I'm torn between two drastically different cameras at two drastically different price points. The Nikon Cool pix point and shoot. The Nikon D3300 I'm a noob at photography, but love it. I want to learn more about cameras and and methods of photography in general (my best friend's an art major and can teach me things) and turn it into a serious hobby. So the DSLR seems overkill at $499, but I'm worried that I'll be underwhelmed with the $199 point-and-shoot. I really didn't want to spend over $200, but I want this to be a good investment. Currently I'm an iPhone only user, but honestly I'm disappointed with the iPhone 6's camera and just want something with less grain in low lights (I know grain is inevitable) and just better, sharper photos than an iPhone can provide. Can some of the photography savvy users help me? Do you think the cheaper P&S is worth it as an upgrade to the iPhone or do you think I should go all out with the DSLR? Do you have any suggestions on better DSLR? I can't (won't) spend more than $499. I appreciate it.
