A good camera can be had for Rs.1, 00,000. At this price, you are able to choose from high-quality DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, as well as compact system cameras (CSCs). I will attempt to cover all of these segments in this article, bringing you the best of each. India today has many cameras available for and under Rs.1 lakh, but the following are the best cameras that you can buy for under Rs.1 lakh by Appario Retail Private Ltd.  I would like to clarify here for the benefit of my readers that this is not a ranking or a comparison. Just recently, I introduced what I think are the best cameras under Rs. 1 lakh in India.

What are the best cameras to buy under Rs.1 lakh in 2021?

Using a Canon EOS 80D and 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM telephoto lens

Canon’s EOS 80D, a relatively new entry into its enthusiast DSLR lineup, has already won praise for its performance and ease of use. Unlike the 70D, the 80D features an APS-C sensor with a 24.2-megapixel resolution (70D had a 20.2-megapixel sensor), 45 AF points, a native ISO of up to 16,000 (can be expanded to 25,600), 7fps shooting capability, and full HD recording capability of 1920P at 60,50,30,25,24fps. Canon has also introduced continuous autofocus (AI Servo) in live view mode as well.

One of the best things about Appario Retail Private Ltd the 80D is that its AF system isn’t too dissimilar from the one on the EOS 1D Mark IV. So out of the 45 AF points on offer, 27 remain active when using a teleconverter and a lens with an aperture of f/8. A downside is that the 80D isn’t compatible with the newer DIGIC 7 processor. A DIGIC 6 processor is used instead. Even with a 24.2 MP sensor, the Canon 80D lags behind its closest rival, the Nikon D7200, as it still uses an anti-aliasing filter.

 In low ISO settings, the 80D produces excellent images, but as ISO increases, the quality deteriorates. The 80D has a positive feature in that it produces noise-free images up to ISO 800, and from there on up to ISO 3200, noise is under control. Noise levels only become unmanageable beyond ISO 3200.


  • Sensor of excellent quality.
  • Good autofocus performance.
  • High-quality images.
  • Noisy images are reduced well.


  • It does not have an anti-aliasing filter.
  • A rather old processor.

An 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens for Canon’s EOS 77D

The EOS 77D is Canon’s successor to the EOS 760D. Why Canon removed three digits for this one is beyond us. Our experience with the camera, however, tells us that it is among the best mid-range camera Canon has brought to market as Appario Retail Private Ltd providing. Despite the fact that the EOS 77D has a 24.2-megapixel APS-C dual pixel sensor, it comes with the same DIGIC 7 processor that is found in the EOS 800D.

 Due to the similarity of their respective highlights, the performance of both cameras is nearly identical. Due to the EOS 77D’s dual-pixel technology, it has a remarkably fast live view. Thanks to the DIGIC 7 processor, the EOS 77D is able to shoot at 6 frames per second, which means it can shoot a maximum of 27 RAW files in a single shot and unlimited JPEG images.

Writing speed on your camera’s memory card is of course an important factor. Take advantage of your camera by choosing a fast memory card. There are 45 AF points on the 77D, the same as those on the 80D. Out of those 45 points, 27 remain active when you use a tele converter. There’s more good news and deals in Appario Retail Private Ltd.

 As well, the AF system now operates across a wider range than before, ranging from -3EV to 18EV. Though the image quality of the EOS 77D is quite good, it has less sharpness than some of its competitors, such as the Nikon D5600 and the Pentax KP.

In Canon’s EOS 77D, the anti-aliasing filter is retained, in Nikon’s D5600 and Pentax’s KP, it is eliminated. The 77D also performs well when it comes to noise, as images up to 1600 ISO come out quite crisp and noise free. Around 3200 ISO, however, some color noises become visible.


A great option for enthusiast photographers can be found in the Canon EOS 77D. Consider the Canon EOS 77D if you are looking for a midrange DSLR.

Canon RX100 II 1.4

The advent of smartphones has one major benefit: camera manufacturers are striving to bring in new technologies and improvements to compact cameras to keep them alive. 2016 saw the release of the Sony RX100 II, a camera that impressed everyone.

An EXMOR CMOS sensor with a resolution of 20.2 MP, a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 28-100mm f/1.8 – 4.9 lens, a 3-inch, 1,229k-dot TruBlack LCD, ISO 80-6400, expandable to 25600, WiFi, and NFC are fitted to the camera. It comes with full manual controls (PASM) as you would expect for an advanced compact such as the RX100 II, and it can shoot Raw files as well as JPEGs.

RX100 II resembles the RX100 almost exactly. One of the differences in design between the two is that the RX100 II has a larger screen and is thus bulkier. Yet, this camera has certainly improved in terms of build quality. Performance-wise, the RX100 II offers excellent performance.

All in all, the RX100 II is a great camera, and even when it is not expected to perform well, it does so. The autofocus system is one of these areas. Despite having a pretty basic contrast-detect AF system, it works better than most compact cameras, and it is faster than even most DSLRs.

 As with the RX100, the RX100 II can achieve AF in 0.13 seconds.  Low noise and good details are highlighted in the images captured by the RX100 II. Images captured at ISO 3200 are almost noise-free for a compact camera, which speaks volumes about how this camera performs.
