Looking around for an older, used DSLR camera


Years ago I use to be  extensively into 35mm photography. Having setup my own dark room I use to develop my own film. Typically use to spend around $500.00 for a SLR 35mm camera such as a Nikon F2 and use to own a couple of  vintage 35mm M series Leicas with hand crafted lenses.

Being  much younger back in the 70's I  use to go on photography expeditions,  sometimes with a friend who use to also carry a large format film camera and sometimes a box camera with tripod. We use to shoot various types of subjects including different types of building architectures dating back to the 1700's.

Anyway  I'm  currently looking around for a used DSLR for around a hundred dollars (+/-) or so.

I've found some older DSLR some that have been around 10 years or so.

Such as Nikon D50, Nikon D70, Sony Alpha a100, CANON EOS 7D, 10D, Pentax K10, etc.

Any suggestions, recommendations?

I also have looked at various shock resistant digital point and shoot cameras however I'm currently focused on older DSLR's, where I can switch to another lens and handled similar to my  35mm film SLR's that I use to carry around.

Canon EOS 10D Canon EOS 7D Nikon Coolpix A100 Nikon D50 Nikon D70
