Those are some excellent pics Jeta. Thanks

I've bought quite a few Nikons in the past. Granted, they were junkers that I thought Mega Pixel was all the rating and understanding that I needed. Not so, eventhough that is how I've been pitched.
I don't like Ashton Kutcher, so I think the Canon is the way to go. Change of pace in brand and gear.

Looking forward to getting one tomorrow.

I think they are eagle eyes. Zoa names seem kind of meaningless though.

No, I went to Best Buy last night. I checked it out. I liked it so much after sleeping on it that I went to Walmart today to see if they had a better price. Both are going for $449.00. I talked to a friend of mine and, low and behold, he has one that he bought for $389. He said that he was considering getting the T4i. He thinks his wife might have gotten it for him for Christmas and he would sell me his T3 for $250 if I wanted it.

I'm going to see him on Wednesday and hopefully work out a deal to save a couple bucks and buy used. Seems like it makes sense and it's meant to be if it works out.

Patiently waiting...

You can't go wrong with the T3, I'd rather have my T3 over a Nikon any day (sorry Nikon guys, I'm a canon enthusiast).

Just snapped a few more for ya!!! Just to get you excited!

Everyone has an opinion. Nikon is better.

What a scammer! This sounds like something I'd do.

The debate between Canon and Nikon is almost as fierce as the debate between apple fans and android fans. Personally I think for entry level DSLRs (and entry level people operating the gear) either brand will provide you with good results if you spend some time reading about how to take pictures.

The best results will come from getting over the fear factor of shooting in full manual and setting up custom white balance since the auto white balance sensors get so confused by aquarium lighting.

For less than $1000 I get images comparable to folks with multi-thousand dollar setups. The entry level stuff is good. I can't see it ever being worth an additional $5k (or more) to make my images 3% better.

But then again if you would have told me years ago after setting up my first planted tank that I would be spending thousands on a reef tank I would have laughed. Funny thing about hobbies... And how they compel us to spend our money.

I just added more pics from the Canon T3 over here, if anyone is interested

I'm going to go ahead & disagree. Sure you can get good shots with entry level gear but Pro gear is there for a reason.

This mentality is why 75% of the wedding/portrait "photographers" charge $500 using entry level gear and always get disappointing results.

While entry level gear is ok for a hobbyist, there is far more than a 3% difference when you jump into semi pro or pro gear.
