Canon EOS 600D (body only)
If you're after a fantastic SLR camera at an entry level price, the EOS 600D is it. That's down to a tag-team operation consisting of an 18MP sensor, 9-point autofocus and 1080p video recording. Not only does it shoot jaw-dropping photos with bags of detail and brilliant colour accuracy, but its flip-out 3in screen makes achieving those shots just that little bit easier. Meanwhile its nifty menu system is intuitive and the camera itself is clever enough to make the best of every shooting situation – even if you have no idea what you're doing. Great for amateurs and experienced snappers alike.
