    In fact, it's quite relevant to the TS's question as it gives him an idea of either camera's strengths.

    At the same time, I've seen more photographers using D80s, D90s and whatever not than D3s, D700s, D300s and 5Ds. Doesn't matter if the TS prefers to buy something from the latter group. Irrelevance or?
    well, if I photograph a snooker tournament and I'm not particularly rich, I would choose the D90 over a D300...

    My point is that it's different to say:

    "the D300 has a higher frame rate, which might be useful to you if you intend to shoot sports or fast-moving objects"
    as opposed to
    "the D300 is more for sports photographers"

    which one do you think highlights the 'strength' of the camera better?

    I don't like the idea of pigeon-holing a camera to a certain genre of photography.
    A 1DMkIV, with it's blazing ___ fps, can also be used for long exposure landscapes.

    I suggest YOU should go back to school & learn some MANNERS.
    If you have done your research, you would not need to ask that question (quoted in red).

    If you simply bother to google for "difference between D300 and D90" the first result will be this link:
    http://photo.net/nikon-camera-forum/00RY1q, which gives you a 1000 shutter discussion of the pros and cons of each camera. Gives good insights from real photographers and users.

    And guess what? Just a couple of days back, I already posted in another thread, about the additional features the D300 offers over the D90. Did you bother to do a search? Or did you even bother to just look at the threads list Nikon sub-forum? You would have spotted that exact thread. Did you bother to look into D90 Users thread? or D300 Users thread? Did you really research? Or you just casually did some browsing on the subject? Research is gathering of and detailed study of information. What you probably did is just do a few clicks, page up page down.

    And I do not see how the 2 cameras are that similar. Even if you bother to look at the specs of each camera, or look at the buttons, or look at the top dial, or even look at the info displayed at the top LCD, any layman would be able to tell the differences.

    Rashkae is not even rude in his post. But you certainly are. Old pot calling the new kettle black. So get some manners yourself, and stop expecting to be spoonfed like a baby, unless if you are really one.

    ...so what if a certain question has been asked before, this is a public forum anyway, if one is not interested in the question asked, just skip it, nobody forcing anyone to read what they already know...after all this is a newbies corner, old pro who knows a lot obviously would not learn much from here, on the other hand, old pro who knows a lot and would like to help newbies obviously can contribute a lot.

    i quote top

    1. Do your level best to get something you really, really like.

    2. Make a promise to yourself—set a time goal in order to limit the time you might waste shopping and the money you might waste buying successive iterations of the same item. The best experiences I've had with new cameras were when I invested in exactly what I wanted and promised myself in advance that I'm going to commit to it for a certain period of time. I committed to the M6 for one year, and used it for nearly three; the OM-4T for three years, and used it for nearly five. Both experiences were great—very focused on pictures as opposed to gear. It's fun to shop, but it's crucial to stop.

    3. While you own something, no matter what it is, use it as hard as you can and enjoy it.

    Granted a newbie is blur, don't know the ins and outs or the norms of this forum. But in the similar train of thought, the newbie don't have to snap back at the senior asking them to do search. They can either go do a search after reading it, or don't bother about the post and wait for someone else to post something helpful. Asking for help is fine. But the attitude shown in the retort is not.

    And that blatant lie. Claiming to have done research, but yet ask basic questions.

    ....its always the way words are presented and interpreted, and like bouncing a ball at a solid wall, it bounces back the way we throw the ball. Let there be less anger annd more tolerance for a more friendly forum, after all we are all here for the same interest.

    I am disappointed that u ASSUME u know best and ASSUME that mango told a lie about having researched and still indecisive. Sorry but maybe i am not as smart as you to be able to understand everything that has been written on the internet..

    And what about snapping back at the senior? If anyone is rude to u, do u take it lying down too? If he had kindly asked if mango had searched the net for more detailed info I am sure mango would have replied kindly.

    If a question had been asked before thus making it "stupid" for someone to ask again, I hope you never become a teacher..

    And here we just read about an australian saying singaporeans having bad manners.. How can i even refute that now..

    if the ts had researched, and not gotten the differences between the 2 cameras, then perhaps he needs to re-examine how he researches.

    typing "difference between d90 and d300" only yields like 800000000000000000000000 threads in google.

    i don't see how he could have typed anything different. maybe he typed in "pikachu d90 d300"?

    i do agree that senior members do not deserve any special treatment though..... it's just a silly title. if a moderator misbehaves (e.g. is known to flirt with xmm, suggesting morality issues) then he should not deserve any respect as well?

    i think the point is not that the question is "stupid", it's just that the threadstarter is an adult and yes, we are all here to learn from each other.. but where does the buck stop is my point...? i suppose rashkae and daredevil's intentions are to tell the threadstarter that he can actually find out these information easily on his own.. and there is nothing wrong with doing that, right? since we're on education, teaching a man to fish, is better than giving him fish everytime he rubs his stomach and complains that he wants fish..? hope you get my point.

    from my view, perhaps telling the threadstarter gently how do go about searching, etc, until it is proven that he is an absolute imbecile might be preferable.

    in any case, quarrels help no one. they do not help the threadstarter, they do not help anyone participating in this discussion. just my 2 cents.

    mango: in future, if just want bare spec comparison, can go to dpreview, find the camera comparison guide there. for iq, can use imaging resource's image comparison site.

    this is dpreview's camera comparison guide:

    buying guide ---> side by side comparison -

    http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sidebyside.asp

    add what you want to compare to the list, every single field is listed and pitted against each other directly.

    comparison of sample images:

    http://imaging-resource.com/IMCOMP/COMPS01.HTM

    please bookmark these, they will help you in the future, as dpreview and imaging resource have been around for a long time, and should be around for a long time. even if the address changes, you can find them easily on the sites again.

    cheers!
