a new camera

I'm planning to get a new dslr camera. Weighing on the so many choices, I narrowed down to two brands Canon or Nikon (well based on what I've read you can't get wrong on 'em:). And with my budget, I'd probably go for mid-range the new Canon 550D, 500D or Nikon D5000. Hmm I'm not really sure what else to consider, any suggestions?

I've always love photography and I'm gonna make this a serious hobby. I'm now reading getting-started guides and such. I know there are many of you guys out there who are good in this, anyone willing to teach me? I'd be very grateful:)


Entry level (budget)

Canon EOS 1000D / Rebel XS


Canon EOS 450D / Digital Rebel XSi


Nikon D3000

Who is now reading this?



May-be one is now reading this who knows some wrong-doing of my past life,
Or may-be a stranger is reading this who has secretly loved me,
Or may-be one who meets all my grand assumptions and egotisms with derision,
Or may-be one who is puzzled at me.


As if I were not puzzled at myself!
Or as if I never deride myself! (O conscience-struck! O self-convicted!)
Or as if I do not secretly love strangers! (O tenderly, a long time, and never avow it;)
Or as if I did not see, perfectly well, interior in myself, the stuff of wrong-doing,
Or as if it could cease transpiring from me until it must cease.

Walt Whitman
