The 450d is better.
#2
Yeah and far more expensive :roll: - i've heard a rolls royce is better than a mondeo as well.

Actually if you knew your camera the D40 will actually give better out of camera results than the 450D....the 450D excels when shot in RAW and PP'd afterwards.

This has been posted on several occasions over the last few months, the cheapest price being £207 after cashback.
Just remember if you do buy from Amazon at this price and they do lower the price then you can ask for the difference back (within 30 days), if you ask twice they refund the difference twice. So I bought this kit for £267.21, the price lowered to £247.95, so as they refunded the difference twice and I got the cashback of £40 and £39.50 less a £2.50 free voucher I actually only paid £185.21, a real bargain!

Nikon D60 with not standard, but VR Lens (!) - only £311 after £60 cashback (same website) or ring up PCWorld and ask to pricematch + 10% and get it even cheaper.

With Canon Cashback the 450d Kit is only £398!
Not a logical comparison though.

Good for you - enjoy filling your cards / hard drives and then the pp'ing afterwards.

If you doing high end stuff then RAW is great, for every day stuff probably a bit ott....better to get a camera that gives you better out of cam results.....that'll be a D40 then.

so i take it from the heat, this is not a good deal?

Don't fall into the trap of deciding on a DSLR by just considering the price and features of a particular model. Because once you have bought into a system, you are committed to this make and a change to another make would be an expensive option.Decide which system you want to go with first by looking at the makers range and what lenses and accessories each offers. Once you have decided on the make, look for the model which suits your budget

The d40 doesnt even have AF in the lens. Raw is better, if you got loads of hds space on your pc, considering a1tb hdd is like 97 quid, then there is no problem. You can do sooo much more stuff with raw. I think the jpeg in the 450d is better than the d40. I was going to get the d40 but the lack of features blew it for me.

No, it's definately a good deal. It's not quite as good as the deal a few weeks ago but it's still cheaper then when I bought mine 2 months ago, and I got the best deal around at the time. It's one of the cheapest DSLRs around, so it's not going to be the best, but for the price it's amazing and perfect for most people looking for a first DSLR who don't expect to be buying loads of extra lenses as they are a bit more expensive for Nikons and the kit lens is better than most if not all budget DSLRs.

I think you should have researched harder my friend - i've been into photography for 20years and am not in the slighest bit restricted by the D40 :thumbsup:

Lack of features.....yeah right maybe for David Bailey :roll:....don't believe the hype.

I sort of agree with the last point regarding the D40 being useable by experienced photographers. It represents excellent value although there are better specified cameras for not too much more money. However there are some people who know little get hung up on specification comparison and cite features they are unlikely to use. However one feature missing from a D40 I use a lot on my DSLR is the top panel LCD display...and the lack of AF motor restricts the range and potentially increases the price of lenses. More advanced cameras tend to have the most important buttons dedicated on camera whereas some cheaper cameras bury features in the menus making it fiddly and slower to operate. Depends on what the camera is being used for how much difference this makes.

If you are poor, get this, if your are rich get the 450d.

I'm not poor but I got the D40 cos in everyday situations its as good as most and it is smaller and handles better than the canon for me. I did look at the 400/450 but I want small if I'm lugging my kit around. I know from experience and owning Canon film cameras, big stuff gets left at home.

LCD panel on the top? I really don't see what difference this makes? I've never had a problem looking at the display on the back of the camera.
Settings in the menu instead of a dedicated button? I don't see pressing a couple of buttons to get to the setting you want in less than a second as a problem either?
I have the 50mm f1.8 for my D40 which means manual focus for that lens. There aren't that many situations where I would be using that lens and it causes a problem having to manually focus. In photography terms auto focus is only a recent invention, and quite a few very good photographers managed without it for 100 years! :) You don't have to buy lenses that won't auto focus on the D40 either (getting the 50mm f1.8 knowing it would only focus manually was my choice), as there are always other alternatives from several manufacturers. ;-)
