You can get some pretty decent bridge cameras (which fill the gap between compact and DSLR) for that price. They offer the level of control close to a DSLR. While image quality is lower than what you'd get from a DSLR, you still get some pretty decent results, more than good enough for the majority of people. I wouldn't go for a DSLR until you are certain that you really want to get into proper photography.I guess the question is what you want from your camera. Are you the sort of person who like having full control over your camera and adjusting settings or would you just photograph on auto mode? What sort of things would you be photographing mostly?Btw, those photos are pretty good, I wouldn't have known they had come out of an ipad

Quote from: Busfanatic101 on December 23, 2015, 01:59:06 PMThat is a pretty broad and general range of photography, without any specific features that you would need to look for. If it is going to be spending lots of time at the beach with the risk of coming into contact with water and sand, you may need to consider those waterproof weatherproof cameras. Otherwise, both Nikon and Canon at least make nice cameras, although you won't be able to get the better cameras with your budget. Remember, a tripod is crucial if you are considering night photography
