    The thing that drew me into the Nikon D3100 was the fact that a lot of people I know who make (equine)youtube videos use it and the quality is amazing! They use it with a Nikkor 70-300mm and the standard kit lens. It is also a good price too. What would be the difference between a 70-200 and a 70-300?
    Initially I was looking at a Canon 450D but it doesn't video:(

    If you are primarily going to be shooting video, you may be better off with a camcorder rather than a DSLR (especially on a limited budget) - autofocus in video mode is still a new feature for DSLRs, and older ones may not even have it at all.

    I will primarily be shooting photographs but will also be using it on a regular basis for videos.

    Hey! I dabble in photography and I own the canon 1100d (rebel t3). Between your choices I would definitley pick the 500d. The d3100 is a lower end camera compared to the 500d, and after knowing two people with these cameras, I find the image quality better on the 500d. Lens wise, I would suggest the nikon HOWEVER you can get a nifty 55-250mm for around 110 (not sure in dollars) with image stabalization should you want to upgrade. Nikon is also known for its very confusing menus, and canon do have better spread out interfaces so its easier for beginners. I personally think the 500d will last you longer and will grow with your abilities
    I would recommend trying them out in the store as a deciding factor will be the feel of it in your hand. Hope I helped! :/ (p.s. Check out the 550d too, more expensive but I think it's worth it))

    One of my shots...... (kit lens + photoshop, that's it!!)

    And another, also with kit lens (was on 55mm and the rider was galloping quite close, but still!!)
