Hello all,

I have a pentax point and shoot camera. Now I want to buy a digital camera. I want to go for SLR digital as I don't have any SLR. So instead of buying analog SLR and point and shoot digital, why not digital SLR?
Can someone suggest which is a good SLR camera that I can buy. The price range should be below or upto $1000.I know there are lot of higher end SLRs available in the market.

Thanks,
Trupti

The best SLR's are made by Nikon and Canon. Among the Digital SLRs, the new Nikon D70s makes a few improvements on the already excellent D70, it costs a bit more than $1000US if you want a lens. If you already have old Nikon lenses, many of them will work with reduced functionality. This can't be said for Canon, they changed the lens mount when they went to EOS. The EOS lenses will work on the Digital Rebel.

I have a Nikon D70 and love it.

D70 series is excellent. D100 is a bit over the mentioned budget as is the Canon equivalent (20d).
I'd avoid the lowend Canon cameras as they're not durable. Camerastore where I buy most of my stuff gets a LOT of them back for repairs.

Nikon is bringing a cheaper alternative to the D70 soon, the D50. It takes SD cards instead of CF which might be nice for you if you have those already for your current camera.

D50 will of course have less features and performance than the D70 but it may be enough for you and certainly a good step up from your current camera.
