As a budding, amateur, completely novice, noob photographer, I am looking for suggestions from more experienced members. I am looking for suggestions/advice for a new Digital SLR camera. Most of what I do is either concert photography, nature, or city/architecture. I've actually had some accolades for a few of my photographs (Revolver Magazine featured a few of my concert photographs and our city's annual tourism calendar picked up one of my photos this year). I want to take it to the next level but not spend to much as I am not making any return revenue off my shots, imply for the fun of it.
I would like to stick in the sub-$500 range for the body. I don't expect much I am not printing wall size photographs.
One desire I have over my current camera is a faster time between shots. Right now there is 15 to 20 seconds between shots before you can shoot another one.
