post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Title says it all. I will be using it for mostly photo's and on the occasion a video. Whats the better overall camera? I'm new, but I've narrowed it down to thsee but i am still open for options if you guys have another camera that could be better for me. Thank you!

They are pretty much equivalent cameras and both good cameras.
The Nikon is slightly newer, but they both still use the same sensor as their predecessors. Giving the same picture quality.

It comes down to your price range for what camera model in any given brand that you purchase and if this is a hobby or passion.
The most important part of any dslr is the quality of the lens rather than the camera body (for the most part).

You should read this before making any decisions: http://www.overclock.net/t/898709/for-new-dslr-users-a-beginners-guide

Read this and it will allow you to have an informed decision, or at least be able to ask exact questions that you can receive a detailed answer to.

As micro said both are great cameras so there isnt really a bad choice. Most will suggest to go with the brand your friends shoot. If you dont have friends with dslrs then buy the camera that fits best in your hands. Both brands have different layouts, menu, and ergonomics.
