    You must try Nikon D50/D70s and Canon 350D, read the review on the net (google it, thousand of information on the net), and decide yourself which one is better.

    You must also considering the whole system, not just a camera.

    Regards,
    Arto.

    There are many DSLR in the market out there. All have their good points and bad points. Do some research to see which DSLR matches your need and budjet. As Artosoft said you are buying into a system so selct carefully. Here a link which does a pretty comprehensive test:

    Hello,

    Maybe if you wanna buy used ones to try out first. Just in case you might decide to switch brand later.

    I like 350D's CMOS and low noise, but I like D70's good control layout and its 18-70 kit lens. Both cams would not disappoint you, give it a try at the shop.

    I bought the 300D, upgraded to the 20D and now I own the 30D. My advice: Go straight for the 30D to save $$$ on upgrades Go for body only and buy a good lens. Most likely you will trash the kit lens and waste $$$ to buy a better one. BTW I am biased towards Canon because it is made in Japan.

    Stick to your budget. Dont buy what is best. Buy what is suitable for you. The equipment is usually better than the photographer. Dont chase for the best equipment but chase for the photographs.

    If 350D is an option, do include the grip. Makes a world of diff.

    Advice: Go down to the shop, ask for both cams (make sure 350D is mounted with grip), blindfold yourself, feel both cameras, pick the one that feels better, come back to clubsnap to join the forum of your chosen camera to explore the camera more. You would have made the right choice.

    i tried b4 D50, D70, D70s, 350D, 20D. well, still like nikon 's feel.... but its jus the matter of getting used to. for D70 and D50, there is no vertical grip. so if u cant live without one, then go for canon lor, which have for even 350D, which imho feels lousy without it. cos too small.

    Hi there,

    I see many pose the same question, " should I buy a Canon 350D or a Nikon D70".

    If you were here in Australia and asking what car you suggest, it is like "should I buy a Holden or a Falcon".

    Sorry for the example as I don't know the 2 most popular cars there ..... but !

    I don't see the question..."a Canon 350D, a Nikon D70 or an Olympus E500"

    Just like I don't see... "A Falcon, a Holden or a Mitsubishi" here.

    By looking outside the, "hey the pro's use one square", you will find some very worthy cameras and cars.

    Cheers
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    Got 1 way to be sure. Maybe you wanna consider paying a small fee to loan these camera so that you can try it out on your own. There are a number of people who loan out their equipment here for a nominal fee. Do a serach and you should find it. For spending just a small sum, it is better than buying when not sure and regretting later.
