The control over depth of field always makes me drool. Try re-taking a similar one with your dog, but with the eyes in focus.

I was hoping to get out today, since I had nothing planned, but it's stormy out.  here's some pictures that I snapped yesterday at my birthday cookout.







The last one is probably horrible in the eyes of a real photographer, but for some reason i think it's fun that just the tip of his nose is in focus.

Envy, congrats man. Now get out with it, be comfortable with it so it's second nature by the time you REALLY want to capture the important memories. Go on some photo walks.

First off, we will definitely be bringing a p&s in addition to the dslr on the honeymoon.  I'm not going to want to hang out all day on the sand with an expensive camera. 

That being said, I bought myself a birthday present.

I'd love to get a new lens because all I have now is the stock 18-55mm. That said, they're really expensive.

I have a D5100 and love it. Takes pretty good video too. AMA

Heres a photo I've taken with it, but I think I was using a 24-70mm lense.

This.

I'm a Nikon fanboy, but only because I prefer their interface over Canon's. I really only do still frame photography, so I can't comment on the video capabilities of either. As far as picking which one you want, read a few reviews online and like Whale said, go hold them in your hand at the store; see which feels better to you.

Yep. 

I much prefer Canon's user interface, but I think Nikons feel better in the hand. If I'm going to be shooting for a long period of time, I'll use my girlfriend's Nikon D60. If I'm doing short sessions that will require more quick switching between modes and such (Like shooting a baseball game) I'll use mine, as I'm much better with Canon's UI. 

But yeah, there is almost no difference between the two other than those two aspects -- and those are subjective aspects. 

Nikon used to have the advantage because of their historical catalog of lenses that are still compatible, but Canon's EOS has been around for so long now, there is almost nothing Nikon has available that Canon doesn't have something comparable in price, lens-wise.

Facebook chat me if you ever have questions about that kind of stuff. I'm no Keith Saylor, but I've had stuff published. 

Like I said, for photography (The backbone of owning a DSLR), the difference in photo quality is negligible. The stats between the Canon T3i and the Nikon D5100 are almost identical. Anything past 12 megapixles doesn't matter if you're not shooting for a billboard. The ISO levels are almost identical. The kit lenses are comparable. 

Go to some place that will let you turn the things on and see which one seems more user-friendly to you. See which one feels more comfy in your hands. Pick the one that meets those two qualifications. 

You're better off with a camera you'll enjoy using and toting around.
