I have much interest in photography and have decided to get a dslr pretty soon... However, i can't decide between 1000d and 450d... I did some research and the main difference between the two cameras are written below.
10.1 mega pixels to 12.2 mega pixels (not impt i assume)
Auto focus with 7 points compared to 9 points
450d have spot metering while 1000d don't have
450d have larger lcd screen
450d have a better continuous drive
450d is about $200 more
IMO, the number of megapixels is not so impt. I also think a larger screen and continuous drive is not an impt factor for me as well. Hence left only with 2 main points - AF with more points and spot metering. Read one of the post whereby spot metering is rather useful but i am still not too sure how it really works. Need u guys to advise me the importance of this two points... Thanks!
