    Don't forget that the the Nikon D5000 doesn't have an autofocus motor built into the body while the Canon 500D has it.

    Nikon D5000 + 50mm 1.8 = Manual focus

    gurus, I'm a journ student and i'll be needing a dslr for my photojourn class. An entry-level dslr, would be fine. I've learned that phased-out na yung nikon d40, and some nikon d60. What would be the next best option? What dslr can you recommend. tia.

    D40 is a fantastic camera, i think you can still buy D40 in Hidalgo..or you can buy 2nd hand ones from trusted sellers.

    if you cant and wont..get the nikon D3000 or D5000, they're starter DSLRs too...(D5000 has more bang for your buck)

    Ask ko lang, bumili ako kahapon ng canon powershot a480... bakit laging lumalabas yung date and time settings pag turn on ko... pinalitan ko na ang battery ganun pa rin... yung isa ko naman kodak digicam hindi ganun... pano yun every time na on ko siya iset ko lagi ang date and time? :)

    Between the Nikon D300 S and Canon 7D,what camera would you choose?And why?
    Thanks.

    im not a photographer pero i got to test those two cameras in a camera shop. same settings, mas accurate ang nakukuhang color ng canon, D300S vs canon 7D and 50D

    kaso mas mahal ang canon 7D compare sa D300s.
    flagship yata ng canon ang 7D. not sure though.

    Thanks.

    Choosing which camera to buy is not only a technical choice, but a personal one as well. How it handles in your hands, weight, color saturation, user-friendliness, etc... are all important considerations. Whether it is the Canon7D or Nikon D300s, it is better that the pros analyze the technical details for you, while you analyze the camera based on your personal preferences. Note that the image on the LCD may not be the same as that which you view on your computer monitor. This means one picture may look good on one camera's LCD and look less saturated on another; but when viewed on the same computer monitor they may look similar. Besides, if you plan to Photoshop your pictures extensively anyway, then any camera's supposed advantages are for naught.

    Plus there are other things to consider: are the lenses the same kind? are all the settings eaxctly the same - and I am not only talking about aperture and shutter speed, but the entire spectrum of settings, from white balance, color management, exposure values, etc...Sometimes, the differences in color, sharpness, and quality are results of the lens you put on. On PCworld, there were comparisons made among diff sensors: a 6MP, 10MP, 12MP and 15MP camera, and there were hardly any noticeable differences on screen or on a printed picture.

    So if someone says you should buy a camera bec it has more pixels, he just wants to sell you the camera. Example: the sensor on a point and shoot Canon Ixus SD990 14MP camera is 0.43 cm² - which is smaller than the 10MP sensor on a Canon EOS 1000DSLR (3.28 cm²).

    Before I purchased another dlsr, I pored over reviews of competing models and side-by-side comparisons (just google canon 7D vs. Nikon D300s). If I had to choose between two cameras, it would be between the Canon 7D vs. the Nikon D700, with reviews favoring the Nikon D700 because of its full frame sensor.

    I also read Nikon will unveil a new D700 (D800?) replacement which will feature a 24MP full frame sensor (35mm), just like the $8000 Nikon D3X. Now this is worth waiting for.

    Thanks.

    Between the two: I'd go for the 7D.

    Probable reason: Nabitin ako ng 30k+ pesos for a 5D MarkII :lol:

    Share ko lang unexperience ko kasi Im quite disappointed. I got a lens from lens4less just yesterday, when I checked the site today, there's a similar lens to what Ive purchased. Ang malungkot dun mas okay ang quality (AB- un nakuha ko, A un bagong post) nung bagong post and me box + case. 300 lang un difference. He refused to exchange my purchase with the newer one. Feeling ko tuloy nadaya ako sa presyo.

    How's the snow storm treating you? We were planning on spending our NYE there but the fares are so expensive plus the storm was the last straw that broke the camel's back.

    Kainis. Next year?! Kitakits if ever!
