I have this conversation at least once a week. The question comes from all sorts of people but is always the same: “I am ready to graduate from my point and shoot to a DSLR—what should I get?” This discussion usually centers around Canon and Nikon, since both make a basic DSLR: the Canon Digital Rebel XTi and the Nikon D40x. Both of these cameras are under $750 with the kit lens, have 3 frames per second (fps) burst rates and are in the 10-megapixel class. Check our reviews of the Canon Digital Rebel XTi and the Nikon D40x.
