From start till now I read your thread it was funny, You mention and mention about this and that does not suit you, don't you think your own already got the answer?
to me, it's just a plain question.
the rebel models are considered beginner series, but within the few xxxD bodies, there can be improvement between each model. i.e 550D's full HD 24/25fps video over 500D's 20fps only.
for semi-pro, it can be anything from 60D to 7D and D7000 to D300s, depending on how your define it.
TS may not know the advantages which a semi-pro camera may bring as he only handled the 500D and perhaps D5000 before, that's why he is asking this question?
if you cannot even decide till now what camera you can use, then sorry you have low passion for photography. A person with passion will already use any camera, go shoot photos and know what is limiting him and thus what to buy.......
Just a get a semi pro body like u said...the 60D & start shooting.No point procrastinating here...Just my 2 cents!
So sorry guys for all the troubles that I've caused
All the weird questions or useless points I've made...
I should have do more research and questioning before I post anything on the forum... My apologies for that. Will now do more researching and then do more tryouts...
However I still need help too...
Since you are already familiar with 500D, why not take up a 500D with some kit lens at the BnS section? With 18-55mm kit lens and you might want to consider adding 50mm F1.8 ($100 2nd hand), and an optional 55-250mm IS? Buy a cheap flash and you might not need a fast/wide constant aperture zoom lens. In the end it is still the skill and not gear.
you will find that you can easily get this gear within $1k
500D does trump many of the early model DSLRs which "pros" were using at that time, too. so think a little...shoot a lot
have fun! (I am a 500D user w 50mm F1.8. loads of fun, cheap but good enough gear)

After you are able to read up more, you should be able to know all brand of dslr in the market is able to fit your needs. Most of the time if the picture does not comes up well, it is the photographer not the camera especially in modern dslr grade cameras. You want help? then all the help is already here in this newbie forum, just scroll thru the thousands of other threads here with tonnes of useful information then go and think for yourself what you want to buy. Asking others what you should buy is a stupid idea since no one else know better than yourself your preferrences
Yup agree with it, if not u just search it on this forum , if not mr.google it will help you a lot...Originally Posted by Fireemblem
Anyway you should understand much or less 1st does not mean you shoot around few times few month or even a years you already in another of stage...a nice picture does not mean need semi-pro camera only can do it..
Boy u need to learn to walk before u run.
Anyways if you are free join some outing to learn from those senior in Clubsnap...
There all are kind to teach...
thanks all for the response ^^
So just out of curiosity, what features are you looking for in a camera body?
I mean, u've used a 500D before.
So with that experience what did you feel was lacking? What features would you like to have with a new body?
Samsung NX10+30mm, Fuji S6500FD
