Best DSLR for $550?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a DSLR that is no more than $550. This will be my starter. I don't really mind refurbished but I really prefer brand new. I am currently deciding between Nikon d3100 and Canon EOS Rebel T3.

CLP Info

Basically, you get a broken Canon P&S (Can be found on Ebay and such for ~$15), call up Canon on their number, and place an order for a refurb DSLR. Once the camera is shipped to you, you have 14 days to send your broken P&S in (so you don't have to wait for Canon to receive your point and shoot first to get your DSLR).

The T2i with 18-55mm IS is, in my opinion, the best deal from CLP (barring the 5D Mk II which is way more expensive and almost always out of stock anyways). It has the same image sensor as the T3i/60D/7D, and is a very excellent beginner's camera for a great price.

I will look into that.
Edit: Seems like I will be getting the T2i.
