hey guys, really digging these photography threads!
and i took a course in highschool... skipped a good chunk of the time, but i did take a handful of sweet shots!
I dont technically own a camera, and its something i've been wanting. not enough pics of friends, i'd like to get live show shots, and just pictures of cool stuff in general.
I dont know what the average $$ for a decent camera is, or what a decent one would be - what should I be looking at?
You could probably pick up a first-generation Canon Digital Rebel for not too much coin. It's not the most advanced camera (no RAW mode, for example) but it'll get you into the DSLR game for not too much. Lenses are the real killer anyway, and the body can always be upgraded later.
