Nikon has added a SnapBridge feature to this camera which allows users to transfer images to their smart devices via a constant Bluetooth Low Energy connection.

4 Nikon D5200 Review

Nikon D5200

Sensor: APS-C CMOS | Megapixels: 24.1MP | Lens mount: Nikon F mount | Screen type: 3-inch, 921,000 dots | Maximum continuous shooting speed: 5fps | Max video resolution: 1080p | User level: Beginner

The Nikon D5200 stands third in our list. It is an alternate to the Nikon D5300 at a much better price.

The quality of images it clicks with its 24.1-megapixel sensor is great for the price it comes at, and the EXPEED 3 image processing engine does a good job of enhancing images.

Its 2016-pixel RGB sensor helps scope out accurate scene brightness and colour information. Additionally, the camera has a wide ISO range of 100-6400 which can be further extended up to Hi-2 ISO 25600, thus, it allows for quality images in almost any lighting conditions.

Those who love capturing fast-moving objects will appreciate the camera as it features a continuous moving speed of 5fps.

Overall, the Nikon D5200 is a good camera for beginners with its articulating screen combined with a simple interface.

5 Pentax K-500 Review

Pentax K-500

Sensor: APS-C CMOS | Megapixels: 16.3MP | Lens mount: Pentax KAF2 | Screen type: 3-inch, 921,000 dots | Maximum continuous shooting speed: 6fps | Max video resolution: 1080p | User level: Beginner/enthusiast

The Pentax K-500 camera features a 16-megapixel high performing sensor which delivers promising image quality when paired with the PRIME M image processing engine.

The K-500 shows that an entry-level DSLR doesn't have to compromise on features or control. Excellent image quality and build further enhances the camera's appeal, as does the viewfinder with 100%-coverage.

While the camera is good for the price, there's a reason why we ranked it at number five. The lack of any focus point display in the viewfinder is a small yet a very noticeable omission. That, along with the K-500's propensity to underexpose, makes it easy to lose faith in the camera's autofocus and exposure metering abilities.
