesn’t have the optical low pass filter all these things makes this camera a perfect companion for entry level shooter…apartments image quality that thing I really like about this camera is its big battery life. Once you charge the battery you literally forget to recharge the battery, since it reaches enormous life size of 500 shots.

Things I don’t like about the Nikon D3 500 camera
The only thing that I don’t like about the Nikon D3500 camera is its wireless connectivity. The camera features Bluetooth connectivity and the Bluetooth connectivity limits your file transfer size upto 2MB only, that is you are not able to get larger version of your files in your smart devices

Best Lenses for Nikon D3500

Nikon D3500 camera best lenses, in this post I am going to recommend you some of the best lenses of the Nikon D3500 camera.  if you have any questions you can post in the comment section below

At the same time the image quality of the Nikon D3500 camera is absolutely best of its class.

Top 5 Best Lenses for Nikon D3500

Type Lens
1. Best All in-one Zoom Lens Nikon 18-200mm  
2. Best Portrait Lens Nikon 50mm F1.8G  
3. Best Ultra-Wide Zoom Tokina 11-16mm F2.8  
4. Best Macro Lens Nikon 40mm F2.8 Macro  
5. Best Zoom Lens 70-300mm DX AF-P VR  

we are going to suggest you the name of some of the best top Nikon lenses available for the Nikon D3500 camera.

1. Best Standard Lens for Nikon D3500

D3500 camera 18-55mm kit lens is one of the best lens available for standard use. The lens gives very good output and highly usable for standard use. however, the lens do not perform very well under low light environment, so we have a recommendation for you from a third party maker and the lens features a constant F2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range, let’s have a look of our first recommendation.

2. Best All-rounder Zoom Lens

The Nikon 18-200mm lens is one of the best travel lens available for Nikon D3500,  the lens features very effective built-in VR system of second generation. Of second generation. The lens covers all your photographic needs, or you can say one of the best lenses available for travel shooters or those who want all-in-one solution.

But, you have to keep in mind that it’s a variable aperture lens. So, using this lens in poor lighting condition is bit challenging and you have to keep your eye in shutter settings to get the perfect shot and avoid blur caused by shaking up of hands or moving subjects.

Now let’s talk about what I like and don’t like about the lens

Now after using for a while what I have personally found that the Zoom tends to creep a bit. And the Zoom ring is bit stiff too, but that’s not a big issue for me.

Now due to excessive use of optics inside the lens you can feel the images are bit soft when captured at tele end with wide open aperture, so for that you have to lightly sharpen the image during post-processing.

Nikon 18-200mm lens AF is fast despite of having such a excessive zoom range. The lens AF and VR works very effectively.The chromatic aberration and distortion is also very well controlled.

3. Best Portrait Lens for Nikon D3500

Prime lenses are real lenses, when you talk about image quality and depth control, most of the time I use prime lenses for my work. Now, in this section we will talk about the best portrait lens for the Nikon D3500 DSLR Camera. The best lens that will give you excellent cinematic feel either you are creating a video or shooting a still shot.

Nikon 50mm F1.8G is the best lens ever made for an entry level camera like the Nikon D3500. The lens is affordable at the same time we are getting Fixed F1.8 aperture for shallow DOF. The price price of the lens is $ 200, so you cannot expect high grade body material or solid design quality from this lens but output of the lens does matches  with the premium class of lenses. Best lens for your entry level camera or to start your portrait photography career.

The Good

Sharpness of this lens is really just awesome, even at wide open aperture F1.8 the lens captures tack sharp images all the time. And the sweet spot of this lens is  f/5.6-f/8.  Chromatic aberrations and distortion are very well controlled, although you also get a lot of help from camera built-in lens correction tool. The bokeh of this lens is just awesome and super creamy, super perfect of a $200 price range lens. The lens is extremely lightweight and very easy to carry for longer if  hours of work. The focusing speed of this lens is quite fast and it focuses really very quickly on it subject. Like most of the Nikon lenses the 50mm F1.8G lens also offers manual focus override, so you can fine tune your AF adjustment if you want to.

The Bad (its okay)

Also one thing you should keep in mind is the crop factor issue. The 50mm lens will act as 75mmlens is APS-C crop sensor,  So, you will be getting a 75mm equivalent focal length on your Nikon D3500 DSLR camera.


Buy Ultra wide from Tokina – B&H | Amazon

4. Best Ultra Wide-Angle Lens for Nikon D3500

Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 is one of the best ultra wide angle lenses available for Nikon D3500 DSLR. The lens also features constant F2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range. But why we are recommending a Non Nikon Lens to you, Since our intention is to give you best lenses in less cost.

The Good

The Tokina ultra wide lens for Nikon DSLRs cost you $400 only, but the build-quality and image quality both look of premium class. The Tokina 11-22mm F2.8 lens can be used for various purpose such as  landscapes, cityscapes, and architecture

At F8 aperture the Lens gives you super sharp images, And the F2.8 aperture really helps you a lot when you are shooting in low-light condition without any tripod.This versatile lens and of the best ultra wide zoom lens for Nikon D3500.

There is very less barrel distortion present in the lens, which is of course a integral part of any ultra-wide zoom lens. But, other than this we haven’t found any issues with the lens in-terms of performance.,

The Bad

Ok now let’s talk about the autofocusing performance of the lens, the lens do have AF motor inside but is work with high-end Nikon DX series camera starting from Nikon D7xxx series or Nikon D500. The AF will not work with the Nikon D3500 camera and you have to do Manual Focus.

5. Best macro lens for Nikon D3500 camera

In this section I am going to talk about the best micro lens for your Nikon D3500 DSLR camera. Nikon 40MM 2.8 DX macro lens – The best macro lens for Nikon DSLR which is also a very perfect balance of price and performance. It is one of the best lens I have ever used with Nikon DX format camera.

Magnification ratio of this lens is just like a perfect macrolens, the lens gives you 1 is to 1 ratio that’s means you are getting 1X magnification ratio with your Nikon D3500 DSLR, you will be getting life size large images through macro lens.

Now we have to keep in mind that Nikon exclusively  designed and developed the 40 MM lens for Nikon DX format DSLRs. The image quality of this life is just awesome, you will be getting super sharp images even when used at wide open a aperture. Focusing performance of this lens is also very fast accurate as well as near about silent.

The Bad (No VR)

The 40mm lens donot have VR, that means you have to use tripod while shooting Lifesize macro images with your camera under poor lighting condition. Other than absence VR the lens doesn’t have any downside.

6. Best Zoom Lens for Nikon D3500

Nikon is now putting more attention to DX formats DSLRs by introducing dedicated AF-P DX Lenses. These lenses are optimized for DX format DSLRs and features very light compact design with improved VR support and optics.

The Good

Nikon announced a dedicated 70-300mm DX lens for Nikon APS-C sensor based DSLR. And it is also one of the highest rated lens by its users. The optics of this lens is great and lens renders sharp images even at wide open aperture. The chromatic aberration and distortion is very well controlled in this lens.

The VR also work very effectively, practically it is possible to shoot with a shutter speed of about 4 stops slower than you would need without VR. All the new AF-P series of lenses carries stepping rive motor for silent Autofocusing. The lens is very lightweight and weighs only 415g.

The Bad

The lens isn’t fully compatible with Nikon Fullframe DSLR camera and it features plastic mount which is of-course not so durable as Metal mounts. But, hey I am using that lens for review purpose for more than 3 months and used a lot of time. I haven’t find any issues with the plastic mount.

ISO Sensitivity

Now let’s check out the major differences between the two camera one of the major differences that you can see is the difference between the ISO range of both the camera. The maximum ISO range of Nikon D3500 camera is upto 25600 where as the Canon T7 / 1500 D is limited to 12800 standard ISO only.

Phase AF system

Number of auto focusing points in Nikon D3500 as usual a bir more than the Canon T7 or 1500D. With the Nikon D3500 camera you are getting 11 point autofocusing system and Canon 1500D / T7 limited to 9 Point AF system only.

Continuous shooting Speed

Both camera have 24 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, but when you talk about the continuous shooting speed than Nikon D3500 camera can shoot up to 5 frames per second whereas the Canon 1500 / T7 remains Limited to 3 frames per second. That’s clearly indicates the image process sitting inside the Nikon D3500 camera is more powerful and faster compared to the Canon 1500D / T7 image processor.

Bigger Battery Life

One of the most important thing is the battery life of a camera, and the new Nikon D3500 camera offers you to Grab 1500 shots in a single charge whereas the Canon 1500 / T7 remains limited to 500  per charge only.The Nikon D3500 camera is giving you 3x more battery life compared to the Canon.

Design of the Camera

The design of the camera is vastly improved compared to its predecessor, yes we are talking about the Nikon D3500 camera which is more compact and the hand grip become comfortable compared to its predecessor and of course it’s better than Canon 1500 D design when you pick up with the cameras in your hand. Well I am sharing my opinion with you.

Advantages of the Canon 1500D / T7 camera.

Nikon D3500 camera do perform a bit better in low light conditions but there is not any huge difference between the two, one of the reason that may stand behind the similarities is the use of same sensor inside the Nikon D3500 as of its predecessor.

But from Canon 1300D to 1500D the image quality is vastly improved. Canon used a new sensor and the low-light performance as well dynamic range of the camera is improved from its predecessor and now you can say that level of image quality coming out from 1500D is look similar to Nikon D3500.

I don’t know why Nikon not updated the image processor of the image sensor of the recently announced Nikon D3500 DSLR camera despite of taking two years of time.

Built-in WiFi NFC Connectivity

Built in wireless and NFC connectivity, Nikon D3500 camera wireless connected to Bluetooth. This BIG reason behind that 2MP file limit transfer to your smartphone or any other smart device, with Canon 1500D  you can transfer full size images to your smartphone with the help of the wireless connectivity (WiFi NFC) options available inside the camera.

Verdict

After looking all the major specifications of both the camera it’s very clear that Nikon D3500 camera do offer advanced Core specification compare to the Canon 1500D / T7 camera. We recommending you to get the Nikon D3500 camera if you want to start your photography career with a decent entry level DSLR camera under affordable price tag.
