Most beginner digital SLR cameras are in price range $500 +/- $100 with better ones (almost professional) reaching $1000 mark. I believe you wont be surprised to learn that there are just two major players in DSLR camera market, and I’m speaking of Canon and Nikon. Since I’m a proud owner of Canon camera I can recommend only Canon. But seriously speaking both are great cameras. If you are just starting into DSLR world – take some cheaper model under $500 no matter is it Canon or Nikon. You will love both of them.
