makakatipid ka pa sa lenses since di nagaautofocus yung d3000 sa non afs lenses :lol:
it would still be best if you tried both though :-D

PM'd you.  :evil:


yung 500D na nasa mid-range bracket eh ang baby brother ng Canon 7D (which is the hot high end-range canon DSLR right now) and in fairness naman eh di ko sya maicocompare sa Nikon D5000 which is like apples and oranges.. tama si dudeofdude na the D5000 share a lot with its "Kuya" Nikon D90 such as the HD Video capture (almost the same pixels) except na hindi "swivel LCD" ang D90 but ofcourse much advance ang features and controls ng D90.. not to mention the ISO.. pero sa video capture eh wala silang pinagkaiba..

so kung feel mo ang 500D eh go for it since mas prefer ko sya kesa sa D5000 na maganda nga with the swivel LCD pero mas nagiging "fragile" naman sya..

and Paulo mas maganda nga na brand new Canon 1000D nalang ang kunin mo at sure ako di ka magsisisi! heheheh
pustahan tayo after 6 months eh mag uupgrade ka! hehehe ibang klaseng GAS ang photography!

 :-D

Thanks for the info bro. Pao, incase mag upgrade ka , you know who to call.  :-D

@rockophoria: 500d is entry-level, 7d's baby bro is the 50d. the d5000 and d90 share the exact same sensor, they have the same ISO performance. i really wish i could have saved up a little more and got the d90 though, anglaking ginhawa ng lcd screen pati dedicated buttons sa taas ng d90. :-D

@turi: i pm'd you back at the other site :-D

ay oo nga I forgot.. may 50D pa  :lol:

in the case of the D5000 and D90 ISO range I kinda find the D90's ISO sensitivity more fluid specially with a prime lens in low light.. or baka hindi ko lang gaano nalaro ng husto ang D5000 since isang beses lang ako nakahawak nun..

and yes the controls of the D90 are the best feature nya and tama ka rin high-resolution ang LCD screen nya and syempre mas high end sya so meron syang in-body autofocus motor, both have live view though madalang ko gamitin yun.. most of the time sa video lang but sa snapshots kahit na overhead eh tinatantsa ko nalang since pag naka on ang live view ng D90 eh may split second delay bago pumalo ang shutter.. sinasara kasi muna nya ang live view bago mag expose ang sensor..

dyan sa mga instances na yan magagamit ng husto ang swivel-lcd feature ng D5000.. kahit anong angle!  :-D

d90 now at 54k.  :-o :-o :-o :-o :-o :-o

hehe yung benta kong D90 dati brand new din yun.. with 28-200mm lens 53k nabili yung body lang (45k) so naiwan sakin yung Sigma 28-200mm lens.. im still thinking if ill ship another D90 for myself or get the semi-DSLRs like the Panasonic Lumix LX-3 or the new popular Panasonic Lumix GF-1..

kaso yung price ng GF-1 eh sing-price na ng brand new D90 kit (with 18-105mm kit lens).. so napapaisip nanaman ako.. ang convenience lang ng semi-DSLRs eh handy sya and not to mention the vintage/old-skul camera looks nya.. hehehe

yun nga lang yung lens nya eh panasonic din ang gumagawa kaya mahal..











this type of cameras are gaining ground this days kasi mechanical shutter din sya para syang maliit ng DSLR minus the weight and bulk.. easily fits like a condom in your pocket  :-D

haay anghirap magdecide! sabi ko balik point and shoot na ako but nung makita ko itong GF1 eh parang the magic is back..

the form of a Point and Shoot with the capability and power of a DSLR..  :|

Oh my goodness!!! :-o Please, no. :lol: I have too much GAS. This DSLR cam is my last GAS for 2009.

Hey Joseph, kung may pera lang talaga ako yung D90 mo na kinuha ko eh, hehehe. Nakuha na ba yung D40 mo?

Thanks a lot for the help guys! I'l try both the D3000 & 1000D para mai-compare ko both.

Checking Kimstore. Lol.

Checking it as well. Tingin ko mas mura sa Hidalgo. Sa Kimstore may charge pa yung DSLR bag (+500) sa Henry's libre na.

Alala ko lang, a nurse friend of mine bought a D90 kit + a different kind of lens umabot sya ng 95k. Wow! Talk about GAS!

Joseph yung kaibigan ko (philmusic member: ihopethisnamecounts) may Panasonic Lumix FZ50 check mo yung mga shots nya dito: http://talk.philmusic.com/board/index.php/topic,161932.0.html

I think Nikon D90 na gamit nya ngayon eh.

yep nakita ko yan! astig diba? parang DSLR din ang kuha! hehehe kontrolado mo rin kasi ang settings and exposures nyang mga semi or bridge DSLRs eh.. and yung shutter sound nila "orig" kasi mechanical ang shutter nila na ang naririnig mo eh yung "Shlik!!" sound ng pumapalong shutter.. di katulad sa mga point and shoot camera na sensor na agad.. at peke yung shutter sound (literal na recorded sound)  :lol:

pero itong FZ50 eh DSLR type pa rin ang "form" nya kaya mejo bulky pa.. unlike yung GF1 na old-skul vintage camera type na kasya sa jacket pocket mo.. heheh

yep naunang nabili yung D40 kit ko bago yung D90 body  :-D

try mo rin yung D3000 pero ill bet mas magugustuhan mo ang 1000D heheh isa sa mga una mong paggagastusan onced may DSLR ka na eh tripod and a nice crumpler DSLR bag na hindi mukhang DSLR bag..

tapos pustahan tayo maglalaway ka na sa mga Macro, Hyperzoom at Prime lens!  :-D -- mapapabenta ka ng pedals mo

tapos susunod dyan yung SB-600 or SB-800 flash na tsaka IR shutter remote naku.. lalo na kapag madalas ka magtravel mauubos pera mo sa accesories..

Me likey! :-D But I think I've got my eyes set on the 1000D. How much does this unit cost?

naku paolo.. ang presyo nitong GF1 eh sing price ng D90 (47-50k) or 900-950 dollars.. grabe kaya napapaisip talaga ako..  :-(

Naku! Para palang D90 na talaga presyo yan.

Yeah, hihingi din ako ng opinions dun sa Henry's & itra-try ko both camera's. I'll also ask Kimstore if meron syang makukunan na brand new D40x or D60, hehehe.

Baka nga mauwi nako sa multieffects nito pag nag-enroll nako sa photoworldmanila :-( Gusto ko mag-focus sa macro photography :-D

yep ok yan! masyado na kasing gasgas ang portraiture, landscape at street photography (parang "sweet child" ng guns hehe  :evil:).. mas maganda yung maiba iba naman at makunan ang mga bagay na hindi parating nakikita..

madalang ang nagmamacro dahil unang una mahal ang lente at di mo magagamit na all around lens yun since sa macro lang sya magfofocus.. unlike yung mga zoom lens na pwede mo rin ipang-macro (pero limited macro hindi mo makukunan yung mata ng bangaw unlike sa macro lens talaga)

may menos gastos din na alternative sa macro lens.. bibili ka ng macro reverse ring adaptor.. (pero di ko sinubukan) yun yung maima-mount mo ng baligtad yung lens mo to make it "macro"  :-D

Update lang:

I finally decided to get the Canon 1000D, I was really torn between the 2 (D3000 & 1000D). But benta sakin yung live view eh. So yung 1000D na kinuha ko. Yung katabi ko nga na bumibili ng D3000 parang napa-isip din, hehehe. Bought it sa Kimstore sa St. Francis Sq. Sa tingin ko, iba yung presyo nila pag 'di mo pa nakikita yung sa multiply site nila. Kasi tinanong ako nung sales lady kung may appoinyment/reservation ba ako sa kanila eh. Sabi ko nakita ko sa multiply site nila 26,000 yung 1000D, tapos nagtinginan sila.. Hmmmmm..

Anyways, I'm happy naman na eh..
