i dont know which one to get im torn between the Canon 30d and the Nikon D200?
So toss a coin
No offence but we can't (or rather shouldn't) make this decision for you. We might be able to suggest which one (and which system... each camera is only one part of a large system) might be more suitable based on your requirements or priorities... but that's going to be difficult since you haven't told us what your requirements or priorities are.
CANON CANON CANON

i am a beginner i have been wanting a camera that takes great pictures with out knowing alot but i will be learning as i go and want a camera that i can as i learn use more of the manual settings and i have decided on these two due to the size and the sturdyness of them and i also like the 5 fps continuous shooting
Well you just have to look at my sig, .
I went to best buy today and felt both and i prefer the 30d's feel and the functionality seems to be better, although i have heard the colors on the d200 are a little richer and more vibrant, not sure if its true though. I couldnt tell a huge difference.
Currently it seems that the 30 d is "the" camera to have. But I personally would probably buy the D200. I'm mulling over that same decision in my head. Of course, I may end up buying a d50 instead and spend the extra cash on nicer lenses.
Go to a store that sells both, Hold them and determine which seems easier for you to use, including the ease of changing settings.
BTW, I'm a Canon user.
Get whatever you like there is no perfect camera for everyone and another Canon vs. Nikon shootout is not going to answer this for you.
I tell yeah, the 30D does feel good in your hands, I've felt it before - but I ultimately went with the D200.
Though honestly, the reason I went with the D200 is A. I already had a D50 B. Already had Nikon glass and C. I know the layout of the Nikon menu system like the back of my hand, the Canon seemed foreign to me.
Part of me wish I would have gone back in time and told myself to buy a Canon, since 20 years later their dSLRs will handle low light a lot better but meh, I get by.
Exactly what he said, but, BTW, I'm a Nikon user.
If we all came to a consensus and agreed on the same camera of one brand, the other brands would be out of business. For that matter, if we all came to a consensus on the same camera, that manufacturer would only make that one camera model and would most likely drop all R&D funding.
