I just really got into photography and i'm looking to buy a camera. Does anyone know of a good camera but is not to expensive?

Give them a price range....VERY expensive to you may be not too expensive to someone else.

Spend as much as you can afford. Digital? Camcorder? SLR? ???

Sounds like he's into Photography.

For right around $1000 you can get a Canon 30D. That's a good starter.

For $850-900 you can get a Canon 20D.

Less than that...
Canon Rebel XTi for around $750-800.

More expensive ones, Canon 5D, EOS-1 series, but those are pro level cameras and the price reflects that.

Maybe one of you Nikon guys could post the Nikon equivalents?

Body is only half the battle, you'll spend more money on lenses.

VERY rough body equivalents between Nikon and Canon... Some bodies don't exactly match as well (D200 vs 5D) as others (D80 vs 30D), but you can get the general idea...

(Nikon body) ~ (Canon body)
D1/D2/D3 ~ 1D/1D2/1D3
D80 ~ 30D
D70 ~ 20D
D50/D40 ~ 350D/400D
D200 ~ 5D

Boo on Nikon and Canon for having the letter D in every one of their model names...nevermind the fact that "D" probably stands for "digital!" Kinda funny to see how Nikon can't name any cameras "D60" or "D30" because those were both early Canon DSLRs.

I always thought the "D" stood for "Dope!"
