Hello fellow camera aficionados. The activity in this thread got the idea in me that I really want to start shooting good pictures. The problem is I don't know what camera I should start with. I searched the forum, but couldn't find anything. Currently I'm fooling around with my dad's Ricoh XR7 that's like 25 years old but really good. Now I want to go digital. Should I maybe start off with a used camera from eBay instead of going straight into a brand new camera? I've been looking at the Canon Rebel and Nikon D40 cameras. Since I'm just getting into this area I don't want to spend a ton of money on it. Is it possible to pull off something like this for under $400? Thanks.
