The most popular entry level DSLR cameras are the Canon 350D and the Nikon D50, D70.
Here is a side-by-side look at their specifications:
Notice that there are links (in green) to reviews of the cameras.
Notice that right under the red stars are links to "Owner's Opinions".
Canon and Nikon produce excellent DSLR cameras and owners are very loyal to the brand that they own.
I'd like to get more into photography than I am. I purchased a Panosonic DMC-FZ20 about ... a year or two ago. It's a good little camera, but I've gotten to the point that I'd like to have a camera that I can switch lenses with.
As I don't know how to develop my own film, I'd really prefer a digital camera (also because I already have several memory cards FOR a digital camera).
As for a price range (whether including a lense or not isn't really significant, I realize that a camera that comes with no lense is cheaper than one that comes with a lense) I won't be wanting to spend more than $1200 (though anything under $1000 would be wonderful!)
So, what would you guys suggest as being good?
(other than Panasonics - I've learned a few things about that company's policy with their cameras that I'm not too fond of)
