Canon EOS Rebel 2Ti (550D) vs. Nikon D5100
Oct 12, 2012


My daughter wants, as a gift for her birthday, an entry-level DSLR camera. She had one point and shoot camera until now.

She's very decided for a Nikon D3100 (one of her friends has one so... that's the story).

However, since I checked a little the various digital photography forums and reviews, I thought to buy something a little bit better.

Now, I read a lot about these 2 cameras: 550D and D5100. As far as I seen they are very close in terms of image quality, ease of use, lenses, etc.

I was not able to take a decision and this is why I ask for your help: which out of these 2 will be better for a beginner and for the next 2-3 years of photography? (the price is almost the same in the standard configuration - body and 18-55 lenses).

THX a lot
