i'm looking at buying a dslr over next few months and seem have to have narrowed it down to either the nikon D3000 or the canon EOS 1000D. which would be better and why? cheers:D

Your best of going into jessops and having a go of both and see what feels best for you.

I would always say canon because i've owned all of their ranges 1000D, 300D, 20D and a 1D and can't fault them in any way.

i would spend the £400 you were going to use to by a 1000d and get a 30d, the build quality of the XXD range is far better than the entry level XXXD range
 
I have had nearly every entry level camera going lol (best say before Revels gets in there with a comment! ;))

Both are good entry level, but if possible try and up the budget to a d5000/500D :)

Get a Nikon if you're cool ;)

usually with similar level cameras, it will come down to personal preference. Like GCD says, try and test them to see how they perform/handle.

Very helpful Gregs. hahaha.
Id say Nikon all day but everyone has their own tastes so have a test out mate.

you might want to consider the sony A200 over those too. better alround camera IMHO

If your anywhere local to newcastle your welcome to try any of my canons out to see how they feel.

300D
20D
1D Mkii

But as said above anything in the XXD range has alot better build quality.

Try them both in your local Jessops / John Lewis / Currys then make your own decision, as only you have to use it !

Canon for me every time. Could not get on with the Nikon at all. Other people are quite the opposite :cool:

we are a canon house, 1000d, 350d and 50d.

means we can all share lenses (well, i lend them out, nobody else has any lol)

I prefer the canon lenses, nothing touches a 70-200 F4L in the price range.
