Hello, My name is Nick and this is my first post. I have been into photography for awhile and I used a minolta film camera that my dad gave me(it was old then) Well it broke a couple years ago and I havent had money for a new one but now I am getting back into it. I want to go digital but I will be starting from scratch again. I was recommended a Canon 30d. Is this a good camera? I was also looking at the Nikon d50 because it seems cheaper. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.
