Most of us now take photos with a smartphone camera. But while they're small, portable, and generally produce good pictures without us having to think too much, they don't beat the quality and feel of a proper camera.
A DSLR is something you can use to capture beautiful pictures of friends, family, holidays and precious moments. If you'd like a new camera, though, it can be hard to choose a model that balances affordability with features, as well as one that won't weigh you down.
The Canon EOS 250D (opens in new tab) is light enough to be carried around on the go, ready to shoot gorgeous 24.1 megapixel images as soon as the moment strikes. We gave the EOS 250D a glowing review (opens in new tab) earlier in the year. Let's take a closer look at why...
The perfect portable camera
As we've mentioned, the Canon EOS 250D is compact. It's the world’s lightest DSLR camera with a movable screen*, and this means it can be with you and your family much more often – whether you're on the go, on holiday or just at home.
Wherever you are, it's easy to send photos straight from the camera to your phone (for speedy social sharing) thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi.
Unlike using a phone, though, the touchscreen can be moved around to make easy work of awkward angles and selfies.
There's no need to worry about the Canon EOS 250D being complicated to use either, even if you're new to using a 'proper' camera. It has a guided user interface that teaches you about your camera as you shoot. Plus, the 'Creative Assist mode' helps unlock your inner photographer, try new looks and enhance your images.
Aside from photos, home movies have always been another popular way to document family life. The Canon EOS 250D has you covered there, too, as it's able to record footage in 4K resolution.
