I have a Canon EOS400D with a big 55-250 lense and i love it. My dad used to be a proffesional photographer and still does the odd job to go along side his graphic design work that he now does and he swears by Canon, he has had about 4 Canon DSLR's he currently has th 40D i think.
Apple vs Mac arnt they the same thing?

just a couple of weekends ao me and the girlfriend did a job photographing a wedding.
One Canon EOS 350D and one EOS450D - and they both perfomed brilliantly
I have to say, although the LCD on the 450) is much nicer, and it has more toys - these days most of the difference in actual photo quality is with the lens.

Oh yeah.. and buy it in a "real world" camera shop if you can stand the extra cost - they'll price match OK anyway, and to get a real feel for the thing before laying out the $ is invaluable.
If you're in a tight situation, or if you just have nae morals go in, test, and order online! In credit-crunch days though, you may be better offline, I have yet to be able to successfully bargain with a computer...

Canon 450d here, which I'm really happry with now. As a newbie to DSLR I actually found it a bit of a learning curve to get the best from it.
The main thing is to learn how the thing works properly. When I first got it I dived straight in without properly reading the manual and learning how the thing works. The results were to be honest a bit dissapointing. Now I've spent some time reading and learning how to use the thing properly and I'm getting much better results.

If you're in/near London, then the big camera shops along Tottenham Court Road are worth a visit. Depending on what you'll be taking pictures of, you might find a tripod handy - just a cheap (£20) one will probably do fine. I also find a remote shutter release button (around £5 off eBay) very handy - means you can mount the camera on a tripod and not even have to touch it to take a picture, stops camera wobble completely. Extra batteries are always good, too.

Top Tip #78: If you can't find/afford/don't want a shutter release button, use the the self-timer and set it to a small amount like 1 or 2 seconds to stop camera wobble.

Canon 350D here with all the toys, great camera with the right lense(s). You wont see much difference with a Canon or Nikkon, its a matter of preference.
Oh and top tip no 1000 - Dodgy chinese accessorie copies are well worth the risk, you will find its prob the same item as the oem without the branding

I'm quite a keen photographer and base my photography around another one of my hobbies. You can see some of my work on my website; Welcome to Curious Places
Most of the pictures on my website were taken with an old Fujifilm Bridge Camera, but I have a Canon 350d now which is ok for what I do, but not outstanding by any means.
