A smartphone camera can find a good job nowadays when it comes to taking great photos. But if you want to pursue advanced photography, a DSLR is a better choice to learn the essentials.
Because DSLR ' s are a substantial investment, we recommend starting with a DSLR budget. Polishing your skills on an entry-level DSLR and then switching to a high-end / expensive DSLR is usually the preferred path. So, here are some great options under Rs 30,000 that you can start with.

The Pentax K-500 camera is equipped with a 16-megapixel powerful sensor that delivers promising image quality in combination with the PRIME M image processing engine.
The K-500 shows that an entry level DSLR does not have to compromise on functions or control. The excellent image quality and finish further enhance the appeal of the camera, just like the viewfinder with 100% coverage.
Although the camera is good for the price, there is a reason why we have placed it at number five. The lack of a focal point in the viewfinder is a small but very striking omission. That, along with the K-500's tendency to be underexposed, makes it easy to lose confidence in the cameras with autofocus and exposure metering.
