Hey everyone, I'm 17 years old and I've been wanting to get into photography for about a year now. I was wondering which camera would probably be best suited for me. I have some camera's that I am looking at and I am probably mainly going to shoot portraits, macro, landscape/travel, and some video. I kind of have a budget around $1000 or less, cheaper the better. I'm also looking for a light DSLR too... So far, I have been looking at: Nikon D5000 (kind of heading towards this camera) Canon EOS Rebel T1i or T2i I really like the Nikon D5000 because it seems to be pretty user friendly, it has the swivel screen, and it has video capabilities. However, on the T2i, it seems like the video quality is better, but it's price is pushing my budget.. Actually these 3 camera's in general are kind of pushing it. Canon XS 1000D Nikon D3000 Canon Rebel XSi These camera's seem to be more in my budget range but I really want video capabilities because I'm going on a trip to Japan this fall and I want to shoot some video. Sony DSC-TX1 I am also looking at this P&S camera too, I really like that it's really in my budget range and that it can take panoramic picture's. However I want to get into DSLR's and I already have a P&S and I'm not satisfied with it. It would be great to hear your opinion's on which camera would be best suited for me! I would also like to know about how much you spent on accessories too. Sorry for all of the questions, thanks a bunch though!
