    I'm taking some photo classes and the teacher says I'm ready for a step up over my compact 12 pxl cybershot :)

    But I'm a bit nervous since I have never owned something more advanced that a compact, he says it would be good for me to own one wit removable lens and a diaphragm to improve my pics.

    Also something that is affordable, also wish accesories to get?

    I',m a newbie on this things so any tip is welcome, I really like the lumixs and canons.

    Here's so examples I took wit my cybershot:

    Hmm do you have a budget range?

    The Nikon D40 and D60 might be good bets, however, I don't know if you blow up photos a lot because the D40 is 6 MP, the D60 is 10 MP.

    Both are excellent cameras if you don't have much to spend though. You can get a full kit for about $250 for the D40, and probably $250-300 for the D60.

    Depending on what you shoot, you might need to get an extra zoom lens like the 55-200, especially for dogs and animals.

    If you had more money to spend on a camera though, look at a used D90. The price has come down a lot and it's an absolutely fantastic camera!! It has so much more capabilities than a D40/D60. It's about 600ish used right now.

    As for Canons, the T2i is a good bet. It's going for about $650 new here, $550 used.
