dSLR cameras are one of the hottest items in the market today. They’re getting extremely good at the entry level and now at a $500 price point more attractive than ever. I do a lot of research on stuff like this when I’m interested in buying, and I’ve been thinking about getting into this for about a year. During that time Nikon, Canon, & Pentax have been paying a ton of attention to the entry level dSLR.
These cameras are now made as lightweight and simple to operate as possible. They are as automatic as your point and shoot pocket camera, but offer the opportunity to endeavor the steep learning curve of photography proper, with manual settings and advanced editing.
Expect a fair amount of action in this new category, Photography, nynerd.com/photography as I expect to get the bug and spend a lot of time shooting here this summer.
