[HELP] I want to get into Photography ~ Which DSLR Camera shall I get? [HELP]

Title says it all? :b

In the future I'm considering to be a journalist so having some experience within the photography world would surely help and that's why I want to start introducing myself now that I am 15 y.o. and I also loved to appreciate good photos and short films too so... The thing is that I can't spend much much money cuz' I'm not the one working for it, my parents are and I don't want to be toooo spoiled :-s so it should be an entry level DSLR camera preferably under 500$... I've investigated and it seems that Nikon is better for photography when Canon is better for cinematography but ofc opinions may diverge ;)

I'm thinking to buy a Nikon D3200 but it's a bit over-priced for me...
What do you guys recommend?

Should I get the previous model, this is, the D3100 since it's cheaper or it would butt hurt you to buy something that you know it has already been upgraded? :-/

If you really serious I recommend you get something small like a Nikon D40 and work you way up from there.

canon rebel t3 or if you find a little bit of extra money the t3i. really though the kit lens will hold you over for a bit, but you will eventually need to invest in some better lenses, which will be more expensive the the body of your camera

A $100 Nifty fifty shouldn't be too bad also
