A good camera for 3000 PLN? Contrary to appearances, with this amount we find many interesting models. Are you looking for a cheap camera for taking photos or filming? Here's the equipment to look out for.
We have recently recommended the best cameras up to PLN 2,000. It was not easy, but in the end we managed to find some really interesting models. However, if you manage to add another thousand zlotys to that budget, it starts to be really interesting, and the list of noteworthy SLRs or mirrorless cameras is much longer. Here are the best cameras that you can buy for less than 3 thousand. zł.
Despite the passage of years, Sony A6300 remains one of the best models that can be bought for a reasonable price. At the time of the premiere, the equipment cost over 4,000. PLN, today we will buy it for only 2.5 thousand. zł . For this money we get universal equipment for taking pictures and making movies. The camera surprises with a great autofocus, a matrix that copes well with high ISO and a rich movie mode. It gives the possibility of filming in 4K 30p and Full HD 120p, offering slow-motion mode. The camera also has film profiles, including S-Log. These are really big possibilities for equipment for that amount. It's definitely worth it.
Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III
OM-D E-M10 Mark III is an excellent proposition for amateur photographers. The camera does not offer a rich movie mode or advanced features, but it looks great and gives many options to amateurs. Its appearance is inspired by classic analog cameras. Thanks to the large number of knobs and buttons, it is easy to handle it. The strong point of the camera is a great 5-axis matrix stabilization , fast and accurate autofocus, serial mode at over 8 frames per second and finally a large number of creative filters that allow you to embellish photos. Do not forget about the touch screen and tilting screen, which also makes work easier. This is a very interesting model for amateur photographers.
Panasonic Lumix G80
The Lumix G80 is considered as a direct competitor to the Sony A6300. Nothing strange. It also offers large film possibilities, and at the same time its price is almost identical. The camera has a Micro 4/3 sensor with no anti-aliasing filter, which ensures high quality and resolution of photos. In the film mode, we can spin in 4K, the serial mode offers 9 fps, and the advantage over the A6300 is the presence of a tactile screen and mechanical stabilization of the matrix. However, the slow-motion mode was lacking. Definitely, however, this model and the A6300 are the best cameras, looking at the angle of the film.
Fuji creates cameras that simply take pictures well. X-T20 is a very stylish model, made in a retro style, which has a lot of buttons and knobs, guaranteeing comfortable operation. This model will be ideal for photo enthusiasts, especially street photography. It looks good and is very easy to use. Its APS-C matrix has been deprived of an anti-aliasing filter, guaranteeing high resolution images. The camera can record in 4K, and with an electronic shutter it will take up to 14 photos in one second . The strengths of Fuji models are the quality of photos and the presence of very interesting creative filters that imitate analog films. With their use, we can make really nice photos, with unique colors, without the need to process them.
Canon EOS 77D
For people looking for a classic SLR camera at a price below 3 thousand. PLN will also find something interesting. EOS 77D debuted two years ago, so it's still quite fresh. The camera is equipped with an APS-C sensor and will be a good first reflex camera for the beginning of the adventure with photography. Its strong point is ergonomics, the camera fits well in the hand and handles it comfortably . The screen is tilted and equipped with a touch, the model also has an additional, upper screen, such as in professional SLRs . There is also a lack of microphone input, HDMI and WiFi with NFC support, as well as Bluetooth communication. In film mode, we can also use image stabilization. In turn, the battery is fully charged enough to take up to 600 photos.
D5600 is another SLR in our list, it has less than three years on the back of the neck. Also this model will work well for the beginning of a photographic adventure. Its unquestionable advantage is the simplicity of service , because the manufacturer offers a special mode intended for amateurs. On the other hand, it offers ergonomics, which is close to professional SLRs, although the construction has been somewhat simplified.

The screen of the camera is equipped with a touch, and in movie mode we will record the image in Full HD 50p.
Panasonic Lumix GX9
Despite the low price, Lumix GX9 can do a lot in the hands of a skilful photographer. The camera is relatively small and has a simple body, and the number of buttons and knobs has been limited to the necessary minimum, which, however, does not limit our work. It is facilitated by the tactile and tilt screen (not to the side, which is rare in Panasonics) and the digital viewfinder, which is also tilted. The model does not run out of 4K film mode and useful solutions known from other producer's models, such as 4K Photo or Post Focus. The equipment guarantees really good photos, and also has a 5-axis stabilization matrix . The only weak point is the relatively low battery.
Sony RX100 IV
The only compact in our list. For compact cameras, users are reaching out less and less frequently, but their small size combined with a universal lens guarantee versatility, which makes it possible to take such a camera anywhere. One of the most interesting models that we will get in the price below 3 thousand. is Sony RX100 IV. This camera has a small, because 1-inch matrix, and yet can take pictures and movies no worse than many more expensive models with replaceable optics. In a small enclosure, the manufacturer accommodated a tilting screen, retractable viewfinder and tilting flash. The universal lens, calculated per full frame, gives a focal range of 24-70 mm and f / 1.8-2.8. The lens also has an efficient stabilization. Movie mode allows you to film in 4K 25p, and in lower resolutions (HD and less) we can count on slow-motion. Pictures taken with this small camera look really good, as well as movies, and a bright lens gives you the opportunity to blur the background.
