    Help me choose a camera

    Time for a digital SLR. My old one (very old) got swiped somehow.

    Had a Canon. Happy to switch to Nikon. Can you give me your opinions?

    TIA!

    Re: Help me choose a camera

    Both Canon and Nikon make very good cameras. The real question is what is your price range and do you like bells and whistles?

    Re: Help me choose a camera

    If you look down a little bit, I asked the same question and got some great responses
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Play with the menus and see what they're like to take pictures. How easily can you change settings?

    I got a Nikon and I love it but the particular camera isn't all that relevant- both are great. It's a matter of the little things that you like or want and the style of the camera setup; that kind of thing.

    I really like Nikon cameras. The only other camera I've owned has been an Olympus, which was pretty good too - but it was bulky.

    Re: Help me choose a camera

    Thanks for the responses! I want something that isn't too bulky (so I agree about the Olympus). I'll be shooting kids and sports mostly. Clarity of image is my biggest desire and I'm a fairly proficient photographer.

    Thanks again; the research continues.

    I think the biggest factor in clarity is image sensor size. Pocket cameras (for the most part) have teensy ones, the SLRs are bigger, and there are high-end SLRs are even better. Film still rules for total clarity, but the middle-range SLRs seem to be on a pretty even ground, with about the same sensor size.
