CameraCreativ recommends the Canon EOS 250D / SL3.

Our rating of the Canon EOS 1300D

The Canon 1300D (in the US: Canon Rebel T6) is a typical entry level DSLR. Its APS-C sized sensor provides 18 megapixel resolution, easily enough for prints sized A3 or larger. The camera features WiFi and NFC and can be controlled remotely from your smartphone or PC/Mac. On the plus side are low price, easy handling and Canon's vast lineup of compatible lenses. Drawbacks are the inferior autofocus with only nine focus points (one cross sensor) and the rather smallish (0.5x) penta mirror viewfinder. Recommended as a spare for vacation and the like and for people who want to upgrade from point & shoot cameras or smartphone photography.

Our rating of the Canon EOS 250D / SL3

The EOS 250D (US: Rebel SL3) is the smallest DSLR in Canon's lineup and follows the EOS 200D (US: Rebel SL2) of 2016.
