Conclusion

Whether you’re looking to take high-quality photographs or just want something to throw in your bag to take snaps on the go, for less than $500 you have the ability to find the perfect camera for your needs.

My favorite on the list would have to be the Canon Rebel T5, but I might just be a little biased since it’s the camera that I carry around with me on my adventures. It does however provide high-quality shots and is very user friendly (There’s still tons of settings on this thing that I still have no idea how to use…lol)

A close second, would be the Nikon D3300. I find it similar to the Canon Rebel and it rivals it in all aspects. I like its usability and how easy it is to take great high-quality snapshots with the auto-focus. The interchangeable lens is also a huge pro.

Overall, whether you want a digital SLR camera or just a simpler shoot and point, you can easily find an excellent travel camera for under $500
