As much as I don’t want to admit it, we are nearing the end of the decade, which means I need some new cameras to take me into 2020.
But, I don’t exactly have the budget for expensive full frame cameras. Cheap full frame cameras are much more up my alley for Christmas this year.
However, most cheap full frame cameras are not great. In fact, cheap full frame cameras can be a rip off if you don’t purchase the correct one.
As such, I pulled together my three favorite cheap full frame cameras: the Nikon D750, The Sony A7 II, and the Canon EOS RP. Let’s talk about them.
The Nikon D750 is the cheapest full frame camera that Nikon carries, which means it doesn’t come with anything fancy like 4K video or fast live view AF, but it still comes with a tilting rear-screen and an incredible dynamic range.
The Nikon D750 controls work similarly to Nikon’s other hobby-level DSLRs instead of its professional DSLRs (which can be a pro or con depending upon how you look at it).
The Nikon D750 has a 51-point AF system, shoots in 1080p full-HD at up to 60fps and weighs under 2 lbs.
Other Nikon D750 Specs include:
There are rumors that the Nikon D750 is about to be replaced, which is good news for bargain hunters because that means the price is about to go down.
Until then, though, you can purchase the Nikon D750 brand new on Amazon for $1,200.
Or, you can head over to MPB and get it starting at $885.
Prices vary depending on the condition of the camera, but even the more “expensive” like-new ones are $1,109, and that’s a pretty darn good deal for a full frame camera with this kind of specs!
Sony A7 II
Out of all of our cheap full frame cameras, the Sony A7 II is the cheapest.
The Sony A7 II features in-body image stabilization, 5fps burst speed, and a 24 megapixel CSC. It’s built out of magnesium alloy, which keeps the body light and comfortable in your hands.
Other Sony A7 II specs include:
The one complaint with the Sony A7 II is that it didn’t feature enough upgrades from the Sony A7 to be worth the price when it came out, but since this full frame camera was released 5 years ago, this point is no longer relevant.
Or, MPB is offering a Sony A7 II in excellent condition for $815. Either way, that’s not a bad deal at all!
Canon EOS RP
Finally, the Canon EOS RP, or as some call it, Canon’s “baby.” The best thing about the Canon EOS RP is that it gives you access to all of the RF lenses for much cheaper than previously possible.
The Canon EOS RP is also compact and it comes with a DSLR lens converter so you can use both the newer RF lenses and your older, pre-owned EF-mount lenses.
But, the Canon EOS RP is a good camera in and of itself. It comes with a 26.2MP CMOS sensor, the DIGIC 8 processor, and this camera is the only camera with 4K video capabilities on our list.
Other Canon EOS RP specs include:
You can also save $100 and go pick up the last Canon EOS RP MPB.com has up right now for $900.
MPB is the website photographers use to sell, buy and switch their gear for a few reasons. MPB offers a 6 month warranty on all of their products, which is almost unheard of in the used technology world.
You can trade in your gear to make your new (used) gear cheaper. You can also find the newest used cameras on MPB. All of the cameras I featured on this list are relatively new, but pretty much as soon as a replacement camera comes out, you can be assured that MPB will have stock of the camera that was just replaced.
But, the real reason I trust MPB with my hard-earned money is their grading system. I know exactly the condition my new camera is going to arrive in. No more guessing with sites like eBay or Craigslist!
Head over to MPB to browse these and other inexpensive full frame cameras.
