I didn't want to put this in General (wanted camera guys to see it) or the Photography Shoutbox...thought this was the closest thing to a general photography section so I slapped it in here. Plus it looks like this forum could use a few threads lol. Anyway, sorry if this is not in the right place, just let me know if it's not and I'll move it. SO...I am not a serious photographer, but I am more than just the casual snapper. I don't take photos regularly but when I do, I like to take good ones that incorporate some element of lighting, effects, and overall composition. I am an industrial designer by trade and took photography in school. So I've got the eye, and after doing some serious modding and thus photgraphing of my car this past summer, I am getting more into taking photos and would like more options when capturing my subject...which, more often than not, is my car lol. Other than that, it's landscapes or close-ups of small to medium sized objects, or partials of large objects. I currently use a Sony H3 and it takes great photos in full HD for what it is, but I have discovered there are some circumstances and environments that I would like to be able to take better photos in. I know I want a camera that enables me to add a flash and different types of lenses to start, such as a wide-angle. I have also seen some amazing photos of member's cars photographed in while in motion and I would love to be able to do that. Anyway I see D50's and the like mentioned around here all the time, but it seems the members that use them have photography as a major hobby. And I am not one to drop $800 to $1000 on a camera. I would like a solid just over average Digital SLR that gives me options for better photos and add-ons. I'd just like something that has a higher purpose than a point&shoot, but isn't meant for the super advanced user or that costs $1000. But yielding great results is a goal. Yes I can photoshop like a madman but I want something better to start with. I am reading the stickies in the Photography section, just wanted to get a discussion going. If you believe that a DSLR is something that you go "all or nothing on", don't be afraid to tell me. So, before I get ahead of myself... tell me if you know about this one: http://www.circuitcity.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5007270&Sku=N13-4562 Is it a piece?
