what the better camera ?

I have a Nikon Coolpix p500 And it great but I want better pics
so would a Canon EOS Rebel T3 be a great DSL camera for taking better picture or would a Nikon D5200 be better?
Help.. And I can only spend 300.00

Nikon- check out snapsort.com - it's helpful for comparisons

Nikon is best bang for the buck overall. If your limited by price go that route.

Have you considered used? You may get a much better camera for less that way. Even one that comes with a macro lense.

If you can get D5200, I'd definitely get that over the D3100.

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.
