Fuji Canon Nikon
Nikon D40x or Canon Eos 400D?

I’m looking for a good entry-level Dslr Camera. I want to get into shooting landscapes, nature scenes, but also stuff like macros, cars, and fast sports like horse racing (where you’d need a fairly fast shutter speed). I currently have a Fuji Finepix A340 that’s a few years old, so am quite new to the DSLR scene. I’ve always been a Nikon fan, but I’ve heard good reviews about the Canon 400D as well, so I’m trying to determine which camera would be best for me.

Thanks in advance! I’ve tried to provide the type of photos I’d be looking to shoot in case that helps.

I think you would find both to be very good cameras. I’d suggest two things to you:

First, go to a Wolf camera or Circuit City and pick up the cameras and see how they feel in your hands. The D-40 felt small to me. I haven’t tried the Canon. Make sure the camera feels good in your hands

Second: Consider getting a slightly used Canon or Nikon. I bought a used Nikon D-70s after the original owner upgraded to the D-80. Therefore, I got the camera body I wanted for half price. I put the savings in glassware. Nikon and Canon both have good glassware.

As you try to decide what you want to do, make a table showing the kinds of pictures you want to take, what lens you will need to take those pictures and then start adding up the cost of the camera body and lenses you will need. As you consider lenses, consider also that in the future you might decide to upgrade the camera body. Will your lens collection adapt to the new body?

As for me I bought a Nikon 18-200 VR lens. I paid a premium; It is a very expensive lens but everything I read about it indicated it would take care of 90% of my needs. My used D-70s and that lens might have cost me less than a D-80 and several lenses. We’ll see.

When you get into DSLR, you need to take into consideration your investment in lenses as well as the camera body.

go to dpreview.com for in-depth reviews of these cameras as well as any other. I invite you to email me if you want to talk further but I am not a professional, just a hobbyist.
