I'm looking at DSLR bodies, and I have only one real feature I'd really like to have -- 1080P video recording.
I'm looking at Nikons here for this example, but only for illustrative purposes -- I'm interested in answers covering other brands too. Nikon makes three cameras with the video feature. They are:
The only difference I can see between them is that the D3100 has a slightly lower res sensor, the D5100 has the strange fold out LCD, and the D7000 has two SD card slots. None of these differences are significant enough to make me spend more money, so I'd probably be going with the cheapest one.
If I spend more money on a camera body, what am I typically getting?
