College is as good a time as any to learn responsibility, but don't expect to walk out of the experience with all your gear unscathed."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1345476294.usr15670.jpeg" /></p><p>What do you get when gadget editors pick cameras for students? You get US$3000 SLRs in the equation. I'm not sure what kind of college these people went to, but I am quite sure most students aren't going to be able to splurge that kind of money, especially in these times. In fact, there are a lot of high-end picks here, when there are plenty of cheaper but good cameras out in the market. Particularly for DSLRs - there're competent cameras like the <a href="http://astore.amazon.com/digitalhomethoughts-20/detail/B00894YX2U" target="_blank">Canon Rebel T4i/EOS 650D</a>&nbsp;or the higher-specified <a href="http://astore.amazon.com/digitalhomethoughts-20/detail/B0042X9LCO" target="_blank">Nikon D7000</a>&nbsp;that will take great pictures without breaking the bank. What are your own personal recommendations?</p>
