Looking to get started with photography, intro DSLR?
May 21, 2012

Hi all,

I'm looking to get started with photography and have been searching craigslist for DSLRs.

What's a good intro level camera? I'd like to have some video capabilities but that's not my primary concern. My maximum budget is probably around ~$600 but I'd like to keep it around $500.

Any recommendations? I've been looking at the canon T3/T3i and Nikon d3100/5000 but only because those seem the most popular. I'm not really sure what to look for in a camera body.

And since I'm buying this used to save on costs, is there anything I should test for when I meet up with the seller to ensure it's not broken?

Any help?


Canon EOS 1100D (EOS Rebel T3 / EOS Kiss X50) Nikon D3100
