I am taking my very first photography class and it begins in a few weeks. I need a 35mm camera that has the following: adjustable aperture, shutter speed, and focus controls, also a light meter. I am very poor and taking this class because I have always loved photography and now I want to know what I am doing. I am looking at getting a Canon EOS Rebel 2000 but I'm not sure that would suffice. Does anyone have any camera suggestions for me?
