    dunno. this is my type of fun. if the camera does everything.. then the person behind the viewfinder just need to press the button no? :P sooo boring

    Default Re thanks to All

    Hallo All,
    Many thanks for your good comments and very happy on the respond. Frankly, i am very new to poto shooting Hope all the bro. can give advice to get a reliable SLR cause is not a cheap hooby. At Sim Lim today and have check out the price of D80 and D200 difference od +-$300 with kit. So posting another question. D200 is much much better than D80 for another value of $300. Or D80 can do the job of D200. I like to take picture indoor most of the time like models, car show, people and friends wedding. Btw the 2 cameras is there any one of them is more sitable for this type of shoot? (

    Wow.. from 400D/D40 level.. to D200 liao.. virus is spreading fast!

    As far as I know, they are quite similar function wise. Other then D80 takes less battery power and better noise control, D200 is suppose to be Professional camera with Magnesium body.. for onli $300 extra.. tough choice..

    But of coz.. $300 can get u some nice lenses.. or flash (since u like to take indoor shots.. cannot go fren's wedding wif pop up flash rt?? keke)

    Hmm ... Does the D200 come with kit lens? Don't think so... Better check. Price diff more like $800 ...

    For what you want to take, the choice will be more on the type of lens than the camera. Every camera has its own strengths and weaknesses. A 400D with a L lens can have a much better image quality than a D200 with a lower quality lens. Based on your requirements, a good flash is also a necessity. Another budget to allocate $$$$$.

    Can go to http://www.dpreview.com/ to see the reviews on each camera.

    In any case, a good camera and good lens = Sharp and clear photo which is Not equal to good photo.

    So the best choice is to find a combination of camera and lens based on what you want to take which is within your budget. IMO iIf your budget allows, go for the better lens.

    Although I am Nikon user would say that the 400D is a better buy than the D40(X). D40 has no ability to work automatically with AF-D lenses
