Hey all, first post here. I'm looking for a digital camera under 500 dollars, with a decent amount of manual controls. I'm utterly befuddled as to what to buy, I tried the search function and it was too much information to handle. I know my way around a video camera, with a few years of experience with a canon gl 2 and a few other semi pro cameras. I'd really like to try my hand at photography, I've been much better at composing a frame then I have at any other aspect in video, so I figure this is a logical choice. A friend of mine recomended the Rebel...? Any idea's? I'm not a totally helpless beginner, and I'll happily do some more research if pointed in the right direction.
