I'm popping over from the digital scrapbooking board. Hope that's okay! Right now, I just have a p & s Fugifilm Finepix F20, but I'm in the market for a DSLR -- preferably not too expensive. So.....whatcha got?

Im a canon girl......the rebel series is a great starting point.....and range in price from around $400 to around $1000 depending on what features you desire.

Entry level I wouldn't even consider a Nikon. They don't have autofocus in the bodies so the lenses are limited.
Canon is the way to go for entry level.
Nikon is the way to go for higher up though. I sure wish I'd switched before I bought my 5D mark 2s!

I think that if you could find a gently used Nikon D70/80/90 you would be happy!

But I always say to go into a store and hold the cameras... see what fits your hands best!

I also agree with the entry level canon, that's what I have went with and have to say I am very pleased. It's easy enough while I am learning and good enough that there hasn't been a lot that I can't do with it. My biggest complaint would be that it doesn't do great in low light, right now though it isn't a big issue. I do plan to upgrade at some point but if for some odd reason I couldn't, I would have no complaints about it.

I agree that the rebel series is a good way to start, but I have also heard great things about Nikon, just try going to a store like Kim said and see how you feel holding them both!
