If you’re looking for an entry-level dSLR, the Canon T7 kit with two lenses – the EF-S 18-55mm and the EF 75-300mm – is a decent price of $ 500. It is regularly $ 600.
Many retailers have Nikon’s Z50 mirrorless camera kit with two lenses – Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm f3.5-6.3 VR and Nikkor Z DX 50-250mm f4.5-6.3 VR – for $ 250. It is a smaller camera that is more compact than standard dSLRs and is preferred by vloggers.

The 2020 GoPro upgrade includes a front-facing selfie screen and a stronger 5K video resolution (at 30 frames per second). In other words, if you want all the latest bells and whistles, this is the one. A Hero 9 bundle – a floating hand grip, a magnetic swivel clip, an extra battery, a 32GB SD card and a camera case, as well as a one-year subscription to GoPro’s cloud storage service – is currently on sale for GoPro. $ 350 on the website.

If you can do without that top-end resolution and front-facing screen, the old Hero 8 is a great choice. It still does 4K video at 60 fps, so it’s no slouch. Read our GoPro Hero8 Black review.
If you’re looking for a really solid GoPro at a cheaper price, check out the GoPro Hero 7 Silver, which is available on Amazon for just $ 180. The device takes 4K 30fps video, is easy to use, has voice control and is completely waterproof for even the most rugged outdoor adventures.
This GoPro is technically discontinued, but it is about $ 110 less than the Hero 7 Black, which is the entry-level model in GoPro’s current lineup. Not bad for a fully waterproof video camera that can still capture full HD video. It has been in and out of Walmart’s stock over the past few days, so check it back if it is listed out of stock.
