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.
Thank you Jay. Well, I love taking pictures but it has been a long time since I had a manual camera. Relearning
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.
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!
