    If you've been browsing this forum you should have some idea of what camera you want...

    You're going to need at least $1,000 to start and you're going to need to be prepared for $200-800 "upgrades" at a time to your hobby, in the form of new lenses, lights, bags etc.

    So, for us to be able to help you more effectively, you need to lay out your absolute best budget, then tell us what you'd like to be shooting.

    Budget is around 500 ish right now, but will prolly increase in a mth or so...

    I would mainly want to shoot people, buildings, nature, anything that catches my eye really. Im not looking to make money, or go professional, But i would like to take nice pics i could show ppl, more for self amusement than anything.
