Oh snap: Nikon D5
Professional cameras come at professional prices, and this beauty is Nikon’s flagship camera. This is the kind of kit you buy if you want to look and feel like you know what you’re doing. With the best sensor and autofocus on the market, it’s a model made for real photography enthusiasts that, unlike others, boasts the tech to match its exorbitant cost. They say it’s the photographer and not the camera that captures a good photo, but with the Nikon D5 we’re willing to make an exception and say it’s probably both.

Pictures are worth 1,000 words, and this camera is only 1,000 dirhams. If you’re looking to delve into photography without the real-deal price range, Canon released the 4000D for newcomers just like you. It’s built for those first-time buyers who want to go beyond their smartphone snaps. The standard 18-55mm kits lens included is a good place to start off as well, most photographers will tell you, lenses are the real money-sink when it comes to photography.
