Best DSLR camera under 50000 in India (2020) (including mirrorless)

best dslr under rs 50000 in India

Which is the best DSLR under 50000?

As you start getting serious about photography, entry-level DSLRs don’t cut it. As such, we’ve compiled a list of the best DSLR cameras under Rs 50,000-55,000 for this month available in India. We’ve exclusively covered DSLRs and mirrorless cameras in the list with the best offerings from Canon, Sony, and Nikon listed below.

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. Oh, and yes, they come with in-built flash.

Some of these come with attractive pricing given the lens bundles included in the package but cost slightly north of Rs 50,000. So here are the top DSLR cameras under 50k-55k.

Also, check the best DSLR cameras under Rs 30,000. and best DSLR cameras under Rs 35,000-40,000.

 

These are the Best DSLR cameras under Rs 50,000 in India (2020):

Mirrorless cameras

 

Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Camera

 

Canon M50

Summary
We like mirrorless DSLRs for their lightweight and this one is no different. Also, the fact that it comes with the latest image processor, WiFi/NFC, 7.4fps burst mode, and has 143 AF points. Damn! Oh, and 4k video recording. However, be prepared for a substantial crop in 4K videos. The only thing bad about this baby is its battery life. Also, the M50 is eerily similar to its 18 months older sibling – M5. While there are a few differences, all-in-all, the M50 is a much better camera. We also strongly recommend it over the M6. Reviewers praise the image quality.

Sony A-6000Y Mirrorless Camera

 

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.

Sony Alpha A68 Mirrorless Camera

 

best DSLR cameras under 50000 rs in India - Sony Alpha A68

Summary
Sony doesn’t get all the love it deserves in India, but the Alpha A68 is great because it has 79 AF points, 8FPS continuous burst, and 60fps shooting (no 4K though). You could have to put in some effort looking for lenses though.

Canon M100 Mirrorless Dslr Camera

 

Summary
We like mirrorless DSLRs for their lightweight and this one is no different. Also, the fact that it comes with the latest image processor, WiFi/NFC, 6.1fps burst mode. Damn! Oh, and 4k video recording. However, be prepared for a substantial crop in 4K videos. The only thing bad about this baby is its sooting speed. Also, While there are a few differences, all-in-all, the M100 is a much better camera. We also strongly recommend it over the M60. Reviewers praise the image quality.

Panasonic G85 Mirrorless Camera

 

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. We find it better than the G7 because of the 5-axis image stabilization and the fact that it is weather sealed. Although the sensor doesn’t come with an anti-aliasing filter like the G7, that’s a small trade-off.

Canon EOS 200D II DSLR Camera

 

Canon EOS 200D II

Summary
A couple of improvements over the original 200D, including a much better battery life, a new image processor, and 4K recording capabilities. It also retains the large ISO rang and the excellent display along with touchscreen functionality. The AF points on the camera continue to disappoint though.

Canon EOS 800D

Summary
6FPS burst mode. Great. 60fps video recording. Not bad. Touchscreen and WiFi. Great. 45 AF points. Alright, that’s awesome. The EOS 800D is a decent camera with a more sophisticated image processor compared to entry-level DSLRs.

Canon EOS 200D DSLR Camera

 

Canon EOS 200D

Summary
The Canon nomenclature is very confusing. Nonetheless, 200D is a great camera. Why? Because it has a large ISO range, excellent display along with touchscreen functionality. The image processing is also a step above the entry-level Canon cameras. The lens kit makes it a great proposition. The AF points on the camera disappoint though. Also, for the same price, we’d prefer the EOS 200D II.
