Hi everyone,
I am looking to buy my first DSLR. Since there aren't many choises to compare in the stores where I live, I would like to know your opinion on what each camera feels in hand. I have been reading about which camera is better for a beginner, I have been comparing online different cameras specs. but there isn't anything to read about the feel in hand. My hands are medium sized, not very large and not very small either. I have held in my hand the Nikon D3300 and its grip is too small to feel comfortable. I have tried the Nikon D5300 and it is a little better than the D3300 but still... The Nikon D7200 I had had a hold on, has the best grip of them all.
So... I have held three cameras in my hands, I haven't had a chance to hold a Canon or a Pentax, or a Sony or a Panasonic or anything else, so my experience is very poor. Here are my impressions so far:
The D3300 is uncomfortable to use (at least for me), you have to hold it with your fingertips, not the whole hand like the D7200.
The D5300 is a little better but the end of my fingers are pressed to the lenses, the gap between the grip handle and the lensmount is too small to feel comfortable. Better than the D3300 and not even close to D7200.
The D7200 is a bit too expensive for me :-) and a bit heavy.
I don't think I'll ever be a professional photographer but I don't want the camera feel to get in my way when taking pictures.
So, what are your thoughts, your experience with different cameras. Have you compared your camera to another camera... What do you think?
In my opinion it is the most important thing to look after in a camera. You can have all the top specs but if you have to hold it like a compact camera, then why bother with DSLR, just buy a compact.
Thanks.

A little update... I visited a store full of different dslr-s :-) So, here's what I've found on this subject, based only on the models the store had. I checked these ones: Nikon D3300, d5200, d5300; Canon 700D; Pentax K-50, Panasonic gh8 (or was it gx?). The most comfortable, most natural feel in hand was the Panasonic which had the fastest focus too and was the most expensive one. Next best for feel in hand was the Pentax. Canon was third but I really didn't like how loud was its shutter. As for the Nikons, the most comfortable in hand was the D5200 then D5300 and then D3300. Sorry to say but in this price rank (excluding the Panasonic which is different category) the Nikons were the less comfortable to hold in hand. But they seem to be more advanced than the others, make less noise than both Canon and Pentax and have better video (based on the reviews I have read). So if I have to choose now, with the current price in mind, I'd go for the Nikon D5200 even it being the oldest nikon model. I liked the feel of Canon and Pentax better but I don't know if I can get used to the noise they make, the Canon's shutter and the Pentax' internal image stabilizer. Pentax have a viewfinder that's a class above the Nikon or Canon and is weatherproof! But records only mono audio, doesn't have a connection for external mic and the video goes up to 30fps only. And the Canon... No, that shutter sound... So, if I buy soon, it'll be Nikon D5200. The offer for the hollydays is hard to beat: with the d5200 body you get two lenses 18-55 and 50-200, a tripod and a bag for as low as 600€.

Hey looking for a camera with great video, audio, focus, digital zoom. Something I could make music videos with. Any suggestions? Such as what camera might work or lighting materials or extra gagets I should use. I want the best quality. But I dont know anything about camera's. Researching them is like reading another language, Im dyslxic and not sure what it all means.

My advice is to take different models in your hands to compare them. You have to feel comfortable holding the camera. And the 750d is excellent choise. Just hold it in your hand to see how does it feel.

Hello everyone, I was given a great offer for a Canon 7D (not the mark ii) with a 24-105mm L Lens, for 850, should I take it? is it even worth buying a 7D considering it's almost 9 years since they release?

Guys, as beginner I used Canon EOS 700D and it's fine. As I hve completed my diploma in photography from YMCA. I wanna make it my profession. So people can you suggest me the best one pick. Budget doesn't matters. Canon VS Nikon. Which would be best suited for profession.

Hi Community. Just getting involved with photography again and my introduction to DSLR. Was in it in the '70's when all of this was 35mm film and the long developing process.

Not knowing what to get I purchased the Sony Alpha DSLR and I think it's going to take a lot of learning.

Nice to be part of the community.

Hi,
I've joined this site as it's the first time aspect ratio has been explained in a language I can understand. I look forward to increasing my knowledge and maybe adding a little something now and then.

I've just joined as this site looks very informative, thank you. I own a Fujifilm FinePix S1000. Not top of line. I take closeup, indoor pictures of the Dolls I create and sell on EBay. I live in Seattle and have many cloudy days. However even on sunny days my pictures often turn out yellowish or orangey looking. I occasionally use 2 photo lights with the umbrellas. I do not get true colors of the skin. It is important that I can get the skin color correct. Any thoughts on this one? Thanks Linda
