We’ve found a couple of sweet early Black Friday camera deals on the Nikon D3500 – the best entry-level DSLR you can buy right now online. This is a camera that would make an ideal gift for someone who is studying photography at college - or for anyone who wants to get into serious picture taking.

We particularly like the two-lens kit we have spotted at Walmart, but there is a less expensive single-lens offer we have uncovered too - if that suits you budget better.

The D3500 is a refreshed version of Nikon’s ever-popular Nikon D3400. It delivers ultra-sharp photos and videos, and faster continuous shooting than its rival, the Canon EOS 750D/Rebel T6i. And it’s perfect for beginners, offering a lightweight, responsive and extremely easy-to-use way into DSLR photography.
