Do you think yourself a bit of an amateur photographer? Are you the snap-happy one of the group that’s always pushing people together for pictures?

With so many to choose from, where do you start? The wide range of cameras available on the market can be a little overwhelming and there are numerous factors to consider, such as speed, quality, price and size. Of course, then there’s the issue of getting your dream camera for a lower price – but you’ll have Flubit.com for that and all other things you’d normally buy from Amazon! Actually, we can also help you decide which camera would be the best buy for you with our helpful DSLR guide…


canon_eos_1100dOn a budget

Who doesn’t want great quality and a great price? Sometimes, this can be hard to find, but with the Canon EOS 1100D, you’ll get just that. It doesn’t have all of the features that some of the more expensive cameras have, but it’s easy to use, compact, lightweight and offers a wealth of features perfect for enthusiasts. This camera is ideal for those who want an entry-level DSLR camera they can take with them everywhere, on holiday, to festivals, and even just out and about. It offers an LCD screen, 12 megapixels, HD movies and much more besides, and it’s great to cut your teeth on if you’re new to DSLRs.

If you love capturing the sun at just the right height in the sky or stepping out in the rain just to get a great shot, then the Nikon D3200 is the camera for you. Ideal for entry-level photographers with a good eye, this easy-to-handle camera boasts an in-built, personal photography coach – the Nikon Guide Mode – and allows you to take excellent quality pictures, even in low light, thanks to a 24.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and EXPEED 2 image processor. It also has an internal image editing facility and lets you share your images via smartphones and tablets instantly with a wireless adaptor.



If you’re after a camera that will offer you high-quality images, full HD movie capture, great autofocus performance, a great shooting speed and touchscreen technology, then you couldn’t do much better than the Canon EOS 650D. This camera is known as a bit of an all-rounder as it can be used for anything from capturing a football match to taking in the scenery, all at a pretty good level. It offers better quality than the ‘on a budget’ Canon 1100D, which is evident by the difference in price, but you’ll still be able to buy it for less than from Amazon with Flubit.com.

The Pentax K5 II is capable of producing vibrant, enticing shots even in lower light conditions. Boasting superior performance, speedy handling and intuitive controls, the rewards for those who take the time to familiarise themselves with this semi-professional beauty are crisp, clean images that boast incredible depth. As it’s completely weathertight, you won’t have to slow down in heavy rain, cold or dusty conditions, making it the perfect DSLR for those photographers who want their camera to keep going as long as they do. This is a slightly higher investment, but it’s worth every penny.


Nikon_D800Professional, impeccable image quality

The Nikon D800 is designed for professional photographers who require results of the highest quality, demand unrivalled performance and a fully integrated imaging system. Whilst potentially costing a little too much for the keen amateur, this is an example of one of the most beautiful cameras going. With a groundbreaking 36.3 megapixels and a powerful EXPEED 3 image-processing engine offering imaging potential that rivals some of the best studio cameras, it is Nikon’s newest  FX-format DSLR. Your images will reach new heights. Whilst this is certainly a high-investment purchase that you likely won’t go for without knowing a great deal about photography in advance, we’ve found it outstrips its competitors and is a firm favourite – particularly with the famous Flubit.com discounted personal offer price that could see you making significant savings on its listed price from Amazon!


Now that you know what’s what, all you need to do is decide what you’ll be using your camera for and choose the right one! Once you’ve found it on Amazon, give us the URL and we could offer you a discount of around 12%, providing you with a better price than they’d ever be able to offer. Smile!
