Default Fancy Camera

Looking for a decent digital camera. The fancy kind (removable lenses etc...)

My wife took a few college courses back in the day and knows a few things about them, I'm trying to find one for her. I know nothing besides they make taking pictures harder.

Not looking to spend a ton 'o money, like to keep it under $200 for a used one. I don't need a bunch of stuff for it really, one good everyday lens for now, she can upgrade later.

Thanks!

Lucas

Good luck for that cheap. A decent used one with lenses will be like $500-800

look for one of the canon rebel series. They are fairly inexpensive new so you might be able to find some used in the $350-450. Not gonna find anything for 200 unless its solen

I found some on amazon, rebel series for just over 200. New, but not new model, seems I could find a used one maybe less.....

The detachable lens usually costs more used than your total price FWIW.

Well, I ended up going with a new one. I picked up a Nikon 5100 for her. Seems to do the job and she LOVES it.

A few neat sites I used to help me: http://www.dpreview.com/ and http://www.kenrockwell.com/index.htm

And yes you guys are right; even used ones were well over my target price range!
