I am still want to know about which one is best digital camera for my birthday and I can save it up with these money for myself. I am still want you make training me how I can use with the digital camera. Which one is used with D70 like same as Andrew Hunt, right? He already got it with his new camera. If you would like have any question about of me and I can upload with their pics into the a.net with the digital camera and need to make retraining for me. Talk ya later!

I'd agree with Peter & Gary, if you've got the Nikon compatible lenses already then you may as well stick with the D70.
I used to have Nikon gear but when I chose to go digital there were no affordable DSLR bodies around. I ended up selling it all on e-bay and buying into the Canon format. That said, two weeks after I bought the D30 Canon announced the 300D !!
As for training to use it... I'm sure we're all happy to help out as much as we can but really the best advice I can give right now is to read up as much as you can about the various subjects that are concerning you but more importantly take lots and lots of shots and have fun experimenting with it. Just keep reminding yourself that you're no longer having to pay for either the film or the developing!!!

Like what the others say, I would go for the D70. If you can, go to a camera shop to test one out, you will be impressed! I recently got to play around with one and had very good impressions (Build quality is better than the EOS-300D) I already have a Nikon N60 myself and that's why I am looking at Nikon's D-SLR range instead of Canon's.

The same happened with me, except that the 300D was already announced and I even ordered it, but due to the delivery delays, I decided to go instead for the second hand D30. And I think I did the right choice.
If you think you want also to upgrade your lenses, you can still determine to pick a Canon instead of Nikon. If the D70 would have been around the time I changed my SLR into DSLR, I would have stayed there with Nikon.
Personally I think the D70 would be better for you than the 300D. Another question is, what kind of lenses you want to have in the future and how much you can afford on them.
