Default Best DSLR in the 600-750 range

Looking to come out of the SX30 and go to the next step.

Been looking at the canons and Nikons but they have several in this range. I mainly take indoor pics of my dogs, cats and family and some outdoor shots of off road events.

Which models are the ones I should be looking at.

Thanks for any help I can get.

Nikon D3100/D5000,Canon T1i/500D and Pentax K-x for the price range U have mentioned. What r u going go use the camera for? If U increase your budget by ~ $150, then add Nikon D5100, Canon t2i/t3i and Pentax k-r to your list of options.

For what you want to do, one dSLR (in your price range) is about as good as another. You should decide if your indoor shots will use flash or available light. If you want to use flash, an external flash will put you over your budget, and if you want to use available light, a large aperture standard zoom lens will put you over your budget. Remember that the camera is just the foundation of a system for taking photographs.

I suggest that you go to a good camera store, try out the dSLRs in your price range, and buy the one that fits you best. If you can't comfortably hold the camera, if you can't find the controls and commands when you need them, you'll miss shots and be disappointed with the camera.
