    Look through the used departments at Adorama and B&H. Any DSLR 6 MP or greater is good for starting out. Because of the wide availability of lenses in all price ranges, I'd get a Canon or Nikon.

    Right now you can get a Digital Rebel XT (8 MP) with 18-55mm lens for $299 used at Adorama. You really can't beat that.
    0206B003 Canon Digital Rebel Xt Chrome W/18-55

    Another route you could possibly take if you're willing to sacrifice some quality and the lack of interchangeable lenses is a high quality point-and-shoot like the Canon Powershot G11. The upside to this is it is very portable, but I'd honestly skip it and go straight for the DSLR.

    Good luck!
