Photography is really boosting nowadays, even kids today love to photography and love hold DSLR.
Rule of Thirds is what we got on photography :D

But as a beginner, identify first the different DSLR today because maybe you choose the advance features of a DSLR!

Yes...come back to us when you can tell us what it is you are looking to do with a DSLR...

Macro, distance, night, day, studio, video, etc. the combinations are endless!

I've been thinking about a DSLR myself, I still work sometimes with my film Nikon. Something comparable to it is going to run me close to 1K including one or two lenses. I have a little Canon Digital that works well, but it's not professional. I've seen some nice Canons DSLRs at Costco for around $500. that includes a lens.

A Nikon D5100 or even a D3200 would be good entry level DSLR cameras.

A D5100 is an expensive camera for anyone, especially a beginner.

As I'm sure you realize, photography isn't an inexpensive hobby. The D5100 is the second least expensive DSLR in the Nikon line. You might find a used D5000 for less, but Nikon DSLRs retain their value pretty well. Now might be a good time to get good deals on used Nikon DSLRs. The D800 came out a few months ago and the D600 was just released. Lots of people are upgrading and selling their old gear.

no it's not inexpensive, you're right. and that's too bad to, because some people who are really good photographers can't afford nice equipment, or to even go to some of the places that some professionals do.
