An awesome product! Let's compare it closest Canon competitor, 550D!

I've used both products, and also own D5100, so I guess the review will be useful for many!

Why you should go for Canon 550D?
1. Well well, street price is lower, you can actually buy some low end camera with that difference..
2. Built-in focus motor.. This is most important reason why you should go for 550D than D5100. It will save your hell lot of money on your further lens purchases.. You will not need to go for lenses with built-in auto-focus motor, which are much more costly.
3. More me...

Beginner's Gun Smells like a Cannon.

I'm not a professional Camera person, just a click-mate. Purchasing your first DSLR camera can be a hectic exercise to your fingers and eyes & Yes ! more amount of internet data usage. Reviewing lots of videos on You tube, lots of links for different comparisons between Nikon and Canon needs to be done.

Nikon and Canon are more like the opposite faces of a sword, Similarly Sharp & Shiny. Go for whatever you want. Don't take a brand for granted, nothing is perfect though.

Nikon D5100 vs Canon EOS 600D

I bought this camera a few weeks ago and am still learning to use all its features. Even though it is too early for me to write a review, I would like to point out certain things which led me to chose the D5100 over the Canon EOS 600D. My friend has a 600D, So I have used both these cameras. I am a Canon fan. So it was not easy for me to chose Nikon over Canon. This is an excellent camera.
This is my first ever DSLR. I basically love to take pictures and videos. I have a bridge camera which ...

A Prism of Colours

Nikon's D5100 exceeds expectations, performance by the brilliant CMOS sensor found on the larger and more expensive D7000, the Nikon D5100 is the ideal DSLR for those who are serious about quality pictures and plan on using the camera long term at an affordable budget.
The Nikon D5100 takes low light photography to a level that competing DSLR'S desperately try to reach. Full HD 1080p recording and full time auto focus, with the option of an external mic input, the D5100 might very well replac...
