You do not need anything over 10 mega pix. If you did then you would already know what cameras are good. Meaning you can get a beautiful image very large with 10 megs.

I have a canon 60D , with a good lens. I spent about 2,000 on this. its an amateur set up, but I am cool with it.

I have used quite a few and I think the Pentax cameras are pretty nice.

Have a K30 and it has tons of features, nice color, great ISO 1600 and 3200 and its pretty cheap. Huge battery life. Cant even remember when I last charged it.

Just saw it advertised online on sale somewhere.

A good match is a sharp 17-70mm lens or there abouts.
Skip the kit lens.

Best is not under $1000. Best would be one of the full frame cameras or the Pentax 645d if you have deep pockets.

The avatar of me was shot by a 9 year old.

I set up the lighting on lake michigan and she took it.

Not a great camera, I think about 6 megs.

Use it in manual mode, read , practice, take notes.

The learning curve with digital is super fast.

You Sir, are misled.... It's not about he MP any more, it's back to the artist.


WHAT are you going to be shooting?

I have been a photographer for many years... Back in the day, it was about the lenses and the methods. These days, it's about the CCD's and "which software package" are your using.


I use all Canon equipment. (Several bodies, ALL USM lenses.) But then again, I know what I'm after.

The Best DIGITAL CAMERA is the one you have on you. I have a Canon 5d mark II and it is usually not on me due to the size and amount of gear needed for specific shots and results.

If you miss any great photo opportunities because of this then the best camera just became the worst.

But besides that, I would recommend the Canon 5d mark II or III for being the best Canon model. The 1D is large and not easily manageable for the average to frequent user. If you are on a budget def. go with the Canon T2i. It boasts something like 18 megapixels and can record in full 1080p which means you can have super great photographs and videos.

If you are to only get one lens, I would get a 50mm to go with it. Either the 1.8 or 1.4 aperture selection. They do make a 1.2 aperture version which is the L series and is very very expensive. The 1.8 will run you near 100 bucks and the 1.4 will run you about 250-300 bucks.

The 5d mark II is pushing 1500.00 used and the mark III version will cost twice that.

The t2i will cost you roughly 300-600 whether new or used they don't range to high. With a kit lens it could cost you near 600-800 range.

Hope this helps!
