    Well, there could be a lot of reasons for you to switch camp, but some how, the reason you mentioned seems not valid to me.

    I would say, if you own / use Nikon before, you may switch, as you have familiar with it before, thus you don't need longer time to understand your cam.

    If you just own the 450D / your 1st dslr, why don't you take your time to understand and master your camera?

    IMO, simply follow what others do will not help you a lot....

    every camera is a good camera
    just as long as you know how to use it.

    yes, even a P&S camera

    even if you have a PRO camera that makes you go WOW
    and you don't know the camera well, your images will eventually not be WOW

    The person behind the camera is a much bigger in creating great images, not the camera.

    Dear TS,

    Justify your switch of camps by your needs, requirements, and personal fundings. Don't switch camps because many "PROs" are into it. I was a camp-switcher previously, from Sony A200 to Nikon D300 but the switch were mainly due to the likes of ergonomics of Nikon bodies, I, too have a lot of buddies, friends, brothers and sisters using Canon-systems but that doesn't mean I have to follow their suits and persue for Canon systems. Likewise, if you watch as many English Premiere Leagues game, many of the featured "PRO" photographers were using Canon-systems with their Canonic super telephoto lens, so are you going to return to the arms of Canon when you are moving towards sports-photography?

    As mentioned in other threads who oftened mentally-challenged between Canon and Nikon by their brands. For goodness sake, brands and camera-bodies are just a tool to pair-up with the users. A truly good and amazing photographs, comprises a good timing, a good opportunity and a good set of skills you possess over your camera-system. Without good skills and abilities to manipulate your camera-system, even a primary school kid using a phone camera can take better than yours.

    Truth and facts can be hurtful but don't dwell and overly possessive over camera-systems, hone your skills and fully utilised your 450D's functions and capabilities. Need be, invest on lens... they are the eyes that made your photographs look good.

    Look around threads, you will see the wonders of Point-and-Shoot and Prosumer cameras which captured shots that are equally if not far better than some dSLRs.

    regards

    PS: hope i didnt offend anyone or any brands

    Monkey see, monkey do? Can you tell from looking at the prints whether Canon or Nikon was used? Or maybe it was even Sony, Pentax ..?
    Focus on your photographic skills, they play a bigger parts in the process of capturing good images then just the camera. Courses should not be linked to certain brands, that's a bit fishy. There are plenty of other companies and institutions offering photographic courses.
