Hey guys

I'm a newbie and would like to buy an enrty level DSLR. I've been reading reviews and these two cameras keep cropping up. Which is the better camera between the Canon 1000D and the Nikon D3100. The Nikon is within my price range as I believe its slightly more expensive than the Canon. I'm going to be taking photos of mainly landscapes. I would also like to capture some images at dusk so a camera that takes good pictures in the dark would be a bonus. Any tips would be appreciated.
