    I like my Nikon N65, it works well, takes great shots. I bet you can find them for under $80.

    Any Canon EOS camera will do the trick for you, they use EF lenses, but cannot use and EF-S lenses that you might have for you XT. The XT can use either but EF-S lenses are for digital 1.6 crop cameras (except the 10D).

    I would check your local craigslist and newspaper ads, don't worry about features so much because for a class you are usually requires to shoot in manual mode anyway.

    Edit: There's a rebel with a kit lens on craigslist in St.Louis for $100, you can find these deals everywhere. Ive even see 1 series cameras go for next to nothing.

    A fully manual SLR or an SLR that can be used fully manual?

    Makes a huge difference. It would be nice to have lenses that you could use after you have finished the course.

    I've seen Nikon F5's go for $300 lately. Any good 35mm should be available at reasonable prices. My favorite is the Nikon F3, pre AF but a rugged camera.
