So yeah..

I have been wanting to get in to photography for like 6 years or so :S

But that is hard without a camera XD

 

So I want to buy an dslr...

However I don't know what is a good one and what isn't.

 

Also a problem that I have is that I can't spent to much on it so the really new ones won't be an option as those usually cost 500+

 

That is where comes in my question.

Is it possible to get a camera around 100-250 euros?

(this being new or second hand)

Or is it best to save up money for a couple years and buy a really good brand new one?

 

Thanks in advance for helping me :)

The absolute best you can buy is the Nikon D3200 with the VR lens that comes with it. It's the one i have and its super easy to understand. There's even a Guide mode which you can tell the camera what you are shooting and it even sets it up ready to go so you can start shooting hassle free

Thanks Darius :D

However that is still a bit to exspensive for me D:

 

Do you know anything that is a bit cheaper?

 

Or can you tell me what makes a camera good so I can find one myself..

 

Thanks anyways :)

yeah the problem is you're young and unemployed and got no major money to shit on cameras. I have youtube so that helps a lot. Just get a job later on and you can buy some DSLR camera and gear. You got a long life so dw about it

^All the feels D:

But then again, the camera's I want are slightly unreasonable, even with a job XD

That being said, you don't need an expensive ass camera to get good photos... A $300 point and shoot will serve you just fine as long as you have a tripod :O

I've got the older model of that one (12 MP and such) and it's awesome...

I knew a guy who accidentally dropped a very expensive camera with some very expensive attachments into a lake while doing a shoot for someone... He was pretty depressed.

Tbh when I first started, I used my iPhone camera. Then at my 17th birthday, my classmates got me a Nikon D3200, which I love now. You can get this cam on ebay, for a good price.
