    Spend the extra $10 for the one with the extra battery and the remote shutter release, which is handy for night photography. To buy the extra battery and remote shutter release will cost more than $10.

    I would still highly recommend trying out both in person and seeing what is more comfortable and intuitive. You don't want to use a camera that you find uncomfortable or difficult to operate.

    That's because the Rebel line is shit. When you get into the EOS line they're much better.

    Over here they're all branded EOS, there is no 'Rebel' or 'Tx' branding. You need to get into the 700D/60D/70D/80D before they're any good really.

    Out of this list I'd recommend the D3300 (smaller and lighter body than some of the older Nikon's), and the Sam's Club Rebel T5i (for the warranty).

    I personally have enjoyed my D3300 and just wish I had another small lens. $500 seems a bit steep to pay for it used, unless it really does have such little actuations.

    The second link for the D5100 is a bit better with the shutter release value (dependent on brand), but the first link is probably what I'd go with due to the fact that all original paperwork is included.
