When it comes to buying a new camera, the big question is: “How much should I spend?”
Potato Jet is a fantastic YouTuber, and this new video from him talking about how much to spend on a camera is no different. He goes in depth into every price bracket you can think of, and thankfully, he includes the lenses in the prices. The last thing you want is a price guide pointing you towards a camera without a lens, forcing you to add on to an already limited budget.
This video is a good reminder at just how good of a camera you can get for super cheap. The Canon M50, for example, is under $600 for the camera, lens, memory card, and camera bag. We are at a point where good cameras are cheap and cheap cameras are good.
Something that the video delves into that I want to reiterate is to invest more in your lenses than your camera body if you can. This is because a camera lens depreciates in value more slowly than a camera body. You can often see the difference between a cheap lens and an expensive lens faster than a cheap camera and an expensive camera (within reason, of course).
