Why Photography Beginners should go for DSLR cameras?

DSLR Camera

Many people who are interested in photography. Some are interested in taking it as their passion, whereas others are looking for a career in this field. So, all of them have the same question in their mind, which camera should I use as a beginner? My answer to this would be an entry-level DSLR camera. Now, you would be thinking, Why a DSLR camera, why not a bridge camera or a high-end DSLR camera?

Let us find out the answer to all these questions.

In the beginning stage of photography, you should learn to operate the camera in manual mode. I have seen many photographers using the semi-automatic modes like the Aperture priority mode or shutter priority mode and the Automatic modes in cameras. If you continue using these modes, then you will never learn photography.

Some photographers don’t want to take risk initially by using manual mode. You will fail when you start with manual mode. No need to worry in that case. Making mistakes in the initial stage is right for you. You need to learn from these mistakes to be a better photographer.

If you use semi-automatic mode, you can fail in tricky lighting conditions. You may end up in an Underexposed or overexposed image. It is because you have let the full control to your camera and the camera metering had failed due to the tricky lighting. But, if you were using Manual mode, then you could have captured the scene with the right exposure settings.

DSLR camera gives you the ability to learn photography through its manual mode. Most of the point and shoot camera lacks this feature. So, you will never learn when you use a point and shoot camera. So, if you buy an entry-level DSLR camera, then you can explore it to the maximum and learn all the basics of photography like exposure settings (Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO), white balance settings, ability to capture in RAW format, basics of post processing.

Once you master manual mode in camera, then you can photograph in any lighting conditions. You need a good practice to get a good grip on the manual mode.

If you go for a high-end camera, then you need to invest a lot. Later, if you lose interest in photography, then you would have to bear the loss. So, better start with an entry level DSLR camera and later if you are still interested in photography you can upgrade your camera gear.
