The problem with this kind of question is that everyone will recommend their own favourite cameras.

Fortunately just about every camera on the market above the really cheap point-and-shoot models can take very good photographs. So in a way, it doesn't matter which you buy. Each model has its little problems (even the most costly) but basically they all work well.

One approach is to start with an entry model such as the Canon EOS 1200D, Pentax K-50, Sony A58 or Nikon D3300 and see how you get on. Among mirrorless there are the Sony A3000 or A5000 and similarly priced models from Panasonic or Olympus.

After a year or two you will know more and be able to pick a better camera without losing too much money if you decide to dump the old one. By then you will know which features are most important for your way of working.
