What's a good DSLR for beginners?

Oh, yes, of course. DSLR vs Micro 4/3rds aside, from what I hear it’s a good camera all around. :slight_smile:

Actually, transio, TBH I wouldn’t touch Wikipedia with a 10 foot pole. The dirty, little secret about that place is that even though “anyone” could techically edit it, the “editors” rule that place like an iron fist. So I could very well fix that page, only to have someone just change it back as a power trip. It’s not worth the trouble IMO.

At any rate, my advice is that if you “really” want to learn about cameras to check out actual photography sites, because they’re written by actual experts or people familiar with cameras, not self-proclaimed “experts” who just know how to copy, paste, and paraphrase content. Wikipedia is junk information-- always was, always will be.

Yup.
Wikipedia is a good place to get started looking for sources rather than actual facts a lot of the time (depends on the subject though… their medical and chemistry areas are pretty good). [/ot]

Wow, learned another thing here lol… didn’t realize Wikipedia was so poorly organized! You’d think that with so many users, they’d come up with a better way to manage content submission!

[ot]There is a group of former Wikipedia editors who broke off to start something more “expert-driven”… Citizendium.
Wikipedia is simply going to have issues based on how it was built and how it’s run… both its strength and its weakness. For me, it’s just one place to look for information, but I could never let it be my sole source.[/ot]

This question is impossible to answer unless you list:
budget
main use
prefered subjects
