    Don't worry, no one was actually considering giving you a non professional camera. Let alone a professional one. lol

    Haha. Can I have some free stuff too?


    But seriously, your definition of a 'pro camera' is probably very different to most people's on here. We would call a pro camera something like a canon 1d mk4, which cost several thousand dollars (plus more thousands on lenses to match).

    You can get a used rebel xt or similar, which look to the untrianed eye like a 'pro camera', for a few hundred dollars with a kit lens.

    Do some research, but don't fall into the trap of starting a 'what camera should I buy' thread. It has been asked a million times so use the search button :)

    Asking for a free camera is a bit silly....

    But you can take pictures 'like a pro' with a semi-pro camera fairly cheap. Get a used D60 or D90 for 350-700 at KEH or any other used camera place.

    It's you photos that make you a 'pro' not your camera.
