I have just started out in photography and was looking for a good quality DSLR that wouldn't break the bank. After looking online I found the Nikon 3200.
This is a great camera for an amateur photographer like myself. It's really easy to use and has a built in guide for beginners if your unsure how to set up things like ISO and shutter speed. There aren't too many buttons or gizmos so its not too confusing to get started with. The auto setting is good enough if you just want to use it as a point and shoot camera to start with and the other pre-sets work really well also so you can still take some fantastic photos while learning the technical side of things. I'm still getting to grips with all the different settings yet I have still managed to take some really great shots, if I do say so myself!
It's a 10 megapixel camera so you can print out your photos quite large without losing quality. The actual picture quality is great compared to a normal digital camera but its not perfect so if you want to do photography professionally you should consider spending more and getting a more advanced camera.
It comes with a 18-55mm kit lens which is good enough to get you started but you will definitely want to get other lenses if you want to do more advanced photography like macro or wildlife shots.
The camera isn't huge like some DSLRs so its easy to carry around and fits comfortably in your hand. It's not too heavy either even with a bigger lens attached.
