The Canon comparison with the D3000 is the 1000D. The 500D higher model which is capable of video. The 450D is an old model already albeit still able, you can get these pre-owned. the D60 is also an older model and pre-owned units will be available already as well. Depends on what you plan to use the camera for and your budget really.

I agree! It really depends on your budget and purpose. Of the more recent models, I would suggest the Nikon D60, Nikon D90, and Canon 500d. :)

If you're going the Nikon way, skip the D3000/D60 and just get the D90 for its motorized body, it will give you a variety of lenses to choose from unlike in a non-motorized body where you are almost required to use only AF-S lenses for the lenses to autofocus.
The only place where success comes before work is in a dictionary.  :evil5:

500d, simply because it's the latest gen dslr by canon for amateurs

i had a 450d last year, the pictures turned out good. my friends were telling me to get nikon because it's cheaper. the canon dslr's for amateur photographers is a good camera to start with

around how much would a preowned canon 450D cost? i've been wanting to buy one.  :)

err.. I think Olympus' DSLRs can't handle noise that well compared to its competitors.

i ended up getting a 500D from canon. it works well for newbies like me and it does great shots even when you use the creative modes. it does HD videos as well. thanks for the tips in buying entry level DSLR's guys. i'm happy with what i have right now  :thumbsup:

yup olympus can't hold up that well with regard to noise, it's one of the kinks of the system.
one has to go the hard route and really learn stuff about the camera.

 i've taken care of the noise issues naman.
