Top DSLR cameras under Rs 35,000 – Rs 40,000 in India | 2019

best dslr under rs 40000 in India

Which is the best DSLR under 40000 in India? We’ve put together the best DSLR cameras in the range of Rs 35,000-Rs 40,000 in India for this month, including mirrorless cameras, that offer changeable lenses. As you would know, a lens makes as much impact on the quality of a photograph as the camera behind it. As such, some of these cameras are cheaper models bundled with an additional lens for a discounted price and are worth checking out since buying lenses separately would be much more expensive.

So here goes the list of the best DSLR cameras under Rs 35,000 – Rs 40,000 in India. Also, check the best DSLR cameras under Rs 25,000, the best DSLR cameras under Rs 30,000 and the best DSLR cameras under Rs 50,000.

Better cameras

 

Panasonic G7

Panasonic G85

Summary
Here’s another mirrorless that sits, well, somewhere in between mirrorless and DSLRs. It’s lighter than DSLRs but then heavier than other mirrorless. The battery is also in between. We like the fact that it offers WiFi, 4K video, 7FPS burst, and ample autofocus points. Reviews praise it for the image and video quality. G85 is more expensive because of the 5-axis image stabilization and the fact that it is weather sealed. Although the sensor on the G85 doesn’t come with an anti-aliasing filter like the G7.

Sony ILCE-6000L/B

Sony ILCE-6000L

Summary
Talking about the A6000, this particular model comes with 60fps recording, 11fps continuous shooting mode, and WiFi. There are also 179 AF points. The only thing that doesn’t hold well compared to a DSLR is the weaker battery. Also, the lenses might be slightly more expensive than those for Nikon or Canon. Just so you know the camera uses Sony E mount lenses.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II

Summary
Oh, this one is a looker, ain’t it? Well, the biggest USP for this camera is the in-body 5 axis image stabilization. You should see that in action while making videos. Speaking of videos, there’s only 1080p video recording here though and the reviews say they aren’t that great. However, the JPEG and RAW image quality are top-notch. The OLED viewfinder is also responsive enough.

best DSLR cameras under 50000 rs in India - Canon EOS 750D

Fujifilm X-T100

Fujifilm X-T100

Summary
Despite being a mirrorless, this one shares more DNA with a DSLR. There’s a solid battery life, but also the weight along with it. The burst mode and AF points are better than DSLRs but not quite in the mirrorless category. Oh, and it records 4K videos (though at just 15fps). We’re not sure where to find the compatible lenses though. Reviews praise the image quality but lament the video recording capabilities and inefficient AF for moving objects.

Canon M100

Canon M100

Summary
There’s just too much confusion around mirrorless cameras. No, they don’t shoot inferior photos compared to DSLR since they use the same sensors. Yes, they have interchangeable lenses. What they don’t have is a live viewfinder, which to be honest is a fair trade-off for the compactness. Their autofocus is also usually better. This particular model comes with 60fps recording, 6fps continuous shooting mode, and WiFi & NFC. The only thing that doesn’t hold well compared to a DSLR is the weaker battery.

Nikon D3400

best dslr cameras under rs 35,000 - d3400
18-55mm + 70-300mm lens

Summary
An old horse from Nikon, but a very reliable one. We particularly like the D3400 for its features such as 5fps burst shooting, respectable battery, 60fps video recording, and WiFi connectivity. The large ISO range can also be useful for night shots. The lens kit is great too.

Canon EOS 1500D

Canon EOS 1500D
Lens combo: 18-55mm + 55-250 mm

Lens combo: 18-55mm

Summary
One of the more recent offerings from Canon, but entry-level nonetheless. The 1500D gets you a larger sensor (in megapixel count) over the 1300D. Then, there’s also NFC and WiFI which is great. What disappoints are the AF points, 3fps burst shooting mode, and limited ISO range. The lends combo, although, is pretty good.

Canon EOS 1300D

best dslr cameras under rs 30,000 - eos 1300d

Lens combo: 18-55mm + 55-200mm

Summary
Pretty much all the things said for the 3000D can be said here except for a much better display on this one and the inclusion of NFC. So, yes, better than the 3000D. Also, the dual lenses should keep you covered end to end for your daily photography needs.
