Hi bros, I am new here. It is nice to find a reliable community for photographers. IT show is coming and I am considering to buy a DSLR cam, thus I would need masters' advices here.
I have been using pocket cam (Canon Digital Ixus 90 IS) + Photoshop all the time. I used photoshop to edit the contrast, level, vintedge, B/W, washed color, etc. Now I would like to buy a DSLR that will help me reduce the amount of time utilized for retouching photo.
I have been seeing a review for Nikon D3100 and Canon EOS 550D. It seems that both are almost the same in terms of quality but Canon is ahead in term of price. I also read that Nikon D3100 is similar to Nikon D5000 except for the HD movie recording feature. I also heard that Canon is food for skin tone while Nikon is good for outdoor.
I will use it for outdoor photography but with people as the object. My budget is around SGD 1000 - 1500.
Any recommendation and reason for me? I have used my company's Canon EOS 500D wide lens camera, but I could not find any feature to add effect to the photo.
Thank you for your help bros.
