Whether you want a great doorway into photography that has a low financial entry point, or back-up camera you're not scared to put at risk, this could be the camera for you!
As much as I love having a flagship camera body, I'm always a bit precious with them. The heartache I felt when I nearly killed one some years back when a large wave snuck up and wiped me out while I was taking seascapes is still fresh in my mind. I'm also extra careful when I'm out and about and have decided to take my camera, to the point where I am sometimes put off taking it with me because I don't want the worry.
For that reason, I've become interested in grabbing cheaper cameras that can still deliver good results and that wouldn't break my heart (and/or bank balance) if something were to happen to it. These cameras also double up as excellent first steps for people who have an interest in photography, but can't bring themselves to part with a huge chunk of cash to test the water.
In this video, Mattias Burling puts forward his entry to the best "very cheap" camera you can buy in 2020: Canon EOS 100D. I can buy the body only right now off U.K eBay for $200 used. For that tiny investment you get an 18 megapixel crop sensor with an alarmingly good spec.
Do you think there's a better option for a (very) cheap but capable camera? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
