    Both of those cameas are very basic entry-level cameras and in a year or so you may well find them limiting your photography by being so basic. Though I shoot Nikon gear, of the 2 I'd recommend the 1000d.

    However, since you want to keep the camera a long time I would say take a hard look at the Nikon D90. It is a top of the heap entry-level camera and it will take longer for you to outgrow the cameras capabilities.

    Okay I will consider D90 as well, But do you think it'll be user-friendly for me?

    I hear an extremely good entry-level DSLR is the Canon Rebel T1i. I haven't actually gotten to mess with it, but I will let you know tomorrow what I think (my dad ordered it and it will be here tomorrow).

    The d90 will be plenty user friendly. If you wanted there are plenty of preset auto modes as well as the more advanced manual modes. It is a great camera to learn with and also do serious work. It is good at higher ISOs too. It is a great cam for the money. GL
