    Hey I'm a bit of a beginner with photography. I've been shooting pics for the last couple months with a point and shoot Kodak camera. But I've been messing around with a lot of the settings and started to get some decent (in my opinion) pictures, and was wondering where should I go next
    I'm looking to spend no more than $550 and I will definitely be buying books\spending time reading to develop and further skills\knowledge of whatever camera I get. Below are some shots I took with the horrible Kodak V705, any pros can judge and tell me if they're any decent

    The usual path is to step up to an SLR type camera. They have many advantages over most non-SLR digital cameras. One being a much larger sensor and another being interchangeable lenses. A DSLR would give a good tool that will allow you to expand your system as you delve deeper into photography.

    For $550 you can get yourself a Canon Rebel XSI ($460) and a 50mm 1.8 ($90) from a reputable dealer online. While this won't allow for zooming, it will give you a great camera to use, and a sharp lens to grow with. Don't go with a cheap zoom, most people will eventually not use it once they collect better glass. Even now that I have a set of lenses, I still use my 50mm 1.8.

    Hope this helps,

    Steve
