Believe it or not we all have someone we know who has a passion of photography but unfortunately is not a good photographer or someone who assume himself as a professional photographer and upload Shitty ass  mobile pics on Instagram and Facebook. If you dont know anyone like this then you are that person…

So for those photographer or tend to be photographers who still rub their butts on mobile cameras to get the perfect shot we at Tech Kollect have made a list of some of the best cameras under 500$ for fulfilling your enthusiasm.. All of these camera have some cons and pros but overall they deliver great and smooth performance under all lightening conditions. So without further a do, lets get started..

 Nikon D3400 ($497 with 18-55mm lens)

Megapixels: 24.2
Sensor size: 366 sq. mm
Weight: 13.9 oz.
What we like: The whole package in this price range.
What we don’t: Improvements over the D3300 were minimal.
Lenses: 10 Great Nikon DX Lenses

Nikon D3400 DSLR camera

In 2017, the D3400 is Nikon’s flagship entry-level DSLR and a great value at under $500 with a kit lens. With this camera you get impressive image and video quality for the price including a 24.2-megapixel APS-C image sensor, Full HD 1080p video at a variety of speeds, and the ease of use that has helped make Nikon so popular. All in all, the D3400 is a no-brainer for those looking for an inexpensive DSLR that still gets the job done.

One consideration for buyers is that the D3400 is very similar to the older and slightly cheaper D3300 below. The most notable improvement on the newer model is Nikon’s SnapBridge technology for transferring images and videos via Bluetooth, and the D3400 also got a boost in battery life. With a $50 increase in cost over the D3300, you can’t go wrong with either model but we appreciate the connectivity options and extended battery life of the D3400.


Canon Rebel SL1 ($499 with 18-55mm lens)

Canon Rebel SL1 DSLR camera

Megapixels: 18
Sensor size: 332 sq. mm
Weight: 14.4 oz.
What we like: Small form factor.
What we don’t: We still prefer the D3400 above for a DSLR at this price point.

The Canon SL1 is the lightest DSLR in Canon’s lineup which looks like a successor of the canon D3400 , and we were big fans when it was released a few years ago. Now it feels primed for an update, with an 18-megapixel image sensor (6.2 megapixels less than the Nikon D3400 and D3300) and relatively simple autofocus system that has been surpassed by newer Canon models like the T6i. The SL1 still is a solid entry-level camera, but we prefer the higher resolutions of the cameras above.

In 2017, the most direct competitor to the Rebel SL1 is the Rebel T6. Compared to the T6, the SL1 offers touchscreen functionality, faster shooting, and better low light performance. But the tipping point for us is the kit lens: we like the 18-55mm STM offered with the SL1 over the 18-55mm IS II offered with the T6. You can save $50 with the latter, but for our money we prefer the SL1.

Olympus OM-D E-M10 ($499 with 14-42mm lens)

Olympus OM-D E-M10 mirrorless camera

Megapixels: 16.1
Sensor size: 225 sq. mm
Weight: 13.8 oz.
What we like: Great image quality for the price.
What we don’t: Camera is small in the hand and can be tough to grip.

Olympus makes some of the top mirrorless cameras on the market (they are part of the Micro Four Thirds family), but most are closer to $1,000. This camer may look old fashioned but its fantastic image quality can lure aany photographers at this low price point… Even this camera, the OM-D E-M10, had been around $700 for much of last year before going on sale. At its current price we absolutely love the OM-D E-M10: it’s small and light for travel yet offers the same image sensor as the much pricier Olympus E-M5 Mark II. New to the camera is 5-axis image stabilization and improved electronic viewfinder, among other features. All in all, you get a whole lot of camera here for $430, although we do expect the price to go back up. Until then, OM-D E-M10 is the top mirrorless camera under $500 and will run circles around the Olympus PEN E-PL7 below.

 Fujifilm X-A10 (499$ with same Lens as above)



The mirrorless camera category has one thing that unifies nearly all cameras in it – they’re all a bit expensive. So, when Fujifilm released its X-A10 mirrorless camera in December 2016, heads turned when its price tag came in just under $500 while also promising high-quality images. these two camera may appear similar but they differ drastically so its on the buyer preferance..

The Fujifilm X-A10 measures 6.6 x 6.7 x 3.5 inches and weighs 1.8 pounds, and it sports a modern-yet-retro look with silver and black flourishes. But the technology inside is anything but retro, with a 16.3-megapixel APS-C sensor that provides great color reproduction and stellar image quality. On top of this, the camera offers many filters and shooting modes to help you find the right look for your photos, it has a three-inch LCD screen for viewing photos and it can shoot 1080p HD video. The X-A10 comes with a 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, but it’s also compatible with other X-Series lenses if you want to up your camera game in the future.

GoPro HERO5 Black



Don’t get disappointed with this camera’s small form factor this tiny warehouse has SOME MOST ADVANCED features for enhancing user experience.. like slow motion and 4k Video Recording.

The adventure cam category is fairly young, having been around for only a few years, but it is led by a single brand name that everyone knows: GoPro. And the GoPro HERO5 is the cream of the adventure cam crop. These cameras are not for everyone. Some folks buy these impressive little gadgets only to find that the footage they capture is dull and unworthy of social media. For others, though, it’s an indispensable part of their lifestyle. The HERO5 shoots 4K video at 30 fps, and can capture still images through the 12-megapixel sensor. It comes with built-in WiFi and Bluetooth supports the GoPro App, remote function and sharing options. It features a number of shooting modes that allow you to capture cinema-quality footage, and the built-in touch display makes for a fast, easy, intuitive user experience.
