Here is my story. I'm planing to upgrade from my Canon 3mpx compact to something really new and shiny.
I can't deside on the camera my self because so far I had only one camera and it was a compact. So now I have around 600-700$ from my budget to buy something worth that much. First I was thinking to jump on DSLR camera (especially when I saw your review on you tube about Nik D40x). Nikon D40 was my target. It is easy to use, light, made for beginers like me and it is DSLR for good money. Why DSLR I asked my self that day. The thing is that I am really into photografy and I travel alot. What stoped me that day was that the D40 is only 6.4mpx camera and it has not that much to play with. Then while I was thinking on whether to chose or not I saw G9 from canon which is hi-end compact. I really loved that the camera has many features and they are all much alike DSLR's. So I am here to ask whether to chose D40 or G9 in terms of picure quality and features for future.
