Cameras, camcorders and accessories for Dad this Fathers' Day. Win a Canon T3 and more by entering our contest.

It’s no surprise that digital cameras are one of the most popular gifts for fathers. After all, this is the guy who took you on summer vacations (and documented you in all your awkward adolescent glory), and showed up to support you at various graduations and other milestones (with camera or camcorder in hand). If it’s time for Dad’s photography to get an upgrade, consider one of these options, organized from most affordable to biggest splurge (we’ve also considered a few excellent camera accessories).

Enter our contest for a chance to win a Canon T3 DSLR, along with an 8GB SD card with MicroSD/USB Adapter kit and a Belkin all-in-one card reader. The contest will run from Sunday June 12th at 9pm pacific, to Sunday June 19th at 9pm pacific (that’s Fathers’ Day). Should you win, we think it would be a nice gesture to hand over your prize to Pops, but we can’t force you to do so.

    So, if this is a review of cameras for a shutterbug photographer, why is your only mentioned Digital SLR the Canon T3... why not mention the Nikon D3100 or the Sony A390L (as they are within the same pricing)?

    Hi PhotoBug82,
    Lots of reasons. They're not as new, they're slightly more expensive. Also, as this article is sponsored by Newegg.com, its a guide to shopping at Newegg. Neither of the other two cameras you mentioned is currently in stock at Newegg. Thank you for asking--you'll always get an honest answer from us.
