hi,

i just discovered this site about a week ago...
i'm interested in learning photography..

so i want to buy myself a nice beginner's SLR.
bear in mind that i dont know ANYTHING about slr cameras..
ive never used one before, and i dont really know anyone who could teach me, so i think im just going to try to self-teach myself with some books and internet resources...

what kind of cameras would you recommend?
what kind of features do i need? (or dont need?)

thanks!!
