Canon Canon Canon. I can't stress that enough. I'm a photographer on the side, nothing too crazy. I use a Canon 40D but it's a giant. For a smaller but still awesome version I would suggest the Canon T1i or the Canon Rebel Xs :) Bestbuy
I have the Rebel T1IS and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
From pre-digital days, I have a Canon Rebel and I love it. I still use it when I don't mind messing with film and it takes the best pictures. I would imagine that their digital cameras are amazing too. I'm going to be in the market for a new camera soon, so let us know what you end up getting and how you like it.
I have a Canon T1i, which I currently use for my photography business. It's wonderful! But one thing to think about is, it's not just the camera, you need a god lens too. I highly recommend the 50mm f/1.8 over the kit lens. The lens is only about $100!
I have no idea about cameras :) BUT I'm due 1/2/11- hubby really wants him to come by the 31st so we get our tax credit. I don't care when he decides to come as long as he waits until around 37 weeks! If he comes at 36w6d he'd be born on 12/11/10 HOW NEAT IS THAT?!?! 1/1/11 would be fun too and I think the hospital gives you tons of free stuff if you're the first baby of the year. He'll come when he wants to though!
Thanks for all the suggestions! I'll definitely be looking into some of those cameras. I plan to get one next month! :)
get a Nikon. The D3000 is great.
