Hi, been checking out canon eos 60d and nikon d5100. Is it advisable for me to start with this dlsr instead of more entry level type like 550d or 600d?

Hi, welcome to CS

I think a fairer comparison of 60D will probably by Nikon's D7000 instead..

imo, Sony and Pentax packs more features & stuffs in the camera as compared to entry level cameras offerings from Nikon and Canon. Models to for your consideration Sony SLT a35 & Pentax Kr.

Whether to go entry level or semi pro dslr, I'll leave it to the seniors to advice you...thou my heart will say go semi-pro, but wallet & brain tells me to get the entry level (cos there will be this fear if you will keep this hobby for long enough to justify the purchase).

Please read our stickies... there are one or two that actually tutor you on how to select a new camera. And please, please, please, don't limit yourself to Canon and Nikon only. There are other brands of cameras out there such as Olympus, Pentax, Panasonic, Sony and Ricoh. And all of them made excellent interchangeables len camera systems.

That is total bs. Don't know where you heard that from. Both Nikon and Canon are great with indoors and outdoors.

btw, you should be visiting the recommended list of shops for your purchase of the camera...Many of the shopkeepers from these list of shops are more knowledgeable on these stuffs.
