    I think everyone could debate this to the death of it. Really, just try each out and see which you prefer in my opinion

    But just for the record.. Canon is better.;)

    Thanks Peanuts, but there is no chance for me to check it out...I've requested a friend to send it from abroad and he is not an expert in this field. He just said me to give him the model no. and then he'll try to find that for me and send!

    Unfortunately, we can't pick the camera for you. We can only give you recommendations.

    Go into a shop and pick up the following cameras, read their specs and fit one to your budget.
    Canon - 300D, 350D(new model of 300D), 20D, 10D, 1D
    Nikon - D50, D70, D70s(new model of D70),..... and I dunno what comes after that in the nikon range.... coz I'm a canon girl.

    What is the current system that you have? If it is Canon, you have the option of choosing between 20D or the 350D. If its Nikon, D50 or D70s. The said models have happy users. Nikon just released their D200. You might also want to check it out too.

    Detailed reviews on these bodies can be found at dpreview.com

    What are you planning to shoot?
    What is your budget?
    Do you have any lenses already?
    What experience do you have in photography?

    Ahhh wow you're in bangladesh! that's awesome.

    One thing to consider that you won't be able to tell really easily from a spec sheet is the weight of each camera.

    When I bought my camera, I was trying to decide between the Canon 350D and the Nikon D70s. The nikon is about 100g heavier than the canon I think from memory, but that 100g adds up to a lot affter you've been carrying it around all day. And the sheer size of the nikon was a huge turn off for me. I want to be able to carry my camera around and not be worried about knocking half the crowd over when I turn around.

    ^very important. im guessing by 'professional-level' you mean top of the line. if so, go for the canon 1dsMkII or the nikon d2x. Out of those two, the 1dsMkII is the better one IMO. Of course it is around 7k USD, so that might pose a problem. Mid-range dSLRS are very good, and many 'professionals' use them (although that doesnt really matter). For mid-range, check out the canon 20d or the brand new nikon d200. the canon is around $1300 from most places (you can get it for less) and the nikon is around $1500 i believe, or $1800, I forget. If money is more of an issue, look at the nikon d70s or the canon 350d. Both are excellent cameras. The 350d is smaller, and a little cheaper, but the d70s is a more professional camera. Both you can get for under 1000 USD. If you just want something cheap but nice, go for the nikon d50 or the canon 300d. It seems a little pointless to get the 300d though, since it's only a little bit less than the 350d, which is much better.

    that might narrow it down a little tiny bit, but what you are planning to use the camera for is very important in choosing the right one.
