Right Ive asked this question on a few different forums and got a luke warm response to say the least. Basically my art+design class includes photography as one of the techniques to pursue, and I quite like it tbh but my current camera is I think holding me back a tad as its a pretty basic model as you can see. What I'm after is an entry level~intermediate DSLR, and yes I have no experience of DSLR's neither does anyone in my family so I'm aware theres going to be a bit of learning involved. Ive set my budget at around the £450 mark although I will be flexible if needed, so far I'm quite taken by the Nikon D50 and D40x and I'm also looking at the cannon EOS 350D, and the EOS 400D which looks to be a little on the pricey side. So does anyone have any recommendations or other on-line shops to look around apart from jessops, (I will be going to jessops in town on Monday after college to get a feel for some of the mentioned cameras to see if they fit.) Thanks in advance for your help.
