Three great DSLR cameras with great prices.. Which one should I buy ?
Digitalreview.ca compared the Canon 350D with Nikon D50 and Nikon D70s and wrote:
“The Nikon D50 provides the most consistent and “best” straight out of camera results. The in-camera processing that occurs in the Nikon D50, in terms of sharpening and tone adjustments, produces images that are very pleasing to the eye when viewed straight out of the camera. Ideal for users who want to go directly to print without having to worry about software post processing in a computer.
The Canon Digital Rebel XT comes in a close second, however, the Rebel XT by default applies less in camera sharpening, which has a tendancy to make the images look a little softer. We did notice that even after post processing, the Canon Rebel XT images did not look as sharp as those from the Nikon D50, indicating that Nikon’s new AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED lens is a bit sharper than the Canon EF-S lens that comes in the Rebel XT kit. Nevertheless, the Canon Rebel XT produces very good image quality in its own right
In comparison, the images from the Nikon D70s have a tendancy to look a little flat and softer than those from the Nikon D50, when viewed straight out of the camera. Nikon has adopted a much more conservative approach to in-camera processing with the Nikon D70s, realizing that there are certain disadvantages as opposed to proper post processing with external software applications, such as Nikon Capture or Adobe Photoshop.
Bottom line, if you are looking for very good image quality overall and a user friendly camera system, you can not go wrong with either the Nikon D50 or the Canon Rebel XT DSLR kit package. “
