Replace for Canon S45
After almost 10 years of use my power shot s45 was moribund and finally died. I'd like to get a reflex camera but a I'm not pro and my knowledge about photography are very limited which means almost zero so I want a cheap one, I mean the cheaper the better. My brother has a Nikon D40x since several years ago and he told me that Nikon/Canon are the best so I was thinking about these:
Canon EOS Rebel T3 ... 470$
Nikon D3000 ... 500$
But I found this:
Fuji Film FinePix HS20 ... 336$ and though it'll be funnier than others above because it has a 30x zoom and can get it with a full combo for 390$
Acoording to http://snapsort.com/compare
T3 vs. D3000 = 45 vs. 30
T3 vs. HS20 = 56 vs. 74
D3000 vs. HS20 = 37 vs. 74
Those numbers lead me to get HS20 but as I said before I'm just a rookie photo fan. Can you help me to decide?
Thanks in advance

Was a good camera line! I had an S30 for 7-8 years. Back then you could get RAW on most of Canon's point and shoots. Now out of 22 models, there's only 3 or 4 with it.
Can't really recommend a specific model myself, but all my photography friends use Canon or Nikon DSLR. Probably can't go wrong with either brand.

I don't really know, but I have a D3100 now and it's great. Mainly got it because it was less than $400 brand new. It may or may not be worth the current MSRP. The D3200 might be coming out soon.

Sony now has DSLRs that have beam-splitter mirrors. Can't remember what they're called, but they allow you to use the viewfinder and autofocus while shooting full video. I know they have this in their high-end alphas but I don't think it's just the prosumer models that have it.

If you are used to the Canon controls buy a Canon. The picture quality and feature seperation between the two models is minimal. I switched to Canon from a Nikon and I have been pleasantly surprised by Canon's new way of building menus and the lenses are better plus there are more up-to-date primes to choose from. Plus the many affordable mid-range zooms are really good on the crop sensors.
Get the one you feel for, perhaps try them out at a store.
