Hi all! I'm finally getting a SLR for myself. However, I don't know which model to get.
I've been eying Nikon D3000 from the start. But when I got to the MS Colour shop, the man introduced me to Sony. If I'm not wrong the model was Sony ALPHA DSLR-A300.
The price specs of both models at the store: Both kits cost $899, but the man quoted my mom a price of 880bucks for the Sony one. The functions are similar, except for the fact that the Sony model has a flip-out LCD screen with Live View, which comes in handy for me since I LOVE taking macro shots.
Then again, he IS a Sony SLR user. Not surprised if he made me get all hyped up myself about Sony.
