    Canon 1000D, 450D, 400D maybe a 350D. Not sure of the cost of those Stateside but there good AP cameras. Also check out second hand if needed.

    I'm new to the DSLR world also. I have used hypered film and CCD but I'm looking ay the Pentax Kx as my intro DSLR. I've done the research and for what it lacks, it seems worth the price at under $483 Shipped.

    I had a link for you to check out but AF won't let me post that kind of stuff till I'm bigger.
