The best camera for 2000 PLN? Contrary to appearances, there are a lot of them – there are good and cheap devices on the market now. I advise what camera is worth buying today.
Can you buy a good camera with a relatively small amount? Of course! With about 2 thousand in your pocket You will find many really interesting offers. Best placed below – these are recommended cameras, which price (with one exception) does not exceed 2 thousand. PLN Among the presented models, I have placed both SLRs and mirrorless cameras , and there is also room for a compact camera . In the case of some models, for about 2 thousand. you buy the same body, others you can have with the lens. Such a cross-section will allow everyone to find something for themselves.
Recently I wrote about the fact that Sony A6300 is still worth buying. On the market, meanwhile, we will also find its predecessor, the A6000 model, which in February turned 5. Despite his age, he is still a good mirrorless man. It offers APS-C matrix with 24 Mpix resolution, and its strong point is a good autofocus based on 179 fields. The camera does well with higher ISO sensitivity, giving a clean image. It has a hinged screen and optical viewfinder as well as a flash. The big advantage is also the serial mode at 11 frames per second. The camera is also great for filming. Spins 50 frames per second in XAVC format with 50 Mbps bitrate . So you can register really good quality movies. In addition, the model also has a WiFi module. For the body we pay around 1700 PLN , the version with the kit lens is just over 2 thousand. zł .
Panasonic Lumix GX800
As you read in our Panasonic Lumix GX800 review, it's one of the smallest mirrorless cameras on the market. This camera literally fits into your pocket, but falls out much better than compact cameras. It has a 4/3 micro sensor and takes pictures with a resolution of 16 Mpix. The camera is distinguished by a touch and 360 ° tilted screen . Any amateur can easily handle its service, and the selfie function will certainly be useful to him. The advantage of the camera is also the presence of an optical stabilization matrix, as well as known from other models of the 4k Photo mode producer, allowing to take serial shots at 30 frames per second. Since we are already at 4K – the camera film in this mode at 30 frames / s and is one of the cheapest models that give this option. I think it is a really crazy model because of its small size and low price, which contrast with really big possibilities. Perfect for holidays, for vloggers. Its price – just over PLN 1500 in a kit with a kit is really great!
Canon EOS 200D
For many people, the photographer's attribute is a SLR because it looks the most professional. For less than 2 thousand PLN will be able to find some interesting products of this type. One of the recommended commands is EOS 200D. He takes pictures with a 24.2 megapixel resolution and has a touch and tilt screen . In terms of parameters, it falls out worse than mirrorless cameras – it has a relatively slow, 9-point autofocus and serial mode with a speed of 5 frames per second. The advantage of the camera, however, is the good quality of the pictures – especially the color scheme, which in the Canon version is simply very good. In addition to the camera, we will buy lenses at very reasonable prices, and we will find the entire collection of used glasses on the market. There is also a strong battery and wireless connectivity. In movie mode, we can shoot in Full HD 50p. We will buy the camera with a kit lens for approximately PLN 1700 . So there is still PLN 300 for the plastic "fifty" with light 1.8 .
Fuji is famous for stylish cameras, although not the cheapest. Model X-A10 is an exception to this second rule. Equipped with an APS-C sensor, it takes pictures with a resolution of 16.3 megapixels, and in serial mode it reaches 6 frames per second. The screen is tilted 180 degrees, there is no lack of WiFi module, and the presence of filters simulating photographic films is also a big advantage. In Full HD movie mode, the recording speed is only 30 fps, and the maximum recording time of one file is 14 minutes. The camera is handy, nice and allows you to take interesting photos, although you can not expect miracles, because the possibilities are rather basic. The disadvantage may be lenses – these Fuji are not the cheapest, and there are not too many replacements. However, the price falls very good – less than 1600 zlotys for a body with a putty . It is worse than the GX800 for the possibilities, but it certainly makes nicer pictures.
Another in the comparison model with the micro 4/3 matrix, closed in a stylish body. Olympus E-PL8 looks really good, offers photos with a resolution of 16.1 Mpix and image stabilization. In serial mode, we will do it 8.5 pictures in a second. The screen is tilted and tactile, and the matrix is mechanically stabilized. Pictures taken with this camera can be really nice, and its service will certainly be pleasant. The autofocus is based on 81 focus points and should deal decently provided it is not too dark. From minuses, no digital viewfinder, and movies will be recorded in Full HD 30p. This is a successful model that will appeal to many amateurs. Tempting his price – around 1,300 PLN for a body. Due to the Micro 4/3 bayonet, it will certainly be easier to find cheap and interesting glass than in the case of Fuji.
Panasonic Lumix G7
Lumix G7 has been on the market for 4 years and it is still very interesting mirrorless. Equipped with a 16-megapixel micro 4/3 sensor, it is well suited for photos, but even better for movies. Due to the affordable price, the model is very popular among filmmakers. We can spin it in 4K 30p or Full HD 60p. Focus point is selected by touch on the screen, the screen itself can be tilted 180 degrees, and the sound can be recorded through an external microphone attached to the hot shoe. Due to the large number of knobs, the camera is well-supported, and the well profiled grip makes the model comfortable to hold in your hand. We will take serial shots at 30fps. This is certainly one of the best affordable film cameras we will find on the market. The version with the body is within 1700 PLN , while the option with the kit will pay less than PLN 2,200 .
Sony RX100 III
The first and only compact on our list. Devices of this type have recently been almost completely ousted from the market by smartphones. There are just a few models that are boldly holding, to them belongs among others RX100 series. There is already Sony RX100 VI on the market, but the RX100 III is still an interesting proposition. What speaks for this compact? Of course, small dimensions, as well as the lens. In the RX100 III we find universal glass with a focal length of 28-70 mm. Its advantage is that it is much brighter than putty – the variable aperture offers f / 1.8-2.8. Of course, the sensor is slightly smaller because we have a 1-inch sensor here. In this compact we can find an electronic viewfinder, and the screen, although devoid of touch, is deflected. We can film in Full HD 50p with bitrate of 50 Mbps, we also have slow-motion 720p mode. The matrix is optically stabilized, and the camera also has a flash. It is therefore an interesting and quite universal compact. Currently, its price exceeds our price ceiling by just over PLN 50 .
At the end, another SLR and another model, which is 5 years old. Nikon D3300 is a small camera by mirror standards, offering APS-C matrix with a resolution of 24 megapixels. Its advantage is that the matrix has been deprived of a low-pass filter , so we can count on really high quality and detail of the photos. A big plus is the fact that the Nikon system we find a lot of glasses at reasonable prices, and the secondary market is very rich. As for the possibilities, miracles are not to be expected. The 11-point AF will be slightly better than the Canon EOS 200D, but it will not be a speed demon. In serial mode, we will take 5 photos in a second . The camera does not find wireless connectivity, but there was also a microphone input. In turn, in movie mode, we can shoot in Full HD 50p. For novice photography enthusiasts, this model should be a good option. We will pay less than PLN 1500 for the body.
