So i didnt want to fork up a wooping 1.7k for a dslr just yet, and my mum suggested to get me the canon g11. Would this be a good camera to start off with? to just get me used to tweaking and camera shots and what not?

yes but if you spend a tiny bit more money you can get a Canon or Nikon entry level DSLR with a starter lense. Gives you more options for future upgrades of lenses etc. without having to fork over for a new body, plus you can still use those lense when you upgrade the body later.

I was somewhat in the same dilemma as you. i got the g11 because its easier to carry around, probably going to upgrade to something higher than entry level soon

Hey, I started with an old old Yashica Electro that my grandfather gave me.

And y'know what? It's still one of my fav cameras.

A "beginner's" camera is a DSLR camera in my opinion. Take the opportunity as a sound investment. But that's just me...

Perhaps a Canon Rebel.

if you're going to use it solely to take pictures of pickups to post on hb, then yeah, it's decent.

pentax is my fav dslr. They are generally cheaper than a lot of dslr & they never changed their lens mounting so when i find old lens at markets at hock shops they will still work even though they are 20+ yrs old

If you're gonna get a beginner camera get a good camera body with an entry level lens.

So at the end of the day when you are at the point where you feel you want to try different things upgrade the lens.

The new Canon "X" series are a good way to go.
Might be bit on the pricey side but at the end of the day you'll thank yourself for getting it. If you really ever get into photography it will save you thousands.
