hi Fellows

Kindly advised on the 3 DSLR Canon 450D, 40D & Fujifilm S5 which one should I go for for it? i intend to get one DSLR soon but can't decide on which one should I go for it. I have read about the 3 DSLR. I have got the feel of 450D and 40D but not Fujifilm S5. I would like to hear advise from my fellow clubsnap members. i thought of further my photography hobbies further as freelance in the future. Thank you very much.:)

Depending on what you want to shoot. The S5 has great dynamic range but the Canon has got better speed I would say. So it's really up to yourself.

freelance as news/sports photographer, go canon or nikon. freelance for wedding,events, still life, landscape and many more.... etc? go for fuji. if u want to travel with super light camera systems go with olympus.

there's no one perfect system but if you're going for good out of the box pictures and great dynamic range, go for fuji.

my 1 cents worth.

If weight does not matter to you then you can eliminate the 450D.

Therefore leaving you a smaller headache....
Between 40D and S5, choose one.... you can't go wrong~
Both Cameras can serve most of your daily needs.

That depends on what kind of shoot u go for and budget.. Different shoots, different lens..

Get the kit lens or Tamron 17-50 and start shooting. Everything else will come later once you have found your style and subject.
