What Camera Should I Buy?

Hi Everyone,

I've recently decided to purchased my FIRST DSLR camera. Now as you can imagine when researching which camera I should go with there are literally thousands of articles which all recommend a different model. Not to mention, when you add in which accessories to go with the research becomes even more extensive/confusing lol! That's why I figured the best option for me would be to  join this community and ask for advise. Which DSLR would you recommend for a beginner? Below are some details to help with your recommendations! Thank you in advance for your help and I welcome any information you believe will be beneficial for me to know.

- This camera will be used mostly for travel/vacation photos

- Because I will be traveling with the camera I'm looking for something that's not too bulky.

- Since this is my first DSLR, perhaps it would be a good idea to have a camera with good AF or image stabilization?

- Which lenses would you recommend that have the most versatility? I would like to have the ability to zoom if an image I'm trying to capture is further away.

- I will be using my Gopro Hero 6 for most of my video footage, but having a DSLR with decent video capability would be a plus.

- I would like to be around $1200 with the purchase of the camera as well as the recommended accessories.

I'm sure there is a lot more detail I should be giving, but with the lack of knowledge from being a beginner this is all I can provide. All I need at the moment is camera that takes great pictures, a few settings to assist in getting great shots as well as features that I can grow into as I progress with this hobby.

Thank you again for your help!
