All are good, depends more on your priority and which camera feels better to you. Personally felt, Sony had the technology (best live view implementation, as such will operate closer to a compact) while canon has better noise control. and D60 give very vibrant colour and good white balance. Please take note of the lens and flash that you would be interest later on instead of just focusing on the body. You will find that the lens can buy you a few body. :)

I will go with 450D, I have hold this cam yesterday... 3" lcd screen is nice... it's like a small 40D a bit.

I would go for the 450D too. Here is a few reasons why:
- 9 point AF
- Widest range of lenses
- Highest continuous shooting speed (3.5fps vs 2.5fps(A350) vs 3fps(D60))
- Biggest LCD at 3"
- Better resale value
- CMOS sensor vs CCD in the other 2

I was playing with the A350 last night and was very impressed by it's performance too. Now I'm itching to see if I can afford another cam. Do check out MS Color, I think they will have a good deal. ;)

Go with your heart.. and stick with it, Can say the three camera are all good... and can take excellent pictures. Worse is listen to others.. then regret. If may own decision and regret.. still can live with.

Also.. as mentioned here... look at lenses and flash support.. this is important as buying a SLR is buying a system.. and some lenes.. one can buy u two bodies. :sweat:
