While most teenagers use cell phone cameras these days, there are some terrific deals out there on DSLRs. And not all of us are teenagers, and some teenagers do have a brain nonetheless!
So check out awesome DSLR deals, such as the Nikon D3300 with 18-55mm and 55-200mm lenses and a camera bag at HALF PRICE. Its image quality is outstanding. But I’d suggest one fast 'prime' (non zoom) lens too: the Nikon 50mm f/1.8G, to be used as a short portrait lens, particularly in lower light. The older (and half the price) Nikon 50mm f/1.8D will do just fine too.
These deals on Nikon DSLRs and deals on Canon DSLRs (and printers) offer outstanding image quality. Of course if you want to spend a LOT more money on high-end mirrorless, here is my Sony mirrorless wishlist.
