    what camera is right for me?

    I want to really start getting into photography, and i want a really good quality camera, but i am not looking to spend an insane amount of money (some get well over 1k right?)

    Can someone reccomend a camera priced pretty well thats good for a beginner, with room to grow with it if you will?

    thanks a lot

    i dont know what people think here, but i got a 7.1mp canon a70 for free, and its been great (though a 450 dollar or so camera if you buy it).

    its not like some of these professional shots on here, i dont think (havent used it too much), but you can control shutter speed etc which is nice for night shots.

    I would recommend an entry level digital SLR. SLR's allow you to use various different lenses depending on your subject and how you want to render it. A good place to start is at a local camera shop where you can get your hands on a few from different manufacturers to see which one "feels" best to you. Some are way more intuitive than others, but don't vary considerably when it comes to performance and capability.
