When choosing theres lot of factors.. here are just some: Do you own any lenses? How much are you prepared to invest in future lenses? Do you need a video feature?

You might get a DSLR on ebay for 200 or less.. will struggle for a new though

this isnt a DSLR but is a bridge camera .. its very good for the money though:

this is one of the best value DSLR.. if not the best value:

If you want a camera better than a standard point and shoot but don't want to invest in lenses in future you may want to consider something like a Canon G9. I use that as a weekend camera when I don't want to carry a huge DSLR with me. Has all the features of an DSLR (full manual, as well as auto) and the added bonus is my Canon flash fits on top to give better results with flash photography.

Thanks for the replys.

Whats the difference between a DSLR and a Bridge Camera?

The reason i'm looking for a camera is because she did Photography in school, so i'm looking for a camera similar to what she would of used then.

1st result on google

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridge_camera

Bridge cameras are cameras which fill the niche between the single-lens reflex cameras (SLRs) and the Point-and-shoot camera.[1][2] They are often comparable in size and weight to the smallest Digital SLRs (DSLR), but almost all digital bridge cameras lack an optical viewfinder system (film bridges generally had a lighter version of a reflex finder). In addition, SLRs normally feature interchangeable lenses, while current bridge cameras do not.[3] The phrase has been in use at least since the 1980s,[1] and continues to be used with digital cameras.[2] The term "Bridge camera" was originally used to refer to film cameras which "bridged the gap" between point and shoot cameras and SLRs.[4][5]
