But, the 10D came to mind, seeing as they can be attained for rather cheap, and right around the price my dad told me I could get something for a graduation present ($200)
So my question, what should I know (if anything) about a DSLR? I'm no camera noob, in the video world anyways. I own a little Canon Vixia HF R20 for recording random things, and use a JVC HM-100 for other things.

www.joshunruh.com All the shots on my site have been taken with a 10D.
It's a great camera. You could drive nails with the body, it's really tough.
Get that body, a 50 f1.8, and you'll have a great starting out camera.

it is getting old though, so it might possibly start to show its age at some point, but for a new user, you should get tons of use out of it.
my only suggestion would be to learn how many shutter activations are on the body. keep in mind shutters do burn out over time.

One word: D70.
Just letting you know, Canon has some of the best video cameras in the world. And their DSLRs have had the lead in video for quite some time now. Especially their affordable DSLRs.
But video and photo are two different things so you might to get the same perfoemance in photo as in video with a Canon.
The thing is, Canon is a brilliant brand with great cameras, so you do get top level performance for the price.
But with Nikon you get over the top performance.
