Canon’s well-built 250D is much smaller than most DSLRs, but it has a moveable screen and a large sensor for impressive photo quality.

Panasonic LUMIX G100

Perfect for budding vloggers, the G100 has 4K recording and three microphones to record sound from all angles. It’s also very compact, so is a good one to take on travels.

Canon EOS 2000D DSLR

A little more budget-friendly, especially if you already have a lens and just buy the body. This model isn’t fancy – it doesn’t have a touch screen, for example – but it has lots of shooting modes and a 24.1 megapixel APS-C sensor.

Nikon Z50 Mirrorless Camera

The Z50 is a pricier option, but the toned-down, beginner-friendly version of Nikon’s popular Z6 and Z7 cameras is compact and has a great viewfinder and tilting screen.
