Which DSLR for a REAL beginner?
Dec 7, 2012

Hi everyone! I know, all of you must be tired of reading and answering to these questions about which entry level DSLR camera is better, but I would really appreciate your advice.

I have never owned a DSLR camera, but I am looking to buy my first one. I have only owned P&S cameras such as the Fuji HS10 and the Sony HX100V but I am looking for a camera with a much better image quality, that's why I am deciding to move to the DSRL world, despite I would have to say goodbye to the ultrazoom that some P&S cameras offer haha.

I have been looking around on the web for specs, reviews and many more of different beginners DRSL cameras, such as the Canon T2i/T3i and the Nikon D3200, but I am just not sure which would be the best for me.

I don't need very sophisticated features. My main purpose is to get a camera with a really good image quality, with good details even when I crop the pictures I take with it. Is there such a thing in the market nowadays? Hehe

The camera would be used mainly for landscape pictures, portraits and spotting (taking pictures of airplanes in airports)...

Which entry-level DSRL would you recommend me? My budget is in the range of $500, I hope is not very tight.

Please treat me like the most amateur/newbie person you have ever seen in these topics hehe, I only know the basics of DSRL photography.

Thank you very much in advance for any of you comments and recomendations.

Kind regards
