Somebody asked a similar question and they liked my answer so hopefully it will help you out as well. Good Luck There are many things to take into consideration when buying a digital camera. 1) type - There is the point and shoot and SLR. The point and shoot is your basic little camera that you see everyone with these days. They are great because most of the time they choose all the settings for you. All you have to do is point and click. The SLR is a little more intense. However dont let that scare you as once you learn the possibility is there to take much much better pictures than with a point and shoot. SLR's offer you the ability to customize your shot as well as change lenses. 2)Zoom - If you go with a point and shoot look for something that has at least 3 times optical zoom. If you can find more thats great. Optical zoom means the glass in the lens is moving so you will get a zoom but not a loss of quality. Digital zoom on the other hand basically does nothing but crop your image causing lots of resolution loss. 3)Brands - I would have to say the best brands for a point and shoot are Canon and Sony. They both produce a camera with plenty of features and great image quality, not to mention dependability. If you go the SLR route then I would suggest either Nikon or Canon. These two are the main players in the SLR world and for good reason. Take a look at the D40 or D40x from Nikon or the Canon Rebel. 4) Feel - Its got to be comfortable. If it feels awkward avoid it cause chances are you will end up leaving it sitting 5) Ease - Make sure you get a camer that has an auto setting. This way you can use it right out of the box and then as you become more familiar you can play with the different settings 6)LCD a.k.a. the screen on back - make sure you pick a model that has a screen on it you like. You'll be looking at it alot so make sure it feels good on your eyes 7)Batteries - Do you want something that takes disposable batteries so no matter what the situation you can buy some more and always be ready to go. Or would you rather have a rechargeable battery that will last longer but when its out of juice your out of luck? 8)Megapixels - Bigger isn't always better sometimes its overkill. Each mega pixel means 1 million little dots. A good range is 6 to10. I would say get nothing less then 5. Ask your self how large your biggest pictures are going to be. 5 or 6 megapixels will give you nice prints up 8.5x11. The more megapixels you have the larger you can blow up your prints with them still looking nice. 9)Image stabalization - This feature stedys the shot even if your hand isnt, that way you dont ruin those pricless shots with blurry photos. some other nice things to have but not necessary are a macro option which allows really close up shots like those ones you always see of the bee in the flower and also if its weather resistant. You may not be planning on rain but that doesn't mean its not gunna happen. Below is the link to a better article that will defiantly help out more.

You can still find a Canon Rebel (and other Canon Film Cameras) at places like B&H Photo and Adorama. If you only want to use it for this class you can even look to buy a refurbished one from these same places and save a few dollars.
i have a Samsung 630. it's works great just make sure you have rechargable batteries otherwise it's a different story. but i had it for about 6 months and it's great. the videos are excellent to as long as your in enough light. but the pictures are perfect you can take the pictures in the dark to and still get good quality.
Check the source link for help with NiMH rechargeable batteries. With correct care, these batteries should last about five years. CAUTION Do not overcharge ... batteries can be severely damaged. Use an automatic two or more hour Energizer smart charger with safety timer, temperature monitor and trickle charge technology ($9.76 at Walmart). For longer life, batteries should be charged often and kept in active use. To preserve battery charge, use the view finder and not the LCD when possible. The last source link will show most of the cameras out there with prices. Check this camera. FUJIFILM - FinePix 10.0-Megapixel Digital. This is more camera for the money. Wide-angle shooting, a 12x optical zoom and picture stabilization mode combine in this camera for exceptional shooting performance, even at a distance. Plentiful scene modes, autofocus and automatic white balance controls make this camera a snap to operate. Life time Warranty (Parts & Labor) You may be able to find it on the Internet for a lower price. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?... ... This could be the best slim line camera. http://shopping.yahoo.com/p:Sony%20Cyber... ... Many of the new cameras come with only an LCD display. Would suggest that you find one that also has an optical view finder because the LCD screen is almost impossible to see in bright sun. Higher mega pixels may not really be the best thing to look for. It is more expensive, takes longer to process, and may not be needed unless you are making a really large picture or blowing up a small part of a picture. The information about my camera is just to show that you don't need the biggest and best just know how to use the one you have. My camera has 5.2 mega pixel, but I use 3 most of the time because it gives great results, is faster, and takes less memory. Also, it only has a 3 x optical zoom and 7x digital zoom. I never use the digital zoom because making pictures larger works better on the computer. This is an old camera, but everyone is impressed with the quality pictures it takes ... like magic. Check with the Geeks in several stores and compare prices. Ask what cameras they own. Once you select a camera read all about it in the owner's manual.
