Ask yourself the same question before putting a step into that store. What will you use the DSLR camera for? Travelling? Sports? Macro Photography? There is a perfect camera for the type of photography that you wanted to learn.

For instance, if you are going to use the camera for traveling then you should pick a model that is lightweight so that you can carry it around with you without the inconvenience of bulky gears and equipment.
