canon rebel xt vs nikon d40

Postby Christina-BFPinMT » Fri Feb 08, 2008 1:01 pm

I'm getting ready to go to a digital SLR. I was wondering if someone could help me choose between the Canon 8 MP EOS Digital Rebel XT SLR Camera w/ 18-55 mm Lens and the Nikon 6.1 MP D40 Digital SLR Camera w/ 18-55mm Zoom Lens Kit.
I'm leaning towards the canon, because I have had a canon before, and because of the 8 megapixels. What are everyone else's opinions?

I have the Nikon D40 and love it!!! Did lots of reviews and all pointed towards this one. Honestly, unless you are blowing things up like poster size, you do not need anything more than the 6 Megapixels.....

Good point. I was wondering about that, if 6 megapixels was enough. I am pretty sure I am going with the Nixon D40. My b'day is coming up, so this will be on my list!!

That's what I was told (about not needing more then 6 mp). And I got a better deal on the D40 then the Canon.. can't beat that!! :):)
