 Post subject: First Camera
PostPosted: Wed Oct 03, 2007 2:38 am 
Hey I'm getting my first camera for my 18th birthday this Friday. I'm really into cars and the constant show and shine threads with people posting pics of their evos has really sparked an interest for me in photography. Of course i'm not only going to be taken pictures of cars though...

Yes I'm a newbie, but I like to buy quality products.

I'm deciding between the 400d(xti), the d40x, or the d80... The 400 and the 40 are about the same prices, while the 80 is a few hundred more expensive.

Which one would you recommend? Up to other suggestions aswell.

Thnx!

I doubt there's a single person here that will tell you not to get the D80 if it's a choice between the 3 of those. I could be wrong, but it's the best camera overall between the 40 and 40X.

Well technically speaking the D80 is the best body of the three, but it's also the most expensive. You should also take lenses into consideration as you may prefer Canon's selection to Nikons, or of course vice versa.

Check out our D40x verdict here as it covers all your options:
