Which camera? Rebel or d90

Postby dmac1175 » Fri Feb 11, 2011 9:27 am

I am just wanting some opinions from guys who know more about cameras than myself. I am interested in purchasing a high quality camera. I enjoy looking at the pics of waterfowl you guys put up. I have been on several hunts this year and found myself wising I had a nice camera. There were days where mallard were standing in goose decoys after duck season already closed, Several geese in flight coming in close, dog making nice retrieves, beautiful sunrises, heavy snowfalls, etc. You get the point. Anyway, my wife and I would like a camera to take these kind of shots as well as family gatherings and so on. We shopped some at Best Buy and seen the following cameras and want to know what you all think. Remember, we know nothing about it. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Canon EOS T2iD-SLR Camera w/18-55mm IS Lens. 18.0 megapixels, 3" live view, 3.7 per second frames, 100-6400 ISO range, 9 point auto focus. 899.99

or

Nikon D90 D- SLR Camera w/18-105mm IS Lens. 12.3 megapixels, 3" live view, 4.5 per second frames, 200-3200 ISO Range II Point Auto focus. 1049.99

What do you think?

Why not consider the Sony A55 16.2 meg 10 frame/sec and full HD video with the 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 lens and high ISO and save money on some lens Voted camera of the year by some magazines

Check Adorama (online) or B&H Photo (online also) and you might get a better price on the kit. That lens will be good for sunrises, senics, and photos of friends. Then save up and buy a GOOD QUALITY xx-300 mm lens or if you have full pockets a 100-400mm L lens.

either camera is a good buy. the nikon package could probably get you by with the 18-105mm lense longer than an 18-55mm. with the 18-55mm you'll want a longer lense right away. use the 18-105 to learn the basics before adding a xx-300mm to your collection
