Jay is looking for an entry level DSLR. Should he get the Canon T5i, the Canon SL1 or the Nikon D3300? Leo says that they are comparable as good entry level DSLRs. The key here is the glass, not so much the body. He's really buying a system, more than just a camera. He will always upgrade the body and keep the lenses.
Cody wants to get into digital photography and video, and wants a camera for around $500. Leo says that his mobile phone can shoot 1080p video now. A DSLR with a kit lens is going to be pricey, although Leo says that for that price, the Nikon D3300 may be his best bet. With a Nikon kit lens, he'd at least have a nice basic 18-55mm lens. A good starter lens. If he buys it at B&H, he can also get a memory card included. Leo also recommends spending time at DPReview.com and read the reviews.
