Hi. That would greatly depend on what kind of money you are wanting to spend. Personally I have an entry level SLR, a Pentax KX with kit & telephoto lenses. As this is the one I own, it's the only one that I can make a full review of. I've had it now for over 6 months an shot around 3 thousands photos; no complaints yet. The focusing via the LCD screen is slow, so if your looking to shoot fast moving subjects via the screen, forget it. All other areas of the camera I really love. It's light & feels good to handle. One of the biggest selling points for me was price, 400 including extra lens, and that the telephoto is one of the smallest & lightest. If you want to spend 1000 + then I'd probably go for a Canon 60D. I don't think there's a bad SLR out there anymore. Good Luck.

Once you know your photography style it makes it much easier to figure out what is the best digital SLR. Since you know what you want to photograph, you can find the list of best digital SLR cameras on the internet.

You might want to consider getting a second hand body and spending the extra on nice lenses - for example with Canon (since that's what I know) I doubt you'd be disappointed with a 20D, 40D or 400D and these should save you a LOT over the "current" models. There are an awful lot of bells & whistles being added on now which don't really contribute to the basic quality of the images, so don't be distracted by those!

When you take images with a electronic SLR digicam, lumination moves through the contact and onto a reflection that shows this lumination through a concentrating display to a pentaprism, which is a prevent of cup that shows the image in such a way that you can see it through the viewfinder in the appropriate alignment. When you click the option to take images, the reflection flicks up and the shutter starts to present a electronic sensor / probe to the lumination.
