    Ive taken photography back in high school for 4 years and I havnt used a camera or done anything photography related in almost a year. I want to get back into it and buy a cheap camera. I mostly did film in school and some digital, lost most of my work because I left my portfolio at school and never got it. So hopefully when I find the camera I want I can get it soon as possible and start taking pictures again.

    Now I need some help from other photographers, between 150-200 price range is what Im looking for.

    These are the ones Im looking at right now, if theres others in this price range that you could link me too Id appreciate it.

    Well I would go Canon if at all possible. Even though they're slightly more expensive.

      If could find one in that price range I would go for it, Ill keep looking. Im in no rush in getting this because I dont have the money yet and Im still looking for the best one for the price.

        Well if you're serious about getting back into photography I would just get an SLR. It would last you a good 20 years if you kept it in good condition. If you're going for something a little less expensive I might recommend:

        I have no experience with the camera but Canon is the brand to go with and this is one of their cheaper high end cameras.

        You might also want to check Consumer Reports.

          Did you have to make one of those pin hole cameras out of an oatmeal can? That was pretty neat...other than that, though. I didnt pay much attention in photography and didnt really know how to use the more advanced cameras. haha. So most of my pics werent fantastic or anything. Teacher kind of pissed me off in giving me a 79 in my last marking period ever in HS. Well, I was pissed for like a day before, I realized that it didnt really matter but still. I hated seeing a C on there and giving someone a 79 is just a dick move to begin with. lol.

          I could have done better, though. The picture I saw in my head never really was the image that was coming out on the other end.

          Thanks BoneKrusher^

                It's going to be tough finding a good, new SLR for under $200. I'm pretty sure one of the higher end regular digital cameras, which it looks like you're looking at are fine.
