Who am I to correct you? You have first hand experience on the mentioned models where as I don't even have seen any of those models in person :(

What's the most common reason one is looking to buy a DSLR? IQ and low light performance. I think all the DSLRs including entry level DSLRs do that pretty well. Ones buying decision is based on many factors and intended purpose justifies why one is better than other.

Trivia: Nikon keeping their F mount for a very long time than Canon does it's EOS. Quoting wiki...
The Nikon F-mount is one of only two SLR lens mounts (the other being the Pentax K-mount) which were not abandoned by their associated manufacturer upon the introduction of autofocus, but rather extended to meet new requirements related to metering, autofocus, and aperture control. The large variety of F-mount compatible lenses makes it the largest system of interchangeable flange-mount photographic lenses in history. Over 400 different Nikkor lenses are compatible with the system. The F-mount is also popular in scientific and industrial applications, most notably machine vision. The F-mount has been in production for over five decades, making it the only SLR lens mount which has been produced for over 50 years

Pretty much all the things you buy for D5200 will also be compatible with D3300. So there won't be any upgradability problem. They suggested you to go for D5xxx or 600D because of the extra features.

By the way, you bought a DSLR?

Nope. I was so much confused that decided to skip the purchase for a few more months.

:D It's common... More research more confusion... Take time and buy when all your doubts and questions are answered.

Since the time I started using rx 100 I was not able to justify a real cause for buying DSLR. Since I am able to sell it for 20k (purchased for 17) so I am thinking of buying one soon.

Brought the Canon 600D into consideration, because of its articulating screen, might help in taking photos from weird angels while travelling ... worth the extra 7-8k ?

It was a good one when the deal was sub 28k two years back. I don't think it's worth it for the price. If it sells for ~24k like D5100 then it's good to consider. It's just my opinion.

When 750D/760D arrives, one can expect 700D around or under 35k. But it's just a rough speculation.

not worth that much over the 1200D imho unless you really need the extra features-self cleaning lens(not a biggie imho),articulating screen
especially when you are getting 1200D with TWO kit lenses- 55-250mm and 18-55mm for 27k
If you are willing to shell out more and dont need the extra features of 600D and want a SINGLE "all-rounder" lens, 1200D also has a variant with Tamron 18-200mm for 37k

though I still think the 27k variant is a better,vfm option
depends totally on needs

I heard 600D and 700D might be discontinued altogether(rumoured) ,that was the nail in the coffin for 600D when I picked up my 1200D last year for 37k (all stuff inclusive- tripod etc,bought locally for same price as online stores because I was afraid of camera breaking during delivery)

The dream is to do this

I know photography is not entirely about the camera, but is D3300 not a good choice for this ?
D3300 is more than capable, no question about it.
BTW, I am bookmarking the link :)

Yeah, eventually every model gets discontinued at some point (600D might already be discontinued). But they don't disappear from the market soon. Take for example, D90 is been selling for like a decade. I don't know... may be Nikon India is keep finding washed up D90 packages on the line of Indian coasts from Thailand flood ;)

yeah
Im doing my management,sem 3 now
we learned about MNCs doing this kind of practice- its called "Dumping"
Sell old stock for high rates in "3rd world"countries

^^Incase of a DSLR,it doesnt matter much because DSLRs dont get outdated that quickly,so its alright in this case

But still treating india as a dumping ground is not the way to treat us. And to be frank I only find moto selling its phones at same price as the international markets.

actually in the case of DSLRs,dumping is to our advantage
we have something to get for that price range instead of a price gap between 1200d and 700d like in US
Though I agree pricing must improve
1200D is priced extremely well now and offers a great package

Guies already fixed on D3300 don't praise the 1200D so much now :(

Edit: Yea D3300 is far ahead of 1200D according to most specs, im not going to get 1200D just to get an extra lens which I might not even use much :(

I was blown away by the photos in the website, hats off to the guy for planning such a brilliant journey, and getting such great shots of these relatively lesser travelled places.

I live in West Bengal and i find it weird that my friends keep dreaming about goa and leh without even considering locations in our own backyard which just as good, even better if you factor in the solitary conditions compared to more popular destinations ....

sorry to have confused you
also D3300 is only better on paper by a very small margin,it would be wrong to call one better than the other :)
you cant judge a DSLR on paper/specs only,thats only applicable for android phones :p
DSLRs have a totally different way of "better" and "outdated"
