The pentax is ok like Longhairedhippy said. For your price range, for a DSLR (yes, that means digital) I would recommend the Nikon D70 (or D70s). It's slightly less than $1000 and with the extra cash you could get lenses. There's also the Cannon EOS 20D (more than the Nikon). BTW, I believe Woobie has the D70, if he's still posting in the forum. He's posted pics here before with that beast. Insane detail. But whatever you do, you should seriously also consider the extras. Batteries, Memory Cards, Carrying Case ($1000 is $1000), Lenses, etc. And if your really serious there's also filers and polorizers. It may be slightly risky (then again, most of the internet is risky) though Ebay could offer up nice deals on brand new DSLR's or even SLR's. Also note that older lenses are not necessarily bad. So you could save money there, just make sure that they don't have scratches or fungus on the lenses. But, if you REALLY want to save the money, another option is still going the SLR route. You'll pay like $300 for a body and spend another $500 on equipment. And at that price, you'll still have enough left over for a real nice photoprinter. FYI, walmart (evil, i know) has cheap photo processing. I could have them develop an entire roll for like $4. If I did digital it's $0.24/file.

thanks for the info. and yeah, i had like 25 pictures printed there once. they were good. but, the nearest walmart is like 100 miles away. quite a ways to drive for a $4 roll of film. lol.

Well, Craig lives in Western Kansas....the middle of now where.

No man's land.

I live in the biggest city in Kansas. And yes, they are all over. I live 2-3 minutes drive to 2 Super Wal-Marts, a Super Target, SAM's Club, Lowe's and Home Depot. Crazy crazy.
AND, I still don't think that this city is big enough.

And there are....5 total Wal-Marts here.
