    Preferably a Canon. I've grown quite comfortable with their point & shoots and video cameras, and I think they make an excellent product. I'm getting married soon (august 30th), and I'd like to find something before our honeymoon to Lake Tahoe so I can try and take some nice pictures of the scenery.

    I've been wanting to get into amateur photography for a good while now, just never had the cash. My budget is very low, probably 400 - 600 bucks is the best I can do at the moment.

    resellerratings.com is a great place to check if a site is shady or not....

    Try bandh.com or adorama, check out there used sections...I have used both these sites

    I don't require anything new, by any means, but I'd prefer to stay at least as current as the 30D.

    You wont be able to get a 30D body striped for your budget. Barely even a 20D. More along the line of a 10D or used Rebel.

    Adorama has refurb 30D and 20D's for a good price. 699$ but you'll have to get some glass.

    might not be the norm, but there were a few used 30D kits that closed on ebay for just under $500... So there may be hope yet.
