There isn't much to dislike about Canon's SL3 SLR camera. I buy camera bodies often, keep them a year and then often upgrade (I travel for a living). I have yet to find a really good POINT & SHOOT camera to carry for my travels. They always let me down (Canon included) in performance. Now comes anot...

The 4 Best DSLR Cameras For Beginners - Spring 2022
Still, the camera's relatively compact size, fully articulated touchscreen, and decent video quality in FHD help make it one of the best DSLR cameras that we've tested.

Do I need a lens upgrade or a camera upgrade?
I'd go for a camera upgrade, see what fits within your budget and go for it. The SL3 should be a noticeable improvement, but not drastic. If you can go for a 90D it would be even more noticeable, but it might be on the upper end of your budget a bit, depending on where you live. Unrelated, the 24mm f/2.8 pancake is one of my favourite lenses, check it out if you're looking for something wider.
I love it!
I am in love with this camera! Before I upgraded to this one I had the T3i, but this camera is worlds ahead of the T3i. The menus are different, I can connect it via wifi to a number of devices, the pictures are so clear and crisp. There are a multitude of settings for manual and auto and I love the...

So, I’m new to cameras, and I was wondering if you guys could give me some good first beginner cameras?
More simple cameras like a point and shoot you will outgrow quickly, an entry level DSLR style like a Canon rebel will give you great service for years however if you plan on going pro you will outgrow, a pro or semi pro like a 90D or a 5D will be a big learning curve but if you master it will serve you very very well. So it comes down to your budget and where you see yourself going with it.

Reasons to upgrade to an R5/(R5C) vs Reasons a 5Dmk4 is just fine? (FOR STILLS).
On DSLR, that's a non isssue, because it only activates on shutter half press, but it's constant on mirrorless. I have yet to accidentally under or over expose with the EVF, compared to with the SL3.

Canon EOS Rebel SL3 Review
Canon's smallest SLR, the SL2, receives a minor upgrade in the form of the SL3 ($599.99, body only). The new edition has a more modern image processor and support for 4K video, but doesn't offer a lot of other upgrades. It's a solid option, though not quite as compact as mirrorless alternatives&mdas...

To many flaws.
I know this is an entry level camera but I'd urge you not to select this camera. Take a look at a Fuji X-T30 over this one. Canon really crippled this camera. 2 huge setbacks are having to use Canon brand flashes and receivers when using the hotshoe, and taking away 1080 at 24 FPS. There are brands ...

Will the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM work with my SL3?
Yes, it will work fine on the SL3 and is a good option for use in low light due to the f/1.8 aperture. Just be aware that on the SL3 the 50mm focal length gives a narrower angle of view than it does on a full-frame camera, due to the smaller sensor.
Going to buy my first camera tomorrow.
For the type of video you're doing, I prefer the Canon. The autofocus is smoother and you can scrub footage to review it, which is really important. The Sony has weird old VCR-style controls to review footage and it means sometimes I don't catch problems I need to know about soon enough to refilm.
