    I once overheard a Canon salesman telling this lady about the functions of a 550D, and he told her that only Canon has live view...

    I had my Sony A550 in my bag at that time, I almost wanted to take it out and show the lady the live view from A550 and tell her the salesman is talking crap...
    reali? i think you should show the lady, stun the saleman. hahax. but any way what is live view?

    My dad has a Nikon D3000. THe LCD screen is not very good so the pictures don't look nice on the screen. But on the PC is ok. As for the 550D, I think the LCD screen res is 921K, like Sony A550, so the picture sure look very nice compared to lower res LCD in other models which is only 230K. Basicially you can't judge the picture by the way it looks on the LCD.

    All dSLR can give you good pics. It is whether you have the interest and patience to learn how to take good pictures. And you will eventually get used to the handling of which ever brand you choose. I think the deal breakers (at least for amatuers) if you are serious about venturing into DSLR is as follows.

    1. Canon and Nikon has the largest user base, largest range of OEM lens and also easier to find 3 party lens the are made for Canon and Nikon. But for the same spec these two are the most popular and hence the most expensive. Or for the same budget, other brands can give you better specs.

    2. Sony, Pentax, Oly has in built stabilizer and inbuilt autofocus motor even for entry level models so equivalent lens tends to be cheaper as there is no need for the autofocus motor and stabilizer to be built into the lens.

    I don't think the concern should be about which camera can give you better quality pictures. Its the photographer that matters.

    Haha...you kerna bluff left right centre lol.

    It's about personal preferences. If you know that you want to adjust Aperture in Aperture mode then what's left is how intuitive the camera let's you do this. Factors here can be: amount of steps, buttons to press, dials to turn, need to look at display etc. Or if you suddenly want to change ISO, change metering mode .. how quickly is it done? Can you do this without taking down the cam from eye?
    I had a Canon PnS before I got my Canon DSLR, so for me the menu on DSLR was quite similar / familiar, no big change.
    Comparing pictures at camera LCD during such shows is silly nonsense. Neither the display is halfway accurate nor are the cameras set to neutral jpg rendering. Together with funky light conditions where many cameras will have their struggles for White Balance) the outcome rather like lotto.
    Accurate comparisons of image quality can be found on www.dpreview.com and other websites. Sales men should be ignored at all times during such shows. Mostly hired guys with crash course briefing about how to hold the camera, list of freebies and how to process payments. That's it.

    yup! agreed on that.. even if D3100 cost more then $1000, i believed the launch will impact other camera's prices to drop.

    So at that moment, probably you can get a better kit at a more affordable price.

    Discounted compared to RRP. Discounted compared to outside shops? Almost never.

    You are lucky you've found CS before you went to plonk down for a DSLR at the fair! The seniors advices here are very sound - RRP is just a gauge (think of it as the highest price index you're paying for)... If you do your homework for pricing, you could be saving 30-40% off the RRP outside. The pricing of DSLRs at the fair are pretty gimmicky (free wonky tripod? oh sure!) Think of the number of poor souls who paid extras at the fairs!....

    hmm... icic. guess i need to try out nikon d3000 again, as for canon 1000d, it don't have any videoing, so i guess that' out for my selection.

    Don't worry about the size or price of the cameras other people are using. Worry more about the quality of the pictures you will be producing.

    But in Singapore, we've got Millions of people... Sure have enough suckers to get sucked in by the gimmicky deals... Never say never... Never heard of the saying "there is a sucker born every minute"? That said, there are lot out there who aren't apt with internet searches, or quite an introvert when it comes to their own lives... who'd know they would like to get into this hobby? You can't just walk down the street and tell everyone where not to buy right? That is simply insane... lolz And then if you try to tell someone they shouldn't go to SL or Lucky, some may think you're trying to show off your knowledge...

    Honestly speaking, if you have to ask those questions, you shouldn't buy a DSLR since you wouldn't know what to do with it.
    Go get one of those prosumer models with auto exposure or shutter modes, and if you find that you like taking pictures in those modes instead of the preprogrammed modes, then you could consider a DSLR.
