Can i get a DSLR for that price? I like to shoot at night and shoot things to sell on e-bay like guitars that have a high reflective surface if that matters. I have my own lighting but if there is one with a popup or built on flash that would be ok.

$500. max shipped.

The closest thing to a $500 camera is the D50 from nikon, and thats $700 with kit lens, which is quite a bit more than $500.

Check out the S2IS or the new S3IS, with ISO 800.

S3IS(realesed in may)


S2IS -$499 US

dSLR is overkill if you just wanted something for taking pics for ebay. But you said night shots so forget what just said.

You can pick up the Pentax DL body for about $460 @bhphoto.com and pick up a good used lens for the camera for about $50 or so that will cover most shots. Or you can get the body and lens kit for around $550 with 18-55mm lens

other then that you need to get a PnS camera. There are sooo many different choice for under $500. Unless if give us more detail on what shooting at night is you can pick just about any PnS camera.
