Canon EOS 1000D
Advantages: Cost, battery life, fairly easy to use if you are familiar with DSLR settings. Small and lightweight
Disadvantages: For new users the settings can be a bit overwhelming, menus are quite confusing.
I purchased this DSLR around 6 months ago, so far I have been very impressed with this camera. I was looking for something not too expensive but with the greatest quality I could get for the money I was willing to pay.
The 10 megapixel sensor has never proven to be anything but great for the use that I have had for the camera. However I would recommend spending a little extra for a better lens than the standard one (providing you purchase it with the lens) as it tends to be a little limiting for some kinds of photography. The battery life is more than ample for sustained use, I've managed to have one charge last me around a week with fairly frequent use.
I originally purchased this to replace my point and shoot Canon camera and I would definately stick with Canon in the future, there are some that say the Nikon cameras are superior but after comparing this to a Nikon of the same price range I have found it to be a little bit better, not massively but better.
There are some downfalls though, users that have not gone into the depths of the manual settings of cameras could find the settings to be a little bit difficult at first and I do find that if you shoot on automatic you will not get the full use of the camera. However if you do know the settings it is very easy to use and everything can be set up with a quick roll of the wheel located just above the shutter button.
Summary: A great purchase for anyone looking for a reliable, decent quality digital SLR for a low price.
