I will be starting a photography program at my university and I need a new camera. I am very unsure about which ones to get/ look at. Price isn't really an issue seeing as though the gov't is picking up the tab on this one. I would like one that I could use to shoot aviation shows, architecture, nature and maybe street/ portrait photography. I know it is a broad base of subjects but I am just beginning and these are what appeal to me the most right now. I will most likely swing either way in regards to Nikon or canon, never had any experience shooting a DSLR. I would appreciate any advice that you may have for me.
