3. Nikon D7100: $1,200
The D7100 is one of Nikon’s best crop sensor DSLRs. In contrast to full-frame cameras, a “crop sensor” DSLR has a photo sensor that is smaller than standard 35mm film. However, this camera is packed with the latest technology and it’s also cheaper than the full-frame models. Nikon dropped the use of an optical filter in this model, which makes it more prone to undesirable moiré (or aliasing) patterns when shooting items with fine patterned detail. For clothing shots you might want to look at the D7000 or D5200 models.
