Ok, I decided to start a separate thread instead of asking in my previous thread about the opinion of Canon and Nikon, because I think this is of a different subject. I have decided to get a DSLR later, being a 1st timer buyer for DSLR, any advice on what should I look for? Should I also test for dead pixel on the LCD? how do I test the dead pixel of the CCD of DSLR? Thanks.
