Bros in CS, as i am travelling this Aug and I would really want to have a DSLR to capture the moments/memories during the trip with my GF.Some backgrd to share, have been frustrated by our very low-tier digital camera, and would not want to miss any night shots or moments(shots in low lighting) anymore due to incapabilities of the device shots (very low end normal digital cam).
I am a newbie and is interested in photography thus would like to invest in a good DSLR with budget around 1k. I have 2 brands/model in mind - Canon EOS 550D and Nikon D3100, more liking to Canon, due to their exposure in ads, but also understand Nikon is a long time fav among photography fanatics.
Have compare the specs betwen this 2, which EOS 550D will be little more superior. however had also hear reviews that D3100 is a good DSLR for entry level which is easy to use.
Hope that Experts/Experienced/Old Birds can help to guide me along the way to my purchase!!
Some qns in my mind:
1. Canon EOS 550D vs Nikon D3100, which one suits a newbie like me?
2.What are also the necessary accessories, that i have to get along with it - eg: items for maintenance like cleaning kit,dry box? Is there a "standard" bundled of items that will come with the package?
3. Any considerations/information I have to look up? Lenses?
4.Travelling in Aug, intend to buy the cam in may or June and spend 1 - 2 mths getting use and experiment the cam 1st.Any good books/website to intro?
Thanks to all bros in advance! Cheers and thanks for helping!
