Witch should i get? 650d or d3200? Iam looking for a all around camera and iam a beginner but still like something witch iam not going to outgrow to fast. I would use it indoor and outdoor. also to take it with me on my travels. so witch of these are recommended? Also would be a big benefit if it takes good videos
