Canon EOS 1300D Verdict

In order to continue to offer a great-value product, Canon hasn’t done anything exciting here. A better processor, which could have increased frame rate and general operational speeds, would have been nice. Wi-Fi and NFC will be welcomed by many, but if you already have a 1200D, it’s not worth upgrading unless you’re desperate for that connectivity.

The Canon EOS 1200D doesn’t have any Wi-Fi or NFC connectivity, but in other respects it is almost identical to the EOS 1300D.

Nikon D3300

Nikon’s entry-level SLR has a high-resolution sensor with no anti-aliasing filter. Its Guide Mode is very handy for beginners.

Pentax K-S2

A camera well-suited to beginner photographers, with the added benefit of waterproofing and other more advanced features.
