    Nikon d70s or Canon Rebel XT Poll!

    Just out of curiousity, I'm starting this poll, asking people whether they would/do prefer the Nikon d70s or Canon Rebel XT over one another.

    PLEASE STATE WHY YOU CHOSE YOUR CHOICE

    EDIT: THIS IS NOT A PREFERENCE OF COMPANIES!!

    EDIT: opps, forgot to make the poll...umm...moderators if you can add one please? 1-Canon Rebel XT 2-Nikon d70s
    Nope. Been there done that. Doesn't need to be restated. Serves no purpose. People like Canon... people like Nikon... people like Pentax...People like Olympus... people like Konica Minolta... and people start surveys.

    Try being in one of the 5 ownership groups and enjoy photography, instead of taking meaningless surveys.

    If this is about personal preference then I'm going for the Nikon. Electronically they're both capable cameras - but I prefer the Nikons size and weight.

    And will I criticise a Canon owner for picking Canon? hell no. I will not be drawn into the same tired sort of debate as happened with the ATI / nVidia graphics card war.

    Umm...wtf?

    First off, I refuse to be a photographer who shuns other companies, thats just ridiculous, very childish.


    Second, I wasn't even asking for a company preferance, I was asking for individual preferences for which CAMERA they would like to have better, not which COMPANYs camera......

    Obviously you people are not about the technology, more about the company. Well grow up, corporations like Nikon, Canon, who ever, DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU INDIVIDUALLY, THEY CARE ABOUT YOUR $$$. So stop feeling so special.


    I'm honestly disappointed here.

    Yeah. Sorry you took offense. I'm not a big fan of the E-300 and have a tough time understanding the rationale behind the design, but that's just me.

    The (???) may have been a little crass, so I have edited it out.

    Glad you like the Oly.

    Sorry for your disappointment.

    I have come to dislike poles, concerning Canon vs. Nikon, as it has a tendacy to polerize, leading to disagreements, which seem to grow to insults. And while this one may have started with the best of intentions there really is nothing to be gained.

    Thank you very much for the explanation George, no more disappointment in you now from me. Ur explanation of why u don't like polls makes alot of sense.

    it's perfectly fine. i was just messing around.

    a lot of people aren't fans of the E-300 looks, but i think it is a very "functional-ugly". i find that my nose doesn't get "smushed" by the LCD when looking at the viewfinder and is much easier keeping the other eye on the subject when shooting something more dangerous such as motor racing or dangerous animals.

    the high ISO "problem" exists though. but if i expose it nicely, i find the photos are easy to fix and clean up in PP, especially when i shoot RAW. and if for some reason the photo is way underexposed and there is too much noise, i can always make it a B+W and make the noise look like i added it on there on purpose
