Advantages: Ease of use
Disadvantages: none to my mind
I've always enjoyed taking pictures, I mean who doesn't? I bought the Canon D500 a couple of years ago and can recommend it to anyone wanting to start on DSLR trail of photography.
The quality of the picture is ultimately down to you, the photographer but the amount of goodies inside the D500 does make taking that perfect, sharp picture a doddle.
The menu is clear and once you have found your way round it, you will see what i mean about the amount of goodies.
I bought the model that had the 18-55 is lens as part of the kit, but with hindsight (and isn't that amazing?) I think buying the camera body only would have been better. That way you can start with your own choice of lens and the general consensus is that the 50mm f/1.8 II lens is a great and not too expensive piece of kit. If you would prefer a good zoom lens to start with, then the 55-250 f/4-4.6 is another cracking buy.
I've enjoyed buying cheap filters and 'messing about' with them, to try and get varied effects, but each to our their on just how you will get your enjoyment out of your camera.
The life of the battery between charges is superb for when you are out for the day, but again I wish I had a back up battery, my next purchase maybe.
The weight of the camera is certainly not a problem, easily put in a bag and thrown over your shoulder and you're off!
One downside though, I certainly wouldn't take my Canon away with me if I was going with the lad's. A good pocket camera is the one for those occasions.
So, all in all I am exceedingly pleased with my first DSLR, the Canon D500.
Summary: Excellent first DSLR, without breaking the bank.
