What is a good Digital Slr Camera to start photography ?

I’ve recently just taken an interest in photography and want to pursue it as a hobby. I’m wondering what’s a good starting Digital Slr camera? I know a friend whose into photography but his camera is like 1200$, and that’s without adding all his lenses and accessories…

For Christmas 2007 my husband gave me the Nikon D40, and I really love it. I think he was even able to get a “kit” that included the camera body, basic lens and an additional lens (and even a Camera Case). I think he spent around $500 to $600 for everything, including the insurance plan from Ritz Camera. If you shop for the D40 on eBay, you could probably find a new one or one in very good condition for maybe $200 to $300.

The other one I would suggest is the Canon Digital Rebel Xti. It is a great camera for a beginner and very comparable to the D40. I’ve shot some photos with a friend’s XTi, and the one difference I noticed between it and my camera is that on the “auto” setting the shutter seems to reset itself just a fraction of a second faster for the next shot.

Just a quick search on eBay returned the following:
Nikon D40: new from $390 and used from $199
Canon Digital Rebel XTi: new from $399 and used from $349

Hope this helps – and have fun with your new camera once you get it!
