    I'm looking for a new camera and have decided to go for a DSLR.

    Since I'm a complete noob and intend to do a bit of training and a Photoshop course I'm not after anything to fancy..

    I'm looking at spending around $8-1000.

    These camera's come to mind.

    Canon EOS 1000D (with single lens) $967 with bonus camera kit

    Nikon D60 with twin lens kit $888 or the cheaper D40 with single lens $578

    Olympus E520 $897

    Sony A200 with twin lens with bonus $300 James Bond kit. $748 or spend a bit more on the Sony A350 with twin lens kit $1278 with bonus $300 James Bond kit.

    All these prices are from Harvey Normans and I have no intention of purchasing a camera there!

    Can anyone please advise what camera may be most appropriate for a beginner and the best store to purchase from?

    I'm leaning towards a Nikon D60 but the Sony A200 seems to be a good price for the features.

    Cheers.

    We use eyepoint instruments in our lab to clean all the lenses in the microscopes, eye scopes, camera lenses etc and they do a fantastic job.

    thats a shit price for the D40 which is a camera that has been superseded by the D40x and the D60. ive seen the kits for $596 i think from JB hifi. Thats a fantastic price for the A200, is that with both lenses 18-70 & 75-300mm though ??!

    If you're not intending on buying any lenses for a D40, then it's pretty pointless having a DSLR IMHO. A G10 would have nearly all of its features, and be much easier to carry around.

    DSLR's on their own are crap. You need to learn how to use one properly and spend $$$ on accessories to get decent results out of them.
