    Hi,

    I am a beginner with a hobby of taking pictures, and now wish to purchase a good digital camera.

    Can someone suggest me some good models which could be bought within a reasonable price (i.e. <~ $250)? Please also suggest websites/places where it could be checked out...

    Thanks. :blushing:

    if you want to get a digital SLR $250 isn't going to be nearly enough. I don't have much experience with point and shoots so i cant help you there. But if you are seriously getting into photography have you considered
    getting
    a film SLR? You can pick up a quality used one fore under $100 and then you have some money for lenses.
