    sigh ...

    I use a Canon, my best friend uses a Nikon. I hate her camera, she hates my camera...
    We both shoot nice pictures

    Best is to pop up to any shop, maybe courts or HN or the other reputable shops listed on the forums... handle the camera yourself, which is more comfortable for yourself, then decide for yourself...

    btw... dont restrict to only canon or nikon, PENTAX, OLYMPUS, SONY, PANASONIC makes great dSLRs too !!!

    Have fun shopping !!!

    i started a thread on this long ago... maybe you can take a look ??

    Welcome to clubsnap.

    Firstly, the fact that both Canon and Nikon sell so many cameras means that many people like using them.
    And that's even before we get to the other brands like Sony, Olympus, panasonic, etc.
    There are many many brands out there. They are all plenty capable. It's all personal preference. Impossible to help you decide.

    It's almost like: which brand of laptop is good?
    Exploring! :)

    Nikon, cause you can spell it correctly

    But then again a cannon is far more powerful when wielded by the right person.
    My personal preference is a crude AK-47 though....

    lol, you can do a search of the many threads that have asked a similar question.

    You might also want to state your budget, so that the ppl here can help you zoom in on the model/brand. All the camera brands produce good cameras btw, so keep your options open.
    Here is a site to help you out on features :

    Welcome to Clubsnap

    Both are good brands. Selection of camera is very subjective and each person has different criteria and consideration when choosing.

    You can go to canon showroom at vivo to play on their dslr.

    Just try to hold & grip both cameras on your hand & you should be able to tell yourself.

    Sometimes, I feel that it's the camera that choose the owner.

    Welcome to CS
    Walk into any camera shops & when the sales person approach you & say - 'can I help you', you say yes. Say I'm looking for a DSLR, can you show me the different brands & models & explain the functions & specs to me? Most likely he'll help you because he wants to close your sale.
    Then get the feel of the cameras, see how it fits in your hands & is the weight ok for you, find out the prices & do not commit yourself. If you have the time, try a few stores nearby. Take back some brochures & go back & think about it & compare.
    Decide well before taking the plunge
    Take the shot!

    Asking Canon or Nikon is like asking Coke or Pepsi, Mercedes or BMW, LG or Samsung, etc. Hard to answer.

    Coke and Samsung is easy choice, at least for me.

    Canon vs Nikon or Merc vs Bimmer will be model dependent, no straight answer.

    The safest way, bring along your friend who knows and has been using DSLR to check for you
