Re: Nikon VS Canon? SLR or Point and Shoot?
In reply to Heaven is for real, Mar 13, 2014

I want to learn how to use my SLR....that is why I am asking for advice when I take shots......i like the touch screen of the Canon T5i and my biggest hardship is trying to get everything in focus with group shots instead of blurry backgrounds......that I do not like......still can't figure that out, even in auto mode??

Hello again....I'm still debating whether or not I am going to keep my Canon T5i or return it for a really good point and shoot. A friend of mine owns the Nikon L820 and her pics are amazing with a 30x optical zoom!!!

Does anyone own a Nikon point and shoot or recommend one that also offers high def video?

Please advise

Neither, get HX300 50x zoom


Why one should do that?

I mean well, If you know why, go for it, but this is not the case here. T5i is far superior cam minus zoom to all of these. I´d trade zoom for quality everytime in my price range. There is good reason for it, and there can be good reason against it. You just should know (especially OP should) WHY you do all this and what do you really need, what gear can get you there.

Why does he do it?

She is after the optical zoom and fixed lens....actually my recommendation is off since she prefer P&S so she wants a compact camera.

T5i is old news. Mirrorless is the future...
