Good Digital SLR for good price?

    Looking to buy a Digital SLR for my girlfriend for chirstmas, but I have no idea what to look for when choosing one. Can anyone reccomend one for no more then £200 please. Cheaper the better, thanks!


    When choosing theres lot of factors.. here are just some: Do you own any lenses? How much are you prepared to invest in future lenses? Do you need a video feature?

    You might get a DSLR on ebay for 200 or less.. will struggle for a new though

    this isnt a DSLR but is a bridge camera .. its very good for the money though:…414?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&tag=****&linkCode=asn&creative=22206&creativeASIN=B003WOKU4W

    this is one of the best value DSLR.. if not the best value:…642?cm_mmc=Google+Shopping-_-Feed-_-_Digital_SLR_Kits_%26_Bodies-_-641642_PENTAX_KX_SINGLE_L%2FKIT&_$ja=tsid:8360|cc:|prd:KX+SINGLE+L%2FKIT|cat:_Digital_SLR_Kits_%26_Bodies

    If you want a camera better than a standard point and shoot but don't want to invest in lenses in future you may want to consider something like a Canon G9. I use that as a weekend camera when I don't want to carry a huge DSLR with me. Has all the features of an DSLR (full manual, as well as auto) and the added bonus is my Canon flash fits on top to give better results with flash photography.

    Whats the difference between a DSLR and a Bridge Camera?

    The reason i'm looking for a camera is because she did Photography in school, so i'm looking for a camera similar to what she would of used then.

    Bridge cameras are cameras which fill the niche between the single-lens … Bridge cameras are cameras which fill the niche between the single-lens reflex cameras (SLRs) and the Point-and-shoot camera.[1][2] They are often comparable in size and weight to the smallest Digital SLRs (DSLR), but almost all digital bridge cameras lack an optical viewfinder system (film bridges generally had a lighter version of a reflex finder). In addition, SLRs normally feature interchangeable lenses, while current bridge cameras do not.[3] The phrase has been in use at least since the 1980s,[1] and continues to be used with digital cameras.[2] The term "Bridge camera" was originally used to refer to film cameras which "bridged the gap" between point and shoot cameras and SLRs.[4][5]
