Do you find the GTX260 to be that much better than the 4850? And is that a stock HSF I see in there??

Nikon Guide - An in depth guide on Nikon systems, lenses, accessories and such. I'd write/start this one, but one would be needed for Canon, Sony, Olympus, Lecia, etc.

Thoughts?

I second these great ideas, all of them can contribute to beginner SLR users to learn alot from specific topics and how to take full use of their camera.

Also, if it could fit in some specific place, an accessory information thread/guide, including filters, tripods, external flash units, etc... A place where people that own determined accessories could share information about it. Just my

Has anyone looked into the soon to be released Panasonic 4/3" GH1? It should blow the doors off the D90 and 5D in terms of video. It will do 24fps 1080p and let you manually control aperture and focus. They also enabled their face tracking AF for video. And it seems it will be a great 12MP still camera. Swivel screen!

Hey guys, I'm thinking about jumping into the DSLR world. I've had many digital cameras, all ~$200 cameras, and I've never been happy with the quality of my pictures. it seems like I need to hold the camera completely steady for a good 2 seconds or else I'd get a blurry picture.

I'll have some money soon and was considering this. Opinions? Is the lense that it comes with okay, or would I be better off buying a body and lense seperately?

As for what I'll be taking pictures of, problably a little bit of everything. I used to play Paintball, and still have many friends that do, so I may start going and taking pictures at tournaments. I'd like to start taking some nature pictures too. and of course random shots of friends now and then...basically a bit of everything.

I have not read any guides or stickys yet, I'm going to search for them now, just figured I'd make a post first and introduce myself.

It's an exciting camera just for the size. It has no mirror box (only electronic viewfinder and LCD viewer) so it's really small, even smaller than Olympus cameras. The problem with it is that it's absurdly expensive and it uses a new mount, the Micro Four Thirds mount, which means that there are only a few lenses and to use regular 4/3 lenses, it requires an adapter.

But yeah, it supposedly has the best live view out there and the best LCD put on a DSLR. It's also even reasonably fast, but the only thing bad about the camera is it's sub par high ISO noise, which is something that Panasonic has struggled with on all their cameras, DSLR and point-and-shoot alike.

And I would be pissed if I had bought the G1, since Panasonic just released the GH1 (added HD video).

The D60 is a fine body and it's kit lens is one of the best out there. Others to consider in that price range are the Nikon D40, Canon XSi and Canon XS.

Yea, but they have a few lenses that should cover you very well. I love the size thing though at the same time I have big hands so I'd have to feel it first. D90's are a tad too small for me but big enough.

Do you know anything about the D400?
