There are a wealth of crop frame cameras on the market these days, and many of the bodies have as many features as full frame cameras, but with a much smaller price tag.
Full frame cameras still have their advantages, though.
The term "full frame" means that the digital sensor in the camera is the same size as an old strip of 35mm film. If you're serious about photography, and if you're thinking about making a career from it, these are the cameras to consider, despite price tags commonly of $2,000 and higher.
