THE NIKON D7100 IS AN EXCELLENT CAMERA. MANY PEOPLE ASK ME IF I PREFER NIKON OR CANON AS A CAMERA BRAND. THE TRUTH, IN MY EXPERIENCE, IS THAT THEY BOTH DO THE JOB WELL. I HAVE OWNED BOTH SYSTEMS - I STARTED WITH NIKON IN HIGH SCHOOL AND CHANGED OVER TO CANON WITH MY FIRST JOB. IT WAS MAINLY BECAUSE CANON HAD BETTER AUTOFOCUS IN THE EARLY DAYS. NOW I'D SAY THINGS HAVE EVENED OUT AND IT'S A MATTER OF TASTE. IF I DIDN'T OWN ANY CANON GEAR RIGHT NOW I MIGHT BUY NIKONS BECAUSE THEIR SPEEDLIGHT (FLASH) SYSTEM IS BETTER. BUT CANON MAKES GREAT CAMERAS, SO I STICK WITH THEM. IT'S MORE ABOUT THE CREATIVE EYE YOU USE THAN THE CAMERA YOU BUY.
THE CANON EOS REBEL T5I IS A GREAT CAMERA AT A LOW PRICE. I RECOMMEND THIS CAMERA TO PEOPLE WHO WANT A QUALITY ENTRY LEVEL DSLR. YOU COULD EASILY USE THIS CAMERA FOR BOTH PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO AND GET VERY HIGH QUALITY RESULTS TOO. THE ONLY REASON I WOULD RECOMMEND A NIKON OVER THIS AS AN ENTRY LEVEL CAMERA IS IF YOU NEED SOMETHING A LITTLE STURDIER. TO SELL THIS CAMERA AT A LOW PRICE CANON USES SOME STRONG PLASTIC COMPONENTS. THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM FOR MOST PHOTOGRAPHERS, BUT IF YOU PLAN ON TAKING YOUR CAMERA INTO EXTREME CLIMATES YOU MIGHT CONSIDER EITHER A MORE RUGGED (AND THEREFORE MORE EXPENSIVE) CANON CAMERA OR A NIKON IN THE $1,000 RANGE.
This is a useful Grid Spot, and I use this for Animal Donut photography. It is a light modifier, which means it helps you to control the light that comes out of the front of your flash. It attaches to the front of your flash and lets you "paint with light!" I highly recommend it!
If you buy the Grid Spot you will need this velcro strap to attach it to your flash. It's frustrating if you buy the Grid Spot and don't buy this - for some reason they don't come in a kit and you will wish you got this!
