I started this thread to get advice from experts on which entry-level DSLR should I get for myself. I am looking at Nikon D3100 and Canon 1100D at the moment because they are quite cheap nowadays in the market. I even saw these two models been sold at Challenger at low prices but I think those prices are for members only. Furthermore, I heard from a forumer in HWZ Forum that TK Photo is selling Nikon D5100 at $799.
Anyway, I only use a camera for overseas holidays and some outdoor activities. I am not considered as a heavy user in a sense. But I still prefer high-quality photos after using my Kodak digital camera for 4 years and 6 months. I am not pleased with the photo quality of a point-and-shoot camera anymore.
Another thing! One of my friends is using a Canon 1000D but he never bought a dry box or dry cabinet. He just stashed it in a makeshift box and put it in his wardrobe. He kept there for 2 years and recently used it for a trip to Japan. He said it is working fine and no problem with the camera. Wow...
So which DSLR should I get since I am still a newbie to this photography hobby? Thanks in advance.
