  1. Do you want to support a local store or shop online?
  2. How much weight do you want to be carrying around?
  3. How large of a camera would you want to carry? A full dSLR, a compact camera, or something in the middle such as a Canon Rebel.
  4. How much do you want to spend on your camera?
  5. Do you already have current gear of a particular brand?
  6. What flash card do you prefer using? CF, SD?
  7. Do you require a hot-shoe for an external flash?
  8. Do you prefer a live-display feature on your camera?
  9. What is the most popular camera in your local photography club? This may make it easier to follow lessons.
  10. What is your skill level? Do you really need a camera above your current skill level?
This is a start!
