Whether you’re a hobbyist or a professional, photography is more than a simple act. It’s a calling, it’s a vocation, it’s something that means something. That’s why we at Techscheme have banged our heads together and made a list of some of the best digital cameras available at our partners Currys PC World for you to peruse. Remember, buying through Techscheme lets you save up to 12% on the listed price while spreading the cost over up to three years.

Nikon D7500 DSLR Camera
The Nikon D7500 is a beast of a machine. It has a 20.9 Megapixel DX-format for crisp, detailed images with rich tonal gradations. The EXPEED 5 processing engine dramatically reduces fine noise in the ISO range, which is impressive in itself at 1640000 – allowing for some stunning low-light image and video capturing.

It shoots video in 4K Ultra HD at 30fps (or 60fps at Full HS 1080p), has 51-point autofocus system that easily tracks moving subjects at low-light and the Advanced Scene Recognition working with 180k-pixel RGB metering sensors mean you’re able to capture images at precise exposure. It’s a supremely impressive camera for serious photographers.

Fujifilm X-T20 Mirrorless Camera with 16-50 mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens
Next is Fujifilm’s X-T20, the perfect camera for serious hobbyists. It’s got a great reliable zoom lens that you can get into straight away, whether you want to snap a quick pic on the street, capture the beautiful countryside or take a portrait. The 24 Megapixel sensor lets you take professional quality images with a large phase detection auto-focus area so that you won’t miss any of those little details.

The lightweight design with LCD vari-angle touchscreen means that’s it’s easy to use in every situation, even at tight angles. The X-T20 shoot video at 4K UltraHD and Full HD and the camera also includes great time-lapse features for those perfect arty shots.

Canon EOS 200D DSLR Camera with 18-55 mm f/3.5-f/5.6 DC & 50 mm f/1.8 STM Lens
Next up is the Canon EOS 200D with its 24.2 Megapixel sensor with great low-light capabilities that let you capture not just quality images, but preserve the atmosphere of the environment with them. It comes with two lenses; there’s a 50mm prime lens that’s perfect for portraiture and capturing compelling closer-range shots of the world around you.

Then there’s the 18-55mm zoom lens that lets you run the whole gamut - getting you closer to those inaccessible objects, setting you up for great close-up portraits or widening the field for excellent wide-angle landscape pictures.

Panasonic Lumix DC-GX800 Mirrorless Camera with 12-32 mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens
We’ll finish on the Panasonic Lumix a more affordable camera those non-professionals who just love photography. The 16 Megapixel sensor lets you take great pictures and capture video at 4K or Full HD with a fold out flash and low-light autofocus for those darker situations. There’s optical image stabilisation built right into the lens which will compensate for not-so-steady hands letting you take sharp, blur-free pictures.

It’s a great camera to whip out for either a dynamic landscape shot or a fun selfie, in fact, the camera comes with some great selfie features like Beauty Retouch and Panorama Selfie to help you take the best pictures of your face possible.
