Nikon DSLRs: Star Cameras for Beginners, Enthusiasts, and Pros

Nikon Digital Single Lens Reflex cameras are designed to suit beginners, hobbyists, and professionals. Shoot automatically, or customise your settings; the world is yours to capture with Nikon Digital SLR cameras. Whether you’re searching for a new Nikon camera in the box or used Nikon Digital SLR cameras on eBay, you will find your perfect piece of kit.

What are the benefits of buying a Nikon camera kit?

If you are just starting off with a DSLR, a camera that includes a kit lens is ideal. The D3500 is an entry-level Nikon DSLR camera that is frequently sold with the 18-55 mm focal length, F.3.5/5.6 kit lens. The following are some of the things to consider before purchase:

  • The lens aperture is usually not fixed. This means that if you are zooming in to your subject at the 55 mm focal length, the f-stop will switch to the narrower 5.6 aperture.
  • Kit lenses contain more plastic than metal.
  • The lens is inexpensive, resulting in an attractively priced Nikon DSLR camera with lens.
  • A kit provides opportunities for learning to use an SLR camera with removable lenses. Learn tricks to compensate for narrow apertures, slower shutter speeds, or less dynamic range.
  • The D3500 is light and small, giving you the convenience and portability of a point-and-shoot, but the features of a DSLR.
A camera for enthusiasts

When you are ready to graduate from Nikon DSLR cameras for beginners, consider the Nikon D850, a full-frame DSLR camera, with a maximum ISO of 102400. Leave behind your automatic shooting, and express yourself by taking full control of your camera settings. At 45 MP, the D850's features match many features of the Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera, but it is quite a bit heavier, at 915 grams.

The difference between a crop sensor and a full-frame sensor

The difference between the two sensors of Nikon Digital SLR cameras is that a crop sensor crops an amount that is defined by a multiplier used for the sensor. A full-frame sensor takes the full-frame equivalent of a 35 mm film camera. With a full-frame sensor, what you see is what you get. With a crop sensor, what you get is an increase in focal length and less of the frame.

How important is MegaPixel (MP) count?

The MegaPixel count for your Nikon DSLR is important if you typically crop large chunks of your images. This can result in poor quality if your pixel count is too low. However, other factors, such as sensor size, and how the camera handles light, contribute more to the quality of your images if you are printing uncropped images in standard sizes.
