    Hey people. I am new to this photography thing, So I'm wondering the cheapest dslr camera. I don't care about image quality, Just the cheapest.

    I want to try it put before I put lots of money into it.

    You can pick up a used Nikon D40 for around $350.

    $350 is about as cheap as I've seen. You may get lucky and find one cheaper on eBay, but you'll have to watch the auctions like a hawk.

    basically the cheapest you'll find will probably be the Original Rebel 300d (or nikon's equivalent) the 350d from Canon I've seen go in the $250 range.

    yes, that is signified by the d at the end of the numbers. The XSI is 3 generations newer than the 300d (otherwise just called the digital rebel I think)

    It's old technology, but it is an SLR, and it will work.

    Some prices may seem like highway robbery, but if you research how much a camera went for new you might think again. Ebay is your best bet. There is no telling how much someone is going to sell a used camera for. There could be a $100 difference between 2 identical models. If prices are too high then you need to wait til one becomes available in your price range. Buy a used camera is like buying a used car. There are many things that effect its resale value.

    Yeah. I just don't understand the point of a $7000 camera, How much could be diffrent on a $1000 camera.

    I know ebays my best bet, But what model.

    I was lookin at the D40, can get it around 350, with lenses.
