    going on a trip to china for 2 weeks soon..

    was planning on buying a nikon d40 for $525 from buydig.com (i wanted to spend as little as possible for a decent dslr, definately didnt want to spend 600 or 700+ for a new camera)

    but im not sure if i would really use a dslr after the trip :o

    so im thinking if i should just get a xti from costco and then after the trip return it :o

    :noes: :noes:

    if you're not going to use it when you get back then odds are you dont know enough about it to use it in anything other than auto mode while you're gone. in that case, just buy a decent p&s and be done with it

    If you dont know how to use one now, you are going to be disappointed with your pictures. Slr has a learning curve, and you do not want to be learning it while the shots are getting away from you.

    Just get a P&S

    I took a dslr and 2 lenses with me on a tour of China. I started to hate photography about half way into the trip. :rofl:

    buying returning is pretty shitty, and if you can't afford it, think about what would happen if it doesn't come back with you

    once you use one, you'll want to keep it up and won't be able to go back

    so you want to get the XTi.. return it.. and eventually get a shittier camera? the D40? lol.

    i don't see the logic.

    buy a disposable and be done with it
