If you’re just a beginner, not happy anymore with your cell phone captures, there is an entry-level cheap DSLR camera waiting for you. I will provide you the Pros and Cons of that DSLR with the approx. price and where to buy. In addition to that, I will include best three cheap lenses for your Camera.

Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens

It comes with an 18-55mm Kit lens which is not good at all. Price range between $500 – $600. This camera first introduced in 2015 and still rocking the beginner photographers world. Canon released their updated T7i Camera in 2017, but hey, you wanted to purchase the best but cheap one! T6i is your guy. Let’s look at some pros and cons:


  • 24 Mega Pixel APS-C Sensor
  • Touch Screen Control
  • Built in WiFi
  • NFC
  • 1080p video capture
  • Remote Control With a Smartphone


  • AF Not Faster Like High-End Cameras
  • No Image Stabilization
  • Low Battery Life (approximately 450 shots)

Do not get confused reading the Cons. At that price range, you are getting the best. Let’s learn about some lenses for this camera:

Canon T6i supports both EF and EF-S mount lenses. There are nearly 300 lenses you can find that suits this camera. I want you to use the best one. Since you are a beginner I will suggest you to use these three lenses: (click on the model names to get the price)

  1. Canon EF 50mm f1.8 STM
  2. Canon EF-S 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM
  3. Canon EF 40mm f2.8 STM

Cheap enough? I can assure you that these three lenses are not only great but many professional photographer’s first choices. Number 3 is super compatible if you’re into street photography. Number 2 is best to use when capturing indoor, landscape or architectures. And number 1, this camera is my personal favorite. Best for portrait, street photography and night time or low-light photography.

Just an FYI, I personally own first two lenses. That’s all, honorable reader. Best wishes.
