Ive been lurking around these forums for a little while now and finally decided to sign up. Im very close to my first real digital camera purchase and was just looking for a little insight. I used to shoot with a 35mm SLR for about 6 months and loved it. Money got tight, had to sell it, but have still been into photography even without the camera. I feel the more sensible option now is to get a digital camera or DSLR for permanent. I really really want a Digital Rebel but it would still require a couple more weeks of money saving while I could buy a Nikon Coolpix 5700 right now. I know I should hold out but that buying on impulse is really getting to me. Basically I just want you guys to reinforce my decision to hold out for the Digi Reb. Please!
