I am just getting into photography, and atm I only have a point and shoot, so I'm looking for a dslr. I'm on a budget, so I was looking at the Nikon D40 or the Canon Rebel XTi. The d40 is $470 with the 18-55 mm lens on B&H photo I know megapixels don't make the camera I just thought I'd throw it in there, the d40 is 6.1 mp And the XTi is $590 with the 18-55 mm lens (same website) xti is 10.1 mp Or should I go up to the Nikon d40x for $609 with a 18-55 mm lens d40x is 10.2 mp And for Canon, the next up was the 30d (well on their website, that's the next up) but the body alone was $800, so yeah But I mean I could just go down to the Rebel XT for about $400 xt is 8 mp So yeah, I don't know, I was trying to stay with either Canon or Nikon, and I was trying to stay under $600, and the cheaper the camera is the sooner I could get it. This would be my first dslr so I just need a "beginners camera". Which camera do you suggest? Doesn't have to be one already mentioned, but I think staying under $600, between canon and nikon that's about it lol.
