I am very sure that every photographer or someone who wants to be a photographer will want to own a DSLR camera. However, it is a lot of money to buy one so which brand has the better value? I love to take pictures because a picture speaks a thousand words. Recently, my father bought me a CANON EOS 1000D in May and it has become a part of me ever since.However, the yaskter's sister got another DSLR camera today. The NIKON D5000.
The DSLR war challengers:
What have I got to say about these two cameras? Well, if you ask me which is better Nikon or Canon. All I have to say is the is really not much of a difference. However, because Canon EOS 1000D as compared to NIKON D5000 is a more for beginners DSLR. Hence, the price between the two is more than a length apart.
Canon EOS 1000D costs around RM1899 where as Nikon D5000 is approximately RM2799. Can you see the difference in digits? If you ask in terms of looks then there is two ways of judging between the two. First of all, the lens. Alright, even though I own the Canon but I have to admit that Nikon's lens is much nicer. On the other hand, Canon's body kit beats Nikon anytime.
Features? There are both about the same except that Nikon D5000 has a wider range of ISO compared to Canon EOS 1000D. However, is you prefer to take portraits and scenery then Nikon D5000 has better picture colour but if you want to capture speed and do 'freeze' pictures then Canon EOS 1000D is the obvious choice. As for me, I am not biased but because I love to take fast moving objects and 'freeze' water therefore I prefer Canon.
So, what do you think? I will continue to upload pictures taken with my Canon EOS 1000D but this time I will also link my sister's blog to let you see pictures taken with her Nikon D5000 and hopefully it will help you make a decision between the two DSLR cameras. The yakster is going to take more pictures and improve her photography skills because she now has another yakster at home who is going to take pictures too. The war has just begun.
