I was looking to buy a camera (Body and Lens) for under $1500 for myself. I'm a beginner and have never used a dedicated camera before. I've been using my Galaxy S10's Pro Mode to learn the basics of photography (ISO, White Balance, Shutter Speeds) and was looking for a camera that will allow me to further learn photography and will also allow me to shoot 4K videos, which I realize a lot of new cameras have included in them. From what I've read and Correct me on this, I realized that a Camera Body will last me a good amount of time, and it's only the lens, which also happens to be the expensive part, that needs to be upgraded when the time comes.
I can push my budget to $1800 as I realize I would also have to invest in buying a good tripod, along with other accessories that you can recommend besides an sd card as I already have one.
Looking forward to reading your views and recommendations!
