Want to buy a DSLR Camera ? Get an Expert’s advice….

In current market scenarios it is really difficult for a beginner to decide which camera to buy as there are many choices available and beginners are generally confused where to start.
 .
A recommendation to buy a particular camera to someone may not be same for other person as it all depends on individual requirement and there are multiple factors affecting the decisions. There are lot of technical specifications that may be difficult for a beginner to understand and hence it is really difficult to suggest which one to buy.

I was using my Canon point and shoot camera and I decided to go for a DSLR in 2011. I went ahead and bought Nikon D3100 with 18-55mm and 55-300mm and enjoyed this for next 3 years. I didn’t actually know what I was doing and fell into a choice that turned out to be good for me, but my advice for you would be to figure out who around you may be able and willing to help you to get started, and get something similar to what they have or something your mentor is familiar with.
.
As a beginner you have a lot of technical elements to learn about the exposure triangle (shutter speed, aperture, ISO) and numerous other shooting techniques etc.
 .
Very common question among beginner now a days isNikon or Canon?
 .
It is better to choose a camera based on its features and notits brand.

Then, before you buy, explore the different lenses and accessories that are available. If you want to learn how to take wildlife pictures, for example, make sure the camera you choose has a compatible telephoto or zoom lens. This is where Nikon and Canon comes as a first choice as compare to Sony or Pentax (or any other brand) as there are plenty of lenses, flashes and other accessories to choose from.
.
If you are thinking to buy DSLR than there could be another question – “crop” sensor (DX format) or a “full-frame” sensor (FX format) ?
.
.
When we take a digital photograph, light enters through the lens, than hits the sensor—it’s that sensor that records the image. Sensors come in all different sizes. The sensor in our smartphone’s camera is very small, while a DSLR sensor is much larger. Larger sensors are better for a number of different reasons. .
.
The crop sensor is smaller than the full-frame sensor, which means it gathers less light and less data as you click that shutter button.  There is a very large price difference between the two. Full-frame bodies cannot use lenses built for crop sensor bodies.
If you have a full-frame body you have to buy full-frame lenses, which are quite a bit more expensive (and higher quality) than lenses made for crop sensor bodies. On the other hand, crop sensor bodies can use the lenses built for full-frame.
.
As a beginner one should always prefer to go with crop sensor for multiple reasons and upgrade later.
 .
Other common mistakes a beginner do is to choose a camera based on Megapixels ?
.
.
This is not right way as Megapixels determine how much resolution your camera has. Higher resolution doesn’t necessarily mean better images. Cameras with more megapixels produce higher resolution images, so you can print bigger photos or crop without ruining the photo.
Megapixels are not as important as sensor size in determining image quality. One more thing to consider—more megapixels mean bigger image files but keep in mind that you’ll want bigger SD cards for high megapixel cameras, and also a pretty large hard drive to store them on too.

My recommendation is to consider following factors while making decisions –
1.       Budget
2.       Purpose (Portrait, Fashion, landscape, wildlife etc)
3.       Camera with better user friendly controls
4.       Camera features and available lens/accesories options
5.       Service centers and warranty
