i came upon your question when i was doing research trying to accomplish the same goal. I ended up with a Canon EOS 300D, the original Digital Rebel, which in 2003 was the first DSLR sold for under $1000. now, in Jan 2013, you can get one with a lens on ebay for under $100. I am loving the manual controls, over focus, aperture, shutter speed etc. It might not have all the bells and whistles of the latest DSLRs, but it is a great place to get started, and feel like a great deal for under $100
