Hi
I want to buy my first DSLR camera and I don't want something which is very basic. My budget is Rs 50000. Do you guys think I can get something good enough in this budget?

Try to go for a second hand canon 60d or better still if you can go for a canon 70d. What kind of photography are you interested in?

What is it that you want to get out of your DSLR ?

I have to say, as I get older, having toted a dlsr for a decade now, I see less and less use for it.....it more often than not, is left behind at home while my cellphone does the job.

Ditto ! I saw some cool easy-to-carry mirrorless cameras in Akihabara. If ever I decide to replace my 15 year old DSLR, I'll go mirrorless

In a good light, with a good hand, they can be very good indeed. However, since I bought my first "real" camera in decades, the phone has, assuming that I have the camera with me, been kept in the pocket.

In another thread, I have mentioned the bottomless pit of the interchangeable-lens camera and its dangers for the gadget-loving shopoholic, but here's another thing... The camera may be with you, but is the "right" lens on it, or have you not bothered to even bring the bagful of stuff out with you? At times, I wish I had bought a high-quality (rather than necessarily huge-number-times zoom) super-zoom. It would have been much more practical, and, taking Sony (which I bought), for example, would have given me all the mistakes-possible settings along with [possibly] the same sensor (or better!) as my entry-level a6000 mirrorless. If I remember my buying decisions correctly, it might even have cost more, but hey... no future lens buying. But no possibility of a heap of stuff, from cheap macro extension tubes, through fast primes to long lenses to catch a bird's eye, which I will never be able to afford anyway.

But, if I was entering the real-camera market now, with wealth... I'd need a very good specific reason to go for something with a mirror. Seems to me that that technology now belongs to the Olympus OM2 at the back of one of cupboards. Sweet piece of history!

(Opinions expressed with necessary humility in the presence of many superb photographers here. Reasons why I might be wrong may be useful in answering the original question)

Please define " very basic". I'm afraid most basic of cameras nowadays are actually too much camera for most.

Do note that the OP has not returned and unlikely to do so.
There was a website promotion reply to that query which has been deleted.

Anyways this could help someone else.
