I am in the market for an entry-level DSLR camera. After discussing with some colleagues in work, I am going for the Canon 100d or Nikon D3300. Speaking as someone totally new to photograpy (I use my iPhone 5S camera and the Panasonic TZ30!), I found my colleagues debating Canon vs Nikon rather amusing. But, leaving that stuff aside, which one would you buy and why? I plan on travelling more and more over the coming years prior to "settling down" and thus want to improve my overall "picture-taking ability". My budget is £500 and, luckily, these come in at less than £400. Canon 100d is £389 on Amazon. It comes with the EF-S 18-55mm III Lens. Nikon D3300 is £399 on Amazon. It comes with the 18-55mm VR II Lens. I plan on playing with them both this weekend so I imagine the decision will come down to "how it feels". Either way, it would be good to get a variety of opinions. NB. I would rather replies focused on the two options above but if you feel that there is a blindingly better camera for £500 or less, feel free to throw it into the mix.
