Best SLR for around £500 to £600. All purpose!

    My sister wants to take up photography as a hobby and Im looking for the best SLR for this price as im not all that clued up on them! Any help is appreciated thanks


    Nikon D3100 is a very capable camera, that or if she prefers the feel of Canons then the 550D, those are the only two I'd really consider at the moment

    I would go for a Canon 40d second hand ~£300, then spend £300 on a decent lens

    Any starter won't immediately need anything other than the already capable kit lenses, this whole new generation of SLRs that are being released are definitely not worth ignoring

    Get her the best canon or nikon that you can for the price.

    Get a good cheap SLR (Canon 30D perhaps) and spent the majority of the cash on a good lens or two

    Pentax K-x, twin lens kit at Currys. In the deals section
