    My father wants to get a DSLR camera. He loves photography and enjoyed it when he was younger and now he wants to get back to it.

    I don't know anything about photography so I am asking here. What camera would you recommend and why? He said his budget is $600 - $800 .

    -thanks OT

    Either a Canon 20D/30D/40D + Tamron 17-50mm($350) for all around shooting.

    They sell for ~$450/700/900 all used with the exception for the 40D.

    Nikon D80 is a good one too.

    Nikon and Canon are both great, tell him to go to a store and hold both of them and see which feels better in his hand.
