I recently bought a NIKON D5300 with a basic kitlens (18-55mm) for around 37k which I use mostly for photography. I believe any decent camera will work fine for photos and video making for blogging purpose. But if your blog's focus is more about Photography/making YouTube video's then you should put some more effort in choosing a good lens for your camera. I recently made an art video on my YouTube channel for which I used my Mobile phone (Redmi Note 4) which is capable of recording HD videos and I'm pretty much satisfied with the result. 

For your budget you could get a good camera with a basic lens. May be you can later expand your lens later if needed.

Hi Srinivasan,

Thanks for your reply, I want a DSLR camera, my blog is not about photography it's a lifestyle blog. But when we work for any brand then they need good quality photos, which is not possible with my Digicam or Mobile :(

So want a DSLR, will check NIKON D5300, thanks for your guidance :)

Agreed. For a lifestyle blog you need something more than just a digital camera. I hope you get a good DSLR soon. Happy blogging :)

I really want a Lumix GH5 >_<". But I am using Canon 600D with a very old Asahi Pentax 55mm lenses. I would rather buy a second-hand A6000 with some warranty in it if my budget was restricted to that range. Sony's low light performance is phenomenal. New ones cost 45k.

Humm, Lumix GH5, I cannot even dream about it  :(

Which is best between Canon and Nikon? it's a confusion

Will also check Sony cameras but 45K is over budget.

Thanks for your guidance :)

For videos? I wouldn't choose either. For photos? Others will suggest, but I would rather buy a body only camera and then a 50mm f.18 nifty-fifty lens. If you need zoom, get the kit lens.  Canon and Nikon have lagged behind Panasonic and Sony for videos so much people are not finding it amusing at all. If you want for still and video, save  The camera will be with you for 4-5 years anyways so might as well make a good purchase decision.

Most of the videos that I make are on whichever smartphone I happen to be using. I do have a Nikon D5100 but I hardly ever use it for making videos. The reason is that most videos will be short or very short clips joined in a video-editing software or app to complete a story. And these apps for a smartphone are not only easy to learn and operate but are fairly economical. For the present, this system works well for me.

I'm using Nikon D5200 and Smartphone (iPhone 6 plus, S8+ and Honor 8 Pro). Most of the time I use my iPhone as Nikon is bulky and can't be carried always.

I'm using a Nikon D5200 with 18-55mm kit lens, for my photos. I often make do with my cellphone camera, though Android cameras, I absolutely hate, especially for their low light performance (poor photo quality) but what would hardware do, if the software is shitty. Would like to have a cellphone with better camera, as it comes in handy to have a quick snapper with you, almost all the time.

Don't hate Android or iPhone cameras :P There are few Smartphones that has absolutely fantastic camera which can give you the best result out of low light or heavy...Galaxy S8, Google Pixel etc. are nice one Laughing

I use a Canon 600D for all photos and videos. Bought it three years back. not planning for any upgrade. For quick vids, my reliable Honor 6x.

Content must be of first importance. You can try out any mobile camera for starting out making videos. As far as photograph is concerned same logic applies here. Invest in entry level dslr. I used earlier Canon 500D for photography, then I upgraded to Canon 70D for vlogging. Hope this helps. Check out Website- www.abhinavdeb.com https://www.youtube.com/abhinavdeb
