    my missus is the camera buff

    she has several Nikon Camera's

    Coolpix P600 is a good point and click entry type

    all the way through to her D3200 and D5500 which has the interchangeable lens's and she used when being more "artistic"
    Tidy Whitey - 99 GU TD42Ti - Diesel Gas, (GUIV Turbo & Intercooler 8Lb boost), 33" Micky T's Baja MTZ's, Dual Batt's, Cargo Barrier, rear draws, HID Super Oscars, winch, Grinch & witch attached and more goodies to come

    I also have several Nikons. My first was a D5000, then a D3200 and now I use a D7000. All are great caneras and is just starting into DSLR's I would suggest the D3000 series. I think it s up tp D3300 now. Cannon also make very good DSLR entry level cameras as do some other manufacturers, but Cannon and Nikon seem to be the more common ones here and therfor easier to find discount lenses etc for. Personally I use a Nikon as I have said, but its a bit like a Ford Holden thing with both both being equally capable. At the end of the day I use Nikon because I like the weight and feel of it.

    are you talking about getting 1 each? or 1 for you both? If your suggesting 1 each i reckon you'd be far better buy a Much Better one to share or adding another Lens for the extra coin.
    Its a Nissan! =====> Its a Keeper!! ....... Got a TD42 in it BONUS!! ....... I'm a lucky bugger! I've got 2 of em!

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Hey the wife and I bought a canon D600 before a trip to USA a few few years ago, and it's a pretty good entry level SLR - comes with 2 standard lenses as well. $600 should see you in for a good entry level Nikon / canon camera.

    We choose the canon purely because we preferred the look/ feel of it and use ability, but as others have said it's like a Holden / ford thing for some.

    You may want to put some additional $$ aside for a decent camera bag to hold / protect everything and some lense covers etc

    I have owned 2 Nikon cameras in the past. Could not fault them. My advice is to write down what features you are after and then do some research. Find out which models have all the options YOU will need and go from there. Like cars, what suites one person does not suite others.

    We have had a Nikon D40X since 2007. 10.2MP, which doesn't seem much compared to todays specs. However...
    Even today it blows a lot of higher MP cameras out of the water in terms of picture quality. This thing has gone through hell and back .All over aus, over seas. Shutter count is somewhere in the 7000s, and it still works like it did out of the box... This gives me confidence of buying another Nikon no questions asked.
