Getting a New Digital SLR

4 posts in this topic

Hello. I am looking for info on your thoughts of a good digital slr

her friend recommended the new canon Rebel T1i, but I am not sure if I want to spend $900 and we are not pro's by any means. Looking to spend around $600 or less.

Thanks

It might depend a little about what your plans for the camera are. What types of photography are you planning to do?

Bascially any DSLR will take a better photograph than a P&S but if $600 is all you want to spend it might be tough. Keep in mind that you might want a couple of lenses.

I'm a Nikon guy but its up to you. Nikon, Canon and several other companies make fine DSLRs. You could buy a Nikon D40 with a 18-55mm lens for $399 on Amazon. Its a little bit of an older camera and its 6 MP, but it will take a great picture. You can get a D5000 for $775 on Amazon with a 18-55mm VR lens. The D5000 is brand new, does HD video and has probably the best sensor for the price.

What ever camera you buy, if you want more zoom than that, you'll have to buy an extra lens, so you'll want to factor that. You can always buy additional lenses later though. Depends on what your using it for.
