I think I'm going to ask H for a lovely camera for my 30th birthday as I can't think of anything else I want and have so much jewellery I hardly wear as it is! Anyone in the know about cameras- what should I look for as a first DSLR? I don't know where to start! Budget will be up to £500.

I got a Nikon D3100 for Christmas. My budget was as small as possible so we were basically comparing the entry level Canon (think it was called EOS 1100D) with the Nikon D3100. Everyone i spoke to said it was basically down to individual preference as there was so little between them. I went to a local shop and just picked them each up and straight away knew that the Nikon felt better in my hand, so that is the one I got. I have yet to figure out how to use it in anything other than auto but i am detrmined once I am not so ill i will.

We have just brought the Nikon d3200 which is a 24 megapixel camera. Not used it yet though but my brother is into his photography and he has a couple of Nikon cameras and helped me picked this one, we paid approx £400 for it

Thanks ladies. My photographer friend here said the same about holding a Nikon JB. I guess I need to go and play with a few and see what I think!

yep what JB says, the 2 she mentioned are very on par with each other, definatly go and have a feel and see what feels better to you. When I bought mine the canon felt better so went with that.
