    Hey guys Im going to buy a dslr from the IT fair. Anyone can give me advice? Was thinking of getting a Nikon D60. I've decided to buy nikon as I dont really like canon like the eos 400d that my sch has. Am kinda new to photography. Im basically gonna use it for sch and for my own use.

    There's a new model now, the EOS 450D which i suggest you try to see if you like it.The Nikon D60 has also 3 AF pt compared to 9 for the EOS 450D.

    Either way, those DSLR retailers in the COMEX are stupid megashops like Harvey Norman, "Lousy" Buy which stick to Canon's rip-off RRP price.

    whats your budget? what is the type of photography you wanna pursue? then you will know what you need, and what you can afford.

    Haha, either way - it's up to TS himself to decide. I just feel that the Nikon D80/90 is the direct competitor to the 450D instead.

    to add on, do you intend to get into photography seriously (long term)? Will you be willing to fork out moola for lenses at about $1k a piece? btw, if your school is using Canon, do they have lenses to lend you? What system are your friends using, if you choose the same system as them you can borrow lenses and stuff?

    There's a bunch of stuff you ought to consider. Try to get someone who knows about cameras and the pricing to go with you when you buy (whether you buy from COMEX or one fo the shops) to ensure you dun kenna chop. I don't recommend buying at COMEX, unless you bargain away all the unneccssary stuff they "give" you and get a lower price.

    Well Im in Motion graphics & Broadcast design in nyp. My course deals with film, motion graphics, animation & photography. The school does have various lenses etc. But We kinda share the 3 available cams with the other 2 courses in our sch of Digital media design. This is one of the reason I wanna get my own dslr. Photography is one of my modules in yr3.

    However Im just currently in yr1 but we do started learning on photography during our extra lectures. My lecturer advices us to start taking pictures from now on. All I have now is a pathetic 3megapix canon camera that my dad got as a gift a long time ago. =\

    Basically I do not know wad kind of photography I wanna be shooting as im really2 new to all this. My budget is around $900-1.3k?

    i can tell you what you'll be shooting. you'll do several categories. Architecture, macro, portrait, night and sports. those are the ones you confirm do (unless you do shots only for your animation purposes.) i'm communications and media management in TP. wah ok get your own cam better, cause you'll panic when you need to do your assignment and everyone is trying to loan the cams.

    1.3k? 450D is above that budget. For canon and Nikon the only things in that budget (correct me if i'm wrong) are the D60 and the 400D. and the cameras below that of course.

    not really say uselesss laah, depends what they give...

    i rather u buy in CS or shops. Better to buy in CS.
    Since your new to DSLR, get a second hand first. like me, I got a Nikon D70s, than i bought 18-70, 50mmf1.8, 70-300 all from CS( second hand ) except flash i buy from shop. Its much cheaper that way, you will have spare cash to get DryBox/DryCabinet and even get a Tripod? haha. Than after that if you feel you need to upgrade. Start buying new bodies. I might be getting D2x or D300, althought its second hand. But i Feel that if you get second hand you will save much more. Check the Market Price FIRST , than start your bidding. But of cos, kena SUAY seller.. than you suay lorh, so if u are getting second hand things, make sure check for Fungus-FREE, Scratches on image-sensor , see how is the condition like, Snap a few picture and zoom in and check for damages and also check if is there anymore warranty anot.

    Thanks alot for the advice. I think I'll try to convince my dad to get me the D80 instead of the D60. I guess we'll walk ard Comex and compare outside prices too and see what to decide. Thnx lot guys.
