    Hi everyone! Adam from the NYC area, currently living in the Czech Republic. I'm looking for some advice on a first non point and shoot camera. I'm working with a budget of about $1000 and would like to buy something I can expand upon should my skills improve. I have seen some pretty appealing package deals on ebay, and most people have told me to buy Canon. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

    welcome!

    nikon has some decent "kit" packages for around a $1000 you can buy. the d40x or d60.... those are good places to start, on the nikon side of the house.

    Welcome!
    I don't think you can go wrong with Canon or Nikon. I would also check out www.bhphotovideo.com as well as www.adorama.com. Both have competitive prices with a good reputation for customer service. Good luck and enjoy

    Welcome aboard. The Canon XTi and XSi are worth looking into.

    Thanks to all for the warm welcome. From the limited amount of knowledge that I have gathered, I've heard that Canon lenses (sensors) are better/cheaper. I know that I should go to a shop and handle a bunch of cameras before buying to check out all the options and whatnot. I look forward to learning a lot here :wink:

    Also if anyone here can direct me to some basic beginner info it would help me a lot. Thanks!
