Hi all

For a while I have been toying with the idea of buying a DSLR. I quite often get to travel and would like a good camera to document some of the great places I get to see. I’ve been looking at a new entry level DSLR such as the Nikon 3100 or Canon 1100D, but I would still be looking at approximately 350 for a starter package. I’ve noticed I can get an older, second hand DSLR such as a Canon 350d and lens for around half the amount of a Canon 1100D. Would I be better going for something like this to determine whether or not a DSLR is for me before spending more than I need to? Is there another cost effective option people would consider?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
