Hi Please help me

What's your budget?
Rs. 40k


Camera type? DSLR
DSLR or MILC or Point and Shoot

Body Style? Compact
Compact or Bridge (bulky)

How much zoom do you want/expect?

Do you care for manual exposure controls? Yes

What's the purpose? Hobby

Hobby/Home use...

What will you be shooting with this camera? not action/ sports. Anything I like, mostly landscape, portraits, nature.

Indoors/low light/action/sports

Do you have any particular model(s) in your mind?Yes
NIKON D5300 and Canon 700d.

Any brand preference? Like/dislike
I like NIKON

From where will you be buying? Local

Online/Local store

Any specific features you need? better low light performance

Anything else you would like to tell us?


Please help me. I am in great confusion between these two models.
Canon 700d is attracting me because of its touch screen.
Nikon, I basically like the brand, maybe i am biased as I was using DSLR
camera D50 a couple of years ago (borrowed for 6 months). and Its sensor
quality.

Get a D5200 with a prime lens(35mm). Except 1-2 extra features with d5300 you wont get anything else. Both will give same picture quality and DSLR is all about lenses.

Look online for great deals.

Since Indoor and low light are an important requirement and you are also open to compacts, do keep the Fujifilm X series in consideration
The damn thing has made me leave my DSLR body and lenses gathering dust

PS: The 5300 has an upgraded sensor over the 5200 (it does away with the low-pass filter) thus yielding marginally better low light perf

DSLR and compact won't go together. If you want DSLR, you got to live with the bulkiness. If you emphasis more on size and weight, better look at mirrorless cameras.

D5300 - Better low light performance, better IQ, 60fps FHD video, GPS, WiFi, better battery life...
700D - Cheaper, touch screen, magic lantern, built in flash commander...

For casual/home use IQ and low light performance of D5300 is not that massive difference over 700D.

Weigh your priorities and do a bit of research before buying.

For a casual (and even some pro) users, the lines between DSLR /CSC/Mirrorless are quite blurred
Hell, you even get full frame P&S camera these days
