Cap Nikon Canon

Cap Nikon Canon
Buying a Canon Rebel XTi or Nikon D40x-How do little things compare? Battery life, ease of data transfer, etc.

I know the story with megapixels, etc. etc. But after I buy one of these, what will I wish I had known beforehand? Will I discover that one or the other isn’t very durable? Is hard to clean? Takes forever and is complicated to upload data to a computer? The battery dies quickly, or takes forever to charge? The menu is unnavigable? The accessories are expensive? Key accessories are not widely available? The lens cap falls off easily?

When you get into this level of DSLR’s they are comprable when it comes to battery life, since they both use state of the art Li-ion batteries. Charging time is about 3 hours for both when first charging, less when recharging depending upon how much charge is left in the battery.

Both are duable … they are made by the two leaders suppying camera systems to the professionals. For this reason lenses are available everywhere professional camera systems are sold as well as litterally millions of good used cameras and lenses made by them.

There seems to be an issue with Canon’s in that they are not directly accessable by the computer as a removable drive, so the Canon software has to be installed on the computer being used in order to access the image files however, a simple card reader solves that problem for unually under $10.

The length of time it takes image files to move from the memory card to the computer depends mostly on the number and size of the image files on it. Both use USB 2.0 connection ports.

For the absolute best test to see which one is the best for your style of shooting, you might want to do this: Go into a camera store that sells both brands and hold both in your hands … practice using them.

* Which is the easiest for you to use?
* Which menu is the easiest for you to navigate and make crucial changes while shooting.
* Which do you find the easiest to adjust aperture and shutter speeds while looking through the viewfinder … without having to remove your eye from it. (Action and sports photographers need this feature).

Lens choice really depends upon the type photography you tend to shoot. You will need to buy what you want at the time of purchase.

You will need wide angle lenses for shooting landscapes and architectural subjects, telephoto for shooting wildlife and sports or action photography and of course a general lens for shooting most of your images.

Choose the lens or lenses which will best provide you with the shots you tend to shoot

If you do not have any experience with shooting a 35mm SLR, you may want to attend a photo class and learn how to compose, expose, develop and print your own images. It is this experience which will get you into the magic of photography in a big way and prevent the many frustrations that befall new photographers.
