I'm planning on buying an entry level used SLR digital camera. This is pretty much for hobby. I'm a student getting into film/video production, so thats more of my area of knowledge and learning. However I want to get a digital camera and by knowing so much about exposure, focus, etc I just can't bring myself to get a point and shoot. My budget is $300 - $500. But I'm hoping not to go too much over $400. The camera's I'm looking at are: 1) Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT (leaning towards this one) 2) Nikon d40 It looks like I could get both for around $400 used on ebay, either buying just body then a lens or both together. Figured that I just get one lens to play around with for now and add on more during the summer as I learn more about the camera and what I want from it. Is there any other advice or camera suggestions other than these two?
