    Okie, noted, will bring my spare tripod along on that day. It's not much different from the one that I'm using, may be the colour and length.

    They won't be out before the night outing. And with the estimated pricing of the 40D and D300, $3000+ is inevitable unless you get 2nd-hand lenses.

    I am looking into getting 1 DSLR + 3 lens + 1 Flash + Grip + some acessories.
    Maybe it looks like I need to push up to 4.5k - 5k.. Looks like going to eat grass.....

    My friend.... 40D won't be out till later this year or early next year..... why not just come to the gathering with whatever camera you have, just for fun. Save your money now and wait for the next new model from either Canon or Nikon to come.....

    Hahaha.... when 40D arrived, Nikon will be force to come out a new model like maybe D250 or D300.... no worry !!

    i think u may have to review yr budget?...lol....if this is yr 1st dslr....my recommandation is a body+zoom lens(for a more general use)+camera bag(important!)+dry cabinet

    maybe towards the later part when u r more familar, u can get the accessories and more lens to suit your need......

    and if u are selecting between canon or nikon......i will suggest u can read up more on the specs, review, etc......

    Thank you guys, for all the good advice. I really appreciate all these good points and views. I have read the specs of these 2 models everywhere...it seems endless..

    A good cam should be able to produce good pics. Fast, sharp, no noise at any ISO, heavy duty, good pics day and night, and cheap. All kinds of functions and new features are only there to further assist the photograher for easy taking of photos. Of cos photographer is the main source to capture good pics.

    Now that's tough. When will such a camera be available?

    Just get a camera, a decent zoom lens, a bag and a dry box/cabinet and go shooting.
