it depends how uch you’re willing to spend on one. the canon 40d or 1000d are good!posted over 2 years ago
If you don’t need a video feature, I think the D3000 is just fine. it’s more about the lenses than the body, unless there’s like a $1000+ cost difference. by saving money on the body, you can get better lenses. a fixed-focus lens is a staple. get a 50mm with a wide aperture (i.e. canon has one that’s f-stop 1.8). you’d probably also want a wide angle lens, and a lens that has a decent zoom. each of those could be $200-300 each thoughposted over 2 years ago
I have the NIkon D5000. It’s really easy to use and I’m pretty happy with it. However, unless video is really important you might want to go with the Nikon D3000 or maybe even a Canon. The main reason I’m saying this is because you WILL eventually want to play around with different lenses and a 50mm is usually pretty popular. However the more affordable Nikon 50mm lens will not auto focus on a Nikon D5000 body. I found this out the hard way…Other than that it’s a great camera.posted over 2 years ago
