Dear all Merry Christmas to all of you I have been discussing the possibilities of buying a SLR camera within $500 and so far the news are not good. They say that SLR can't be bought with this range. I wan't to learn photography but I can't go with too expensive buying. I have no idea what camera could be bought with this low range, but I do hope there could be some options which would enable me to start my learning curve. I have seen some encouraging postings and they say good photography does not rely 100% only on equipment, what really matters is your eye and how you see the objects. Keeping this theory in mind, tell me some good digital camera which could serve my purpose. I am in Pakistan so cant buy anything from any online site due to risks involved.
