I'm looking for a beginner camera with good manual options but not as advanced where I don't know what half the things do a year after I buy it. I was reading through this forum and I found some help but it seems like it also depends where you live and what type of weather you get. I'm living right in boston, across from the Commons (seems like a good place to take winter pictures). I have roughly 400-600 to spend on a camera. I work at a place (www.cex.com) that has a small selection of nice cameras that are used. I will get the model numbers within my price range tonight when I go in. But are there any cameras that you might want to suggest that are good for my area and price? Boston weather varies a lot so I figured this would come into affect. I'm aiming towards digital since I've been using photoshop for half of a decade.
