I've been getting by without my own still camera for a while, but now I need to buy one. Can anyone recommend a good older model DSLR that I could get in good condition with a lens for about $300? I'm guessing a used DSLR will be much better than a new top of the line point and shoot, especially since they lack manual focus.
I've seen both older EOS models and the Nikon D40 in this price range on eBay, is one better than the other? I would go down to the local camera shop and look around but they aren't all that nice
