Hi,

This would be my first DSLR.

Freinds advices and some R&D have brought me to Nikon D5300.

How is it? or any other choice in the same budget?

I would prefer WI-FI. And I would have loved the touchscreen feature; but to my knowledge D5300 does not have touchscreen.

Further, seems Nikon D5500 has touchscreen....

Now it is - D5300 or D5500 or D5600?

Or if you guys suggest any other option.

D5500 and D5600 costs about the same. For better connectivity, go for D5600.

Thanks.

1. Which lens combination do you suggest as a beginner?

2. Any other option or is it the best in the given budget?

Start with the lens that bundled with, i.e., kit lens 18-55mm. As you start shooting, you will figure out what kinda photography you want to pursue. Then you can pick a new lens based on your interest/need.

750D is another DSLR which comes around the same price bracket. One of the significant advantage is it's user interface.

750D is heavier.... Battery life is low.... And no Bluetooth....

Seems Nikon D5600 is fine.

And lastly, it is worth going for D5600 than D5500?

What's the price difference you see between the two? I think it's about ~2k diff. Yeah, it's worth that 2k premium.

Thanks mate....

Just noticed....

Low Light ISO of D5500 is 1438 against 1306 in D5600. Will this make any big difference?

Don't go by those numbers. Even if you do, the difference is not much and I don't think one can tell the difference if they see the images side by side.

It's a great beginner camera. We already had a Nikon camera in the family. So it meant better sense to buy the same brand Light weight and good ergonomics.
