Canon T3 vs Nikon D3100 - Our Analysis
There's a good comparison between the two, they were the same price a few weeks back at walmart but I don't know if the nikons are still on sale. If the canons are $100+ cheaper then I'd go that route for sure if cost is the biggest factor.
I haven't shot video with ours yet but will be soon. I don't have an epic reef tank like Forts but here's a couple of photos of plants and a bird. I've yet to start fiddling with the settings.
This is with the 18-55mm stock kit lens.
