Well how much would I get for my canon rebel xt, and three lenses, where is a good place I can get a good deal, besides Ebay?

When I get my page up, maybe we can exchange links, if that's cool with you?
sure!! I hope I get to do it by this weekend, I was planning on doing it this past weekend but I had work on saturday and sunday. Experience is really what will get you far, but it's still good to know certain basic rules from photography, I also got tons of photography books, I would go with Diemen's advice and concentrate on one brand, although I would go with Canon, the 50D is an amazing camera

If I did stay with one brand it would have to be Nikon. I mean I love Canon, and it has given me great pictures but I think I should part ways with it. I shouldn't be saying this cause I know Electronics have minds of their own and will not work after this lol. But I am prepping for my next project and The D200 is amazing.

go to photograph stores, I usually see a bunch of offers at the stores in here, and check amazon and bhphoto por prices, You'll probably won't get much for the camera since there are two newer versions or is it one? you've got the xt o xti?

I have the XT, like you said probably not much. My younger brother asked if he could take the canon with him to school, I could give it to him and not lose out in money and pass it down the family line lol.

Took this recently with my Canon. Still a great camera.

just saw the specs on the D200 I would definitely stick with that one from the two options you have, besides it's never a bad thing to have a backup camera, just tell you'r brother to take care of it!!

I love my Pentax KD-100, it does RAW and the mount is backwards compatible with the older Pentax lenses.

I was after something to learn to shoot digital with, and it was a decent step up from my old minolta.

yes.

Personally I'd spend the money on better lenses instead of another body.

Would anyone recommend some good photography books? I'm new to the DSLR world and feeling a little lost. I've read Nikon D40 Digital Field Guide and Nikon D40/x for Dummies to get the basics of my camera down. The only general photography book I've read is Photographing Your Family by Joel Sartore and would like more of that type.

My camera is a Nikon D40. My lenses are the Nikkor 18-55mm, 70-200mm, and 18-200mm. (I'm going to sell the 70-200mm soon). And my site: Flickr: Downtown Chinatown's Photostream.

Any feedback and recommendations on books or education, outside of taking classes, would be great!

you've got some great pictures in there!! I would recommend digital portrait photography and lightning, it's a really good book, I've got other's that are a bit more focused on studio lightning, wedding photography and other things.. I'm not to familiarized with Nikon, but my best adviced would be to see how far you can push the camera in terms of ISO settings, I would advice you to get a flash if you don't have one, why are you selling the 70-200mm?

I originally bought it so I could have some zoom capability beyond the stock 55mm. Then after purchasing it, I realized I needed more of a walk around lens that wouldn't require changing between zoom and wide angle, hence the 18-200mm. They're both VR, both Nikkor, and the 18-200 has a smaller f-stop. The 55-200 is a great lens, I just don't see why I would need to use it any more, so I might as well put the money to better use through books or other equipment.

What flash would you recommend and why?
