A very common question ppl will always ask.Well personally i would say Canon & Nikon makes really good quality DSLR but when it comes to a choice between this two, is best you go down to a retailer and try both of them hands-on.
From there you can really have the feel of the camera itself and you can determine by then with it more suitable for you (eg: weight,size & features).Play around with the features on both cam and find out which one is more user friendly to you.
Check the technical specs as well. Nikon D60 can mount all Nikon lenses but cannot do AF will all of them, Manual Focus works well. Check the technicals in the Nikon section here. See if this point is relevant for you.
We can discuss a lot of stuffs here - but it's your decision. You might want to read older threads in this forum to see what other people have already commented (many times...)
my friend just bought a 450d yesterday, i also think its better than d60 in many ways.
besides that, i somehow feel that d60 and d40 actually not much diff, just mainly the mega pixels, and a bit of the sensor.
i dont know if im right, im a newbie too
No offense, but you should really do your research before asking this question, there are already a gazillions similar threads on such question. Nikon and Canon both makes good camera, so there cant be a wrong choice, more of a preferrence by you
Do more research and hand-on the camera and you will have an answer :thumbsup:
Might want to compare with Pentax K200D and Fuji S5 Pro since your budget is around there. Not to mention offerings from Olympus and Sony since i take it from your question you are not too familiar with PnS vs DSLR.
For DSLR, i dont think the words buy wrongly exist. Just that whether the user know how to use or not.
Just see what do you need, like do you need extra live view function? Or do you need an extra 0.5 inch LCD screen is all up to you..But one thing is for sure Nikon D60 manual forcus is :thumbsup: there is a full bar to guide you into it. Just try out both cam and see which fits yr hand
I'm not too sure about the best deal but i got my body+kit lens 3 days ago at CP-MS for $1105 (after $20 rebate with the MS voucher which can be exchanged at the info counter with the purchase receipt)
