Comparing the specs the Nikon's display is .5" larger but the Canon has Live View. Other than that both of these models are fairly similar.

Both brands have great reputation and a wide array of accessories and parts. Though the Nikon can use older lenses than the Canon can.

Chevy vs Ford really. I say play with both and get the one that has the easier layout for you.

Make sure you buy the camera that is the most compatible with additional lenses and accessories. I know that one of the lower end nikons required a different lens than the rest of their line.

Both are very similar and will both give you good results.

I have a Cannon Digital Rebel Xt I bought about 3.5 years ago and it takes great pictures. I still haven't used all of the extra features it has. I love the speed of an SLR for taking action shots.

not sure what you budget is but Costco has the canon T1i for sale in a kit with two lenses for $800 and change. It is HD with a lot of goodies. Looks like a great buy. The body of the camera is $650 alone. It is also 15 megapixels....awesome camera

Another thing to take into consideration is if you have friends/family that shoot either or. The main reason I went with Canon was that guy I work with have Canon so we can swap lenses in and out making life a lil more fun

But if you dont I personally like Canon and the interface, but I have always been around Canon.

the lens makes a much bigger difference than the camera does, and it usually costs more too. try looking for a lens with a nice zoom range with f2.8, its going to be more expensive but you'll never regret it, you'll get quality shots everytime in all kinds of light since the f-stop is so big. but like everyone else said it all depends on what you like.

I just bought the Canon XS for my father last week. Got it from.... Wal-Mart, online, for 480 bucks shipped to my door. I hate to say I bought it from Wal-Mart, but it was the best price around.


Good luck with your search, if I was purchasing the camera for my self, it without a doubt would have been the Canon T1i

I have a Canon Xti and have been looking into upgrading to a 40d or higher. I love Canon's line of accessories and there lens are amazing. It it very true as stated earlier in the thread that the quality of the picture is heavily weighted on the lens, you will be spending more for a good lens but is well worth it. Also lens hold their value very well!!
