>What digital SLR should I get?

>My mom has indicated that she will buy me a digital SLR for Christmas. She’s going to get the same make and model for herself, so I can figure it out and help her. I’ve read good things about Pentax, plus you can use 35mm Pentax camera lenses on their digital cameras (so I’ve heard) and we have some of those. Big benefit.

I have also heard some really good things about Nikon and Canon models.

What do you think?

About Taminar

When I grow up, I want to make movies and write books. Now in my 50s, I wonder if I'll ever really accomplish the dreams of my youth. I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have three cats and a husband.

    >A friend of mine who uses a Nikon in his work as a local magazine editor recommended the D40. I'm seeing lots of good reviews. I was leaning towards a Pentax, because my mom has a bunch of old Pentax lenses and they can be used with the new digital SLRs, but the models getting the best reviews are kind of pricey. I'm still on the fence.
