I would like to get into photography, but need a new digital camera to do so. I have a feeling my current Kodak Easyshare 2 MP camera just won't cut it. I am looking for a relatively inexpensive camera good for taking outdoor shots. Specifically, sky shots, lightning, and scenery. I've considered getting an SLR, but how are SLRs different from regular digital cameras? I also want a camera that will let me change as many settings as possible. My budget max is $300. What would be a good digital camera for me to invest in?
