    Default 550d VS D5100 VS A55 ( live view - low light - easy of use )

    hi there

    i'm totally new both here or using the dSLRs
    i'm moving from using point and shoot cuz of the totally unacceptable low light shots.. lacking the image stablizing.. and usable high ISO photos

    also i like shooting alot.. so i think i will make use of the new camera

    so.. i knw the selected camera has so similar options and abilties.. weak/strong points

    so that i hope u tell me the best for my uses and requriements

    holiday - outings - indoors - lowlight photos
    80% for handheld group/single full body pics in the outings with some backgrounds without flash ( 50% of them in low light )

    what i care for:
    FULL TIME live view - good image stabilizing - high ISO performance - easy of use - some auto smart modes - sharp pics

    what i DONT care for:
    view finder - anything else

    usually i dont do crops at all.. so dont care alot about zooming the the pics or cropping it.. ( i mean i hope the pics dont have appearing noise while i'm not zooming the pic.. )

    with my budget i will only use the kit lens and maybe after 6 months or more i will get a 50 mm 1.8 lens

    thnx alot and waiting ur opinions

    Hi looking at what you have said I would look at a 4/3 type camera which has electronic or lcd view, but still has interchangeable lenses.

    dslr new beginner

    well if you get the 550D you would be buying a good DSLR cant speak for the other 2 models
    as im a Canon user but you would have a good cam to do the things what you have said above and all so what wave said about other makes of cams
    one thing you will need is a better lens kit lens are not going to be as sharp as you might think so
    all so get a good tripod you will need that in low light
    as people on this forum will tell you it takes a bit to build up lens for your DSLR unlesss your a lotto winner lol

    all the best
