Sorry to be another one of those people who need help buying a beginner camera but I'm lost. For years I've had point and shoot digital cameras. I had the Canon PowerShot and have the Nikon Coolpix. They've served me well and I've managed to take some decent photos with them. I'd like to do a bit more with photography and I feel limited with my current camera. I'd still consider myself as a beginner or at best a novice when it comes to photography.

I'm looking for a recommendation for a good DSLR around the $500 price range.

I tend to mostly do landscapes/seascape photos but I do occasionally want to shoot at horse shows or other sporting events and I sometimes get the chance to take photos at live music events (a friend of mine is a professional musician). My stock account is a pretty decent example of the type of landscape/seascape photos I take.

I've been thinking about getting the Canon Ti5 or possibly the Nikon D3300 but I am open to suggestions. Best Buy is having a sale and Amazon has some reasonably priced camera bundles for sale. There are beginner DSLR classes available near me so I should be able to learn how to use whatever I buy properly.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.
