Inexpensive camera equipment I use for my budget photography series. I use created this series to give a message that many times technology is not the limiting but you made technology limit your creativity. A lot of times amazing results can come from just a simple and inexpensive gear!

Canon Eos 300D

This is one of the first entry level DSLRs from Canon to come out and it was also one of the DSLRs that made so many people switched from film SLRs to DSLRs. Launched back in august 2003 with a 6.3 mp APSC size sensor, this camera still delivers a nice resolution for a lot of people today albeit with old technologies. I got this camera for 25 euros second hand and I have taken so many nice images with it already. To watch my review of the camera, click here.

Signma 18-200mm 1:3.5 - 6.3 DC

This particular Sigma 18-200 f/3.5-6.3 lens is an all-around lens with a standard wide angle to telephoto focal length. This lens is not the sharpness 18-200mm that is out there in the market but for around 50 euros second hand (could be a bit cheaper or more expensive depending on when/where you purchase the lens) and when mounting this lens on a 6.3mp camera like the 300d, sharpness factor is not that important anymore as the resolution of the camera is not that high to notice that much flaws in the sharpness of the lens. However, the colour fringing, low contrast and vignetting will still appear on the results. That being said, those flaws can still be reduced in post processing.

Yongnuo YN 50mm 1.8

Yongnuo 50mm 1.8 is another nice lens especially for budget photography. With a nice low light capability and super low price tag for a brand new version (around 50 euros depending on when/where you purchase it from). It may not be the sharpest lens and certainly not even as sharp and contrasty as the Canon ef 50mm 1.8 stm lens but the fact is, I will be using this lens with the 300d for the budget photography series. This means that having a lower resolution file sensor does not need the entire resolution of the optics to get a sharp looking image of the lens. Furthermore, this setup was never meant to be use for shooting photos for billboards, if the final picture will be printed on an A4 size paper (or just a little bit bigger) or just for social media and websites, it is totally fine. :-) Please find a video about the lens here: Yongnuo 50mm 1.8

Yongnuo YN 660 Speedlite Flash

This is one of a very powerful flash light that is also very affordable. At under 70 euros (could be a lot cheaper or just a bit more expensive depending on when/where you purchase the product). With the flash, you can use it to create so many effects for the image such as use it to freeze action when you are taking long exposures, as a fill light, as a slave flash and use your main camera flash to control it and many more. I've also made a video unboxing it here: Yongnuo YN 660 Flash unboxing
