    i had a P/S camera about 3 years ago that i dropped and it never worked again. Canon A30 or something

    anyway...

    ...i really really want a "nice" used digital SLR, my requirments aren't but that it be no more than 350 dollars, be SLR, ~6 m.p., and come with the instructional booklet...

    so, ebay is a little over my head, and craigslist scares me quite frankly...what can anyone suggest. I've really got the itch to get back into photography...

    $350?

    Used origional Rebel (300D)

    Maybe you can find a Rebel XT for that if you're lucky.

    Too bad you won't be able to buy any lenses. You can drill a hole in the lens cap and make yourself a pinhole digital SLR though.

    wow, thanks for the quick reply...

    i'm not even going to be brand loyal really, i <3 canon, but i'll take what i can get and make the kit lens work, surely i can get something for 350 that meets these requirments of mine and comes w/ a kit lens, no?

    You really are better off with one of the nicer P&S cameras. There's nothing wrong with them.

    I just sold a Rebel XT for $400 (body only). You shouldn't have a problem finding an entry level dSLR used for $350-400. You'd be limited to a kit lens or 50 f/1.8 ($75), though, with your budget.

    if you don't want to spend any money save yourself the headache and just get a nice P&S, I think the canon S5 is out now, it looks really nice

    dont bother with a SLR if you do not plan on spending money on lenses for it.

    Stick with a P&S. They can take amazing photos for the price.
    And are much more convenient.
