OK, besides the cam and lens, you have to factor in the cost for a dry cabinet and bag as well. Maybe you want to consider getting a 2nd hand cam instead.

Alternatively, you may want to consider the following:

Nikon D40 / D40x
Canon 1000D
Sony A200

There are many such threads - a search may help you figure out what others have agonized over. A used DSLR may be better bang for the buck.

A dry cabinet is a cabinet that controls the humidity inside. A low humidity (around 50%) helps prevent fungus from growing in your equipment (especially problematic with lenses).

Price of second hand ones differ base on model types / age / wear and tear / defects / shutter counts.

You can check out our marketplace on CS for more deals

Here is a list of shops in Singapore that many of us frequent ( linked from the Nikon pricelist )

wah... don't expect people to spoon-feed you with information leh. This topic (difference between D40/D40x/D60) has been discussed several times on this forum. There is also lots of information on dpreview.com and other photographic websites.
Try searching for 'dry cabinet price' or something simliar using the search function in CS website.
Try searching the classifieds under CS website to find a good bargain!

Just a little help and some suggestions,

Go scout for 2nd hand canon 1000d kit at the BnS section, should be about $800 w warranty, or a 2nd hand 400d for about $650 w/o warranty or even a 350d for $450
Use the remaining money to get a dry cabinet, extra batteries, basic tripod for a start, perhaps some basic filters such as CPL, tianya GND filter.

D40/D40X are older models and D60 is newer model, a new D60 with kit lens should be around $900-1k, some shops may give u free memory card and camera bag, then use the small change to get a dry cabinet to keep the equipment away from fungus at home.

A decent dry cab with space to grow into is slightly above $100. I've heard people say here that they buy it from CarreFour in addition to camera stores. Read the posts on how to use it (it takes time for the humidity to stabilize).

Please try a search. It's part of basic forum etiquette and mentioned in the forum rules for newbies.

You can help yourself by doing a Google search and also a search in this forum.
For 2nd hand camera equipment, check out buy&sell section. Because frankly a budget of $1000, it only enough for you to a new entry-level dslr.

My advice, which I wished someone would tell me when I was getting into DSLR, is that there are good bargains in the Buy and Sell forum.

i don't think you can find a second hand 1000d so fast.... it was just launched a short while ago.

I recommend the Hasselblad H3DII-39MS. Confirm the pictures you take will make people go WOW.
What happened to your D∞X? :bsmilie:

please do your own research, call the shops, check out online reviews

every camera has its potential owner and lover. asking online is just going to give you 8000 different replies.. be a grownup, learn how to make your own decisions and learn to be more resourceful

in any case, the cameras that potentially you can get for below 1000 firsthand

nikon d40
nikon d40x
canon 1000d
pentax k200d
sony a200

for secondhand, got so many thousand options, from the old old time dslr to the less old models, like

nikon d70
nikon d50
canon 300d
canon 350d
pentax k100d
pentax k10d
blah blah blah blah blah
