Hello Fellow...MacRumorians...or something I've been here awhile, and I've been searching through the threads on cameras, but I'm going to go ahead and create my own (I hope no one minds... Anyway, let me set up some context. Currently, I'm using a Minolta DiMage 7i (which I thought was a dSLR but really is a fake dSLR... ). I take photos professionally (not really, but sort of - I've easily paid off the 1000 dollars that the Minolta cost me a few times over, but I'm not a "big" professional photographer) - here's a look at the website if you're interested: http://web.mac.com/c.peters06 Well, I have a big horse hunter-jumper show coming up on August 5th, and I think I want a new, real dSLR before then. I need a camera that can take pictures fast (think burst mode) but fits my budget (around 1200 bucks). Additionally, I have a CF card now, but I'm more than willing to switch to SD or whatever (just remember to factor that into the cost...). Anyway, what camera do you all recommend (probably the Canon or Nikon, ), and more importantly, what accessories/lenses should I purchase? Finally, links would be much appreciated - is anyone familiar with purchasing cameras online, and if so, where from? THANKS - I appreciate all your feedback.
