Snap Slr Photo
New to photography, and need help!?

I recently applied for a photography course at my high school, and I'm with many desire to learn all about the mysterious world of photography. I have had many good photos taken with my Olympus Camera (do not remember the brand .. will be published when find out), but my photography recommends a Digital Camera with SLR or place to snap. I was thinking of getting one anyway even better camera, because mine is quite old, so I was just looking for opinions on good cameras ranging from $ 100-500. My teacher also recommends Canon Nikon brand or, as would normally expect the camera with the brand. Also, if you have any photo manipulation software that I recommend to use as well, that would cool. I know for certain that we will use the room light, but I have no experience with Photoshop .. Thanks!

Sony A200 with 18-70mm lens. Much better than the D40.

Cool Cameras including the Casio EX-F1 Review
