what to choose?

i’ve been considering buying a digital camera. actually, its not just a digital camera. right now i am considering a dslr. yup, it’s quite expensive but i’m sure it will be all worth it since i am a self-confess souvenir/ photo addict.

 but i guess this idea has somewhat brought me a new dilemma. now i’m torn between choosing which brand and model to buy. i’ve search the net and i had trimmed down my options. now, i’m torn between nikon d60 and canon eos450d.
