if you can find a decent nikon d40 with a low amount of shutter actuations i would totally go with that. you can usually find one for about 200-300 shipped with a stock 18-55. i learned on that and loved it

kenrockwell.com u can read the awesome reviews on it, he praises that camera.

then eventually you can get new lenses too, i started with a nikon D40 with 18-55 than a 35mm 1.8 and then a Sigma 10-20 f/4.5. Eventually after a year upgraded to a Nikon D90 and now a Nikon D7000 with 35mm 1.8 and 55-300mm. still regret getting rid of my sigma 10-20

So again something just beginner for now but still kicks ass with quality and price. I will look up the previous models you guys mentioned, I appreciate the help! And brands to lean towards or stay away from incase I come across some good deals?

this is what i got a couple weeks ago just had to pay $120 right there
then other payments

I recently bought a canon 1000D for $270 with the 18-55 efs kit lens. It had less than 300 shutter count. Great camera so far, at least something to learn on that isn't super old.

again it depends on how much you are willing to pay, but I got 18-135 and 50 1.8 off the bat. I think its a really good combo for the price.

I have a sigma 10-20 4-5.6f if you're interested. I'm selling my d7000 for a d600 so I'll have no use for it

this...

Also shoot in raw and do the editing yourself. You hear a lot of people say, "I don't edit my images, these are straight out of the camera. [insert smug grin here]"

Well, when you shoot jpg, pictures are still being edited. The camera just does the work for you. Its like back in the day with getting film developed. You used to take it to a store and they would process it for you. when you shoot in jpg, Canon/Nikon/etc. have some sort of algorithm that chooses how the photo should be processed. When you shoot in raw, you do the editing yourself. similar to photographers developing their own film. It certainly takes longer, but you'll be happier with the results. Eventually, you'll figure out how you like to process things and it will get easier.

One more reason shooting in raw is better is because you can recover more data if things go awry.

Here's a photo that I took and how it looked when I opened it in Lightroom:

IMG_4042 by joel and a camera, on Flickr

Here's how it looked after I made some adjustments:

IMG_4042-2 by joel and a camera, on Flickr

and since this is a thread about cars/dslr

IMG_2545.jpg by joel and a camera, on Flickr
Canon 20d
Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 @ 41mm/f6.3
iso400

taken last October. I'm hoping to do some detailing this month and take some new photos.

50mm f/1.8 and Lightroom4 or 5. Both for under $300 and it will open up a whole new world for you!

So with the T3i you also have the ability to swap out lens's also? Don't these cameras already come with super good ones??

I got mine from Amazon Warehouse Deals. $400 for a "Like New" T3i with the 18-55mm kit lens. The box came that was delivered to me looked brand new and did not look like it actually has been opened at all. Everything in the box also look like it has not been touched. This wasn't my first time dealing with Amazon Warehouse Deals. I've bought a lot of stuff (mostly video game related stuff) from them and I think every "Like New" condition I got from them was actually brand new with some very minor flaws (broken seal, small damage on box/packaging, etc...). I've also bought "Very Good" condition items from them and those are usually open box/returned item with very slight sign of use.

@CASHxMONEYxMIKE: the T3i is a DSLR so it does have the ability to switch lens. it can use any lens with the EF mount. The kit lens that came with these camera are much better than any point and shoot lens however in the DSLR world they aren't really considered "super good". Though there are "good" lens that can be have for an affordable price.
