Other than what Bassat said, I don't understand the low end DSLRs camera space at all. There are too many choices and it ends up confusing the consumer.
Hell, maybe that's the goal. Most have no clue anyway, just offer something in their price range and they will keep buying without forethought.
Keep in mind that MANY of the people buying these cameras don't even understand specs. . I have 5 friends that I can think of off the top of my head that have bought DSLRs within the past year and a half. . Four of them talked with me about their purchases after they made them. . The fifth talked with me before purchasing, to ask for my advice.
When having the conversations with these people about their new DSLR, it became immediately evident that none of them knew anything about cameras or specs. . They don't compare one model with another. . They don't do any online research about the camera they are about to buy. . They just see something for sale, think it'll "be a good camera" because it's a DSLR, see that they can afford it, and buy it. . Heck, they don't even compare one retailer's prices with another retailer's prices. . It really is that simple for them.
The one friend that did ask me for advice simply said, "Tom, I'm going to buy this camera - is that a good one to get?" . . And they included a link to the camera they were about to buy. . When I called them to discuss it, and started to explain the differences in specs, compared to comparable DSLRs, they said, "Oh, I just want to know if it's a good camera - I don't understand all that other stuff. I just know if you say it's a good camera, then it'll be good for me." . They had no interest in learning about specs or comparing specs or anything like that. . They just wanted a yes or no answer to the question, "will it be a good camera".
I think this is typical of the demographic that buys low end DSLRs.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
