    I am looking at picking up a Digital SLR camera.
    I have been looking around (eBay) and I found four DSLR's that caught my eye.
    I just need help choosing the best camera.

    The four that I am looking at is...

    * Canon 350D w/ Lens kit
    * Nikon D100 w/ Lens kit
    * Nikon D50 w/ Lens kit
    * Nikon D70s w/ Lens kit

    Thanks

    D50 is a great starter, but if your looking for a little better glass to start with go with the d70s.

    I picked up a Canon 350 (rebel xt) the othr day and I love it. I'm no professional, but this seems to be a great introduction to DSLR's.

    I think that you should go to a store that carrys those cameras, and go hold them. You'll see what one you like the best.

    D100 is old and outdated. My vote is for the D50, but if you have a little more cash, go for the 70.

    D70, or Rebal XT, if you've got the extra flow, get a Canon 20D, that's my vote

    After doing a Google search on that camera. It just might be worth waiting a few days. Did you by chance see what the D80 will be selling for ??

    you cn still buy new 20d's for pretty cheap. look into that. the ergonomics alone are worth getting it over the 350d.

    doubtful, I see it as cheaper, since the sony A100 will be going for 900, I expect the D80 to have a very similar price

    I have been really happy with my D50, it is a GREAT camera, I haven't ever used the lens that came with it though, I upgraded at the same time I bought the camera.

    $900 USD but it might be 6-8 months before you might be able to find one in stock. Nikon is notorious for their extra long backorders.

    My vote is for the 20D. I bought the 350D and quickly outgrew it; just go right to the prosumer bodies and you won't regret it.
