Beginners' question: Canon T1i vs Nikon D3100 - Page 2

I looked up how to do that mod and I think I may do it to my t1i, after a long bit of planning though. I would think the extra price would be worth it for the features and not having to go through all of that trouble and risk.

the "jello" effect is actually a rolling shutter effect that is apparent on all cmos sensors. i believe the "DSLR" with the lease amount of rolling shutter is the panasonic GH1 and GH2. so if you are worried about it that would be the camera to get.

with that said, the nikon is probably better then the t1i. i dont know the specs for the nikon but as many have said already the t1i does not mic in, cannot shoot at more then 20fps at 1080 and there are no aperture controls for video. i believe the nikon d3100 is limited to 24fps on 1080p but that seems to be the norm for most indie film makers.

Take this one step further --

Grab an out of warranty Canon P&S camera, call the number in this thread and use the Canon Loyalty program. Get a refurb for ~20% off of Canon'sr listed refurb prices - Thus, the T2i kit with lens should run you ~$512 + tax refurbed. Most reports of the refurbs are that they look pretty much brand new and usually have exceedingly low shutter counts (i've heard in the range of the teens / under 20 snaps to up to the area of 1200 shutter activations). They come with all the accessories except the original box (shipped in a plain white box).

But yeah, I'm biased towards the T2i personally. I love my T1i - gripped, it feels like just the right size in my hands. Again though, as Gone mentioned, it's pretty much preference.

My refurb 50D arrived with a shutter count of 18. For reference. It looks brand new in every single aspect -- very pleased.
