Actually, the baby blue interior is my favorite part about the bag, because it's way more discreet than the yellow interior of my Kata. I'll probably sell this one and buy a black one.

GT, hit me with a D4 and D800. Came last Friday via NPS/Calumet and I'm just now charging the batteries. I think my D3 is gonna be up 4 sale. 30k clicks, spotless LNIB.

First time buyer here, looking for some wise words from some photographers and camera enthusiasts.

So, it will be My first dslr and I'm torn between choosing either the Nikon D3100 or the Canon 600D/550D/500D.

Instead off typing up mind numbing babble i'll just lay my pro's and con's on the table.

Canon

PRO
  • Tilt out LCD screen
  • The video capabilities are far better than the D3100
  • I have a friend with a 5D, lens sharing (maybe)
CON
  • PRICE!!

Nikon

PRO
  • PRICE!! (It's perfect for my budget)
  • Seems to take a good picture with the kit lens
CON
  • No lens sharing
  • Lacks in build quality compared to the Canon

I personally would be much more happier with a 600D/550D than the D3100, however the Canon is quite a LOT out of my budget and i'd have to wait a while longer before i could even get one. The biggest worry is the lacking build quality of the D3100.

If some of you guys could help me out a little, id very much appreciate it. I don't want to buy a camera and regret it and wish id got the other.

^500D has the ML custom firmware on it, so alot of features if you know what you're doing. (even has bulb ramping for timelapses!)

Are those features i would use as an entry level dslr user?
post #20298 of 29551
haha, 12 out of 19 of the 'F/S (sorted by most recent) threads on POTN are 5D Mark IIs.. lowest price I see without clicking on any of the links appears to be $1595. Well, herp my derp. Looks like a compromised account. User name cuongducnguyen, posted the same reply in 15x 5D Mark II threads, then posted 'Wow, nice one!' in like 11 different random threads. Avoid or potentially lose your hard earned $$$.

Also, I might have a line on a 300 f/4L IS for $600...

thats a solid deal bernie buy that 300 f4 and give it to me and ill test it out for you to make sure it works properly. generally tests take from about 1 year to 10 years but i promise its worth it to let me hold on to it to ensure you got a good deal thumb.gif

The Canon bodies you listed are a step above the D3100. A fair comparison would be the Canon T3/1100D. Those are both the entry level offerings from Canon and Nikon.
