Nikon D3100 or Canon EOS 500D
I'm trying to choose between these two cameras:
This is going to be my first DSLR, so I want something that isn't too expensive, but has sufficient features for me to be able to progress in my photography.
I don't really have any preference of brand, and although I can see the HD video being a benefit, i've heard it's not that great so I wouldn't make a choice between them solely on it. I can see some slight variation between the two cameras, like how recently they came out, a slight difference in price, megapixles, frames per second, etc, but I was hoping someone could give me their expert opinion, or tell me about their experiences with one of the cameras!
