The 6 Best Cameras Under $1,000

Looking for a camera for either a side hustle or just to take photos of those special moments doesn't have to make you go shopping in a panic. Here are our top picks for cameras under $1,000.

The Canon EOS Rebel T7 can be purchased either with the body alone or as a bundle. We recommend getting the bundle because the bundle includes the body, one smaller lens, and one larger lens.

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV is considered one of the entry-level models in the company's DSLR-style lineup of Micro Four Thirds cameras.

The Sony A6400 is a mirrorless camera with a 24MP interchangeable lens camera with an APS-C sensor. This camera would serve plenty of photographers for taking family photos to pro shooters looking for a lightweight second body.

The Nikon D3200 is a bit of an older model that was released in 2012, but it is still one of our favorites. This camera is still popular, and you may still be able to find a refurbished one if someone is willing to part with theirs.

The D3500 is the next step up from the previous D3200 in the series, but with some updated features. The cheaper and lighter frame with longer battery life sets the two cameras apart.

With the increasing popularity of mirrorless cameras, only a few manufacturers are left in the consumer DSLR market. Canon, Nikon, and Ricoh (who also makes Pentax-branded DSLRs) remain. Among these, the Rebel series are the biggest sellers. The Rebel 8Ti sits at the top of the line, placing the T7i that came out in 2017.
