Choosing Your First DSLR Camera
 
If you are considering which DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera to buy, you may be overwhelmed by the choices available. You should go to the camera shop and handle the cameras that you are considering. Every camera has it's pros and cons. It is a matter of working well with the camera. Do not be seduced by cameras features like high speed continuous shooting. You would rarely use such features if at all.  So choose the camera that suit your main requirements. The most important consideration is your budget. You do not need an expensive camera to take great photographs, but when you progress in your art and you need to expand your toolkit of equipment and accessories, a deep pocket will be handy. So factor in ease of future upgrades and accessories purchase in your budget.
 
Beginner DSLR Camera
 
If you are starting off as a hobbyist photographer, you can consider 'beginner' DSLR camera like the Nikon D3100, Nikon D5000 and Canon 550D. The Nikon entry-level DSLR cameras have limited compatible lens accessories, so it is recommended for those probably only need to use the standard 18-200mm zoom lens. If you have a bigger budget, you can consider other options like Nikon D5100, Nikon D7000, Canon 60D and other DSLR cameras with similar specifications. Do note that the entry level Nikon DSLR bodies are not compatible with the mid-range and high end models. So factor in your future requirement when buying your first DSLR camera. For example, you do not want to start with a beginner model and then upgrade to a Nikon D7000 and find that you have to purchase Nikon D7000 accessories instead of all the lenses you already possess.
 
When choosing your first DSLR camera, take your time to handle the various camera models in the camera shop. Choose the camera that you feel most comfortable with. Some people can handle a heavy camera while others will find it cumbersome. Ask the most experienced photographers for advice before deciding on your choice.
