    Smile Good starter Digital SLR camera

    I am looking for a good starter Digital SLR camera, one that I can learn with and add to as I am learning.

    Is the Canon EOS 10D a good starter camera with growth and learning potential? I have been using a Panasonic point and shoot but I want to be able to do more.
    What should I expect to pay for this camera used?


    Thanks in advance

    I might go for the 20D instead, it's one notch higher, but it's a better camera. Ebay has some models around 400 beans if you get a good deal.

    I agree with Marko. In the long run you save money by getting a slightly better camera than one that you think might need since it stretches the time before you need to upgrade.

    The 20D is a great camera and very similar to the 30D which I have and can vouch for. Plus you'll still find great deals on a 20D.

    Hehe,
    I'm back.
    In a week I'll get my new camera : http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_se...p?product=1192

    Is it used, and I got it for $450 with 2 batteries, 2 lenses (Zuiko Digital ED 40-150 mm, F4.0-5.6 and Zuiko Digital 14-45mm, F3.5-5.6), a case and charger.

    Now I'll start to practice more about ISO, light etc etc

    I'm so happy.

    Default Even though I'm a canon shooter...

    Hello I am a Canon shooter and have been for a long time. I think the best entry level camera is a Nikon D200-D300. You can say enough about a water sealed body with a good price. Canon has not got that hint yet!!
