For my photography, I use a Canon EOS 1300D, a DSLR camera. I use Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC for editing and storing photos. Before I got my Canon EOS camera, I used a Nikon Coolpix A10, which I highly recommend for beginners to work their way up from.
For most pictures, I use the Canon EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5 - 5 - 5.6 III lens. (This lens came with my camera.) For the telephoto lens, I use the Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG Macro lens. (So whenever I mention a telephoto lens, I mean this one.)
