    Here are some of the common ones...

    TS... buy your camera first, and then we'll talk later.

    your question is too broad as we have many brands of DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras in the market. Sony, Nikon, Pentex, Fuji, Panasonic, Olympus and lastly Canon (and also other obscure and expensive brands)

    I was choosing between a Nikon D5100 SLR and a Canon 600D which i have read is good for starters?

    The biggest advantage is Control.

    You have full control over all the exposure parameters.

    You have full control over the focal lengths used.

    You have full control over what lenses to use.

    You have full control on what to focus on.

    But when you have full control, you also need the skill to know how to control the camera, to achieve the vision you want to achiever. So if you do not have any sense of composition, or no vision of what you want to produce, or if you do not have the skills to execute the shot you want to produce, your result will not be very desirable.

    Both are good cameras. The final decision will lie on you, which you prefer after you have hands on each camera.

    To be honest whatever we say here is useless unless you buy the camera and actually experience for yourself all these things.

    Both are great cameras. Best is to go to a shop and ask them to let you fiddle with both, then see which camera you like better. Things to look out for include how bright the viewfinder is, viewfinder coverage, how it feels in your hands, the weight with the kit lens (which is the lens you are likeliest to use at the start). Forget the freebies they are usually rubbish. Slow SD cards, wobbly tripods, tiny bags, etc.

    Also shop around; prices vary quite a bit. Big chains like Harvey Normans usually very expensive.

    the most distinctive is the ISO...

    DSLR ISO is cleaner then compact cameras although nowadays these compact cameras are catching up.

    but if u compare a few years back... the ISO from entry level DSLR Canon 450D wins any compact cameras from that era hands down.

    We are once newbies as well, not that we are cruel to fool around with you but you are asking to be spoon fed here. Maybe you can search in the forum or at least google what is aperature, shutter speed etc.

    No offence, but we are not really paid here, cheers.

    It's not.

    Sure you have more control, better quality images etc etc but at end of the day, if you don't work on or can't be bothered with the basics, the results wont be much different.
