The Canon EOS Rebel T6 (aka the EOS 1300D) hits the basics for a low price, but that's about it.
For a step up in photo quality or performance from a phone or compact, the Canon EOS Rebel T7i/800D remains a fan favorite.
Very good photo quality for its class plus performance fast enough to capture kids and pets make the Nikon D3400 A solid choice for a first dSLR.
After some hands-on time with NIkon's first full-frame mirrorless, we love it -- warts and all.
Lightweight and compact with everything the family photographer needs, the Nikon D5600 maintains its position as a great general-purpose dSLR for its price class.
