    Digital or film?

    And what do you want to take pictures of?

    What have you used before?

    Very tough price range. You might need to extend it to $600 USD for a DSLR with kit lens.

    For that money you really should just try ebay.
    You will find something, but I don´t know if you´ll get anything very decent.
    Consider a semi-compact...maybe a better deal.

    Your first photo lesson starts here. Photo equipment does not come cheap. If you want something decent that you can grow with in the digital arena, you'll have to extend your budget. You can get quite a bit of nice film gear with that price range, but you'll be spending money on film, developing, and scanning if you so choose.

    Keep at it. Study as much about photography as you can, and save some money. When the time is right and you are ready, you'll move on to new equipment which will help you unleash your creativity.
