For those who are looking for DSLR camera and need a review of Nikon and Canon, I recommend to browse the pages of Speed, the Shutterbug Issue last July 2011. This will help a lot for those who cannot decide on what unit to buy. I was actually referring also to myself who went to the store to buy SLR and ended up home with Olympus 800Uz which I have been using for more than a year now. It costs me around 24K last year, and the main reasons for buying the unit were the features and the price. It’s not about the unit but an impulse buying worked on me again.
So what and why did I end up with this semi-pro? The advanced features enticed me, and because I wasn’t sure on what to buy, I grabbed the unit at once without even thinking on what I have been eyeing for a long time. My desire to get a DSLR was set aside because I was also thinking of a new and advanced unit by which my budget doesn’t fit anymore.
Canon 550D worth around 42k
600D around 49k with 18-55mm kits lens instead.
Read more reviews for a smart choice so as not be deceived with features and some freebies that are not necessarily needed. Nikon D5100 is also better which costs 42k with 18-55mm kit lens. The features are almost the same with Canon 600D.
