my experience with cameras is pretty much mediocre.
I wanted to use it for taking good quality pics for D1 drifting so something that can take a still pic of the car with multiple shoots.

do you mean d90? no way in hell was someone charging 1200 dollars for a d40 especially costco.





but yea 800 is alot of money you can definitely pick up something pretty nice with that. id suggest an xti and an extra lens or flash.

Didn't CC shut down?. Well I've tried out an xsi which I think is similar to an xti in terms of egornomics and it just didn't feel comfortable in my hands. especiallycompared to a d40 I used for a day.

my advice is to get a cheap digital slr, usually from a previous generation. like the original canon digital rebel, or one of nikon's original dslrs. you can snag one on ebay for $300 or so. if you don't like ebay, check out local camera stores in the area. you can find some great deals there

if you're serious about getting photography, save up for lenses. they will always outlast your camera bodies.

if you want more info, just PM me.

the comparison isnt really fair. the xti and the d40 arent really in the same league, its more like half or a full step above. D40 is definatley an entry level dslr. The xti has more pixels, better iso, faster shutter speed and a better auto focus system. I dont know who told you that zsolo but canon lenses are generally known for better quality glasses. Consequently they usually cost more. If you can find the xti at a price your willing to pay then i say go for it.

Adorama has had an Xti body for $300 for a while now...it's a factory refurb but a steal. Adorama is legit too, been to their brick and mortar store a couple of times. It's like a mini B&H.
