    You could try SLRs like FM2, OM-1, EOS5, and the likes. They're good beginner models as they teach you the fundamentals like exposure, shutter speed and aperture. That was how I learnt.

    u can start out with Canon 350D or Nikon d70s...
    with the digital capabilities, u can learnt all the techniques in exposure settings.. shutter speed.. etc etc faster than film slr, u dun have to wait for it to develope into hard copy.

    Hi,

    You can check out the cameras available on the B&S section and shortlist a few which can suit your budget and get a feel of the cameras you have shortlisted before deciding which one to get.

    yes. iirc d50 in singapore only comes as a kit with kit lens (18-55)
    while d70s comes as either body only or kit (with 18-70)

    erm... prosumer are basically PnS camera but bigger in size and more in function... dSLR is like SLR integrated with digital features(ccd/cmos instead of film basically) where you can change the lens as you like. you can only view dSLR/SLR by using a mirror to reflect the image projected from the lens to the viewfinder (except oly e-330 and panasonic L1), while most/all prosumer you will see the image captured by the ccd/cmos and then displayed on the eletronic viewfinder or LCD.
    most will love the feel of looking thru the optical viewfinder of dSLR after sometimes of using eletronic viewfinder or LCD from PnS.

    if you got the $ go for dSLR straight, instead of turning one big round.
    as for learning curve prosumer is definitely easier. with dSLR you will have to swap lens around, no live LCD preview etc.
    but all in all, it is pretty much the same, cos when IF you upgrade to dSLR from prosumer, you will have to overcome all those again.
    take it that prosumer give you to small steps to the midway, while dSLR gives you big step to the top
