    I am looking at getting a new camera. I want one thats digital. I am pretty new to photography and have a kodak easy share Z885 that sucks, I bmx and take many pictures but they usually turn out blurry and for the ssequence shot i can only take like four pictures at a time. Since i am new i am not good at fiddling with the settings. I tried out a canon rebel xt and really liked it. I would also like a video feature on the camera . Post up!;)

    Nikon D5000 or D90 is good for photo and video

    If video is a must, I'd say Canon T1i just because I love Canon.

    5d mkII
    honestly. if video was actually a concern to me on a dslr, then that would be my only consideration.

    D90 is awesome if you're willing to hold a Nikon to see what you think. Could be that you prefer Canon, but before I drop the dough at least check them both out.

    whats your budget for the camera?
    do you have a seperate budget for a new lens?

    The only Rebel that does video is the T1i.
    The only other Canon that does video is the 5D MkII
    Reviews on the two are good.

    In the Nikons, I believe you have the D90 and the D5000. Reviews on the D90 are great, reviews on the D5000 suck

    i would like to keep the camera and lens under 1000. i know its a very small budget... so the 5D MkII is definatly not an option.

    With those two choices, I'd go with the T1i

    But must it be a dSLR? The Canon SX110 IS is pretty nice
