    Default Which is better? Canon 50D or Nikon D90?

    Hi guys, i have a question to ask and maybe some of you can help me out.

    I'm changing my system from Olympus to either Canon or Nikon.
    Can anyone tell me which of the two will be a better choice.

    Thanks in advice.

    Hi,

    I will give my personal opinion as I feel you are looking are for one.
    Your question will ultimately also mean "Nikon or Canon?" That is unanswerable.

    Here is a link comparing the 2 cameras that i found :
    http://www.digitalrev.com/en/side-by...1-article.html

    It lists the main differences. There are other comparisons on the net as well.


    I went D90. To me, it was easier to use, and easier to get results you'd be happy with.
    It was also cheaper at the time and came with a superb 18-105vr lens. It is also lighter and less bulky than the 50D body.

    D90 can also command remote flashes for creative lighting shots, and has a better high iso performance (meaning less noisy shots at iso 1600 and above if this is important to you).
    I also find the D90 handles trickly lighting situations better. (easier to get correct exposure)

    Also, it has a so-so video capture mode, which is better than none...for capturing certain things
    (like baby's first steps)

    That is just my opinion.


    You aren't gonna get a very direct answer in these forums as I have found the
    posters here will be generally :

    type A : " Go test for yourself and see... blah blah blah "
    type B : " Buy the best you can afford... blah blah "
    type C : " If you don't know what you need, you don't need a DSLR ... "
    type D : " Go do a search ! you lazy.... blah blah .. been covered many times b4..."
    and of course the classic,
    type E : " Its not the camera.... its the user.... blah blah...."

    All really not useful or helpful except for making you feel silly...

    Hope this post helped in some way. If not for pure entertainment.

    Good luck !

    Nikon D90 Vs. Canon 50D, my choice the nikon D90.

    Compare the two, what do they offer over the other? The Nikon D90 for the price is much better, yes the Canon will deal with more rounded photography, bu in terms of HD video the D90 will make the canon movie mode look like a useless side function.

    if you know how to use then between the two, my money is on the D90.

    if you dont know how to use then the cheaper D5000 which is primarily the D90 without internal focusing motor you might want to look at.

    it all boils down to how much you are willing to spend... but always bear in mind, no matter what system you'll be using... "the best camera is the one that is in your hand."

    Your question should then be which is better canon or nikon?

    Once you have decided on the system you can choose the model that you can afford.

    i switched to nikon from canon! i like the contrast and processor.

    I like the styling of Honda car.
    However, Toyota is very reliable.
    If budget is a constrain, stick to Nissan.

    Between the D90 and 50D, I would go for 50D
    - More customizable features
    - Handling wise, have the wheel and the joystick - easier to change setting on the fly
    - Newer processor
    - More solid body - mag alloy.

    Honestly, I would compare D90 with 500D rather than with 50D.

    As for the video, not much to shout about, if you're serious about video, 7D or 5DII is the way to go.

    Ever considered nikon and canon as a SYSTEM for your needs(e.g canon more lens for Tilt-shift and tele, or nikon for wide angle) as opposed to a camera model you like.

    Hi guys, thanks for all your input and suggestions. Think like wat GForce states in the "standard" answers, will go and try them out.
    But so far, will go for the D90 more than the 50D.

    Thanks again and have a Merry Christmas to all. ^_^
