I'm currently looking to buy a new SLR camera, I've been doing some research on the internet a loved the reviews and price of the Nikon D3100. However after reading a fair few more reviews I noticed people started suggesting to spend a little bit more and get the Nikon D5100.
I know very little on cameras and what all the gadgets mean i.e shutter speed , ISO, etc. I'm now thinking of stretching that little bit further and getting the D5100 as its reviews appear to be slightly better. I will be using my new camera mainly to take pictures of my kids in the garden, in the house and holidays snaps twice a year etc,
- Which camera would be better for this purpose
- Which is better indoors for Christmas etc.
- If I use the auto setting on the camera would I be wasting my time and would a normal digital camera give me the same picture quality?
My real aim is to have clear nice pics of the kids an for our holidays.
