    Default Recommendations

    Okay i've decided to pursue an interest in photography and have decided to get myself an entry-level DSLR camera. Any recommendations around 500-600? I don't mind second hand.

    There are lots of bargains in the B&S section. I always point my friends to there if they're looking to get into photography.

    There are 6 megapixel cameras that costs around 300 bucks and additional 50 for kit lens in the BNS...
    Its old really, but it's a good start as it features the basic functions you need in Photography.
    If budget really lower than this you might opt with film cameras, can go lower than 100 for the body.
    I dunno!!!

    Why not fork out a bit more and get the Sony A230. A brand new set with warranty to give you a peace of mind.

    The prices stated is the RRP, the shops should be selling below this price.

    Brand new Sony A230 is about 620. Second-hand A200/300/350 cameras will easily be in your budget too.

    Yeah i was looking at the Sony A230 but i've been looking around the forums, people have been saying to save up for the A330 cause of the live view or something? Is that something i really need? If not i'll go for the A230. What is RRP btw?

    The main difference between the A230 and 330 is the live view. Live view is like using a compact camera where you compose your pictures using the LCD screen. For the A230 there is no live view option and you have to look into the viewfinder to compose your pictures.

    If live view is important to you, then you may want to consider the other models which bro Rashkae has mentioned.
