So currently I'm shooting with a Nikon D40. I've had it for just over a year now but I have been starting to come to the conclusion its just not enough camera for me. I want to do more indoor shooting without a flash and the ISO on the D40 and the noise aren't working real well for me. I just came back from a family function yesterday and a quite a few photos just were not usable because the noise was too much and I do not have any noise reduction software. Onto the D90 and D300 though. I am debating what camera is worth it for me to get. The D90's HD Video is cool but I'm not sure how often I would use it though. I have been researching the 2 cameras and a lot of things I have read have compared the 2 and I'm just not sure if I want to spend that much more to get the D300 over the D90. Any thing you guys can lend to help me decide? I won't be making the purchase until after the New Years.
