Canon EOS Rebel T4i
This is another touch screen camera – and with the new 3-inch LCD touch screen, you can probably abandon most of the buttons. When recording video, it has a continuous autofocus system which will make focusing much easier. In terms of image quality, T4i does a pretty good job, although at high ISO sensitivities it’s not that great as T3i. The camera also has an improved shooting design than its predecessors. Overall, it makes a great choice for amateurs who are looking for quasi-professional image quality in a tiny body.
Nikon D5100 (with 18-55mm VR lens)
Although it is not the best in any individual aspect, the Nikon D5100 delivers a solid combination of image quality, performance and design. The high-resolution 16.2MP DX format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 2 image processing engine guarantee its image quality. The full HD capability also ensures the exceptional D-Movie performance. Moreover, you can get it with less than $1,000.
