I am saving up for a nice digital camera and I am wondering about what brand and models I should consider. My budget is under a $1000.

Thank you so much! I am getting closer to the big purchase so every comment counts. I can't wait to start shopping them out.
I will check it out!
Gina, I am very interested to see about the differences in these cameras. Thanks so much for suggesting that I compare!
Buying into a camera system needs a lot of research. Once you've started acquiring lenses it's very costly to change over. The more knowledge you acquire the better. Visit dpreview.com for more information.
Brian, thank you very much for your comment. I am so thankful to all you guys for your help on this. I want to take my daughter's senior pictures and also will take low light pics when my daughter's band is performing so I will check out the t4i !
The T4i is the same camera as the Canon 650D mentioned in one of my Hubs. Canon has this nasty habit of giving cameras different names in different countries. If I didn't already have a 7D, I might have been seriously tempted to buy one.
Thank you Jay. Well, I love taking pictures but it has been a long time since I had a manual camera. Relearning
Hey Mick, which camera give you the best bang for your buck? I am missing having a nice camera and I always lean towards Canon but am looking for what other photographers have to say.
Sorry, I don't understand what you mean. I use the 3 film cameras for different purposes, and the digital as a toy.
The field camera for landscape and pinhole, the Bronica for more detailed stuff, the 35mm for macro.
Mick, I am a bit of a novice, and am looking for a good camera to get back into taking high resolution pictures. My goal is to take my daughter's senior pictures. Had a Yashica back about 20 years ago, loved it.
It depends on what you want, I prefer film, and am interested in art photos, and detailed macro, and interested in processing my own, so I went for good quality film cameras. You may prefer the ease of digital. I don't want, or need instant results.
Thanks Mick, I will probably use digital but I am taking everyone's advice into consideration to see what people are using.
Wow and here I thought I was the only one in the world who used a Canon 1100D! Nice to see they're not dead yet, they really are a neat entry-level DSLR.
Thank you duffsmom, I will check into the Nikon and the Canon EOS cameras. I am getting really anxious to buy my camera!! Still saving up the money so I have a little time to decide. :)
We've purchased several cameras from Adorma.com. They have good prices and service - plus I saw a note on the site that they purchase used equipment. Good luck with your search.
Thanks Mr-Veg! I will certainly check it out!
So Dawn, did you decide on any camera yet :) ... Looks like you got tons of nice suggestions out now :) ... btw whose pic or which pic you will take first when you buy the camera :)
mr-veg~ Hey, thanks for stopping back! I indeed did get a ton of wonderful advice and suggestions here. I have some time this afternoon and I am going to start looking at all of these cameras. My first picture, hmm let me see, I have many plans!
This thread is turning out great! I am getting so many good ideas here. Thank you, I will check out this camera!
