Quoting CerealMakerWife♥:" I guess I would look for a used one on CL or something. If you like Canon and know how to use them I would go with one of those. You really can't go wrong with a Canon or Nikon."
Quoting Rista Kat:" I'm used to working with Canons but open to a Nikon. They are just more expensive it seems like. I've been searching CL but not really finding much in my price range - or it's like 2 hours away."
Quoting CerealMakerWife♥:" I have a Nikon. They only thing I don't like is you need to buy lenses that have a motor in the newer ... [snip!] ... cheaper then $450 and everything seems to hold it's value pretty well. There a ton used around here. Have you looked at ebay?"
Quoting Rista Kat:" They only thing I don't like about Ebay is that you can't test it before you buy it. And if I'm buying ... [snip!] ... I've found a few around my price range brand new, just not sure if they're good cameras or not. They all have mixed reviews."
Quoting Rista Kat:" I once had a Canon Rebel XTi that I loved, but sold because I needed money. I want to invest in another camera, preferably a Canon. I want to spend no more than $300. What are your suggestions?"
Quoting FroggysMommy:" For 300.... I don't think you are going to get a DSLR, unless it's used. I wouldn't buy used though, ... [snip!] ... 5 years and it was a tough little smurf! I now have a Polaroid, and LOVE it! It's not a DSLR but it has a ton of capabilities!"
