Well, it is about time to start fulfilling my passion: A passion for photography. I am about to take few photography classes from http://www.theshowcaseschool.com/site/ and the school requires to bring Digital SLR camera on the first day of class. Now I need to know which one is good, not only to take good picture but also to help me learn photographing. I was so happy to see this forum and I am sure I will get good help. Any advice is welcomed. By the way my budget is up to $1200.00, but can spend some more money in the near future for accessories such as lenses. Thanks in advance.
