    Im not sure what camera is better.
    I am drawn to both for each ones features.
    I do however like the fact that then rebel is an SLR camera.
    Hmmm what to do??
    What do you think about the cameras & what is really a better camera.
    I hear great things about both.

    Does the Rebel have a dedicated flash or is it not dedicated?

    I like my Canon 300D because it has a BUNCh of available lenses and
    options for it. And it takes CF cards as well.

    Yes, it has built in flash, but you control when it flashes, just as
    in your other post. But I have an external flash as well that works

  3. What do YOU want to do with your photography? What subjects? What taking
    circumstances? I manage well without a DSLR camera (I used to own an SLR)
    using the Nikon 8400 for wide-angle and the Panasonic FZ5 for extreme
    telephoto. What is your main output medium - the screen or prints - and
    if print, what size?

    Plus with Nikon, you're stuck with the lense that comes with it.

    The DSLR will certainly be better. It will be bigger & more akward &
    lead you into more manual settings and screwing up shots because you
    forgot to check the settings too. And it will tempt you to spend your
    money on fancy lenses. And you will be less likely to take it with you
    and you will miss some opportunities and eventually spend even more
    money on a pocket P&S to compensate.

    The descision is yours.
