i dont really know anything realistic for a student i guess. that sounds like a good idea. my sister has a pentax i could use but i'm not sure if it's good enough.

a camera's only as good as the photographer. having a "better" camera does not make you a better photographer. You will not get "better" pictures because you have a more expensive camera.

just saying.

so in other words, im guessing you're just getting into photography?? if so, maybe go borrow one from someone, or use what you already have (ex. pentax). Until you get the hang of things.
Does your school not lend out cameras?? Just wondering, as most art schools have camera rentals for their students.

lol i wasn't saying it's not good enough for my superior photography skills i was saying it might not be up to the standards that the school demands. i have taken photography all throughout high school so i'm not really just getting into but im definitely no pro. but it is one of my courses so i do need to find a camera.

but yes i will find out if they lend out cameras, thanks for the feedback smile

If your thinking of getting into design at school/college and your serious about it you are going to need to buy a half decent camera. The Canon Rebel XS/1000D is a pretty good beginner digital SLR for the price. I just got one and as a kind of entry level camera its really good.

It does matter but yes once you get to a certain point the difference isnt noticeable

ie a shit grainy 640x480 cell phone cam from 2004 is not gonna be good no matter what

^well obviously not a cellphone camera... but i mean just a decent point and shoot now a days and many are good to go. Yes, a mark II D will get you nice pictures, but it's still up to the shooter to have good subject matter, composition skills, knowledgeable technique and etc. I've seen way too many people holding Nikon D300's shooting shit at crappy angles thinking that their camera is the shit and therefore all their pics are amazing pieces of work.

Anyways, to the OP. I didnt mean any hate or anything towards you haha. if it came off that way, im sorry haha

Well if youre tight on funds and you're going with something just for your assignments/everyday living, i'd say go with a beginner type dslr...like the consumer type.

Nikon D40, D60, D80, D90..etc
Canon Rebel XSi, t1i, t2i, etc. (lack of knowledge in canons...)

but if you have the funds, i would probably start off with a better body instead of having to upgrade once you want to advance into photography or something. (eg. Nikon D90, D300 or Canon T2i, 50D)

It really depends on your budget. I personally would spend more money on the lenses, than a body.
