Ok photogs… what is the best DSLR to buy for starting out as a wedding photographer? Googling this made my head explode.
We have a distinguished group of working photographers associated with DigitalAppleJuice, so I emailed our band of merry with this question.

It depends on how much you can spend.
As usual you get what you pay for!
If you want the best and can afford it,
the Nikon D3x is as good as they get.
One step down is the Nikon D3.
If you want a really good camera while paying less the D700 is still a full size sensor and around $2700.
A good model which is not a full size sensor and also does HD video is the Nikon D90 or the D5000.
For my money if I was starting out I would try and get the D700 if I could afford it.
All can be found @ www.Nikon.com
Hope this helps!

I’ll post more as they write back.
