i thought the entry level 500D (t1i), comparably to other entry level slrs, is good at high iso?

Go canon is you have no camera history. Canons are far more user friendly.

^ that's bullshit, every entry level dslr is easy to handle. People shouldn't think about user friendlyness when buying dslr's.
If you want a cam which needs no skill/explanation just buy a damn Point and shoot and don't fuck with dslr's

^ +1

dslr is mainly for being able to have full control, using the presets is a waste of 400$+

but an entry slr should be a bridge from PnS to enthusiast SLR - it should still have some form of "user friendliness"

i'm glad at some of the simplification on the 500D, and i'm sure that entry level Nikons are easy to use too (D5000/D3000)

On the market here, they are the top cameras to buy, with Nikon being just a little behind, then Canon.


i thought the canon and nikon's were still top sellers in japan?

500D (EOS Kiss X3) and 450D (EOS Kiss X2) being the best and 2nd best selling for 2009?

the d40 lacks an auto focus motor, so all comparable lenses to anything you choose for a rebel will be much more expensive

thats why i decided to stay away from the d40 even though a lot of people on here will tell you otherwise, go for the canon

^ I think it's just that they wanna understand how to use the D40 to its maximum capabilities.

I am the same way. Still got a lot to learn.

when i was first starting out in photography i had the same debate of nikon vs canon....if the passion for photography is there it doesn't matter what you use...these are just tools. Personally i went with Canon, and over the years now i got some really good deals on bodies i now use a 1d Mk III...with a few L lenses

It all depends on personal preference, sure people will throw tech specs all over the place, like someone said earlier companies always leap frog over each other in technology...one brand will be good one year, and the other the next year....oh yea go with what your friends use so you can try and borrow lenses from them lol

i was in your situation before, i went with the d40. But i recommend the rebel.
The nikon is good for a not so serious photographer , good point and shoot. This was fine for me until i started getting into photography and wish i would have rather gotten a rebel. I also think the rebel has self cleaning eyes? im not sure.

I recommend the T2i. You can set the exposure in movie mode compared to the T1i where you could only
choose the iso. Not that much of a difference mostly just whatever feels comfortable to you.
