As far as image quality that would depend on the photographer and not entirely on the camera being used. I have not had to deal with Nikon Support, my cameras have not malfunctioned...so I cannot offer an opinion on that. :mac:

im just gunna throw this in here, mabye pick up a used 20d....
Nikon also has grey lenses...however most of the photogs in this photograph do not own their own equipment their company does. If I worked for a company that purchased my equipment (Canon gives them great deals by the way) then I too would shoot whatever came free.

Edited to add:
I need to say that I have owned both Nikon and Canon (not DSLR for Canon), its really simply a matter of taste...and both make good images when used properly. Dont get swayed by someone who has entirely too much emotionally tied into their equipment.

Thats another topic...

I cannot decide at the moment between a new MAC or PC laptop...figure I will wait until Fall/Christmas to buy.

Three weeks ago, I almost bought a Canon DLSR (The 5D) but decided that between that and then needing to get a lens to go with it that it just would not be financially responsible so went with another Nikon. I may own both systems again in the future if Nikon does not produce a full frame sensor camera line, as I feel there are advantages to it.

Please, look at any professional sporting event. Better yet, look at the pictures. Even if the employers give the cameras to the photographers, they wouldn't use them if they didn't like the results. If you depend on being paid to take pictures, you're not using a crappy camera.

I meant as much as tutorials and learning to use the camera. Canon has an awesome tutorial website.


Ok, as far as whci hcamera to buy I have been reading more and more reviews of the nikon being better outside, and the canon being way better inside. Which will you be shooting more of?

the black looks better.... the silver looks cheap to me, like how most of the point and shoot cameras are silver.

As a Canon guy... I have to say you are way off here... You will always see alot of L glass at any event that requires large telephotos. Canon has always dominated those markets. But if you look at people doing more in the field PJ and studio work you will quickly see more Nikon than Canon. Both have advantages... Canon may have better telephotos but at the same time they have worthless wide angles (I'm speaking from painful experience).... an area that Nikon does quite well in....

Again to make blanket statement is just silly. It all depends on what you are shooting.

I think as long as the point that Canon, Nikon and even Kodak cameras work well (Kodak can be bought to use either Canon or Nikon lenses)...what really matters is that the model you decide on has the features you need to shoot what you wish to.

Anyone who is invested into a system should look first for a camera that can already use lenses they own.

Hi!, nice option! I have the 350D (RebelXT) in black, I LOVE IT!

I didnt know you can have a smaller price because of the "color" of the body, here in mexico it cost the same.

Of course the black is better, silver LOOKS cheaper and with the use the color tends to wash a little bit.

This is my 2nd post in this forum!..hello to everybody

Hello! ˇBienvenido a los forums! I've always leaned towards Canon, usually video-wise (XL2) but I love using the Rebel series

really? i think the 10-22 is one of the best lenses i have used. for a crop body camera, and the 16-35, is a great lense for the 5d, and 1d. i just got sick of shooting with the d70. so i left nikon bitterly
