So, last month or so i crashed into my Dad at Diablo, and broke his camera and his general attitude towards being a mt bike spectator. neaky: Anyways, the camera broke and now we, or rather my Dad, is getting a new camera. Looking in the 500 dollar price range, and used is not a problem. Want a SLR and somthing with at least 8 mega pixels. My question is wich is easier to use? The nikon or the canon rebel. I will be using it most of the time, but its important that he can turn it on and not have to read the manual to take a picture. Has any one had good experiences when using Ebay to buy a digi?
