              Hi Ali, have you seen the comparison of the P7000 vs 1000D?

              They're two very different cameras. I'd recommend you got for an entry level DSLR like the 1000D if you want to learn about photography, if image quality is important to you, and if you have the $ to spend on a few lenses.

              I'd recommend a pro digicam like the P7000 if ease and convenience is important to you. The P7000 will be much easier to bring with you, especially if you had more than one lens for the 1000D. However, the P7000 won't get nearly as good image quality as the 1000D, mostly because its sensor is 7x smaller.

              hey guys, i am planning to buy a camera, and after doing much research i have come down to a conclusion to either buy a nikon p7000 or a canon 1000d, can you guys please suggest which one would be a good camera to have?

              Thanks for pointing that out Khurram, we'll correct that, and quote the continuous JPEG speed for both.

              Hey, i just want to make a correction in your above article about Canon 1100 D vs 1000D. continious shooting spped of 1100D is a bit faster than Canon 1000D i.e. 2fps vs 1.5fps. You compared 1100 Raw with Canon 1000d JPEG.
              In both the models, the JPEGs continious spped is same i.e. 3fps.
