Re: Best SLR Camera for amateur/beginning photographer
exactly what Glen said! XT or original canon digital rebel, which is also known as the 300D, are both great for you. the original digital rebel is what i started with a couple years back. i favor canon and use nothing but canon in video or photo. i'm currently shooting with a 30D and 20D. if you are getting into photography you need something with shutter, iso and Fstop settings. going full auto or using the cam's presets is good but you should also learn to shoot in manual. there will be situations where the pre's won't help you. i shoot in nothing but manual for every shoot i go on.
