DSLRs are your next best steps if you want to take your photography leisure to the next level. Some might say that smartphone cameras can be as good as DSLR cameras but this isn't entirely true. While premium phones can now take good food and landscape photos for Instagram, a DSLR camera is a whole lot different thing. With a DSLR camera, you have a wider control on your photography. Its complex manual settings allow you to take higher quality photos, and its wide scope of accessories allow you to use different lenses for different kinds of subjects. Here's our list of the best less-expensive Nikon DSLRs to buy this year.

Nikon D500

The D500 from Nikon is priced at around $1800 and it is a pretty good buy for people looking for a fairly priced DSLR camera. As per Tech Radar, it has 20.9 megapixels and has a 153-point AF. Its rugged and metal build also makes it a little sturdier than some of its competitions. It's actually an Expert's camera but not with a high price tag.

Nikon D7200

If you want a more affordable option, the Nikon D7200 is a great pick. It's at around $830 at Amazon and it's a relatively good DSLR for entry level photographers. It has 24 megapixels, 51-point AF and 6 fps. It's way more affordable than the Nikon D500 but can still get the job done. It may not be a speed-centered camera, but its 24 megapixel count allows it to take sharp imagery.

Nikon D750

Priced at around $1800, the Nikon D750 is a full frame DSLR that offers superb performance and value. It provides 24.3 megapixels and a 51-point AF alongside a maximum continuous shooting speed of 6.5 fps. Its price is similar to D500's so some might opt for the D500 for its higher AF count and shooting speed. However, it's worth noting that the D750 has a higher mega pixel count and it is a great Full-frame DSLR.

Nikon D3300

The Nikon D3300 is one of the best beginner cameras on the market. It offers 24 megapixels, 11-point AF and 5 fps shooting speed. With a price of around $440, it's actually a great buy. If you're still finding your way in photography, the Nikon D3300 is a good way to start. It's got sharp sensors and basic controls, which could be a good thing for entry-level photographers. CNET says that D3300's image quality has improved a lot on its predecessor and it actually performs well for its specific price class.

Overall, the thing with DSLRs is that they are usually pricey. This is why there are people who opt for premium smartphones instead of going for lower-ranged DSLR cameras. However, depending on your photography goals, smartphones may not offer you everything that you need in taking the photos that you want. While most camera phones have already improved over time, there's no doubt that DSLRs are still way better when it comes to sensor, shutter speed, settings and more.
