Cheap, but not very cheerful

The Canon EOS Rebel T100 / EOS 4000D really does feel like a camera that's been designed and built to a budget imposed by especially parsimonious accountants.

With most of the camera made up of components from the parts bin for long-superseded Canon DSLRS, there really is nothing much to recommend it over other entry-level DSLR rivals, apart from, perhaps, the price.

With the EF-S 18-55mm kit lens, the EOS Rebel T100 / EOS 4000D is one of the most affordable DSLRs you can buy right now. However, while this low price is designed to tempt new users, our worry is that the limited feature set and poor screen will see them quickly revert back to their smartphone. Eat beans for a month if you have to, but if you want an entry-level DSLR you'll be better off spending a bit more and getting something like the EOS Rebel T7 / EOS 2000D or the Nikon D3400
