This is one of the most popular DSLR video cameras out there for quite a few reasons. For one, it isn’t too expensive and won’t break your budget. As compared to some DSLR cameras out there, this is considered in the lower to middle price-point. Next, it’s rated very highly among users when it comes to the overall quality and build of the camera. In terms of highlights of this DSLR, the photos are 24.2 megapixels and the video is of course 1080p Full HD. You can choose either 60/50/30/25 or 24p. The video quality is super clear in detail since the image sensor they use does not have an optical low-pass filter.
If you plan on using this as a photo camera as well, you can also use your smart phone with the camera with its WU-1a wireless adapter (if you’ll be using it for photos as well, they automatically send to your smart device). In terms of build, its pretty compact and lightweight so you’ll be able to travel with it pretty easily (we recommend getting a case for it if you intend on doing so). It also comes with a lens kit so you won’t have to worry about that side of the equation either. If you wanted an immediate answer on the best DLSR video camera and something that didn’t break your wallet, definitely take a look at the Nikon D3300 (it also made an appearance in our best DSLR camera under $500).
CNET’s Nikon D3300 review rated it pretty highly and it was in Tech Radar’s best DSLR camera post. This one is in most DSLR camera reviews for a reason.
