    Id take a look at the Nikon D80 but it depends on what you are looking for in a camera. What kind of pictures do you want to take? Does size matter? MP matter? etc.


    Best way to pick a camera is hands on. Youll get a couple model names from this thread. Once youve got that look up a few reviews on them to get a technical look at them. Once you see one you may be interested in (and most the most important part), go to a camera store and "play" with them. See what feels natural to you.
    Nikon D90, D40 Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 | Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 | Nikkor 35mm f/1.8
    Vertical Grip, SB-600, SB-24, Sunpak 433D, Metz 40AF-4N, Alienbees CyberSync Triggers

    thank you for the quik responce

    i was thinking to get the most compactik and easy to use and smallest that i can get, i dont know what i should look in the technical stuff of the camera...

    i will go to the store when i have a chance but i dont think there is much to see in office deput\target\best buy...

    my direction of camera(only by seeing pics in the internet and some comments about them in dpreview) is sony alpha and nikon d40X how are them?

    im not going to be a profsional photographer its just for fun.

    If you want more in the way of recreational photos, then you might consider an ultrazoom rather than an SLR; less bulk to carry around in lenses, probably a bit cheaper...You'll loose some features and image quality, but it's worth considering. If you want to take a look at some, Fuji and Panasonic make some high-end Ultrazooms, although the Panasonics tend to be a bit noisy.

    For that sort of money, you can get a Nikon D40, 18-55 lens, 55-200 VR lens, a 2gb memory card, and a small bag to hold it all. That would run you close to the $900 max. (Prices based on Samys Camera online site).

    I am not an expert and I just got it yesterday but you can get the Pentax k100D with a couple lenses for that. But I will reiterate I am not an expert and I have about 5 hours experience with the camera
