Hey everybody. I've been thinking about getting a D SLR for my girlfriend who's always been interested in photography. I wanna get an entry level camera mostly because of budget reasons. I've been reading a lot and asking around and I decided to get either a D5100 or a D3200. I'm tempted to get the D5100 because apparently it's the better camera. What worries me is the amount of people that are dealing with this "black image problem" caused by a malfunctioning shutter. It looks like it's quite a common problem so I don't know if it's worth the risk. I know no one can assure me that this won't happen to my camera lol, but since it's such a common problem should I just avoid this model all together? (I'm thinking about getting it from Amazon from under 500 bucks). *The D5200 is just not an option for me price wise.
Anyway thanks in advance to anyone who can offer some advice!
