The fact is that the person behind the camera is the key of great photos. Gears just enhance that.

1100D and Nikon D3100 is probably the cheapest available in the market now. You can either of them at a very reasonable price around or even below RM2000. I think just wait for the Canon 1100D because it has some combination of functions from other Canon latest models, as i know, from 7D.
Appreciate what you got.

I recommend one of these because all have an Excellent Beginner setting/mode and easy to find - usually marked in green color :mrgreen: :

Canon EOS: 1D mk5, 1Ds mk3, 5D mk2, 7D
Nikon: D3s, D3x, D700, D7000, D300s

All the above have long shutter life expectancy and should last you many many years of used.

cheers!

They allows you to mingle with those majority who have the same brand. Sometimes they can pass you some good tips.
Sony is also good for beginners. If you stop halfway, there are always a point and shoot strategy. Accessories wise it's harder to get in Miri and cost a lot too. Canon G9 or G10 is okay too.

Try to list out what you want. Scenery or people? Cos both have their own criteria of lenses. Once you get those, you should be looking for a camera stand. Lists goes on.


So, what if I'm like to shoot people/potrait, which one should I go for ?
What if we're gone, and you're wrong?

Getting Entry level (Canon/Nikon/Sony, etc) will not end up in a wrong way at all, in fact, its fun to learn from those entry level, b4 getting involve more into this. Learning is everything for beginner rite? even editing photos.

But think of the whole system b4 buying. When wanna upgrade, to a bigger picture such as better camera body or future camera body, 2nd or 3rd lens, flashgun, memory cards, etc. Budget is everything. not everybody is rich enough to buy Nikon D3X and change to Canon 1D mk5 next day or week. Stick with the system, even entry level dslr can also produce good quality photo after much practice, even P&S or iphone can also.

Nowadays dslr really common already, go parkson walk walk can see few if not many ppl's neck hanging with it, even those trendy omicro four thirds. Vertigo's pic's message is very true nowadays. What for u buy a dslr and only use AUTO mode or live view for every shot?

Do consider this, are u really in need of DSLR at the first place, where those P&S, ultraZoom, micro 4 thirds can already do the job, in fact iphone too. Think about it, just like a pet, are u gonna get it cause everybody around u have it and when u don't need it, u just put aside. Or ur really into it and spending time to learn and money on it without regret.

ELSE ur just having an overpriced camera where even phone or P&S can do the job for u already.
