My daughter has expressed an interest in getting a "real camera" this holiday season. We will be looking for a used mid level DSLR in case she changes her mind. Canon preferred but will consider other brands. 8 or 10 megapixel models desired. Do not need all the toys just a good basic starter kit (body and lens), heck the battery could need to be replaced.

Looking to spend between $250-300 if possible.

Dave:

I do a fair amount of business with Adorama and here is a link to their used DSLR list with many items in your price range. These do not have lenses included. Link

I did not find a link to lenses at Adorama. You could buy a body from one and a lens from another.

Here is the same information for B&H Photo that I have also purchased many items from. Link

Here is a link for lenses from B&H with some reasonable prices. Link


Both of these places are good to work with over the phone, both have toll free numbers.

Adorama 800-223-2500 / 212-741-0052

B&H Photo 800.606.6969 / 212.444.6615

Thanks Brian!

eBay and Craigsist haven't been great just yet but I have time to be patient.

Keep an eye on Canon's page, they have some great deals on refurbished cameras. Sometimes there are codes that take them down even more. Refurbished DSLRs direct from Canon

Well for what it is worth maybe keep an eye on After Thanksgiving sales. You might find something at a good price at Best Buy or something like that.

Well, we ending up buying a Nikon Coolpic L120 for our daughter at BestBuy. This is a nice step up from most point and shoots and she is very happy with it.

Thanks for the links and advice!
