Photography: I want to purchase a Digital SLR


#1

I'm looking at purchasing my first DSLR camera. I have been involved with photography on a digital 6mp compact cam for quite some time now. I am doing my majors in film production, so i would be using it for educational purposes (photography)

I am thinking for purchasing it from USA and my budget is restricted at $400. Which camera do you suggest in this budget.?

canon digital rebel XT

Canon Rebel XT is very good camera , though I doubt you will find a deal under 400$ , its good models are in range of 800 to 1000$.

In general for brand go for Canon or Nikon , Nikon D40 is a good camera and will be around your target range.

Before deciding on any model do some research on internet according to your needs, do read reviews.

Check out Circuitcity or similar places for good deals.
