Hey everyone - I'm a college student and I just signed up for a photography class, but I don't know anything about cameras (aside from which ones are pretty). Under the course description, it says this: "STUDENTS MUST PROVIDE THEIR OWN 35-MM SINGLE-LENS REFLEX OR DIGITAL CAME RA THAT CAN BE OPERATED UNDER MANUAL MODE AND WITH OFF-CAMERA FLASH." I really don't know what my options are. Obviously, I don't need a camera for a professional... but I don't exactly want a toy either. I love to travel and hope to travel a lot once I graduate, so I'd like to take this along with me. This is something I'd like to become good at, and I figure I'll have this camera for a while. That being said, I'm still a college student living off ramen, so I need something affordable (under $400). Can anyone give me some recommendations? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
