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.

Nikon D3500

Nikon D3500

Summary
The most recent offering from Nikon. We particularly like the D3500 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. However, the specs seem almost identical to the D3400. We’re not sure what exactly changed.

Canon EOS 1500D

Canon EOS 1500D

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 1500D. Then, there’s also NFC and WiFI which is great. What disappoints are the AF points, 3fps burst shooting mode, and limited ISO range.

Canon EOS 3000D

Canon EOS 3000D

Summary
Entry level DSLR from Canon since Nikon decided they’re not interested in making any. Given it’s price point, don’t expect much. Nonetheless, there’s WiFi so you don’t have to carry a laptop with you all the time. What we don’t like is the fact that the burst mode allows only 3fps shooting. Not a great dampener, but disappointing. Also, you will have to compromise on the AF points and the display. Nothing that shouldn’t stop you from taking great photographs, but not making life too easy either. Also, don’t let the name fool you. Both 1300D and 1500D are better cameras.

Canon EOS 1300D

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

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.
