Canon 450D V's Nikon D60
I am very new to this game and I am looking at these two cameras? (Why only these two I am still not sure) Can someone talk me into buying one or the other please...

Comments (10)

I chose the D60 because it just felt better when I tried it out and am not sorry I did .I would read what people are saying about the cameras on the feedback.

You can compare the cameras at the links below.

I'd try them both out in a shop, then if I still didn't have much of a preference either way I'd get the Canon for it's greater range of functions, live view, bigger LCD and arguably better image quality..

But if I really liked the way the Nikon handled... I'd probably be torn. Even so, the Nikon would have to be cheaper before I'd settle for it..

Short answer: Canon 450D (because I have one ).

But really, go to a store and see which one fits the hands better. Some like the user interface on one better, so it's all personal preference. When you are comparing higher end models like these two, both bodies are capable of producing superb images, so you should be looking at the lenses from Canon and Nikon...

For kids/indoor photos D60 (ISO3200, AF Assist lamp). Else 450D..

Hi Pencils, both your choices are good cameras and have different strengths and weaknesses. We really don't know much about what you plan on photographing or the conditions you will mainly use it in so the feedback will be a little limited to personal preferences..

My advice is to go and hold each of them work through the menus, see which is comfortable for you. If you are still undecided, think about which features will be important to you (completed details of the features are on this site for both cameras). Remember, some features are there mostly for marketing (ie the hardly usable 3200 ISO on the D60 - based on the sample images on this site) and others are very important to know about but not necessarily deal breakers (the lack of fast prime lenses with a built in af motor - no auto focus on the fast primes for the D40/D40x/D60). Other features are truely useful especially for a beginner such as the auto ISO features in the Nikons..

You need to weigh out what will be important to you..

Good luck..

Either is a good choice. I opted for the Canon because of the newer design, more megapixels (I know that is not supposed to be important, but every little bit helps for landscapes), and because of liveview. I wanted LV for the manual focusing for macro. You need to think about the features and slightly higher cost for the Canon and decide what matches your interests...

Thanks heaps for your advice and comments everyone..

I will be mainly using it for landscape and outdoor stuff, so should I run with the Canon 450D???.

I think I would like live view as well? do I really need it?..

Yes..

Well. One universal advantage of live view is "Accurate Framing". OVFs on such DSLRs are about 95-96% accurate. For some it may not matter but for me it is essential..

Hi,.

At first I was thinking to get Nikon then after reading reviews I was torn between these 2 cameras as well but finally (11 days ago) got 450D even it is more expensive..

The reason I chose 450D was that it has Live view function, I might not use the fucntion at all but it is good to know that the camera has this function. When I ask someone who is not familiar of using SLR to take photos for me then I can turn on the Live view function so the photo will not be Out of Focus. Other features would be pretty much the same for both cameras..

I am very happy with my new 450D, I need to take more photos in different situations to be familar with it..

Go to a store and handlep/lay with/review in hand all of them from canon/nikon/pentax/olympus/sony. they all offer different pro's/con's. if you don't know why you are only considering the two you mentioned it makes little sense not to compare all that are in your budget when making such a purchase..

One big difference is the canikon camp uses in lens IS meaning you have to buy it repeatedly with each lens for a premium over a canikon lens that does not have it. manual focus lenses will never gain the benefit of IS mounted to a canikon..

The oly/pentax/sony camp uses in-boby IS meaning you buy it once and it can be used with ANY lens attached to the camera, even manual focus lenses you might consider..

Don't be afraid to buy other than canikon as they usually offer more features/bang for the buck. the good news is there is no wrong answer and they are all worth considering..

Good luck..
