Nikon or Canon
Ok, so we can’t get out of Bangkok (YET)!
The only thing left to do is make the present bearable. It’s time to toss the old pocket digital camera and buy something we can actually take decent photos with, apart from Ake’s archaic, but exceptionally well kept manual Nikon.
We've actually decided to make December the longest holiday ever (now, you know how tired we are!) and we might as well have good photos of it.

So, it’s between Canon 350D http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos350d/ or
Nikon D70 http://www.dpreview.com/news/0504/05042003nikond70s.asp
We’re kind of leaning towards Canon, although we ARE Nikon fans, but that 8 mega pixel deal sounds too good.
Any suggestions? It’s gotta be today, cause tomorrow we’re getting it! Shoot! :)

You should go in a shop and see what you like also in hand. 350D is lighter with 100g so you can easy add the battery grip to it.

Well, it's gonna be decided at the shop.
Our promotion doesn't include the wide angle lens, but we'll get those in a month or so.
I love the colors of Nikon, but Canon does better with details, sooo..
Carmen needs to play it for a while before upgrading any further!
