Choosing A Dslr Camera?

Postby Merrill » Mon Sep 04, 2017 6:28 am

hay so i have finally made my mind up after days of searching for a camera, i was going to get a bridge camera but for a extra few £ i could afford a DSLR camera, so what one would be best value? keep in mind that:

+ i want one which does not take normal batteries (AA,AAA batts) as i have heard that alot of cameras in general are herd on batteries.

+ That i will be using it at night time ( concerts etc)

+ and that i will be using it for family pictures ( so in other words, kids moving fast!!!)

so heres the options:

#1 http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/nikon-d3100-digital-slr-camera-with-18-55mm-zoom-lens-07685659-pdt.html

#3 http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/nikon-d3100-digital-slr-camera-08518951-pdt.html

#4 http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/canon-eos-1100d-digital-slr-camera-09819613-pdt.html

What concerts? In lots of places they won't let you in with a DSLR.
Will you be taking photos or video or both? How far from the action are you likely to be?

The D3100 is better than the Canon 1100D in a number of areas, see link.

What you will need to consider is the field of view you're likely to want.
With the 18-55 lens will be ok for wide angle views, but not necessarily enough if you want to zoom in on things, and so you'll need another lens....
this is where the costs start to build when you get into DSLRs.

Also, these cameras are marginally cheaper on Amazon.

WOW I had no idea Canon produced a DSLR that price. Even when converted to USA dollars the camera is well priced! I didn't check the others as it no doubt depends on YOU and how you like handling the camera and sighting through it. I would however skip the Sony product.

Nikon D3100 in case you very tight on budget. You woudnt remorseful about. it has each and every little thing that you require. nevertheless images to HD Video. different selection is D5100. it truly is bit extreme priced than D3100. yet its image high quality is as sturdy as extreme priced D7000. and the sensor of this digicam is strictly similar as D7000.

Currys are desparate to clear some stock I think! Get in there quick before they all sell!!!

The price for #1 and #2 is a bargain! Even without the cashback that I just noticed.

BEWARE #3 and #4 are body only - a lens will cost you extra - and yes! you do need one!

#5 with the £50 cash back offer is also a real bargain.

In order of preference #2, #5, #1 - (ignore #3 and #4 as they don't include a lens)

No DSLR's use AA batteries unless you buy a supplementary battery grip.
Because they are not running power hungry zoom motors the battery in a DSLR will last a loooooong time.

My 450D is very similar to the 1100D and a battery lasts for 500+ shots.

Stop twiddling your thumbs and grab a bargain cos at that price they ain't gonna last long!
