I'm looking for a camera to take some pics of my car and stuff but I'm not trying to spend over a rack on a camera... Anyone know any good cameras that are fairly inexpensive?

The iPhone 7 Plus camera is pretty good but it doesn't come close to what is considered a "professional camera".

As ZL1 asked, what's your budget? There will be cameras in all price ranges and with different specs to it. In my house, there's a Nikon D-series camera which I've messed around with a few times to get great shots of my car. Don't recall exactly which D-series Nikon it is but it cost $500.

Have in mind that when I took these pictures (the only two I could find from when I photographed my car) I had absolutely no idea to which specifications the lens was set to take these. I'm not an expert in photography and I'm sure I could have done a better job at taking these pictures but to me, they look pretty damn cool. I'll let you know tomorrow which Nikon D-Series it is, if you're interested in knowing.

I'm sure a simple canon or Nikon would do me some good, I just need to know a good model

If that's the case, I'll make sure to see if I can find it and PM you which model of the D-series it is. It's a great and manageable camera once you get used to it, think I got it off eBay at that time.

Canon Rebel T6? I believe it is going in the $600 range. Pretty good camera as well.
