/p/, after much lurking and research I'm about to cop my first real camera.
I've narrowed it down to either the Sony A37 or the Rabal T3i
I'm going to be doing mostly videos. (Think blogs or conventions) I understand I'd be needing other equipment (external mics, lenses), but for now, I want to focus on the body.
I'm not trying to break the bank, so I'd like to save as much cash as possible.
That being said, should I buy the manufacturer refurbished model for about 400 or a new unit for about 500?

Why doesn't flickr have a curated section of photos like 500px? Or am I just blind?
The best (and only good thing) about 500px is not having to wade through a whole bunch of shitty pictures to find good photographs to be inspired by. Otherwise, I can't stand 500px, because the unfortunate side effect of everyone wanting to be on the front page is all the comments are sycophantic bullshit made with no thought at all, and designed just in hopes that the person they complimented will "like" their own photos.
There's some great photos on flickr too, but it's hard to find because most of flickr is just people posting snapshits of their family, which is fine of course, but it doesn't contribute to flickr as any great resource of source of beauty or interest. Sometimes I'll filter by cameras like the Canon 5d, just because there's a greater chance of better photos simply by the expense of the equipment, but it's a pretty crappy way of curation.
And creating a user-curated collection on flickr wold be so easy to implement! But I suppose it would end up turning the flickr community to garbage like 500px. What do you think?
