    Bring it to a hypothetical extreme, if someone offer you one to one exchange, will you do it?

    i'll want to upgrade my photography skills, and take better photos, but i won't be changing system just yet, in order to get better pics...

    Definetely not...

    There alway be new cameras...But it is the eye behind the camera that maketh all the difference. Should I upgrade, it would be because I gonna use my 300D as a backup body....Else, no!

    no... no point. although a lot of the features are tempting.... i think if i really want to upgrade, i would call a 10D->1-series more of an upgrade than a 10D to 20D....

    besides i don't need it now.

    maybe next time when the 1-series are more affordable... perhaps.

    Default Any news on D200

    Ok guys lets face it, this argument will never end cos there will always be 2 poles of people debating on the issue.

    There will always be those who insist that the equipment is merely 'a means to the end' and it is the human factor that MAKES a photo.
    They are right.

    Then there will be another group who will always upgrade or even buy multiple cameras when a new model or technology emerges.
    They are not wrong either.

    Like all modern day technologies, upgrading is a process to improving on what we have. Without them, there will be no motivation for manufacturers to innovate and come up with cutting-edge devices, in this case digital cameras.

    But whether you are a commercial photographer or a romantic artist behind the lens, the bottom-line will always be for the love of the art. Technology enables us to push further that which limits the human senses. Rather than choose a side, why not embrace those 2 factors to reach new pinnacles in photography.

    * That aside, anybody knows when Nikon will be releasing D200?

    i'd probably pick one up when the dust settles. Esp if the high ISO images are as clean as Canon claims.

    Ask your mum whether she needs any godson. I will definitely apply for that position. Can also interview me before accepting me. I will also serve her tea and take beautiful portraits of her.

    no. currently using d70.

    firstly i don't think i'll switch across brands. for sure, nikon will be announcing another cool dslr further down the road.

    more importantly, i'm still new to photography and haven't even optimized my entry level dslr. i follow the argument that its the photographer that matters more than the camera.

    i would like to quote someone who posted a similar response on dpreview forum. i can't say it better myself.

    "Unbelievable. You're a self-proclaimed newbie (based on reading a recent post) yet you're tempted to jump ship for 2 stinkin' MP? Why? Get the most out of your D70 first. I'm talking about getting to the point in photography where the camera is truly holding you back - THEN worry about equipment. Please remember photography is 90% art and 10% equipment. The extra MP will only make your current shots larger not better.

    -Joe"

    Haha... very soon I'll have the whole country as my brothers and sisters!
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    hmm..

    a little OT, but nickmak, i'm pretty interested to know how you convinced your mum.. what is it that the mk2 is able to do that 300d cannot ? (in your context because not everyone shoots sports right ?)

    Tell you the truth... I brought her to see the camera and when she held it compared to my 300D, she said 'So much better built... So solid... blah blah blah...' My mum's the type who looks at how nice the thing looks...
