    I found these 3 cameras (secondhand) at the camera store, but I can't seem to figure out which one is good.

    They are: Canon 3000, Nikon F65, and Minolta 3xi.

    They all seem to have similar features and are the same price. I'm mainly doing landscape shots (but with people in it), and the occasional portrait.

    I'm just wondering if anyone had any experiences with these cameras before?

    Being new to photography, it seems like every camera looks the same to me... :confused:

    I'm sure they will all serve your purposes, but do you plan on making enlargements bigger than 8x10? If that is the case, you may want to consider Medium Format. Second hand cameras in that catagory are very reasonable these days.

    Camera is just a box which holds the film in it.

    It's all in the lenses.

    I'd also go with nikon or canon because they have decent digital bodies too, if you ever get swayed in that direction.
