First, let me say, I don't had/have any technical knowledge on photography/camera.
I've just bought a NIKON P90. before buying this I was confused to choose between P90 & Canon 1000D. I consulted with a friend of mine who is not a photographer but can handle movie camera a little bit. it's my bad luck that then I was not a member of this site. anyway, I know that any comparison between these 2 cameras is not possible as one is a compact & another is a DSLR (as u all know). I know I might missed many things but willing to know those things.
1> how much this P90 will help me to gather basic knowledge of Photography?
2> some benefits those I'll miss for not having Canon 1000D?
