    Cool Which Camera to Get???

    Hi... I am plannig to buy a DSLR camera and I really need to have some advice on which Camera to buy. I wanted a Nikon brand and is considering D80 but from the reviews I read so far, D40 is much better. Can please help me decide?

    The best way is to go online search and then go to the shop to feel and try. next would be to rent if possible.

    If you want a Nikon go for the D3, D700 or the D90.

    Thanks for all the advices... By the way I am a newbie, for a beginner like me is it really advisable to get a dslr camera which is not on the entry level like the d3 and d700?

    Not a Nikon user (Except D200), take note not all lens are compatible with the D40. If you've the moolah for D700 or D3, go get it.

    Why not, usually i will advice people to

    1) get the better equipments so it saves u the hassle of upgrading, or
    2) get entry lvl ones and use them till you outgrow the equipments, or
    3) get an SLR system to train for 'one shot one kill'.

    it really depends on yourself.
