Canon 550d or if u can wait the new 600d for swirvel.
nikon get d3100 or d7000 depending on your budget.
Sony u have to ask other bros here.
Use gears your best friends use so u can borrow or share lens during photo trips.
As a general purpose compact that delivers DSLR-like quality that's light enough for camwhoring, the NEX-5 with a 16mm f2.8 lens should be a pretty viable option.
Nikon // Hasselblad // Mamiya // Fujifilm // Sony
And getting gears from your friends? Everyone always says that's a good reason, but in reality, very few people will lend you their precious gear.
For a Canon vs Nikon comparison, you don't have to compare lens lineup and image quality etc, there's quite little difference in those. You'll want to take note of:
-Camera interface: do you prefer Canon's way of changing settings, or Nikon's?
-Camera grip: this one depends on camera body, try to see if it feels comfortable in your hands. If you have the budget, a 60D or D7000 level body would be good, as in a normal shooting position, the D3100/600D level will leave your pinky under the camera, which is very uncomfortable

If one is accustomed to using the LCD display when composing, might as well do away with the VF (electronic or otherwise) altogether
An EVIL kinda fits the bill. Coupled with a pancake lens (eg. 20/1.7), it is:
- (some say) stylish
- able to capture images of a higher quality compared with PnS cameras
- fits the needs of the family event photog who probably doesn't require fast AF nor rapid burst shooting
I'm not so sure man... If I would spend the $ on a Sony nex, I think I would rather save a lil more for the canon ones.
I didn't see the specs for the rest of the cams. So they do not have image stabilizer in the end. Okay notedOriginally Posted by Octarine
OH BY THE WAY, I wouldn't have asked for help if I knew everything
Just in case u didn't quite get that ^^
Thanks think I'm gonna go check those, that u mentioned, out in the stores.Originally Posted by kei1309
If you want to do the whole self portrait thing, light and image stabilization is pretty much a must. Most likely a sony or pentax for the lower cost.
Think i remember seeing a white pentax k-x in the B&S? Just don't get sucked into the whole limited lenses thing. Will get expensive, fast.
Without built-in image stabilizer, will the pictures be of much difference as compared to one that has it? I mean, considering that I'm not photographing any moving objectsOriginally Posted by kei1309
What other important features do the sony ones have in comparison with canon ones then??Originally Posted by Rashkae
