Hello friends, I am going to buy a decent excellent DSLR canon and I am confused very much.I don't know what to buy and what can be the best combinations, like :
1>Canon 1100D or Canon 550D
2>Nikon D3100 or Nikon D5100
which 1 of them is best ? for enthusiast like me, I am not a pro but like to have skill like a pro.
3>Lens 18-55mm IS or higher
At first, I already decided to choose among 550D and D5100 because they are the leader in Entry level with excellent features and performance(ISO).But later on,reading too many online articles I was scattered.Some say 550D has a slower flash,catches the eyeblink(eyes-closed often) and D5100 has user unfriendly ergonomics , too much program for head bangings(lol) and a bit expensive also.
Later on, I thought why not buy a bit cheap dslr - Canon 1100D and add-up some gears like tripod,extra battery,macro or tele lens,etc..with saved amount.And again, I started to doubt , obviously the image quality (1100D) will be weaker than 550D or D5100/D3100..since its megapixel is less(12.2 mp) and lower movie setting(720i).Any suggestion will be helpful! Please use less technical words, I am from Asia and new to DSLR thing : )
