So Wednesday night when a friend was at VBS with her Nikon D80, I was able to try it out. Liked it. I’d held one in the store before. And a friend in Clinton had had one and I snapped a few pics one time with theirs too. But this was the first time I was actually able to walk around with one for a bit. It further fueled my itch to get a DSLR soon.

But for some reason I keep looking at the Canon’s more. I really don’t think there’s a bad decision to be made. But the Canon 40D is where my heart is I think. It’s a touch heavier/bulkier than the Nikon D80, but is a step above better camera too I think.

If/when I take the dive, it will be with a bit of financial commitment, but I think I’m going to love it. I can spend hours on Flickr if I’m not careful. And I’ve found a few photography forums too.  Great resources, all of them. And some great places to show off your work and get help and critiques .
